Firefox download links:
Going to test this as soon as I get home on My Windows machine.
On my RHEL6 laptop however I couldn’t just unpack the linux version and run the ./firefox.
I also couldn’t find the installation guide. Nonetheless, it complains about this;
./firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
But sudo yum install gtk2 gives: Package gtk2-2.18.9-4.el6.x86_64 already installed and latest version.
And after a ‘find /’ I found the file here:
cat ~/find.all | grep libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0
How do I proceed? – Did not find anything online quick enough that would help me. The other requirements I could also find in my system..
I tried to run ./firefox-bin which complained about libxul.so which I also have in my system.
I tried to run it in a sudo, no difference.
If anybody reads this and has some ideas or so – please let me know :)
So I tried Google Chrome instead (haven’t tried this before) and wow, compared to Firefox 3.6.x which is the default one on RHEL6 it is really fast!
This is the link I used to install it and it worked perfectly:
- Add this to /etc/yum.repos.d/google.repo
[google64] name=Google - x86_64 baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/x86_64 enabled=1 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub
- yum install google-chrome-unstable
- start google-chrome with: google-chrome
