Thread: Firefox for Opensuse 11.2

  1. #1

    Default Firefox for Opensuse 11.2

    Hello,

    I have Firefox 3.6.23 installed but want to upgrade to a newer version (FireFTP won't install on this version). I know suse 11.2 (which is what i'm running) is dead but is it possible to install a newer version of FF? I have the mozilla repo added: Index of /repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.2 (I also added the Evergreen repo) but when I look at available applications or upgrades i'm not seeing a new version of Firefox. Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Thank you for this. I'm using Gnome but i'm pretty sure i'm doing the same stuff - I choose the repos view, select the mozilla repo, look down the list of available packages, but I don't see 'MozillaFirefox' I see some of the others (MozillaFirefox-branding-upstream, M..F..-buildsymbols etc) but not just FF. Sorry! Any ideas?

    Are you sure? When looking into the repo the rpm is there
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...1-2.1.i586.rpm
    same of course also for x86_64.
    So you should see it.
    Can you post the output from
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    between code tags?

    Follow of course what caf4926 says, the gtk interface for yast in 11.2 was
    not feature complete compared to the qt interface.
    If you still have problems you can also do a zypper dup for the mozilla
    repository only with
    Code:
    sudo zypper dup -r 5
    which should bring you to the newest FF 7 (it will maybe ask you for some
    packages if vendor changes are ok for you and you should agree to that).

    _wait_!

    how is /root/Desktop being used for "local desktop installs"?

    sounds very wrong to me..
