Upgrading Mozilla

Hello everyone!

I am trying to install an RPM that requires Mozilla version 1.2 or greater. The problem is that Mozilla 1.0 is shipped with Redhat 8.0 and 9.0. I downloaded the new version of Mozilla and I installed it. I also removed the Mozilla 1.0 package from the system. The problem is that the system doesn't recognize that I have installed Mozilla 1.3.1. Does anyone know how I can properly upgrade Mozilla so that Redhat 8.0 will recognize the change. (More specifically, so that Redhats RPM manager will recognize the change).

Thanks a million!

Find a RedHat rpm with a newer Mozilla?

If there is none, use a rpm -i --nodeps...


P.S.: RPM sucks ;) - specially in situations where
there IS no RPM package for what you want available ;)

This is a perfect time to learn to use apt4rpm. I know I post about apt too much but it really is a useful tool. go to -ivh the appropriate rpm. Then from the CLI as root:
$apt-get update
$apt-get install package_name

If you get an error that says no such package. Google around for a repository for your particular distro/version and add it to your sources.list file.

<disclaimer> apt will not solve all problems, but it should be the first thing one installs on an rpm based distro</disclaimer>
