Hi,

I'm attempting to install Firefox (firefox_1.0.6-r0) from the feed.

Typing the following:

ipkg update
ipkg install firefox -d sd <-- i want to install to SD card

Installation appears to proceed normally (firefox downloads from the feed), then I get the following error:

ERROR: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for firefox:
gconf-osso (>= 2.6.4.3.1osso13) osso-gnome-vfs2 (>= 2.8.4.4-1) osso-gnome-vfs2
(>=2.8.4.4-1) gconf-osso (>= 2.6.4.3.1osso13)

Any tips on how to make this work?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Randall

Thanks for the quick response. Looks like Thunderbird has the same issue, missing the same dependencies.

Best Regards,

ummm...not to take this thread way off topic, but does that mean you can sync thunderbird w/ a desktop thunderbird?Like run a script to update everytime you plug in the Z?

Provided that Thunderbird is running on the Zaurus, then I imagine that would be possible. The mail data file structures would be the same.

well, how do you do it? Do you just download a copy of your e-mail? Care to explain what you use thunderbird for on your Z? I'm assuming e-mail, since that's it's main function...

I'm using Thunderbird on the Z under pdaXrom. It's my secondary means of checking'and reading emai, when I don't feel like hauling around a laptop. I've configured it to leave messages on the server, so that when I am using Thunderbird on my main system (my laptop), it will re-retrieve the mail, even the messages that I have already read on the Z. I don't sync at all between the two. The Z at most has a day or two of messages.

Hopefully Thunderbird will get fixed for OZ soon!

Cheers,
Randall.

Hi,
I ran:
ipkg -nodeps install firefox
and is working perfectly. Maybe the fix that we need is only the dependencies.

Regards,

Jose

Both Firefox AND Thunderbird was rebuilt and both are installable - just checked.

Hmmm... something strange here : I hit bug http://bugs.treke.net/show_bug.cgi?id=692 when I try "bitbake firefox" in oz354x...

maybe something was not committed, if you manage to generate firefox and not me ?

UPDATE : my fault, it appears I tried and compile firefox with a modified environment (patch correcting compilation problem for minimo : http://bugs.treke.net/show_bug.cgi?id=692 ), which obviously causes a problem only here wink.gif.

Consider I've said nothing.

obergix: You have problem with building and I'm talking about installing from feed - please to not mess people in heads with your problem.
rrnwexec
Is it possible to install to SD card yet? My 6000 doesn't have the space to install internally.

Thanks,
Randall

Sorry for the noob question, but is firefox available for 3.5.4.1 Akita?
It's not in the feeds that were setup by default.
Hrw
3.5.4.1-alpha can use 3.5.4 feed without problems and gpe-image is configured with right feeds to install it.

Did you install to CF or SD? Can you post the method you used to install?

Thanks in advance.

Installed to SD (which for me is an ext2 formatted fs). Didn't have to do anything special, just 'ipkg -d sd install firefox' & then 'ipkg-link add' all the dependant packages. Just to be safe, do a 'ipkg-link mount /media/card/packages' (if for sd) afterwards.

I think my feeds were messed up and that's why I couldn't see just "firefox".

Is there a consensus in this thread that firefox in OZ is too slow (basically unusable when compared to opera on sharp/cacko or is this too drastic of a statement)? Also, is there any hope for something to be optimized to make it usable (and any chance someone is working on this)?

I would categorize it as only marginally usable. I wouldn't go as far as saying it is unusable.

Dillo is the speed champ, while Opera is the features/speed trade-off champ. Firefox is in need of a good "haircut" to be responsive enough for everyday use. It's too bloated.

Try gpe-mini-browser
Antikx
My 2 cents:
Opera / Netfront: quite good and fast but does not always render pages properly

gpe-mini-browser: quite good and fast but found it a bit unstable

Dillo: very, very fast and can render most pages

Firefox: almost unusable untill I create a swap partition. Now I use it when Dillo can't render a page, but still too slow to use as main browser.

Thank you for very useful discussion of firefox and other browser options.
Up until now I was under impression that it is not worth it to try oz (or pdaxrom) until firefox is properly running on it (or opera gets native port etc). However, it seems like the opinion in the community is that some of the smaller browsers are actually not that far off at least in ability to quickly and properly render most pages (and that is all I'm really interested in and what has been holding me on cacko until now - since browsing and ssh is at least 80% of my z usage I could not see justification to mess with "alternative" roms unless they have a decent browser).
