M9 Is Out!

Thursday August 26th, 1999

John Thacker has the news!

"M9 is out! Get it here."

Versions for Win32, Mac, and Linux are available.

If you've already been there and done that, be sure to check out the nightly M10 builds. I think I read that they were merging the M9 branch in today.

Yes, they are doing a carpool.

The M9 Linux build is against glibc2.1. If your distro doesn't have it yet (ie: Debian Slink, which I have) then don't bother.

So, would it be possible for people to just download glibc2.1, and put it in /usr/local/lib, and it will work, like you do with gtk1.0 and gimp?

[I tried posting this from a linux build from today, but I guess it didn't go through]

#6 Ditto That with 98!

Strange did work.. I think Wallet is blocking it. Oh well. I'll check with M10 build later and file bug.

I don't think so... The problem is with the dynamic loader, ie /lib/ld-linux.so.2. If you don't replace that, you're screwed for binaries. You can specify a different one if you build from source, though... I think the you have to tell gcc "-Wl,--dynamic-linker,/usr/local/lib/ld-linux.so.2, but check your friendly local manpage to be sure. SNF .

M9 Merge is complete.

#7 M10 Build < Beware >

by Anon

Thursday August 26th, 1999 10:38 PM

Last 3 M10 build d/l it black out my Win98. Sometime it shut down sometime it trun off my ATX.

I'm sure the problem will be work out very soon. but don't do anything important when you try to use Mozilla m10 nightly builds.

I'm using M9 right now.. pretty stable. so far.

How does one get proxies working with M9? Or am I asking something incredibly stupid?

It's not a stupid question. But no, proxyies don't work yet.

#13 Full Circle AWOL

by Anon

Friday August 27th, 1999 7:45 AM

Well, I'm experiencing a few more crashes than M8 (MacOS 8.6, G3/266), _but_ I notice full circle is totally absent this go around. Anyone know why?? Because of Necko (for both reasons)??

#18 Full Circle AWOL

by Anon

build system reorg caused a delay in getting fullcircle enable builds finished.

They should be on the ftp site tonight....

thanks chofmann

M9 with Fullcircle is now up on the FTP for PCs, downloading it now, whoohoo!

#15 Mac version can't show mozillazine?

by Anon

Friday August 27th, 1999 11:42 AM

Is it just me or is anyone else with the Mac version not able to read mozillazine? When mozillazine.org comes up, I get the background, I get the banner ad, but that's it. Evertyhing below the banner isn't there.

Nothing on bugzilla about this that I could find, but considering mozilla is the default page you'd think it's so obvious someone would have added it by now.

Maybe I'm crazy.

#16 Mac version can't show mozillazine?

by gerbilpower

Friday August 27th, 1999 2:30 PM

I used to get that quite often with Milestone 8 and I use a PC, but my computer is naturally buggy. So far I haven't had that problem with Milestone 9 (HORRAY!) and it isn't crashing on me as much :)

This is my first time posting here so hope this works out.

#20 Linux: libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2

by Anon

what is this? I don't have it, even though I have glibc2.1 installed. I have libstc++ 2.9.0 installed. Surprisingly symlinking to it dowsn't help.

#21 BeOS Version

by Anon

Sunday August 29th, 1999 3:31 PM

Any one found a BeOS binary lying around?

#22 I want BeOS!

Hmmm... any news on a BeOS version? I'm really interested.
