Firefox 2.0 and Yum for RHEL5

Where can i find the Yum installer and firefox 2.0 installer for my RHEL 5 server i386? I have looked for the rpm and am unable to find one.

Yum is installed by default, GUI interfaces for yum are not.

$ rpm -qa 'yum*' | sort

Open an xterm session and try the following;

/usr/bin/yum -c 'check-update'

You might need to register at least one system in RHN for yum to work.

Firefox2 for RHEL5 is not an option for a number of reasons. This however is not a big issue or much of a problem. Download the firefox- rpm package from Fedora Development along with the fedora-bookmarks-6-2 rpm package and install both at the same time;

rpm -Uvh firefox*.rpm fedora*.rpm
