Subject: mozilla/unstable + java-jvm = crash
Date: 29 Nov 2002 09:10:34 -0500
I installed the mozilla-unstable branch yesterday.
the Java-jvm plugin that I had before was no longer listed as available so I
tried to reinstall the java plugin from the sun.com website.
I did the install as 'root' so that I wouldn't have any problems with access
rights for installing the plugin.
Under Mozilla, the About Plugins section shows the java jvm as installed and
Installed the jvm from java.sun.com.
File name: libjavaplugin_oji.so
Mozilla crashes with:
java_vm: relocation error:
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/java2/lib/i386/libjava.so: symbol __libc_wait,
version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference
INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Could not read ack from browser
System error?:: Resource temporarily unavailable
libc.so.6 is version 2.3.1-5
Does anyone know how to get this working? I was just fine before under
mozilla 1.0 (IIRC the jvm was 1.2 or 1.3).
(Everything else about this Moz install is good!)
