Yes, these scripts are rough all right, I had used firefox_grab.pl to actually download Firefox, and so I do have a /opt/firefox directory, supposedly ready to go, with all that the downloaded items firefox-0.8-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz would put there.
My question is, why can't I run Firefox. I get as far as described in my earlier post, and "no cigar".
My plan was to get Firefox running, then return and try and work on the
scripts. I did change my filetool.lst to include the /opt/firefox directory, so I could keep what I already downloaded and unzipped. I don't have a
.phoenix or whatever yet, since Firefox didn't actually start. Since I have
MozillaFirebird (and Opera) on this box, I temporarily renamed .phoenix to get it out of the way in case Firefox ran and wanted to generate one.
Most likely, this edition of Firefox might get included in the next DSL,
then that will solve all that. I hear too that there is a new Dillo.
Other than clean up my scripts, I have no idea how I am going to get past the error message when run-mozilla.sh runs. I thought about downloading Firefox in Mandrake or something and see how that goes, but
I think the failure is on my part (within DSL), not Mozilla's.
BTW, I downloaded the Windows version, and that works fine.
