Re: Mozilla suite stability on 2.4/2009Q4
Dang.. I am not on top of my email fer sure.
These are locally built, Q4 in a spoofed 2.4 chroot on a 2.5 host.
(e.g. cd /usr/src/stable && make install DESTDIR=/foo
&& env UNAME_r chroot $DESTDIR)
Sooo, I wouldn't take this too seriously
as I certainly haven't investigated all the possibilities on my end!
Was just kind of putting out feelers if anyone had seen anything
anecdotally before I go chasing this sucker down.
Seems to be all my GTK-or-perhaps-gnome apps -
as evince has been crashing in a similar way too.
Do I need some new GNOME infrastructure stuff of late.. -
I have no idea what kind of daemons gnome is actually requiring
these days.. a quick ps reveals there is no 'bonobo-activation-server'..
but I still launch a 'gnome-settings-daemon' in my .Xinitrc, and dbus is
running just fine.. hmm.
(use a windowmaker + nautilus kludge-top)
though that being said I did muck around with fonts lately..
Pointers welcome! and thanks much.

:Thanks in advance,
Are you using the binary packages from Avalon or did you build
firefox from /usr/pkgsrc from scratch?
I'm thinking we may have introduced some structural incompatibility
between 2.4 and 2.5 that is causing the Q4 binaries built on 2.5
to fail on 2.4.
