I am new to the linux-type OS environment. For about a week now I have tried to do a task which I first thought would be simple-install a program like firefox.
I did "sudo pkg_add -r firefox" as explained in chapter 4 of the handbook and received the message: pkg_add: package 'firefox-126.96.36.199,1' or its older version already installed I then tried to uninstall firefox like this: sudo pkg_delete -d -f firefox-188.8.131.52,1 It appeard to uninstall. I next did "sudo pkg_add -r firefox" again and it did this: > Fetching ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6.2-release/Latest /firefox.tbz... > Done. > ===> Building Chrome's registry... > > ====================================================================== > > SMB issues: > Network group, machine, and share browsing does not work correctly. > > SFTP: > Only sftp access using public key authentication works. To easily > setup public key authentication to "remote_host": > > ssh-keygen -t dsa > cat ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub | ssh remote_host "cat >> .ssh/authorized_keys" > > The SSH sever on remote_host must allow pub key authentication. Firefox now does not work at all and if I rerun the pkg_add command it states firefox-184.108.40.206 is still installed. Isn't the latest 220.127.116.11? I tried to instructions at firefox and they did not work: http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Installing+Firefox+on+Linux Marc Fromm Information Technology Specialist II Financial Aid Department Western Washington University Phone: 360-650-3351 Fax: 360-788-0251 _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
