    Re: Howto Install 32 bit Firefox with Flash w/sound and Java for AMD64

    After many frustrations trying to get flash and java to work on 64 bit firefox 3, I decided to resort to ******* anything that would provide me with basic functionality expected of a browser in this day and age.

    On Halfwit Heron, I have had no success even when resorting to running 32 bit.

    Here is what I get when I run the firefox 32 bit script:
    Setting up ia32-sun-java6-bin (6-06-0ubuntu1) ...
    /var/lib/dpkg/info/ia32-sun-java6-bin.postinst: line 88: 8955 Segmentation fault $basedir/bin/java -client -Xshare:dump $xmarg > /dev/null
    dpkg: error processing ia32-sun-java6-bin (--configure):
    subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 139
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    ia32-sun-java6-bin
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    And I get a series of these:
    java[8329]: segfault at c rip 4a6dcf39 rsp ffd168d0 error 4
    Firefox 32 bit does not run at all. When I try to run it, I get this:
    esd: no process killed
    Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-lookup.c: 327: _dl_lookup_symbol_x: Assertion `version == ((void *)0) || (flags & ~(DL_LOOKUP_ADD_DEPENDENCY | DL_LOOKUP_GSCOPE_LOCK)) == 0' failed!
    So, I downloaded
    swiftweasel32-2.0.0.14_athlon64-32bit_ubuntu_7.10-8.04_AMD64
    That installed no problem, however, when I run it I get this:
    swiftweasel-bin[6186]: segfault at 0 rip 0 rsp ffbe4830 error 14
    I'm almost not surprised because I get segfaults when trying to run wine and skype and who knows what else will turn up. Hardy is really trying my patience.

    I've also found that gnash, now reinstalled, no longer plays video from some sites, such as youtube, although it used to cope with that. So what options are left? More waiting, I suppose.

    Oh, and by the way, if anyone from Sun or Adobe happen to be out there, please lean closer to the monitor... no, a little closer .... that's it:


    YOU SUCK!

    To tell you the truth, I'm not sure why they are lime green. But looking at the output made me look back at what I had written. There was a mistake in the commands. I had the wrong order in the last command, it should have been.
    Code:
    sudo ln -s /usr/local/java/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib32/firefox32/plugins/

    I actually had given up on having flash in 64bit environment... and upgrading to hardly heron ground my productivity to a halt. I went around and around with installs until I stumbled upon the easiest:

    Basic easy alt install of ubuntu then apt-get install kubuntu-desktop .... everything worked! The first time ever in 64 bit I've simultaneously had flash, sound, wireless, and wired LAN all functional at the same moment.

    I was amazed and stunned at how well it worked. I installed the free version of the flash player in apt.

    Best,
    Chris
    Kinda lost my love for ubuntu, more changey than Vista or Win8
    So LMDE it is for me until there's a way to update my distro and not
    have everything disappear.

    unfortunately I'm back here again after an hour. Java games and the like (like runescape for example) have no sound

    Re: Howto Install 32 bit Firefox with Flash w/sound and Java for AMD64

    Anyone else noticing that the .deb referenced in the OP for firefox32 2.0.0.14 (http://home.comcast.net/~ubuntume/fi...8.04_amd64.deb) actually seems to install 2.0.0.13, or is it just me?

    I used that package to upgrade from 2.0.0.12, thinking I'd get x.14 and got x.13 instead. The package claims it's x.14 and that it's already installed when I double-click it, but it lies.

    I have searched my machine and found only two copies of Firefox: The 64bit x.14 build I don't use, and the 32bit x.13 that I'm trying to upgrade.

    Anyone else have this going on?

    Sometimes errors happen when creating packages, if the deb file says 2.0.0.14, it should be 2.0.0.14. To make sure of the version you have installed click Help and About Firefox. You will see the version information there.
