Cannot install firefox 0.10.1


Hello all,
I have been using firefox .8 until one day the home page said I should install the latest version 0.10.1. Tryed to download & install..
It was missing libgtk-x11.2.0.0.so I found somewhere this file "gtk2.2.1.4-i386.rpm" which contains libgtk-x11.2.0.so, but it needed this and it needed that. Help!!
I have an old pentium 2 with redhat 7.2 the kernel version is 2.4.7-10


thanks in advance
nigelc

Did you get your install file from here?

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.o...leases/0.10.1/

Looks like they only have the version built with GTK2, which I suspect you do not have with Red Hat 7.2. You either have to find the version compiled with GTK1.2 or, less feasibly, upgrade your distro.

(They did have the GTK1.2 version for 0.8. They seem to have discontinued it with 0.9.)
