My eyes are going....I really try to find and answer before posting...but I don't seem able to find it.
Upon succesfully installing DSL (YEAH - 1st Linux install that went as promised ) I wanted to upgrade Firefox to 2.0. So went mozilla.com & DLed the the tarball. I unzipped it, but that's where my Linux knowledge starts to fall off.
I posted in another area (for general Linux questions) and it was suggested to me that I useMyDSL & 2.0 was in there. After finding MyDSL (under my browser window), I found that it had 0.9 & 1.2 but no 2.0. So I continued reading. Saw a post about upgrading to 1.5 & tried to follow it.
I used MyDSL to DL gtk2-0705.dsl, but I was stuck there. Further reading has indicated that I need to unzip this the same as any gz tarball - Correct?
After that what do I do? How do I get the MyDSL option to "Update to Gtk2" (as I read) or do I even need to in RC3.1?
(BTW Being new here & reading alot of posts, without my knowing when releases came out, there is a lack of referencing which releases are being referenced in the posts)
Another post I read, said something about Firefox 2.0 showing up after "updating the repositories"...How is this done?
Basically I see (for right now) that the MyDSL link on the desktop is to an extension tool for getting available tarballs - Correct?
How do I install the tarballs afterwards?
I know how to unzip tarballs (tar zxf file.name)
To blury eyed to see anymore.....
