Today, I've run into an error after updating my mozilla and firefox packages
using the APT system. Investigating the situation, I found a solution which I
like to share.

First I updated to MozillaFirefox-1.0-4.3

apt install MozillaFirefox - installed version 1.0-4.3

When calling the app:

/usr/bin/firefox

it resulted in the error message

/mozilla-bin: error while loading shared
libraries: /opt/gnome/lib/libpangoft2-1.0.so.0: undefined symbol:
g_type_class_add_private

Googling for the error message only reveiled a discussion on this board from
September last year, suggesting to reload the original version from the CD.

My personal solution:

Looking into the directory /opt/gnome/lib reveils two broken symbolic links:

libglib-2.0.so -> libglib-2.0.so.0.400.6,
libgmodule-2.0.so -> libgmodule-2.0.so.0.400.6

After fixing these links, mozilla & firefox are working fine.

These are my changes (as root user):

cd /opt/gnome/lib
rm libglib-2.0.so && ln -s libglib-2.0.so.0.400.7 libglib-2.0.so
rm libgmodule-2.0.so && ln -s libgmodule-2.0.so.0.400.7 libgmodule-2.0.so

Regards,

Rainer
