Opinion request : shall we see a Firefox 1.5 RPM ?
Hiya folks !
I installed Firefox 1.5 on my Mandriva2006 through the source, and it worked just fine.
Alas, the mplayer plugin didn't manage to work with 1.5, probably the wrong files in the wrong place, though I carefully noted what was in /usr/lib/mozilla and usr/lib/mozilla-firefox, and placed it in the FF1.5 folder.
So I have a completely useless firefox unable to play media files embedded in pages -> I resumed to using my rpm-based Firefox 1.0.6
In your opinion, will Mandriva, some day, provide us with an RPM for such a major release as firefox 1.5 ? ^_^
(or if you find an alternative repository with such an RPM, even though PLF does not have it, i'd be interested ^^)

Why from source, FFX for linux has an excellent GUI installer with BINARIES, not that anything is wrong with source(my preffered method) but the installer would probably do a better job for most users.
