Use firefox.SlackBuild

Code:
#!/bin/sh
#
PRGNAM=mozilla-firefox
VER="2.0.0.2"
PKG=${PRGNAM}-${VER}-`uname -m`-1
ARC=firefox
SRC=~/downloads/rpm/${ARC}-${VER}.tar.gz
#
# --- with a little luck, you won't have to edit below this point ---
#
BUILD=`pwd`
WORK=/tmp/$ARC.work
INST=$WORK/inst
SLACKBUILD=${INST}/usr/src/slackbuilds/${ARC}
#
# Exit the script on errors:
set -e 
trap 'echo "$0 FAILED at line $LINENO!" | tee $WORK/error.log' ERR
#
set -u
P1=${1:-1}
#
if [ -a ${WORK} ]; then
  rm -rd ${WORK}
fi
#
# --- CLEANUP ---
# Beenden, da immer erst gelöscht wird.
if [ "$P1" = "--cleanup" ]; then
  echo cleanup done.
  exit 0
fi
#
mkdir ${WORK}
mkdir -p ${INST}/install
mkdir -p ${SLACKBUILD}
mkdir -p ${INST}/usr/bin
mkdir -p ${INST}/usr/lib
cd ${INST}/usr/lib
tar -xf ${SRC}
mv ${ARC} ${ARC}-${VER}
cd ${INST}
#
cat <<EOINS > install/doinst.sh
( cd usr/bin ; rm -rf ${ARC} )
( cd usr/bin ; ln -sf /usr/lib/${ARC}-${VER}/${ARC} ${ARC} )
( cd usr/lib ; rm -rf ${ARC} )
( cd usr/lib ; ln -sf ${ARC}-${VER} ${ARC} )

EOINS
#
cp ${BUILD}/slack-desc install
cp ${BUILD}/slack-desc ${SLACKBUILD}
cp ${BUILD}/${ARC}.SlackBuild ${SLACKBUILD}
#
tree | tee $WORK/makepkg.log
find -ls | tee -a $WORK/makepkg.log
makepkg --linkadd y --chown n ${WORK}/${PKG}.tgz | tee -a $WORK/makepkg.log
(cd $WORK && md5sum $PKG.tgz > $PKG.tgz.md5)
grep "^${PRGNAM}" > ${WORK}/${PKG}.txt < ${BUILD}/slack-desc
#
ls -l ${WORK}/${PKG}.t*
echo $0 FERTIG
and slack-desc

Code:
# HOW TO EDIT THIS FILE:
# The "handy ruler" below makes it easier to edit a package description.  Line
# up the first '|' above the ':' following the base package name, and the '|'
# on the right side marks the last column you can put a character in.  You must
# make exactly 11 lines for the formatting to be correct.  It's also
# customary to leave one space after the ':'.

I know how to build a slackware package.I use slackware for more than 2-3 years. But thanx for the reply.
I 'm just asking if anyone knows anything about this because it seems strange to me.

Maybe they've got more important things to do than do some minor upgrades of a web browser right when it's out?

I agree with perfect_circle. Given the enthusiasm with which Pat "pushed" Firefox 2, one could expect to see security updates in a timely manner.

Try this ... install FF in your user directory and then it can update itself.

I'd rather suggest using the package from LinuxPackages, it appears to work fine.

Which sucks a lot, when you have multiple users on your system.

then put it in a global directory with r/w access to everyone ... or is that not safe ?

To be honest, I've got my FF (and TB) in /opt/, with only read permissions.
You can shut that off pretty good, as far as safety is concerned.
But especially embedded media is a disaster when you pull tricks like this (yeah, there are work-arounds, but they all suck deeply, IMHO)..

Possibly because Firefox 1.5.x is the "stable" version; Firefox 2.x.x is the beta version out there for testing.
