« on: August 18, 2020, 03:23:28 PM »
    hi all

    i have been trying to load an up to date version of firefox into various versions of coreplus
    using firefox-get-latest
    but when i try to run it
    it reports that it cannot find a long list of dependencies
    beginning with libatomic.so

    any ideas

Hi ulfr
... beginning with libatomic.so ...
That should be in  gcc_libs.tcz.

I just ran  firefox_getLatest  a few weeks ago under TC10 x86 and it ran fine.

This is the  .dep  file it produced:
Code: [Select]
gtk3.tcz
libasound.tcz
dbus-glib.tcz
hicolor-icon-theme.tcz
cairo.tcz
gamin.tcz
libGLESv2.tcz
gdk-pixbuf2.tcz
gcc_libs.tcz

      thanks for your reply

      i am trying it in coreplus 11

      it does have gcc_libs.tcz in optional

      could it be a problem between 10 and 11 

      i will try it next in tc 10

Hi ulfr
Is  gcc_libs.tcz  listed in your  firefox.tcz.dep  file?

Hi ulfr
Then  gcc_libs  should be loaded and you should not get a  libatomic.so  not found error. If you run this:
Code: [Select]
tce_load -i gcc_libsDoes it load it or does it say it's already loaded?

        hi rich 

       im back in coreplus 11 
       and specifically loaded gcc_libs.tcz before i loaded firefox
       this got rid of the libatomic.so problem
       but other dependencies are needed

       the next is

       XPCOMGlueLoad error

       libmozgtk.so:   libgtk-3.so.0  : undefined symbol : pango_font_description_set_variations Couldn't load XPCOM

       i did try to satisfy this list before but it is so long i gave up

Hi ulfr
Try this:
Code: [Select]
for i in `cat /etc/sysconfig/tcedir/optional/firefox.tcz.dep`; do tce-load -i $i; done
You may want to copy/paste that command.

Then see if the errors go away.

In addition to what Rich just wrote I just did a search. One of the solutions, the poster had accidently installed the wrong bit version of firefox. I believe that is not supposed to happen.

However, one way of telling is to navigate in your terminal to whereever firefox-bin is.
Code: [Select]
strings firefox-bin | grep lib64
# EXPECTED result for 64 bit /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2
You should have the 32 bit if you are on coreplus so I would expect you to see no result?

so I am guessing you could confirm with
Code: [Select]
strings firefox-bin | grep ld-linux-x86

      rich
      i ran your command and it said all of the deps were already loaded
      but then i ran firefox and got the same error

      as i said firefox-get-latest works fine in tc 10.1

      aus9 

     i will try to see if it loaded a 64 bit firefox

     but the script for firefox-get-latest runs automatically without me specifiying 32 or 64 bit

     however i was able to run fredx portable firefox (from puppy) which is 32 bit  after i loaded but did not start firefox in tc 10 .1

I am sure you already know this....you can not boot and have loaded 2 firefoxs at once.

Please remove all mentions of firefox from your boot list.
manually load what ever firefox you think should work and try again Rich and my suggestions

  thank you for all the help

  yes i know i cannot boot 2 firefoxes at the same time it will tell me one is running already and must be shut down before i can run the other one 
  and i dont think that was the conflict becuase i tried firefox-get-latest first before i did anyting else   

  i will redo everythig to make sure that is not the problem

  and report back 

  see you soon
