when i do a search for mozilla, or thunderbird all i find are things for firefox. i would really like to have thunderbird installed via YaST instead of pulling down an rpm to be stuck in dependancy hell.
this is my first attempt at SuSe so please dont beat me to hard over the head, im much more used to apt-get install mozilla-firefox or thunderbird and be done with it
Distribution: Any nix or other OS I can get my hands on!
Where FF and TB are concerned and because they are updated so often; I simply created a folder in my home page and installed FF, SB, and TB into it and edit kmenu. getting the latest versions are as simple as extracting the instilation folders and running the installers. A new nix install requires a simple repasting of this folder into the home directory.
In the "Server Name" text box I put suse.cs.utah.edu and in the "Directory on Server" text box I put suse/i386/current.
thank you, that was the type of info i was missing. installed the source by your directions and poof not only was i able to get thunderbird, but i am also able to grab the libicu packages i need to get quasar running, i hope these are the packages i need.
[edit to add] yup that worked just great. quasar installed without giving me any errors this time.
