Mozilla upgrade to 1.7 breaks slack!


I did a fresh install of slackware 9.1, and when i upgraded mozilla from 1.4 to 1.7 with swaret, most all of my gui apps broke:
Code:
bash-2.05b$ mozilla&
[1] 12388
bash-2.05b$ *** Registering -webcal handler.
*** Registering text/calendar handler.
*** Registering webcal protocol handler.

[1]+  Exit 1                  mozilla
bash-2.05b$ galeon
/usr/bin/galeon-bin: relocation error: /usr/lib/./libgnomecanvas-2.so.0: undefined symbol: gdk_threads_lock
bash-2.05b$ epiphany
/usr/bin/epiphany-bin: relocation error: /usr/lib/./libgnomecanvas-2.so.0: undefined symbol: gdk_threads_lock
bash-2.05b$ gedit
gedit: relocation error: gedit: undefined symbol: gdk_threads_lock
bash-2.05b$ gftp
/usr/bin/gftp-gtk: relocation error: /usr/bin/gftp-gtk: undefined symbol: gdk_threads_lock
bash-2.05b$
I tried removing everything and reinstalling those programs from the 9.1 repository, but it didn't work. Does anyone know how I might fix this? Thank you.

i can duplicate it every time like clockwork: fresh install, upgrade kernel to get nforce ethernet, install swaret, upgrade mozilla, crash.

Ditch Swaret. . .

Do the upgrade by hand. . .

when you do a fresh install and choose to format the disk, everything gets erased, right? nothing gets left behind, does it? i'm just wondering because to format the same amount of space in windows would take 10-15-20 minutes or whatever, but in linux it takes under a minute. more like 5-10 seconds usually, in fact.

That seems about right. . .

Depending on the filesystem formatting can be quick. . .

Don't do a quick format but a thorough? (I believe thats the complete format :-/)

What kernel did you upgrade to?

Did you try '# swaret --dep' ?

Maybe im missing something, but there isn't an upgrade to Mozilla 1.7 for Slack 9.1 (ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar...ches/packages/), so did you use the package in -current to upgrade?

If so, ya, that will break some stuff, as that version of mozilla will probably be built against some library versions you dont have on 9.1. The solution to this would be if you want to run 1.7, you would have to get the source package for Moz 1.7, and build it against your system. Then after that, some applications that were built against Moz 1.4 might not work against 1.7, so you would need to build them against 1.7 after that is installed.

OR...you could upgrade the librarys / applications which are broke with those in -current, and un a 9.1 / current hybrid, but that is too risky (IMHO).

hmm, at one point i had mozilla 1.6 and the gimp 2.x running on slack 9.1 with no problems at all, including galeon, epiphany, etc. everything worked great. i guess enough changed in the packages that it no longer works. and if i do a complete upgrade to current, the whole system just totally breaks with all the relocation errors. that's why i started trying to just upgrade individual packages. i can't imagine using a system with only mozilla 1.4 and gimp 1.2, that is just too far out of date.

i think i give up with slackware and all the library problems. i'm going to stick with arch for now. thanks for the responses.

And neither can I...which is why I built the source packages against my 9.1 install, and everything works fine.

Seriously...its really not very hard to download the source package and run [app].Slackbuild. And ANY distro is going to have these library problems when you cross packages between MAJOR OS versions....duh.

But whatever.

What about doing a search for Mozilla 1.7 under the Slack9.1 tree on linuxpackages.net?

about formatting:

quick format writes just new inodes table, without erasing any existing information actualy ,nor checking bad blocks. (so why it is quik)
format erases info realy and checks bad blocks, and slow format in slackware tends to be slower than on xp.

but mozilla 1.7 seems to have some strangnesses after upgrade.
for me he refuses to download any files. (just nothing happens), had,nt time to resolve this yet..
galeon and konqueror are ok.
