How to upgrade my Thunderbird
I have downloaded the upgrade rpm for Thunderbird as I am running .8 now. I have tried to install the 1.5 upgrade, but, as it requires, I put in the DVD and it just either wants to reinstall .8 or actually does so, depending on if I abort it first or not. How on earth do I make YAST do what it is supposed to do?
