Been a while since I used seamonkey, but needed it yesterday. The old
version I had installed (2.11) threw an error when I tried it, so I
grabbed 2.12.1 from mozilla.com. It throws the same error:
$ /usr/local/seamonkey/seamonkey &
$ XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/local/seamonkey/libxpcom.so:
libxul.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.
Of course libxul.so is right there in /usr/local/seamonkey, as it is in
the other expected mozilla-related places.
Reminds me of the old LD_LIBRARY_PATH issues in Solaris and others.
What's the modern way to address this?
Is there a yum-installable version of seamonkey somewhere?
