How to upgrade firefox to 9.0.1

   The installed version of firefox is 3.6.22 while mozilla has released
9.0.1. Can I upgrade using the distribution SlackBuild script (currently
13.1/32-bit on this box)?

Thanks,

Rich

Sorry, it's in Indonesian, but you will understand by just looking at
the code snippet

Willy,

   Unfortunately, the snippets there don't match what's in the 13.1/32-bit
SlackBuild script. There's a problem with the locations of the mimeType file
that I cannot resolve. Sigh.

Thanks,

You can install directly this binary from the salix-13.37 repo:
http://download.salixos.org/i486/13.37/salix/xap/mozilla-firefox-9.0.1-i686-1gv.txz

deps: http://download.salixos.org/i486/13.37/salix/xap/mozilla-firefox-9.0.1-i686-1gv.dep

Or, if you prefer, you can write your slackbuild based on the SLKBUILD:
http://download.salixos.org/i486/13.37/source/xap/mozilla-firefox/

   I just downloaded the tarball, un-tarred it, and made a soft link from the
firefox executable to /usr/bin/firefox. That did the trick.

Many thanks,

Hi,

I don't see any reason why you shouldn't use the SlackBuild or even the binary package from 13.37 or current .
As far as I know, there is no change in the structure of the package. (except the version of course)

Jens,

   The last time I looked they both had earlier versions. Just now I checked
and -13.37 has firefox-4.0 while -current has firefox-8.0.1. Folks who've
keep up on the firefox version changes told me that _major_ improvements
appeared in 9.x. So I'm now running 9.0.1 which is ahead of the official
Slackware versions.

Thanks for the thoughts,

Rich

13.37 has firefox-4.0 in xap/, however it has firefox-8.0.1 in
patches/packages.

Rich,
9.0.b3 is in testing , but I don't know what the difference to 9.0.1 may be .
If that one fits , it's here :
