I am going back to Mandriva 2008.0* but I want to install Firefox 3 (a recent version, not a release candidate). If possible I'd like to do it in an automated way, through the "Software Management" tool, or downloading an RPM file.
But the "Software Management" tool doesn't offer FF3 - is there a Firefox repository that I could add to let me do this?
Or, is there an RPM file for FF3? I couldn't find one with Google.
And if those options fail... I saw an article about Setting Up Synaptic And Apt-Get On Mandriva 2007
- I wondered if that would be a good way to do it.
I'm only semi-geeky, have been having lots of hassle, and need to be productive again - so I'm wary of playing with commands that i don't understand.
My plan is to run Firefox 3, and not run Firefox 2 at all.
I assume the settings from my current setup will carry over automatically (the home partition will be unchanged).
*due to wifi problems
(my wireless card doesn't work well with the latest kernels which use Intel's updated and much buggier driver) and clashes with Skype. I'm going back to an OS I know and can use, with relatively minor bugs that I can usually avoid.
