Can't get the workaround using Arch64...
I compiled the provided libpng and copied the files into firestorm/lib...still crashes
I tried LD_PRELOAD, no luck but maybe I'm doing this wrong

I had the upload problem too and solved it getting and compiling the libpng version of the Secondlife-Bin package and now seems to work fine.
I'm using Archlinux 32bit with a custom built desktop environment: Openbox as windows manager, fbpanel as system panel and tray, pcmanfm as file manager + everything else needed for making it friendly usable

Secondlife-bin package had this same problem, but the maintainer fixed it by making the PKGBUILD to compile a non-patched version of libpng and include it in the lib directory of the viewer. Do you think, this same logic can be copied from Secondlife to Firestorm package?

I built the firestorm viewer from source (, the bug is still present, to the date of this post.

From what I have been able to figure out, the problem (seems to me), to be GTK. Phoenix Viewer works as usual, and I'm able to upload textures as normal, but when I press the 'cancel' button, it crashe's.

I think Timosa filed a bug on the firestorm jira (, I replied with some links to official jira bug reports to what seems to be the same problem.

Yes, that bug affects Phoenix too. I don't believe it's able to be repaired in the binary packages. I may look into creating a plain "firestorm" that builds from source (though this takes a few hours even on good machines..) to see if it can resolve the issue.

Also to another person: Please do not flag packages as out-of-date when they really aren't :)

Crashes on 64-bit environment when trying upload texture.

As far as I can tell gnome-vfs is not a requirement for i386 or x86_64 (lib32-gnome-vfs.)
