Firefox/Shiretoko 3.5.1 Build


(updated to 3.5.2...)

Built in Debian GNU/Linux amd64 Lenny.
I'm pretty new to Debian, I moved from Linux Mint a few weeks ago.
This is one of my first successful builds, I was looking for a firefox 3.5.1 AMD64 build but I just made it myself.
Feel free to post any problems...

I made it with checkinstall, it might or might not work on other systems.
To run it, just type firefox on a command line, I could not include an icon at that moment.
I made a shell script to create it automatically, run as root.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

printf "[Desktop Entry]\nEncoding=UTF-8\nName=Shiretoko Web Browser\nComment=Bro
wse the World Wide Web\nGenericName=Web Browser\nExec=firefox\nTerminal=false\nX
-MultipleArgs=false\nType=Application\nIcon=/usr/local/lib/firefox-3.5.2/icons/m
ozicon128.png\nCategories=Network;WebBrowser;\nMimeType=text/html;text/xml;appli
cation/xhtml+xml;application/xml;application/vnd.mozilla.xul+xml;application/rss
+xml;application/rdf+xml;image/gif;image/jpeg;image/png;\nStartupWMClass=Firefox
-bin\nStartupNotify=true\n" > /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop
update-menus

firefox_3.5.2-3_amd64.deb

What does your version give that the one in http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.o.../latest-trunk/ doesn't? There is a 64bit tarball available there (currently at v3.6a1) and I notice that you haven't provided a .deb file for Firefox.

I'm going to try checkinstall, I've tried making them by hand but it's a damn long process...
