What distro / version are you using?

If it's a packaged distro (RPMs, DEBs, etc), you can remove the package.

There might even be an updated package you can install. If not, then you can always use the tarball from Mozilla. Download the "mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-1.7-installer.tar.gz". Use "tar -xzf mozilla-blah-blah-blah" to uncompress/untar it. That will create a "mozilla-installer" directory. cd into the new directory and run the "./mozilla-install" file in there.

I am not sure of the distribution

I have Red HAt 9.0. Mozilla 1.2.1 came with it. I am not sure of the distribution.

It won't work without glibc 2.3.2. If you don't have it, you'll have to get it and compile it first. I am not sure if this will mess up something else. Also, apparently it is a challenge to compile.

The best (most recent) I could do without this library (using RH 8.0)was Mozilla 1.6.

Redhat 9 IS the distro. As for what to do, i really recommend this website www.freshrpms.com. There you will find the packages. Download the latest mozilla package there and then open up a terminal. From there type rpm -Uvh "filename.rpm" without the ""

It might make your life a lot easier if you install Apt4RPM and upgrade that way - this program will also resolve any of your dependencies automatically.
