Firefox 1.5 living next to 1.0.7


I have unpacked the 1.5 tarball in /usr/lib/firefox-1.5/ . The "firefox" command still launches the old version which is in /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.7/ . How can I change the command to launch the new version? Thank you.

Dotancohen, the link in your first post could be seen as advertising. My advice is for you to go to your UserCP (see links in sidebar) and set it as your signature.

Advertising? Because of the link?

I don't want to put it as a signature because each time I link to a different page on the site. They _may_ be promotion, but it certainly is not advertising.

You should only put relevant links in the thread body. The cellphone link has absolutely nothing at all to do with your post and so is irrelevant, potentially confusing and looks like advertising. Whether you think it is promotion or advertising doesn't matter. If it is perceived as advertising, someone will report it and we will continue having this conversation.

I believe that jeremy has discontinued the Affero/Thanks links.

No affero?

I don't have a affero account for myself, but I would
definitively would like to give the option to those
whom I help online on LQ, the oportunity to support linux.

Is there a link I could add to my signature that would
link to the LQ default affero account?

Affero.net is the place to go to sign up, you can then decide where you want your Thanks to go. It seems that we are currently the number one choice by author. So that's nice.

Anyway, we seem to be hijacking the thread a little....

Firefox 1.5 upgrade

My set up was similar and when I run 'firefox' I get:
/usr/lib/firefox-1.5/firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc+ +.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Obviously I'm missing something here and many years of Windows development aren't helping me at this moment. The file /usr/bin/firefox is a shell script and has the following:
moz_libdir=/usr/local/lib/firefox-1.0.4
MRE_HOME=/usr/local/lib/mre/mre-1.0.4

Should I change these paths to reflect my current config? The MRE_HOME file doesn't exist on my system, so I'm assuming it's referring to mozilla. Thanks for the help.

I would recommend that you start a new thread.
