    On an AIX v6.1 system you need the RPMs as described on
    your web pages, then you also need the AIX v6.1 fileset
    X11.compat.lib.X11R6
    then you need to do:
    export LIBPATH=/usr/lpp/X11/lib/R6
    and then this firefox binary will start ok.
    This is because AIX v6.1 uses X11R7 by default and the
    X11R7 version of libX11.a does not have a couple of
    entry points which this firefox binary needs.

    If you don't have the X11.compat.lib.X11R6 fileset
    or don't set the LIBPATH environment variable the
    firefox startup will fail with the messages:
    # /opt/firefox/firefox
    exec(): 0509-036 Cannot load program /opt/firefox/firefox-bin
    because of the following errors:
    rtld: 0712-001 Symbol _XUnregisterFilter was referenced
    from module firefox-bin(), but a runtime definition
    of the symbol was not found.
    rtld: 0712-001 Symbol _XRegisterFilterByType was referenced
    from module firefox-bin(), but a runtime definition
    of the symbol was not found.

    The common mode builds of Firefox 2.0.0.11 and Seamonkey 1.1.7 are
    available at:

    "http://www.linkitup.de/ForAIX/Firefox" and
    "http://www.linkitup.de/ForAIX/Mozilla"

    for CPU specific optimized builds stay tuned, as I wasn't prepared doing
    so many builds in such a short time on my ancient machines ;-)

    The patch for running on AIX 6.1 is described now on my Firefox page.
