Sorry, but this backport doesn't work in Sarge

Hello.

I installed your iceweasel 2.0 backport in my Sarge machine (i386), and it did install flawlessly.

Inst iceweasel (2.0.0.2+dfsg-3~dh.0 hype:hype.sourceforge.jp)

However, when I try to run "firefox" (or "iceweasel"), I get this error:

$ firefox
/usr/lib/iceweasel/firefox-bin: relocation error: /usr/lib/iceweasel/firefox-bin: undefined symbol: g_intern_static_string

I searched Google, and it seems the backport is calling some feature only availabe in Glib 2.10, whereas Debian 3.1 Sarge comes with "libglib2.0-0 version 2.6.4-1".

I am interested in the iceweasel 2.0 backport to Sarge. Can this problem be solved someway?

Thank you for your work and for reading this.

you can install glib 2.10 from backports.org.

sorry, you need to excute these commands.

  1. add apt-line for backports.org, because almost all deb packages on hype.sourceforge.jp depends on backports.org
    vi /etc/apt/sources.list
    deb http://www.backports.org/debian/ sarge-backports main non-free contrib
  2. install libglib2.0-0 (2.10.2-0bpo1)
    apt-get -t sarge-backports install libglib2.0-0
