Can't install firefox 1.0.2 on MDK 10.1
I just downloaded firefox from the link that flatline provided (see post http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/top...ight=firefox+1). I used this command to unpack and install the rpm file:
The unpacking and installation seemed to go fine. The problem occurs when I try to launch firefox. When i click on the menu item called firefox in teh start menu (placed by the firefox installation process), the panel shows firefox trying to load, but after a few seconds, it just disappears. Then when i try to load firefox from the command line with firefox &,,,,,,,it just gives out this error:
[root@Mercury alex]# rpm -i firefox-1.0.2-1mcnl.i586.rpm
I also tried to download the *tar.gz version of firefox and before it could install it kept spitting out an invalid pointer error on line 56 of the ./firefox-installer file.
[alex@Mercury alex]$ firefox &
[alex@Mercury alex]$ SCIM: im_module_init
free(): invalid pointer 0x82055d8!
free(): invalid pointer 0x82055b0!
Pasted below is the part of /var/log/messages during the time period that firefox was installed:
