1) # rpm -Uvh firefox-3.0.11-4.el4.src.rpm
2) cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/
Have a look in the file firefox.spec to know
the 'BuildRequires' .

3) # rpmbuild -bb firefox.spec
.. and when build is finished, find the package
in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/
If you have any problems, please provide a link
to where you found firefox-3.0.11-4.el4.src.rpm.
.....
.....
But in fact no reason to build it : It already
was build some days ago :

> >
http://riksun.riken.go.jp/pub/pub/Li...4.el4.i386.rpm
> firefox-3.0.11-4.el4.i386.rpm
And the dependencies are the same as 3.0.10

→ → → so I could install it in 2 seconds.
.....
Good luck !
