    Mozilla doesnt start

    Yeah, start it from a terminal so we can get an error message.

    Ok more info - in the terminal nothing happens, if i type mozilla it just hangs.

    I did an updatedb then locate mozilla
    There was a /usr/bin/mozilla

    i used pkgtool to remove the mozilla pkg then installed it again off the CD

    Same thing happens?

    How long have you left it running before you decided to close it out? It takes Mozilla a little while to start-up. Perhaps an ldconfig might help. Have you tried to run it as root to see if it's a user problem?

    It's Ldconfig written as this: ldconfig if you were to type it into the terminal.

    Straight from the man page:

    ldconfig is used to prepare a set of ``hints'' for use by the a.out run-time linker ld.so to facilitate quick lookup of shared libraries avail-able in multiple directories. ldconfig is only available on systems that use the ``a.out'' format for executables and libraries - on ELF systems, all the work is done by ld.elf_so.

    By default, it scans a set of built-in system directories, directories listed in /etc/ld.so.conf, and any directories specified on the command line (in the given order) looking for shared libraries and stores the re-sults in the file /var/run/ld.so.hints to forestall the overhead that would otherwise result from the directory search operations ld.so would have to perform to load required shared libraries. The shared libraries so found will be automatically available for loading if needed by the program being prepared for execution. This obviates the need for storing search paths within the executable.

    The LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable can be used to override the use of directories (or the order thereof) from the cache or to specify addi-tional directories where shared libraries might be found. LD_LIBRARY_PATH is a `:' separated list of directory paths that are searched by ld.so when it needs to load a shared library. It can be viewed as the run-time equivalent of the -L switch of ld.
