  1. Firefox 3.* on Slackware 12.0

    Anybody know if there are any Firefox 3.0 packages out there for
    Slackware 12.0? I notice that the slacky.eu guys have s Firefox 3.0.1
    package for Slackware 12.1, but not for Slackware 12.0. I don't think it
    is a good idea to install a 12.1 package on a 12.0 box, right?

    Good for you. I asked about 12.0, not 12.1 though.

    I'm running FF-3.0.1 taken from -current on Slack-12.0.
    If you check the build script you find that it is not
    compiled but `repackaged' from the tarball provided by
    the Mozilla Foundation.

    Cheers,
    Mikhail

    You should be able to install any version of firefox, even from
    previous slackware releases. Mozilla packages on slackware are just a
    repackaging of yhe original packages from mozilla site.

    Firefox 3.x is incompatible with slackware 11.0 because of the
    incompatible libraries, but you can install most old packages on newer
    releases.

    Use the package from slackware-current. All it is is a repackage
    of the binary that Mozilla puts out, nothing more.

    It'll work on 12.0.
