Re: graphical browser for alpha/stable
Thanks a lot for your hints! Now I know there are 3 different ways:
A) alpha/stable only: this was discussed to some extend in
Basically this ends up in downloading some alien rpm. I have tested
some things, nothing works for me but see below:(
B) mixing stable with testing to use mozilla and/or galeon. I don't
want to do this up to now. Nor do I want to upgrade to woody (since
woody becames stable in the near future?)
C) compiling mozilla and/or galeon from source (in stable): The next
thing I try if variant A) doesn't succeed.
Problems with A): every rpm I've tried with 'alien $rpm; dpkg -i $rpm'
- SuSE 7.1 netscape-4.76
- ftp://updates.redhat.com/7.0/en/os/alpha/netscape-communicator-4.77-1.alpha.rpm (and netscape-common-4.77-1.alpha.rpm)
All failed with the following error although the file exists, and is exutable
bash: ./netscape: No such file or directory
What is missing?
BTW: Alianating ftp://gatekeeper.dec.com/pub/linux/alphalinux/mozilla/mozilla0.9/rh-6x/mozilla-0.9-0.alpha.rpm ends up with:
only packages with major numbers <= 3 are supported by this version of RPM
query of mozilla-0.9-0.alpha.rpm failed
This one was only a test, no help required:)
