Hi:

You said that you extracted all the files-

Do you mean that you downloaded a tar.bz extracted it and your now looking at a list of files in the konsole?

If so; the tar.bz should of came with a INSTALL file or a README file that will tell you how to install it.

Generally with this type of file you would run:
Code:
./configure
make
make install
If you have errors or warnings along the way you will have to satisfy the packages that have not been installed before make can run.-

How about READING THE FRACKING INSTRUCTIONS!!!!!!!!

seamonkey is NOT a source redistribution you CAN NOT!!!! run"configure", make" on it
it is a PREBUILT binary package

so why not just RTFM!!!

I'm running Slackware and it came with Sea Monkey so I didn't have to install it-

Sorry I forgot; until John said it's a prebuilt binary pkg-
The only thing you should have to run now that you have extracted it is:

./seamonkey

Quote:
Create a directory named "seamonkey2" (mkdir seamonkey2) and change to that directory (cd seamonkey2).
Click the link on the site you're downloading SeaMonkey from to download the package (seamonkey-2.*.tar.bz2) file into the seamonkey2 directory.
Decompress the file with the following command:

tar jxvf seamonkey-2.*.tar.bz2
This creates a "seamonkey" directory under your seamonkey2 directory.
Change to the seamonkey directory (cd seamonkey).
Run SeaMonkey with the following command:

./seamonkey
If Sea Monkey is not in your Menu: reboot-
