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) ...And I get a series of these:
/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:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
java: segfault at c rip 4a6dcf39 rsp ffd168d0 error 4Firefox 32 bit does not run at all. When I try to run it, I get this:
esd: no process killedSo, I downloaded
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!
swiftweasel32-184.108.40.206_athlon64-32bit_ubuntu_7.10-8.04_AMD64That installed no problem, however, when I run it I get this:
swiftweasel-bin: segfault at 0 rip 0 rsp ffbe4830 error 14I'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:
