I have installed Mozilla 1.4 on Sun solaris 8.0. When I am trying to launch Mozialla , I am getting an error like as follows:
ld.so.1:/usr/sfw/bin/./../../sfw/lib/mozilla/mozilla-bin: fatal: relocation error: file/usr/local/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: symbol bind-textdomain-codeset referenced symbol not found.

I have set my LD_LIBRARY_PATH also

MY LD_LIBRARY_PATH is like this:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH /usr/sfw/lib:/usr/lib:.:/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.0.100/immodules:/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.0.100/loaders

If anybody can help me to fix this prob. Its very urgent. Tks in advance

Stuff in /usr/sfw usually comes from the Bonus Software disk that ships with Solaris.

Stuff in /usr/local is most likely things that you have compiled yourself, or got from a third party such as www.sunfreeware.com

It looks as if your version of Mozilla (in /usr/sfw) doesn't exactly match the GTK libraries (in /usr/local) (GTK libraries provide the graphical toolkit that Mozilla uses to display itself). You can probably resolve this by installing the version of the GTK libraries that come on the Bonus Software disk.

Why don't you just download mozilla + glib + gtk binary packages from:
http://sunfreeware.com/

Please read the README file before doing installation, and please remember to make:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH point to /usr/local/lib as well.

It clearly explains that, you are missing /usr/lib in your path
all you need to do is

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH= $LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/lib

also  check your ld.so.1 file's size , hope its not corrupted.

otherwise you need to replce the library, you can get from cd or transfer from other machine in  binary mode

Just ad your LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib:/usr/local/ssl/lib/
