    Mozilla keeps crashing


    I just installed slackware 10.1 on a Dell Latitude D600 and X and Mozilla were working fine. So I switched over to the 2.6 kernel to try and get the wireless card working, which I was able to do. However now Mozilla crashes all the time and it is very annoying. I am also having problems with other programs in X crashing as well and i think the problems might be related. Here is a copy of my syslog showing the lines from the mozilla crash. If you need more information please let me know.

    Did you do anything weird with your kernel (i.e. use unstable/development patches, compile with insane optimizations, etc.)?

    Nope, I am using the bare 2.6 kernel that came prebuilt on the slackware cd. I suppose i could try building the 2.6 kernel and see if that helps. Also when I switched back to using the 2.4 kernel the crashing stoped.

    Thanks for any help.

    Yeah, try building 2.6.x by hand.
