http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I have been having trouble with firefox3.5 on my x86_64 FC11 install for a month now...firefox freezes my pc. So I used yum to remove firefox. Now I'm wondering if I could just use another rpm for firefox...could I use the 32 bit version safely? I found the rpm and started doing a local install with yum but it wants these dependencies: yum localinstall --nogpgcheck firefox-3.5-1.fc11.i586.rpm ================================================== ================================================== ========================== Package Arch Version Repository Size ================================================== ================================================== ========================== Installing: firefox i586 3.5-1.fc11 /firefox-3.5-1.fc11.i586 17 M Installing for dependencies: GConf2 i586 2.26.2-1.fc11 updates 1.7 M ORBit2 i586 2.14.17-1.fc11 fedora 186 k PolicyKit i586 0.9-6.fc11 fedora 165 k alsa-lib i586 1.0.20-1.fc11 fedora 419 k avahi-glib i586 0.6.25-3.fc11 updates 19 k bzip2-libs i586 1.0.5-5.fc11 fedora 39 k cracklib i586 2.8.13-4 fedora 50 k gnome-vfs2 i586 2.24.1-2.fc11 fedora 947 k hal-libs i586 0.5.12-26.20090226git.fc11 fedora 70 k libIDL i586 0.8.13-1.fc11 fedora 89 k libacl i586 2.2.47-4.fc11 fedora 24 k libbonobo i586 2.24.1-1.fc11 fedora 487 k libgnome i586 2.26.0-1.fc11 fedora 732 k libxml2 i586 2.7.3-2.fc11 fedora 855 k pam i586 1.0.91-6.fc11 fedora 767 k popt i586 1.13-5.fc11 fedora 41 k python-libs i586 2.6-9.fc11 updates 663 k startup-notification i586 0.9-6.fc11 fedora 39 k xulrunner i586 1.9.1-1.fc11 updates 10 M Transaction Summary ================================================== ================================================== ========================== Install 20 Package(s) Update 0 Package(s) Remove 0 Package(s) Is this ok to do with yum?
