Firebird install question


I've installed Firebird and it works fine; however, I left Mozilla 1.3 installed. Now, I can run Firebird from xterm by typing mozilla. I used to be able to run Mozilla 1.3 by typing mozilla. What file is pointing the name mozilla(which used to belong to Mozilla 1.3) to Firebird now? I just can't find this executable. The Firebird executable in /usr/lib/MozillaFirebird is MozillaFirebird, not mozilla. Yet I can't figure out how/why mozilla is launching MozillaFirebird.

You can type which mozilla and that will tell you (probably /usr/local/mozilla)

I found that I had to usr (for example) /usr/local/MozillaFirebird... OR you could set an alias in /home/<<YNH>>/.bash_profile

Hope this helps

I can't believe I forgot about that command.

snocked@slackware/usr/bin$ which mozilla
/usr/bin/mozilla

snocked@slackware~$ ls -l /usr/bin/mozilla
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root bin 5355 Mar 13 2003 /usr/bin/mozilla

It's not that big of a deal. I just wondered why /usr/bin/mozilla now brings up MozillaFirebird instead of Mozilla 1.3 like it used to. So the Firebird installation overwrote my previous /usr/bin/mozilla to run MozillaFirebird?

Hmmmm no that seems strange, My one never did that as it was just a straight copy of a directory....

How did you install Firebird?

yeah I agree with AMMullin

All I did was extract to my directory of choice and made an exec symlink to MozillaFirebird in the firebird directory to /usr/bin/firebird and therefore just used firebird as my browser cmd

probably other ways to do it but I have no problem

tar -zxvf MozillaFirebird-0.6.1-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz in /usr/lib
