Upgrading to Mozilla 1.0 on Mandrake 8.2; dependency fears.

Post by Adam » Thu, 04 Jul 2002 19:23:55



I'm running Mandrake 8.2, which includes Mozilla 0.9.8, which I'd like to
upgrade to 1.0. The Mozilla 1.0 installation instructions say to remove the
existing version before installing the new one.

However, when I try to do this (using the Mandrake package manager), it
wants to remove a lot of other stuff dependent on Mozilla, including
Galeon, the how-tos, and gnome-core-1.4.0.6! So I'm afraid to do this.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Adam

Another take on this. I'm thinking about changing to Red Hat 7.3 soon.
According to the list it comes with Mozilla 0.9.9 -- does anyone know if
it's possible to install RedHat 7.3, including Gnome, without installing
Mozilla? If so, I could add Mozilla 1.0 to a clean, Mozilla-free
installation.

Thanks,
Adam

RedHat lets you pick and choose nearly every item during the initial
install.  I chose to install Mozilla and leave out Netscape.

Would it let you install without either of the two? (Then add Mozilla 1.0
later.)

I Just installed Mozilla 1.0 on my redhat 7.3 which had Mozilla 0.9.9.
I just upgraded with the command rpm -Uvh rpm-file-here and I didn't
notice a problem with mozilla at all.  I also did the same in a
Mandrake 8.2 machine.

If you run into problems with Evolution after you install Mozilla 1.0
go here

for a fix.

1. mozilla 0.98 & OR 1.0 turmoil on mandrake 8.2

mozilla 0.98 & OR 1.0 turmoil on mandrake 8.2

perhaps some of you have experienced this.
you might have been using mozilla 0.98 with minor complaints for
browsing and mail and news; then one day mozilla redirected you to the
1.0 upgrade and you downloaded the tgz file

like me, you probably installed it in /usr/local/
cd to the /usr/local/mozilla-install/ dir and ran the install sh

then, like me, you may have noticed that
[1] the `which mozilla` that you run was not linked to the newer
version, and
[2] you had a virgin configuration so no mail, group, or addressbook.

the first problem of the binary i thought i could fix by linking
/usr/bin/mozilla to the mozilla in the new /usr/local/mozilla/ dir;
ALWAYS occurs segmentation fault with Cannot find mozilla runtime
directory. Exiting

i must run the entire path /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla *each time*
this defies all logic, but it's true.
i shouldn't speculate since my specialty is not mozilla, but i suspect
there is some MOZILLA env variable that is screwed up

[2] is the major problem.
when i first ran the new 1.0 mozilla, the software asked me to define
my email account etc.  there apparently was *no way* to point mozilla
to my old Inbox and Addressbook and mail files

*if* i had had this option, then there might have not been so much
hell afterwards

sadly, there is apparently no way to do this.
therefore, depending on my emails for schedules, tasks, and
information from lists etc, i needed my email back up and running
immediately.

i then executed a /bin/cp -frp from my *old* mozilla so-called
"profile" dir with its cryptic name d0cfswr.zjt and copied all the
files to the new "profile" directory recursively.

then i restarted mozilla
the profile appeared, in addition to the profile i configured at the
time of the first startup, but the Inbox was not visible

then the Addressbook and Bookmarks
same thing

i tried various configurations and copy attempts to no good end

so here is my question

what should i do the next time i install mozilla in order to
*preserve* ALL my settings, including
o all mail settings
o addressbook
o bookmarks

i was beginning to enjoy mozilla and then discovered that its
configuration is too complex simply to copy over files

there are 142 megabytes in my .mozilla dir
not much of that is mail anymore and i can't access it anyway (no, not
a perms issue, the files simply do not display in the mozilla mail and
newsgroups applet or whatever it is)

Hope someone can help guide me so that i can preserve these things in
the future

**second question**

how do i know exactly which files belong to the

o addressbook configuration
o email configuration
o bookmarks

is there a way that i can ***MERGE*** these files into a current
configuration?    i must hand it to sendmail, at least i can cat a
/var/spool/mail/user inbox file to another mailbox name and it will
work fine

i suppose mozilla programmers forgot one of the most foundational
principles of programming: KISS

2. how do I change DNS nameservers?
