browser error message
« on: January 17, 2010, 05:03:54 pm »
Whenever I try to launch either google chrome or swiftfox I get an error message. This error message of course differs slightly between the two applications but it is essentially the same:

for google-chrome:
/usr/bin/google-chrome: symbol lookup error: /usr/bin/google-chrome: undefined symbol: g_once_init_enter_impl

for swiftfox:
/opt/swiftfox/swiftfox-bin: symbol lookup error: /opt/swiftfox/ undefined symbol: g_once_init_enter_impl

Can anyone shed some light on this?
The following sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.

Looks like this is an issue with the glib dependencies. We are building on a newer version of glib which has g_once_init_enter_impl. This function doesn't exist on older versions of glib
