sunbird 0.3 does not start, error: Segmentation fault : "$prog" ${1+"$@"}


Hi!

I'm using Ubuntu 6.10 on my laptop.

Everything works great so far, except Sunbird.

I tried to install it from source, but it failed with a library error (not that it is not installed, it's an error compiling it.)
So I tried the precompield package from mozilla.org .

Uncompressing went fine, as expected, but it wont start.
Instead, I get the following error:

Code:
$ ./sunbird
./run-mozilla.sh: line 131:  8151 Segmentation fault      "$prog" ${1+"$@"}
I searched the net for this issue, but only problems, with the predecessing version were discussed.
Most of those replies, advised to update to the latest version of Sunbird.

I believe this is a bug in a shellscript or something.

Please help

Edit the file and change the first line from #!/bin/sh to #!/bin/bash and try again.

If you want to retry compiling, why don't you install the -dev versions of the packages it needs. Might shed some more light about the issue.

Hi everybody!

I'd like to know, if anybody has found a fix in the meantime to this problem.
I am encountering the same problem with firefox and thunderbird this morning!

I hope to hear from you!

Best wishes,

Bernard
