Firefox 45 Installation
« on: May 20, 2017, 05:10:00 pm »
Hi

I'm just trying to install Firefox 45, but it seems to me that some of the libraries are missing on Netlabs RPM.

According to the readme you need to install "libstdc++6 nspr nss libicu pixman cairo pango fontconfig freetype libkai libvpx libjpeg-turbo libpng zlib bzip2 hunspell libcx"

Can someone please confirm or deny that?

Quote
[C:\]yum install libvpx libjpeg-turbo libpng zlib bzip2 hunspell libcx
Setting up Install Process
Package libvpx-1.6.1-1.oc00.pentium4 already installed and latest version
No package libjpeg-turbo available.
Package libpng-1.6.28-1.oc00.pentium4 already installed and latest version
Package zlib-1.2.11-1.oc00.pentium4 already installed and latest version
Package bzip2-1.0.6-6.oc00.pentium4 already installed and latest version
No package hunspell available.
Package libcx-0.5.2-1.oc00.pentium4 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

Regards

The "missing" libraries are in the netlabs/experimental repo.

It looked like we would not make it for WSE, that is why these libraries were not moved to release repo.

2 possibilities: Add netlabs/experimental to your repolist or wait until monday or tuesday when the libraries will be moved to release.

Hi Greggory,

...What's the link to repo?...

Not sure about the link you normally key-in, but here are the contents of the YUM repository setup on my system:

=== START ===
Directory of G:\etc\yum\repos.d

10-16-16  12:34p     <DIR>           0  .
10-31-16   9:08p     <DIR>           0  ..
 6-15-16   3:31a       140         124  arcanoae-exp.repo
 6-15-16   3:31a       129         124  arcanoae-rel.repo
10-16-16  12:03p       132           0  netlabs-exp.repo
 1-07-13   6:53a       223         124  netlabs-rel.repo
        6 file(s)        624 bytes used
                   2954021 K bytes free

[G:\etc\yum\repos.d]type netlabs-exp.repo
[netlabs-exp]
name=Netlabs Experimental Repository
baseurl=http://rpm.netlabs.org/experimental/$releasever/$basearch/
enabled=1

=== STOP ===

I think what you need to key-in is the "baseurl" information...

Hi Greggory,  I don't know if this is any use to you  http://rpm.netlabs.org/experimental/00/i386/i686/

I have it because I need to download the rpm, unpack it and then fit the DLLs into our existing setups to test before we send them out to out clients (rpm/yum is not certified for use on our clients machines).

Thank You Dariusz & Ivan

I found this from RPM site:

Experimental repository

The configuration for the experimental repository may be installed using

Code: [Select]
yum install netlabs-exp
If you cannot install the above package, download this ​file and put it into your %UNIXROOT%\etc\yum\repos.d directory.

It is possible to browse the experimental repository URL at the following URL:

​http://rpm.netlabs.org/experimental/00/i386/


Then install required packages !

Code: [Select]
yum install libstdc++6 nspr nss libicu pixman cairo pango fontconfig freetype libkai libvpx libjpeg-turbo libpng zlib bzip2 hunspell libcx

Be careful with the experimental repository, it's easy to screw things up. Just download the rpm and manually install, yum install turbojpeg-1.5.1-1.oc00.i686.rpm etc.
Might need to upgrade nspr as well.

They are still not available on netlabs-rel. Maybe we have to wait until Monday (or use one of the workarounds).
