Trying to run a version of Firefox (firefox-17.0.11esr) from its
unpack dir. It starts and hangs.
readlink("/etc/malloc.conf", 0xbfff9650, 4096) = -1 ENOENT
(No such file or directory)
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, NULL, [RTMIN], 8) = 0
If I create an empty /etc/malloc.conf, the first line above is
readlink("/etc/malloc.conf", 0xbfff9650, 4096) = -1 EINVAL
I don't have an /etc/malloc.conf on any system (220.127.116.11 and 3.10.17
kernels). A quick google suggests that this is a feature of FreeBSD or
Anybody have any clues? I have no idea what's happening here.
