  1. Firefox 2.0.0.4 crashes on Slackware 10.0

    System is running slackware 10.0 and firefox 2.0.0.4 with current
    versions of java and flash player plugins
    When the browser goes to sites like yahoo games the browser crashes.

    The "only" error message that is ever received is :
    /usr/lib/firefox/run-mozilla.sh: line 424: 9731 Segmentation
    fault "$prog" ${1+"$@"}


    The information I've read indicates that libjavaplugin_oji.so needs to
    be symlinked
    ln -s /usr/lib/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

    I'm at a total loss here

    Any ideas?

    On my Slack 10.0 and Slack 10.2 boxes, Firefox 2.x crashes shortly after
    visiting websites that use flash if I use Flash Player plugin version 9.x
    but not when I use Flash plugin version 7.x. My hunch is that your problem
    could be similar to mine. Sorry, I tried several remedies gathered on the
    net but haven't been able to fix it. Using Flash 7.0.69 is the only thing
    that works for me.

    And it seems not to be browser specific. As I mentioned in an aside
    a few weeks ago in a thread about something else, I've mozilla and galeon
    crash on Slackware 10 since I added Flash, and it is indeed 9. I haven't
    actually weeded things out to determine if it's Flash or some combination
    with the Nvidia driver (that I added long before but does seem to show
    some oddity at times).

    There's a pre-release version of Flash available, v9.0 r60, that now
    uses the XEmbed system instead of whatever the old type was called (Xt
    mainloop or something).

    http://blogs.adobe.com/penguin.swf/2...reen_beta.html

    So far it seems to be more stable on my 10.2 + FF 2.0.0.4 setup.

    I don't remember where I've seen this, it might have been on this
    group or on alt.os.linux.debian, but a few months ago someone
    suggested that this error could be solved by installing the flash
    plugin in the applications plugin directory instead of in
    /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.

    That worked for me. I had installed flash9 in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.
    After making symlinks in /usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.13/plugins on my
    slack 10.2 the mozilla crashes were over.

    Thanks guys. I'll try your suggestions. Best regards.

    Yes, that was me.

    Exactly. If using Firefox 1.5.0.9 (for example), the symlinks would go
    into /usr/lib/firefox-1.5.0.9/plugins . Adjust path to your particular
    browser/version. Works like a champ.

    You're welcome.

  8. Re: Firefox 2.0.0.4 crashes on Slackware 10.0

    Thanks for all the suggestions!

    I've tried placing the flash9 files within the mozilla plugin and
    componets directories which didn't help.

    I also tried using the suggested beta update which also failed (still
    crashing)

    The only thing that does seem to fix the problem is downgrading to
    flash 7 though there are some odd funkness that comes with using it on
    some sites.

    About the only thing I can think of is looking for version 8 (if it
    exists) and see how high I can go before the issue comes back.

    I really hate the idea of having to upgrade slackware just because of
    a funky plugin

    It doesn't. Flash went from 7.0r69 to 9.0r31, with no versions (for
    Linux) inbetween.
    And that 9.0 release has a tendency to crash your browser on anything
    EARLIER than Slackware 11.0.
    We had to go back to Flash 7 too, untill all our machines were upgraded
    TO Slackware 11.

    Yea, that's pretty much what I concluded from my hrs of searching :\

    Thank you though for the confirmation.

    I think the matter is pretty much closed at this point.

    To recap for any who may come across this looking for the same.
    Downgrade your flash to 7, and prepare to upgrade to slack 11 or higher

    Seems so, which is good as it adds up to the continuing story
    of reasons why *not* to use 'Flash' decoys )

    Flash can't be downgraded, it's an inborn downgrade loot...

    > , and prepare to upgrade to slack 11 or higher


    Well, I'd rate the 11 as an intermediate step, I was happy
    with 8,8.1,9 and 10 (10.1) and I am very content of current -current
    but the middle struggle with the alsa/kernel/crypt/udev/whatever going
    rollercoaster every funky pair of hours certainly didn't ease
    Pat's work within the 11th step!

    I lived without it, but finally succumbed specifically because of a
    certain site that offered me chances at getting things for nothing and
    winning things. If it was merely an information site, I'd really just
    complain to the owner of the site (as I have done in the past), but
    somehow greed won over in this case. Though, I did email the company
    to complain about their horrid website months back, so it's not as if
    I gave in easily.

    It bears repeating. Any small organization that uses Flash for their
    website are fools, or have fools for their web designer. They can't
    afford to turn people away, in the misbegotten belief that the masses
    need High Gloss in order to react to anything.

    That online poker is a real bitch, eh? How much has it cost you so
    far?

    Always complain to an online gambling casino. They will get right
    on top of things, especially if they already have your credit card.
