hello list,

i installed mozilla 1.2 (seemingly the stable version, very recent date)
following the hint written by Tushar Teredesai. mozilla itself seems to be
working all right. but i also installed some plugins, and they don't work
well. or at all, i should say. 

i installed acrobat, flash and realplayer in /opt/mozilla-plugins. as soon
as i start mozilla i get this message in the terminal:

LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library 
/opt/mozilla-plugins/ [/opt/mozilla-plugins/ undefined
symbol: __pure_virtual]

about:plugins shows this:

Shockwave Flash

    File name:
    Shockwave Flash 5.0 r51

MIME Type                     - Description         - Suffixes - Enabled
application/x-shockwave-flash - Shockwave Flash     - swf      - Yes
application/futuresplash      - FutureSplash Player - spl      - Yes

    File name:

MIME Type       - Description              - Suffixes - Enabled
application/pdf - Portable Document Format - pdf      - Yes


note that realplayer doesn't show. the others do show, but if i try to open
a .swf file, mozilla crashes and closes with this message:

/usr/lib/mozilla-1.2/mozilla-bin: relocation error:
/opt/mozilla-plugins/ undefined symbol: __builtin_vec_new

if i try to open a pdf file the program just hangs while trying to open

any help greatly appreciated.
