Is there an rpm for mozilla 1.5 so I can do -Uvh? Can't remove 1.2.1 so I can use tar


or can someone tell me how to remove mozilla? I've tried rpm -e mozilla-1.2.1-27 but there are some dependancies. I'm going to install 1.5 right afterwords but don't know how to remove it in the first place. Help?

Thanks.

look in add/remove applications, go to graphical internet, and uncheck all the mozilla programs, then click update. when its finished, install mozilla from the tar.gz and put a link to the mozilla program (label it "mozilla") in your /usr/bin folder to make all your old shortcuts work.

Yeah I did that but I get a failed dependancies thing. It just won't let me do it cause Galeon and a few other pgrms use mozilla. Can I install 1.5 and then remove 1.2.1? what kind of shortcut would I make....just a "link to application"?

Thanks.

btw I'm using rh9 if that makes any diff.
