  1. Thanks ZNX for fixing "yum remove firefox" in Step 3. I've been away and didn't see Hybrid's post. I just installed FF on a different machine, following the steps above (untarring to /usr/lib, Step 2). Worked fine. Thanks again.
  2. Yes! Thanks Hybrid! In the future, I'll do this: 1) Download the tar.gz archive from firefox's site to a folder in /usr/lib [or wherever old firefox is] 2) Untar: cd tar -xvzf firefox-2.0.tar.gz 3) Then remove the old firefox # yum remove firefox 4) Next check where the firefox folders are (here, usr/bin) and make a symbolic link: # ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/firefox/ /usr/bin/firefox # mv /usr/bin/firefox /usr/bin/firefox.old # ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox Run Firefox # firefox If you see a problem, please let me know, but that's basically what I did here. Thanks again! Nic
  3. Try doing this from a terminal: $ su - [[enter your root password when prompted]] # ln -s /usr/lib/firefox-xxx/firefox /usr/bin/firefox Change firefox-xxx for the folder where you put Firefox, and don't type the $ or # signs in front of the commands. With a bit of luck, typing firefox should then work! W00t - 200th post! Thanks Hybrid, I ran it, and created the file in usr/bin, but it still didn't work. Check it out: [root@nlap-012eba56c6 ~]# ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/firefox/ /usr/bin/firefox ln: `/usr/bin/firefox': File exists [root@nlap-012eba56c6 ~]# firefox bash: firefox: command not found [root@nlap-012eba56c6 ~]# cd /usr/lib/firefox [root@nlap-012eba56c6 firefox]# ./firefox And then FF 2.0 works fine, but why do I have to ./firefox it? Cheers, Nic
  4. UPDATE: I removed the old FF (yum remove firefox) and moved the FF 2.0 folder to usr/lib where the old folder was. Now, I can get FF 2.0 to run from the menu or by ./firefox in the terminal. But now trying to run 'firefox' from the terminal gets me "bash: firefox: command not found" This has to be something simple, but I can't figure it out.
  5. Hi there, I sort of installed FF 2.0: it runs from the applications menu and the "web browser" button in the GUI, but if I run 'firefox' from the terminal, I still get version 1.08. Here was my procedure: Downloaded the tar.gz archive from firefox's site to /home/ Untarred to home: cd tar -xvzf firefox-2.0.tar.gz then ran the firefox file in the directory I also lost my bookmarks in the old version. Can someone tell me what I did wrong? Thanks, Nic
  6. Thanks for the reply. I switched to acpi=off apc=on and it everything works fine. Thing is, the network card (and other PCI devices) worked fine with XP on the same machine (see grub config above). And FC4 ran the network card fine on a different machine with acpi on by default. So, where's the problem--in the mainboard or in FC4? I admit I don't know a lot about advanced power controls. Thanks!
  7. Hello, I ran a search for acpi=ht, but didn't get any hits on the forums. I'm hoping someone can help me solve a mystery. I was having trouble reaching the network with FC4. I had already configured other machines just fine, so I was stumped. On booting up the eth0 would get an IP address just fine, and in the network configuration screen the eth0 was active. I went over the configuration again and again, but neither Firefox nor the update program could connect. Then, using a suggestion from forums.fedoraforum.org/archive, I changed my grub config from this title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4) root (hd0,1) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet initrd /initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.img title Windows XP rootnoverify (hd0,0) chainloader +1 to this title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4) root (hd0,1) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 acpi=ht initrd /initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.img title Windows XP rootnoverify (hd0,0) chainloader +1 Now I can connect just fine. Great. Trouble is I don't know why. The other forum doesn't explain what acpi=ht is or how it fixed the problem. Can someone here help? Thanks a lot, Nic
