installing firefox

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! :headbang:

I have just installed Mandrake 9.0 on a PenthiumIII, 500 Mhz with 15 Gbs for Windoze and the rest for Linux. :thumbs:

I have downloaded and installed the latest version of Mozilla in home/rejean/mozilla/ but when I try to copy the icon on the desktop it tells me that it cannot find the file or something like that. Is there a way around?

More important is that I downloaded Firefox but I cannot install it. During the installation I get the following message:

error [618] Couldn't open xpistub library.

Any suggestion anyone?

P.S. Where can I read about these errors and find out a solution.

Thanks in advance. :thanks:

I would try to download the rpm thrue urpmi,


urpmi mozilla-firefox


If you don't have sources get them from out FAQ section, I believe it's called " Solving urpmi dependensies " or something like that.

Hi Jet2k5 and spiedra!

Thanks for your replies! I will try your solution. In the meantime I am downloading the following:

firefox-0.9-i686-pc-javadesktopsystem2.tar.gz hoping that it might work.

Thanks again.
