I have the same problem and I am looking for an answer. There seem to be plenty of people using it OK.

I suggested to someone else the other day to go to the thunderbird prerequisites page, and make sure you have them all installed. Although lightening will still run without them all, it won't work properly as you seem to be describing.

I think that might have been me. I can't resolve all those dependencies without upgrading my entire system apparently. Maybe I'm not understanding something but it seems that you can't install a newer version of a lib package say glibc if there are installed packages depending on and older version. I'm not sure why newer versions are not backward compatible e.g. some_app-1.2.0 requires glibc-2.8 (installed) but some_new_app-2.3 requires glibc- >=3.0 but rpm won't replace glibc-2.8 with glibc-3.0 because glibc-3.0 won't be compatible with some_app-1.2.0 (installed). Why is this? I try to keep my system up to date with yum but I always have problems with unresolvable dependencies.

How do you keep FC5 up to date - aren't the repos clesed? It's certainly past its support date

ps - re-read you last post on the other thread after seeing your name pop up here.
