I wanted to try out the new firefox on my ibook. It builds without a problem, but simply segfaults when I try to run it with:

/usr/bin/firefox: line 388: 30658 Segmentation fault $mozbin "$@"

Did anyone manage to get it to run on ppc?

I installed the new firefox this weekend, and it runs fine on my iBook. I even tried a couple of themes and some extensions, and it all worked fine. I use the latest stable gcc and glibc.

Just a very wild guess here, but maybe you have to recompile libpng. (if you are using the latest stable gcc/glibc and didn't yet recompile it after upgrade gcc/glibc)

Thanks for the tip, I'll try it.

And even themes are working for you? I couldn't even get themes to work with the old 0.8 firefox.

EDIT: You sir are now officially my new hero! :D
It works like a charm.
Now I would only be interested in how you got the idea about libpng.

I don't think i tried themes in 0.8, but i tried extensions and those didn't work for sure. The extensions and themes i tried now, did work. (but i have to restart firefox for the new theme to become visible)

About the idea for libpng... after the gcc/glibc upgrade, i wanted to do an upgrade of gtk, which failed at some place where it tries to convert pngs. That reminded me about someone who posted on the gentoo-ppc-user mailinglist that he had to recompile libpng for x11-org to compile. So, since the gtk-build seemed to rely on libpng too, i recompiled libpng and then my gtk compile succeeded. Now since firefox uses libpng too, i thought this might be the same problem.
