thunderbird won't load: XPCOMGlueLoad error


I rebooted my PC today with the newest stable kernel, and thunderbird won't open.
Code:
michael@caitlyn ~ $ thunderbird
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib64/thunderbird-52.1.1/libxul.so:
/usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.23' not found (required by /usr/lib64/thunderbird-52.1.1/libxul.so)
Couldn't load XPCOM.
Any hints on how to fix this? Thank you in advance to all who try.

I think you either:
- are running slackware64-14.2 and have installed on it the mozilla-thunderbird package from current.
- are running current but your system is not fully updated.

Yesterday, as I do EVERY Sunday, I ran slackpkg update and slackpkg upgrade-all. They both completed successfully. I suppose next you'll ask if I ran them as root. I did.

Just in case, I ran those two commands again today. Here's the output:
Code:
root@caitlyn:~# slackpkg update

According to your slackpkg output, you are not running 14.2, but are running -current or at least have a weird mixture of the two. These versions are two vastly different things. 14.2 is the latest stable and -current is the development branch.

It might be beneficial to edit your /etc/slackpkg/mirrors file to comment out the -current mirror and uncomment a 14.2 mirror. Then you can try to run slackpkg reinstall slackware64 to see if it fixes your issues. Depending on what all you have installed/configured, it might be easier to just wipe and reinstall Slackware (although, it is certainly possible to recover from this).

I am too slow ... bassmadrigal beat me to it ( again )

You say in the most recent post:

I am running Slackware 14.2. 64bit. Etc etc.
But your slackpkg is configured for slackware-current ( note the bold text ):

whatever you upgrade/reinstall with slackpkg, be sure to not having something in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist: if you have, for instance, put something in there to avoid updating your multilib packages, be sure to have installed the latest ones corresponding to the slackware version you intend to keep (wheter it will be 14.2 or current).

Yes, you are right. But as you see can there is no obvious solution. It means - at least for me - I need to know more about it to go further.
It looks like I'm late now, so it is just a remark.... (but again as you see more info gave better responses)

It might be beneficial to edit your /etc/slackpkg/mirrors file to comment out the -current mirror and uncomment a 14.2 mirror. Then you can try to run slackpkg reinstall slackware64 to see if it fixes your issues. Depending on what all you have installed/configured, it might be easier to just wipe and reinstall Slackware (although, it is certainly possible to recover from this).
I did the 'slackpkg reinstall slackware64' thing you recommended (after making SURE that the mirror I had uncommented in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors WAS 14.2 Slackware64). The computer spent a couple of hours downloading and installing binaries. At the end the thunderbird error remains unchanged. Do I need to reboot after doing all of this? I'm going to do it anyway.

The reboot didn't improve the situation any that I can see. What's the next step? I believe I am running pure Slackware64 14.2 now...

Were you running multilib? What are the contents of your /etc/slackpkg/blacklist?

And it looks like Thunderbird might still be the -current package, because "/usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.23' not found" means it is trying to use gcc7 instead of gcc5. Can you run the following and paste the output here?

Code:
slackpkg -dialog=off -batch=on -default_answer=y reinstall mozilla-thunderbird

post the output of the following commands
Code:
grep -v ^\# /etc/slackpkg/blacklist
Code:
grep -v ^\# /etc/slackpkg/mirrors
Code:
ls -1 /var/log/packages/{gcc,mozilla-thunderbird}*

Because of the "little dance" that the glibc package has to do in order to upgrade itself on a running system, backing up to the version in 14.2 from the one in -current is not as easy as upgradepkg'ing to the earlier version. You'll need to fix it manually.

I'd recommend dropping a copy of glibc-2.23-x86_64-1.txz from Slackware64 14.2 in / so that it'll be easy to find later.

Then, boot the installer, mount your main partition on /mnt, and do this:

rm /mnt/lib64/*-2.25.so
ROOT=/mnt installpkg /mnt/glibc-2.23-x86_64-1.txz

After a reboot your machine should be working properly again. Hope this helps.

Looking for mozilla-thunderbird in package list. Please wait... DONE

No packages match the pattern for reinstall. Try:

	/usr/sbin/slackpkg install|upgrade
