Thread: Firefox update

  1. #1

    Default Firefox update

    Greetings. New to Suse. Have been driving Zorin, where all updates can happen at once. Have been trying to update Firefox (3.5.10) to new ver and Yast doesn't seem to be aware of it.

    What am I missing here? Do I need to compile?

    My Zorin package(Ubuntu variant) sees each Firefox and everything else update and installs or gives me option...what do i need to do in Suse to get up to ver 3.6.8, and why isn't Yast aware?

    Any suggestions appreciated!

    Hmmm...my output certainly looks different than you example

    Did cut-n-paste of your zypper lr -d

    does my output show you what you need?

    If you install software outside of Yast/zypper/rpm then Yast/zypper/rpm knows nothing about it.

    Thank you so much ...this tid of info will make my start info Suse easier.

    Am I familiar with the dangers of "other" repositories, but again, appreciate your caution.

    Have you driven Zorin btw?
