    The terrible trio: Mozilla, Galeon, Nautilus
    Posted on Friday, September 21 @ 17:46:16 BST

    Just wanted to point out that both Mozilla 0.9.4 and galeon 0.12 (compatible with Mozilla 0.9.4) have hit unstable. Although the Galeon packages get updated regularly against a new Mozilla, the Nautilus-mozilla package doesnt. Therefore people must forfeit HTML support in Nautilus for long periods, even though the nautilus-mozilla maintainer is the same as the mozilla maintainer (Takuo KITAME). In the future things should calm down when the API of the Mozilla Gecko engine is frozen. Until then Nautilus users should put Mozilla on hold (in fact apt will do this automagically).

    DanielS: Just made a couple of minor corrections - the nautilus-mozilla maintainer is the mozilla maintainer (Kitame), and nautilus-mozilla is a complete replacement for nautilus.

    Quoting from your message "the nautilus maintainer is slow to act." Please note that this is the very same maintainer who provides us with the mozilla packages! As well as evolution and more than sixty others.

    Anyway: I filed a bug report for the nautilus-mozilla package.

    Well, the Mozilla upgrade to 0.9.4 did break Galeon, so some of the "auto-magic" doesn't seem to be working.

    The terrible duet: Mozilla (0.9.4-1), Galeon (0.12.1-1) (Score: 0)

    I use Galeon from version 0.9 (or 0.10). On the end of August I installed galeon-cvs with mozilla-cvs (09.01 version) - it works.. sometimes hangs for minute and then goes on but works.. Newer mozilla == galeon without mozilla - So I reinstalled mozilla 0901. Few days ago I managed to get galeon-cvs (still the same 0.12) with mozilla 0.9.4 - visit DebianPlanet == galeon crash. Today I installed galeon 0.12.1-1 and Mozilla 0.9.4-3. Galeon works like before - sometimes hangs for a minute, crash on DP, on pressing some binary links..

    Isn't it enough to simply rebuild the nautilus package?

    I'm running nautilus from CVS, mozilla-0.9.4 and galeon-0.12.1 and everything is working.

    Very frustrating for me. Some Ximian libraries do not match up, until Ximian gets around to providing its version. Perhaps I should drop Ximian for straight GNOME? (and keep Moz, Galeon and Nautilus). Suggestions?

    nautilus-mozilla is _not_ a replacement for nautilus (Score: 1)

    Exercept (sp?) from the nautilus-mozilla package:

    Installed-Size: 208
    Replaces: nautilus (= 1.0.4), nautilus (

    Doesn't look like a replacement to me. The only binary in the package is /usr/bin/nautilus-mozilla-content-view, which is a nautilus component.
