Thread: Illegal Instruction AIX Firefox

  1. Illegal Instruction AIX Firefox

    Downloaded off IBM site Firefox 1.5.0.12 plus the 16 rpm
    files using XP and burnt them to cd.
    Using same CD installed them on

    (1) 44P running AIX 5.3 and have a working browser on P2P network.

    (2) F80 running AIX 5.2 the rpm's and Firefox installed okay with no
    errors. Running firefox I get errors. Uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it
    which smit said went okay but on trying to run it I get the same errors.
    The errors are
    # /usr/bin/firefox
    aixXLoadIM : 1M Load Error [en AU.8859-15]
    -aixXLoadIM returns NULL. -
    -aixXLoadIM : 1M Load Error [en AU.8859-15]
    -aixXLoadIM returns NULL. -
    -aixXLoadIM : 1M Load Error [en AU.8859-15]
    -aixXLoadIM returns NULL. -
    -aixXLoadIM : 1M Load Error [en AU.8859-15]
    -aixXLoadIM returns NULL. -
    -aixXLoadIM : 1M Load Error [en AU.8859-15]
    -aixXLoadIM returns NULL. -
    -aixXLoadIM : 1M Load Error [en AU.8859-15]
    -aixXLoadIM returns NULL. -
    -aixXLoadIM : 1M Load Error [en AU.8859-15]
    -aixXLoadIM returns NULL. -
    -aixXLoadIM : 1M Load Error [en AU.8859-15]
    -aixXLoadIM returns NULL. -
    - /usr/mozilla/firefox/run-mozilla.sh[36]: 17812 Illegal instruction
    (coredump)

    Uninstalled firefox again off AIX 5.2 machine.

    Using #echo $LANG
    On AIX 5.3 machine LANG=en_US
    On AIX 5.2 machine LANG=en_AU.8859-15
    Changed 5.2 machine to LANG=en_US
    and all " aixXLoadIM : 1M Load Error [en AU.8859-15] -aixXLoadIM returns
    NULL. - " now gone

    but this original error
    " - /usr/mozilla/firefox/run-mozilla.sh[36]: 17812 Illegal instruction
    (coredump) "
    has now changed to this
    " - /usr/mozilla/firefox/run-mozilla.sh[36]: 13502 Illegal instruction
    (coredump) "
    Firefox opened for a brief second then closed and error came on screen.

    After LANG changes made, reinstalled Firefox which smit said went okay.

    Would appreciate assistance in fixing firefox on AIX 5.2 machine.

    I think most of the folks here are running consumer type OSs.

    Perhaps you could ask on the AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications mailing
    list?
