Question mozilla 1.6 (1.5) installation problem


I tried to install mozilla 1.6 on my slack 9.0 box, but when I ran the installer and tried to install the navigator I receive the following error during installation : Error [-621]: An Installer module browser.xpi (.xpi) failed to install.

I downloaded mozilla 1.5, but I received the same error. I even checked the md5 sums and everything was fine. I just can't figure out what goes wrong.

I'll appreciate any help. If someone have had a similar problems... I did some googling but I didn't found anything.

Greetings,
valo

Are you installing it as the root user or installing it in a directory you have write permissions in?

I think that he's using the *.tar.gz file anyway - if you untar that, it give you the mozilla-installer.

nope, that's the .sea.tar.gz, the .tar.gz is just the mozilla directory in a tarball
