debian users and firefox how much longer to wait???
before apt-get has the newer 1.0.4 to fix the security issues with 1.0.3...

i have been running apt-get update followed by apt-get install mozilla-firefox since 1.0.4 was released and i still keep getting the following:::


p4ssmahome:~# apt-get install mozilla-firefox
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
mozilla-firefox is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 18 not upgraded.

so what gives. FF is still telling me it is vs 1.0.3-2

this is my sources.list


#deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main

##### main Debian source
deb testing/updates main contrib

##### Official US Debian archive
deb testing main

##### k3b from
deb sarge main

##### Official mplayer and deverip
#deb unstable mythty
deb testing main

##### Official debian NON-US
deb stable/non-US main contrib non-free
deb testing/non-US main contrib non-free

##### Azureus from
deb ./
deb-src ./

I doubt it, but debian stuff isn't always updated that fast. I'm still waiting for xorg.

i know deb is slow, but come on this is a semi major security issue no?

Might be in testing or unstable. I have had 1.0.4 since the day after Mozilla released there version. Since that time there was even an update.

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050517 Firefox/1.0.4 (Debian package 1.0.4-2)

what is your resources.list so i can add what i am missing to mine to get it.

craigevil 05-19-2005 04:35 PM

From what I can tell Firefox 1.0.4 is only in unstable.

# Unstable
deb unstable main contrib non-free
deb unstable/non-US main contrib non-free

# Sources
deb-src unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src unstable/non-US main contrib

# Testing
deb testing main contrib non-free
deb testing/non-US main contrib non-free

# Sources

deb-src testing/non-US main contrib non-free

It's not in Sarge. I think everything has to be in Sid for at least 2 weeks before it gets moved to testing. Doesn't make any sense with FF, though.

Lleb_KCir 05-19-2005 09:39 PM

thanks craigevil ill see what i can add to get the most current vs of FF.

Emerson i agree with something that is already stable there is no reason to move it through the standard sid, sarge, woody steps.

Lleb_KCir 05-20-2005 07:20 PM

well sadly that did not work, but i found a solution that did.

by changing from testing to unstable i was able to grab FF 1.0.4-2 this afternoon. i then changed sources back to testing.
