Cool Un-installing mozilla 1.2.1

Hi everyone.

I would like to install the newest version of mozilla. In reading the how to install pages it states I should first un-install all previous versions of the browser.

But in the pages I've read so far it gives me nary a clue on how to do that. It just tells me I should do it but not say how to do it.

Thanks for all your help.

I'll continue to search for the answer.

If you're using SUSE, you can probably use rpm (man rpm).

First of all, find out what's installed...

rpm -qa | grep -i mozilla

Then to remove the packages...

rpm -e <package-name>

is that version you want to uninstall installed by rpm? if you install the newest version of mozilla using mozilla's installer, you don't actually need to uninstall your previous version. and i wouldn't suggest uninstalling it either as galeon requires this version of mozilla to run. basically, you're version of mozilla should be installed in /usr/lib/mozilla-1.2.1

while installing the newest version of mozilla (version 1.5) using mozilla's installer will install it in /usr/local/mozilla. the command to run this version is /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla. i myself have 3 versions of mozilla installed with no problems, but i also only use the newest version.

to get java working you may need to upgrade your java version too (1.4.2_01 is the minimum) and follow these directions:
