galeon-1.2.6-1.i386.rpm installation?


Hello

I use Red Hat 7.3. 2 or 3 month ago Galeon Browser crashed. Now I want to install the Galeon browser.

IN KDE:

#1 Mozilla 1.1 is installed (as required)
#2 Downloaded package: galeon-1.2.6-1.i386.rpm
#3 [root@localhost mozilla]# rpm -i galeon-1.2.6-1.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
mozilla = 1.1 is needed by galeon-1.2.6-1


Why I get the error? What I did wrong?

Thanks

mozilla dependancies

I was curious as to how you got Mozilla 1.1 to install...I am having a hard time installing because i am getting a viscous circle of file dependancies...

goldenllama,

I gave up on the issue. I installed the Mozilla 1.1 package. On the browser information it says Mozilla 1.1 but when I check package on Linux it says Mozilal 1.0.1 . Weird Situation. I tried to install Mozilla again, but it gives the same error that you got, packages dependency error.

dependencies are easy enough to deal with really. as for the 1.0.1 and 1.1 issue, mozilla has slightly altered the standard locations for the mozilla libraries etc.. in the new version, from /lib/blah/mozilla to /lib/blah/mozilla-1.1, so if you install the new mozilla package, rather than actaully apgrade it it is quite probable that both will be installed, and most likely that the earlier one will remain the first port of call.

circular dependencies are generally not an issue, install all packages at teh same time and the probalem is removed.
