help please!



You have to compile the one from the website yourself.

OR, you can take the easy route and do the following:

There’s more information in the thread if you need it: FireFox 3.5 for openSuse - openSUSE Forums


Forget the file you downloaded. Add the repo quoted.
Then run Updates.

I just add the

/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.1/ respositorie into yast software repositories, click on update but nothing happens.

I don’t know what i’m doing wrong.

What do I have to check to see if I do the corect steps ?



If you added the repository to software repositories then the command

sudo zypper up MozillaFirefox

will update Firefox to the latest version in the repository.
Good luck.

Thanks !! that sudo… sentence works!

Of course! :smiley: That was the key!

I added repo and used sudo zypper up MozillaFirefox, but get following result:
linux-h9uz:~ # sudo zypper up MozillaFirefox
Loading repository data…
Reading installed packages…
No update candidate for ‘MozillaFirefox’.
Resolving package dependencies…
Nothing to do.

Any ideas?

zypper lr -d

Read up on zypper usage here. Zypper/Usage/11.1 - openSUSE

I bet the output of the above
zypper lr -d

shows you don’t have the Mozilla repo enabled

It’s either not added, not enabled, or the priorities are not set right.
