Re: Firefox 51.0.1-1 on Debian Sid/experimental PowerPC (PPC32): Segmentation fault

Hi Herminio,

If you want to backtrace Firefox, then you need the debug version of Firefox. Please add the following repositories to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://debug.mirrors.debian.org/debian-debug/ unstable-debug main
deb http://debug.mirrors.debian.org/debian-debug/ experimental-debug main

You have to install the Firefox package with dbgsym attached:

apt-get install -t experimental firefox-dbgsym

Many thanks for your help.

I ran firefox 51 on my iBook G4 running Sid. I was able to get a backtrace. I am posting it here.
This backtrace is not usable, it doesn't contains any symbols:

Thread 1 "firefox.real" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x1ae2ddf8 in ?? () from /usr/lib/firefox/libxul.so
(gdb) bt
#0  0x1ae2ddf8 in ?? () from /usr/lib/firefox/libxul.so
#1  0x1ae2eed4 in ?? () from /usr/lib/firefox/libxul.so
#2  0x20017584 in ?? ()

The "??" indicates you don't have debug symbols installed.
