Eee pc updating firefox
For new models that run Eee PC Linux version 1.6, Asus has provided a "firefox-upgrade" package that upgrades the libc version to 2.7-13 and install firefox3 and flashplayer 10.
This is however not enabled by default in old Eee PC models.
The operating system was a custom version of Linux called Xandros and came in a tabbed interface which I switched to a full desktop mode (KDE) installation option.I don't know if they otherwise update applications in-between releases either in the official repositories or in Packman.There are special extra repositories for people who want to have more up to date versions like this one SUSE_12.1 replace the 12.1 at the end with 11.4 if you need it for 11.4 it has Firefox 8 and Thunderbird 8.you do not have to do anything out of the normal, stable, dependable FOUR repos mentioned in the paragraph beginning with "IMPORTANT!
" here i've been using Su SE, SUSE and open SUSE since 9.x and today i have only those four repo's enabled.....*and* i have Firefox 8 and Thunderbird 3.1.16 installed (via the update repo) simply by running Ya ST Online Update.. ymmv -- DD D open SUSE®, the "German Automobiles" of operating systems hello to the others in this thread!After a while, I could see that the original operating system was difficult to keep updated, so I decided to install a new operating system.
