Firefox on BeagleBoard xm
12/03/2018 10:19
Has anyone got Firefox 2.0.0.20-1 to run on the Beagleboard xm? I've updated the required modules in !System.310, turned off exceptions and increased the next slot, but on double clicking nothing seems to happen although on opening !Firefox the stderr file has been written to saying Fatal signal received: Segmentation fault followed by a lot of details.

I can't see anything there that would cause it not to work. You could try deleting the Boot:Choices.Mozilla.Firefox folder. Then run it again.

You can then copy these across for use whenever you want. Note that currently the procedure will generate an unhelpful error if the HardDisc4/util file isn't present but this shouldn't affect creation of the AOn/AOff files.

However, when the ROOL wiki's up again, you could document the situation there (if you've not already done so): https://www.riscosopen.org/wiki/documentation/pages/Cortex-A8+software+compatability+list

What version of RISCOS rom have you got on the microSD card? Mines the one that was available at the start of November.

There is a post in General Forum - Error booting latest downloadable Beagle ROM from Chris Gransden on Nov 2, 2009 saying I posted this from Firefox using Risc OS on my Beagleboard. So he has it working (although it doesn't say which version of Firefox) on the original BeagleBoard but no explanation as to how and if anyone has it running on a BeagleBoard xm.

The full error message written by Firefox to the stderr file when trying to run it is as follows if anyone can point out the problem: Fatal signal received: Segmentation fault Stack backtrace: Running thread 0x117c968 ( 138ff38) pc: e7685c lr: e76e70 sp: 138ff3c __write_backtrace() ( 138ffa0) pc: e76a14 lr: e776c0 sp: 138ffa4 __unixlib_raise_signal() ( 138ffb0) pc: e775c4 lr: e96268 sp: 138ec68 __h_cback() Register dump at 0138ffb4: a1: 67107223 a2: 138ec68 a3: 1 a4: 0 v1: 67107240 v2: 67107223 v3: 67107208 v4: 67107222 v5: 671071f8 v6: 1a sl: 138e210 fp: 138eca4 ip: 138eca8 sp: 138ec68 lr: e96268 pc: e8ee20 cpsr: 20000110 00e8ee0c : .... : 00000000 : ANDEQ R0,R0,R0 00e8ee10 : .... : 00000000 : ANDEQ R0,R0,R0 00e8ee14 : .... : 00000000 : ANDEQ R0,R0,R0 00e8ee18 : .... : 00000000 : ANDEQ R0,R0,R0 00e8ee1c : .... : 00000000 : ANDEQ R0,R0,R0 00e8ee20 : .Àå : e590c000 : LDR R12,[R0,#0] 00e8ee24 : .0 ã : e3a03001 : MOV R3,#1 00e8ee28 : .. á : e1a01000 : MOV R1,R0 00e8ee2c : .4ƒá : e1833403 : ORR R3,R3,R3,LSL #8 ( 138eca4) pc: e96210 lr: e49574 sp: 138eca8 __addenv_to_os() ( 138ecc8) pc: e494e0 lr: e8d554 sp: 138eccc putenv() ( 138ece4) pc: 1409a8 lr: e8d554 sp: 138ece8 PR_SetEnv() ( 138eff0) pc: a9d0 lr: e954d8 sp: 138eff4 XRE_main() Just noticed that !Firefox looks for Tinct in !System.Modules rather than in !System.310.Modules where it is usually found. Putting a copy there still gives the same stderr error so it's not that.

Can you check that you are using the same modules in !Boot.Resources.!System.310.Modules SharedULib 1.11 (15 Oct 2007) Tinct 0.14 (25 Apr 2009) DRenderer 0.52 GPL (15 Jan 2006) GDBServer 0.01 (24 Dec 2009) Exceptions are off I've increased to 23000K and I had hidden older versions before rebooting the Beagleboard xm and trying !Netsurf.

Scroll bars don't work properly although you can use the cursor keys and Page Up/Down. Also turn off Javascript otherwise pages take ages to load.

Is there any way of checking if this is turning off exceptions? Thanks for your help.
