Thread: RPM for Firefox 3.0.X?

  1. RPM for Firefox 3.0.X?

    Where can I find an RPM to install firefox 3 on 2008.0? I had installed
    it by hand, but every time I do a system update and forget to tell it
    *not* to update firefox, it reverts back to 2.0.0.X. :-(

    If I had the RPM, at least it would be easy to fix the damage.

    Have you tried placing an entry in /etc/urpmi/skip.list. Example:

    /^mozilla-firefox/
    # ********** end skip.list *************

    Or just place your commands in a file, example, install_firefox,
    chmod +x install_firefox. Then you can do a

    ../install_firefox

    I haven't found an rpm. Before you install by hand, remove the installed
    version using urpme. That way, it won't "get updated" by urpmi.

    And you need to install libnss3 as well, from the 2009.0-repos
