Yesterday I bought a new PC. I've carefully chosen the parts, looking for compatibility. But, after I installed 11.04, things are really not working as expected.
My wireless card (RTL8185) is a pain to connect. I have to take the interface down & up everytime my PC boots. (but I'll work on that later).
And, the worst of all, Firefox crashes on almost every page load. I tried to debug it, and it says something related to libfontconfig.so.1 I've spend the last 12 hours googling around with no solutions.
Downloading things from terminal (ie updates) works just fine.
Could some drivers (nvidia, or wifi) be messing with Firefox, causing it to crash? How can I fix this? I swear I already googled!
When I run it with GDB:
Starting program: /usr/lib/firefox-5.0/firefox-bin [Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled] ... ... Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fauld. 0xb6549942 in ?? from /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libfontconfig.so.1
I hope anyone can help me here!
UPDATE-1 Disabling Pango for Firefox with this line on .bashrc didn't work either.
UPDATE-2 After trying a lot of things, I've connected a LAN cable to my box and now everything works flawlessly. Too bad my router is far away from my desk. At least, now I know the problem is not Firefox, but my WiFi drivers. I'll post another question regarding my Wireless card Realtek RTL8185.
