This testing report is about PCBSD 1.5rc3

A PCBSD 1.5rc3 Repair/update over PCBSD 1.5rc2 went fine, but seemed to crash.

Fresh install of 1.5rc3 works fine.  No problems with the install
routine or automatic reboot.

The only problem I had was with Firefox:

Firefox will not start:

1.  Would not start as installed from Disk 2 during fresh install:

Captured from Stdout:

ld-elf.so.1: assert failed: /usr/src/libexec/rtld-elf/i386/reloc.c:290
Abort trap

2.  Downloaded FF PBI & Installed it.
Although it loaded upon completion, it crashed within seconds.
Restarted FF but it kept crashing with this error message:

Captured From Stdout:  Illegal instruction
Captured from Stderr:  (firefox-bin:63528): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not
supported by C library. Using the fallback 'C' locale.

3. Tried to start FF from terminal & same failure code:

%whereis firefox
firefox: /usr/local/bin/firefox /usr/ports/www/firefox
%cd /usr/local/bin
%ls firefox*
Illegal instruction

4.  Removed FF PBI and attempted to install from ports without any success:

=> Attempting to fetch from
===>  Vulnerability check disabled, database not found
=> MD5 Checksum mismatch for firefox-
=> SHA256 Checksum mismatch for firefox-
===>  Giving up on fetching files: firefox-
Make sure the Makefile and distinfo file (/usr/ports/www/firefox/distinfo)
are up to date.  If you are absolutely sure you want to override this
check, type "make NO_CHECKSUM=yes [other args]".
