Description mgoe 2009-08-07 10:17:16 UTC
On "older" linux distros (e.g. Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.3) trying to use the new embedded web browser 
crashes the JVM with the following error message:

.../bin/java: symbol lookup error: /usr/local/java/netbeans-6.8-m1/extra/modules/lib/native/linux/xulrunner/ 
undefined symbol: g_once_init_enter_impl

I think the problem is that the is linked against a quite new glibc. Older glibc versions do not provide the 
symbol g_once_init_enter_impl. While searching for a workaround I found the following bugreport which might help you 
to resolve the issue:

Best regards,

PS: Sorry for using the component extbrowser for this bug, but I could not find a suitable component.
