Description Elie De Brauwer 2004-08-14 01:20:46 UTC

This is a bug i found on both Debian unstable and my Gentoo ~amd64 box. Unfortunately, Debian has resolved the issue while I can't find any pointer that 
Gentoo is aware of the problem. I've provided the link to the debian bug report.

But mainly is comes to this:
* right mousebutton contextmenu isn't working anymore
* open link in new tab (with middle mouse) isn't working anymore

Probably some other package than the galeon package is causing this since
root@psychotic /home/helios # genlop galeon
 * net-www/galeon

     Sat May 29 17:45:49 2004 >>> net-www/galeon-1.3.14a
     Sun May 30 14:27:12 2004 >>> net-www/galeon-1.3.14a
     Tue Jun  1 06:15:51 2004 >>> net-www/galeon-1.3.15
     Tue Jun 22 17:02:53 2004 >>> net-www/galeon-1.3.15-r1
     Mon Jul  5 21:14:22 2004 >>> net-www/galeon-1.3.16

Perhaps mozilla ?
root@psychotic /home/helios # genlop mozilla
 * net-www/mozilla

     Sat May 29 11:48:59 2004 >>> net-www/mozilla-1.6-r1
     Sat May 29 18:29:13 2004 >>> net-www/mozilla-1.6-r1
     Tue Jun 22 16:41:56 2004 >>> net-www/mozilla-1.7
     Mon Jul 26 21:03:14 2004 >>> net-www/mozilla-1.7-r1
     Thu Aug 12 13:00:49 2004 >>> net-www/mozilla-1.7.2

I've noticed it since yesterday so it could be right ...

Comment 1 Elie De Brauwer 2004-08-14 01:30:41 UTC
I tried the solution covered in the Debian bugreport, I unmerged and remerged galeon. But unfortunately this did not resolve the issue for me.
Comment 2 Elie De Brauwer 2004-08-14 01:44:00 UTC
Correction, the unmerge; merge  solution WORKS, I just forgot to kill a running galeon-bin. Sorry for any confusion. So anyone experiencing these symptoms simply unmerge galeon and remerge it.
Comment 3 Spider (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-14 05:35:47 UTC
Well, this is a cantfix issue, same will happen for epiphany.

Basically, mozilla was once more a bit ABI incompatible in between releases, forcing a rebuild of all GRE using packages.
Comment 4 Elie De Brauwer 2004-08-14 08:58:56 UTC
True, but if one knows issues can exist between certain packages why not  either
display a warning message at the end or automatically recompile the potentially broken packages ?

Merge/unmerge is a little detail once you know it.  But I think more people will end up with a broken galeon than with a working one.

(just my opinion)
