got the new mozilla working today (0.9.1) in linux. This release is a tremendous step forward! Renders html as fast as opera, but the result looks better. I had trouble getting the java plugin to work at first, it turned out I had an rpm installed of an earlier milestone. Once I removed the old version, the new version worked fine. Here’s my resulting install process:
Download the newest binary (here).
extract the tarball in /tmp.
make sure all mozilla rpms are removed
run the installer: ./mozilla-installer
pick the ``install everything’’ option (I used the default location /usr/local/mozilla)
find . -type f | xargs chmod go+r
find . -type d | xargs chmod go+rx
next you need to set up some plugins. I re-used my shockwave (flash) plugin from netscape 4.77:
ln -s /usr/local/netscape/plugins/libflashplayer.so .
ln -s /usr/local/netscape/plugins/ShockwaveFlash.class .
for java, you need to get and install the jre, I ended up with j2re-1_3_0_02-linux.bin (I think I got it from sun’s java page)
ln -s /usr/local/jre1.3.0_02/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji.so .
Now as a user, you need to set some environment variables (I use tcsh, you’ll have to change the syntax if you use bash):
setenv MOZZILLA_HOME /usr/local/mozilla
setenv NPX_PLUGIN_PATH /usr/local/mozilla/plugins:/usr/local/jre1.3.0_02/plugin/i386
put those in your ~/.login file (or their equivalent in ~/.bash_profile) and you’re ready to run:
