i have fedora3
i downloaded firefox as "firefox-1.0.1.installer.tar.gz"
i then typed:

tar xzf firefox-1.0.1.installer.tar.gz
cd firefox-installer/

insert your redhat cd, then under 'system tools' on the programs list you should see something like 'install software' which will run a program similar to the wizard you used to choose what packages to install when you first installed redhat. select all of the development packages and click install.

I did a full Fedora Core 3 installation and firefox was in there. Why don't you check your CD's there sould be firefox in rpm format.

- I already have installed firefox from the Fedora3 CD but it is "Firefox/0.10.1" and I wanted to install the newest version.
- This is also an exercise in how to (1) download a piece of software and (2) install it, (3) know where it is, (4) deinstall it.

- is there a way to get an .RPM of Firefox so this is all automatic?

Thanks.

I put in my fedora 3 DVD and choose to install "all development packages" and it started to install.
Unfortunately after awhile it said, "put in Fedora CD 2" but I got this DVD from a magazine and there is just one, so I had to cancel the installation of the development tools.

Is there any way to ONLY install the "libstdc++.so.5" that it needs?
What is that? The standard gcc thing that I keep seeing mentioned?

Thanks.

Talking

Goto this website:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/2/simple/2

do a search for libstdc++.so.5 and download the file for fedora core and your processor i.e either i386 or x86_64.

You can download the rpm file and install it. Make sure you do not have any dependency errors. If you have any dependency errors search for the files again in the above website.

I hope this works out

the rpm.pbone.net site is not coming up (very slow, partial load)
Is there a similar site to get RPMs?

Thanks.
