Can I upgrade to Mozilla 1.7.3 for my school server running K12LTSP 3.1.2 (Redhat 9) using the k12linux FC2 yum update repository?

#yum upgrade mozilla*

The 3.1.2 repositories only update me to Mozilla 1.4.2

Easily. Just install it in somewhere like /usr/local/mozilla/ avoid clobbering your existing Mozilla installation (things like Galeon depend on the original)


Then, to have your users use the new Moz, just symlink /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla to /usr/bin/mozilla, and that'll do 'er. Note that you'll have to rename the existing /usr/bin/mozilla script; I use something like "/usr/bin/mozilla142". That's how I do it on all my boxes. BTW, this trick works very nicely with Firefox, too; I've done it on several GNU/Linux and OpenBSD boxes. Install Firefox into, say, /usr/local/firefox/, symlink /usr/local/firefox/firefox to /usr/bin/mozilla, and the next time someone clicks on the Mozilla icon, Firefox pops up. :-)
