Firefox 17.0.1 fixed, especially done for mdv 2010 - 64bit

Post by NicCo »

Dago68 ported a different version of Firefox, that should fix old problem with Mandriva 2010
at least we hope so, in his test this Firefox never crashed, and were present also all MIB BP

This uses a different kind of packaging where languages are inside the main firefox program

Mandriva 2010.3 - 64bit only

Firefox 17.0.1 for Mandriva 2010.3 - 64bit
http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/2010.3/ ... ox_17.0.1/

You could add in this way the testing repository

Code: Select all

urpmi.addmedia --update fixed-firefox  http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/2010.3/64/testing/firefox_17.0.1/

the freeze with FireFox happened only for the 64bit arch, so no 2010 32bit port should be necessary

bye, NicCo

Hi, as soon as possibile I'll try on my Mandriva 2010.2 x86_64 because the last release (firefox-16.0.1) crash as usual.

However, I tried for Mandriva 2010.2 x86_64 and it doesn't work.
I get and error:

Code: Select all

$ firefox -safe-mode
/usr/lib64/firefox/firefox: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/xulrunner/libxul.so: undefined symbol: gdk_window_get_visual

The last well working Firefox for MDV 2010 is version 12,
to install it

Code: Select all

urpme -a firefox ; urpmi firefox-it-12
then you can block the update properly editing file
/etc/urpmi/skip.list

if you need a more recent firefox version, you have two chances:
a> to try a generic linux Firefox binary, creating a link in the desktop
otherwise
b> you can install a more recent distro, like ROSA Marathon o Fresh

Salve Akiro,

questo errore è dovuto ad un gtk+2 vecchia versione che non riconosce questo simbolo.

Questo firefox è stato compilato per la 2010.3 e spero che tu abbia tutti gli aggiornamenti.

Buona serata

ok, grazie. L'immaginavo ma ho provato lo stesso :) ed ora purtroppo non posso far l'upgrade.

Grazie, ciao
