not working in puppy 3.01
Code:
firefox-bin: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by libxul.so)

we need a workaround for puppy 3.01

this is a problem originated by Mozilla Foundation: they have decided to move to a to newer Glibc, so, precompiled builds from mozilla site, cannot work on linuxes having older Glibc

in order to make working we need, in puppy 3.01, a new Glibc, that is a not so easy task (replace or adding a newer Glibc, the mother of all libs) avoiding to cause problems with other apps compiled against previous Glibc version

read what ttuuxxx said, I need to do the same thing for Puppy 3.01:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=42553
Quote:
Ok well the Guys at Mozilla figured less mess up Firefox for older distro users, And well 2.14X aims to please older Pc's, So I updated to glibc-2.10.1, I used the Glibc from wary5.0, That way 2.14X should be able to use almost all Wary packages, hmmm probably still might need a couple basic libs, but we'll find out after a bit of test, Probably libs like libpng etc, maybe just a few system links, But as long as the glibC is the same we are 90% there Smile
Now that we no longer are using slackware 12 glibc, Firefox should run fine on 2.14X for another 4 YEARS Smile how's that for support, lol
I also did a couple minor fixes like firefox was missing an icon, The newer Firefox 4 beta 10 dropped libmozjs.so. So Gxine was dead, so I tossed in libmozjs.so from Firepup and gxine now works Smile
Plus added the 2 missing icons for Xarchiver, really this update is all about testing the newer glibc version. The newer glibC has a newer time zone format, so probably we'll have to work on using them, I also left in the older timezone setting files, but we should update to the newer startup script, hmmm maybe even the one from puppy 5 would be nice.
Oh ya the ISO shrank by 2MB Smile
Next I'll work on the devX, it might take some time Smile

possible workaround
mv /usr/libstdc++.EXTENSION mv /usr/libstdc++_old.EXTENSION (and update the symlinks)

make a hack.c with:
#define GLIBCXX_3.4.9

gcc hack.c -o /usr/libstdc++.EXTENSION -lstdc++_old
(may need to add some extra flags)

update the symlinks

I haven't had to do this in a while, so I am sure that I've missed parts.

Hi,

Looking for firefox portable. I came here, however, the file is not present in rapid share. Is there anywhere else I can find the file? How much is the file size?


Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak

Although I can't see the need for a portable firefox, as it can run from wherever it's extracted to, perhaps you could try one of the versions here.

Hi muggins,

The need arised because of a bug in wary530.
Firefox installs well, but now, if we go to Menu->Internet->Seamonkey it opens firefox. Then onwards seamonkey can only be opened by explicit command from terminal.

So I wanted to have a portable version so that I can use seamonkey from menu or desktop.

Can we change/modify code to correct the behavior after firefox install? then it shall be great.


Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak

Thanks muggins.

I got the firefox6 from the link provided by you.
Also I had to get libdbus from ubuntu packages for lucid.

It runs like a horse. Very Happy

Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak

I just got around to booting wary 5.3, and see why firefox took over from seamonkey.

If you open /usr/share/applications/SeaMonkey-web-browser.desktop, in a text editor, you can see the line Exec=mozilla. If you just change this to Exec=seamonkey, there shouldn't be any conflict.

Many thanks muggins.

Now I see. 2-3 days back I was looking closely at seamonkey, firefox, thunderbird. Since they are from same mozilla base, a lot of places they mention "mozilla". Very difficult to know what that word mozilla mean; does it start seamonky/firefox/thunderbird. With that fear may be I couldnt dare to change .desktop file for seamonkey.

I will definitely try it.
