Mandrake 10 and MoZilla Update?


I downloaded the newest version of the Mozilla rpm, but I can't update it... is there a command I can use to force it to upgrade everything including the dependencies?

rpm -i mozilla-1.7.6-3mdk.i586.rpm
warning: mozilla-1.7.6-3mdk.i586.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 78d019f5
error: Failed dependencies:
gtk+2 >= 2.4.0 is needed by mozilla-1.7.6-3mdk
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3.4) is needed by mozilla-1.7.6-3mdk



Now if I try to update those, I get about a millionothers that I have to update to... its a neverending chain of crap I have to keep finding the RPMs for.

Is there any way around that?

The sad truth, is that it is next to impossible to update Mozilla without updating most of everything else. That's because the mozilla rendering engine (called Gecko) is used at several places in Gnome, and some other places too. That's not bad in itself. It just means, that:
- either you update everything necessary, using urpmi if possible, and obviously with a direct connection to internet,
- or you install *another* version of Mozilla alongside the old one.

You could just install the binary package from mozilla.org. It should work fine without causing problems with dependencies.

Yes. That's what I did (firefox binary, alongside Mdk's Mozilla).

Okey doke. I downloaded it, but it installs into a local directory... even if I execute the installer under su. How can I have it install under the common dir so that everyone can use it?

You'll probably have to add your own toolbar buttons, or desktop launchers, or menu entries...
