Yes -- I've got that version of the devtools disc, and I've tried & failed to build Mozilla three times; each time it has failed at the final dpkg stages. The build process -- which took a solid 24 hours on my poor little iMac (233 mhz G3, 160 mb ram, OSX 10.1.3) -- *seemed* to finish cleanly each time, ending up by the normal removal of the /sw/src/mozilla... build directory and the creation of the mozilla...deb file, but then the dpkg steps fail, and I don't know enough about Debian's apt/dpkg system to diagnose the problem there. Sample output follows: [localhost Wed 2:02:31pm ~]% sudo fink install mozilla Reading package info... Information about 353 packages read in 26 seconds. pkg mozilla version ### pkg mozilla version 0.9.8-1 The following package will be installed or updated: mozilla dpkg -i /sw/fink/dists/stable/main/binary-darwin-powerpc/web/mozilla_0.9.8-1_darwin-powerpc.deb (Reading database ... 55675 files and directories currently installed.)

I'm not even that worried about having Mozilla in the first place -- I think I'd rather give Galeon or one of the other lightweight Mozilla derivatives a try, but they all depend on having Mozilla present. Has anyone had any success in getting Mozilla or a Mozilla related browser working on Darwin with Fink? Coming at it from a different direction, could Darwin run a BSD or Linux version of Netscape 4.x? I'd like to be able to get an X11 based graphical browser working, and Mozilla seemed like the most straightforward option at first, but now I'm not sure. -- Chris Devers [EMAIL PROTECTED] Apache / mod_perl / http://homepage.mac.com/chdevers/resume/ _______________________________________________ Fink-devel mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/fink-devel
