Can't install firefox 1.0.2 on MDK 10.1
I just downloaded firefox from the link that flatline provided (see post http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/top...ight=firefox+1). I used this command to unpack and install the rpm file:
[root@Mercury alex]# rpm -i firefox-1.0.2-1mcnl.i586.rpm
[alex@Mercury alex]$ firefox &  12945 [alex@Mercury alex]$ SCIM: im_module_init free(): invalid pointer 0x82055d8! free(): invalid pointer 0x82055b0!
Pasted below is the part of /var/log/messages during the time period that firefox was installed:

Any help is appreciated.
I set up the urpmi source for a different ftp server (my uni's). It asked for some package dependancies which i also installed. Now after urpmi has finished, the same error occurs. I'm begining to think that it is something to do with my machine rather than firefox itself.
I'm running out of ideas, please help.
On a side note, firefox 1.0.2 installed on Win XP without a problem.
I'm using a french version of firefox, a version that has no RPM supplied, so I don't have the same version as you.
But as for me, for FF, things went smoothly, I extracted them to a folder (righ-click on the tar.gz, "extract here"), went into the folder, and in the Terminal asked ./firefox-installer ... and the installer started smoothly and finished perfectly. Just had to add myself a shortcut for FF in the KDE menu.
Maybe you could try downloading and compiling the source ?
Thats an idea i'll try in the morning. Do you have any instructions/walkthrus on how to install via the source files?
Normally with any programs, i just untar them or use rpms. So compiling from the source is a bit new to me.
Any help is appreciated.
Yeah, but for Firefox, it's more precisely like that :
in konqueror, in the folder where the .tar.gz firefox is, right click it, and ask "extract here".
Enter the newly created folder.
Inside that folder, start a terminal, log as root ("su"), and enter :
