Compiling Packages for Ubuntu on Slackware
I build my own Firefox packages on my Slackware 12.1 installations, but I would like to build Firefox 3 for my Daughter's laptop which is running the original (not-updated) installation of Ubuntu Gutsy.
I know I will have to make some of the compiler flags more 'generic', but I know little about the compatibility of versions of library packages on the two installations.
For example, Slackware 12.1 has GCC 4.2.3 which I think is a bit more recent than the one on 'Gutsy'. Will this be a problem and are there other library versions that would make the Firefox not run on the Ubuntu installation?.
Thanks for any advice.
