I have seen some very complicated explanations being given out to users who want to install/update Firefox on Open SuSE. Tarball, compile, blah, blah. It does not have to be so difficult. Steps for Open SuSE 10.2: 1. Press Alt+F2 2. type yast and press enter 3. Type your root password and press enter 4. Click on Installation sources 5. Add the following source http://software.opensuse.org/download/mozilla/openSUSE_10.2/ 6. Click finish 7. Open software management icon in yast 8. type firefox in the search box 9. click on the tick mark next to firefox to update 10. click accept and you've finished! For those of you using other versions of Open SuSE the link in step 5 differs. Go to http://software.opensuse.org/download/mozilla/ and select the appropriate subfolder and add its url to yast sources So for Open SuSE 10.1 http://software.opensuse.org/download/mozilla/SUSE_Linux_10.1/ Open SuSE 10.0 http://software.opensuse.org/download/mozilla/SUSE_Linux_10.0/ and SuSE 9.3 http://software.opensuse.org/download/mozilla/SUSE_Linux_9.3/ Let me know if you have any trouble !
