Talking Here is The Location of a firefox 1.5 slack package


I found this package and installed it on a slapt-get up-to-date full 10.2 install, no gnome.

http://packages.slackforge.net/slackware-10.2/

Used upgradepkg installed with no errors or messages, runs great.

Have Fun

Update for me:
Flash plugin works on my workstation, but not on my laptop. Both are on test26 kernel with full installs, not sure what the issue is, but it doesn't really bother me as a lot of ads are flash.
