Firefox 2 on Fedora Core 6


Fedora Core 6 is all well and good, but it lacks Firefox 2.0. The following will install it properly.

[root@gizmo ~]# wget

[root@gizmo ~]# rpm -Uvh remi-release-1-1.fc6.remi.noarch.rpm

[root@gizmo ~]# yum --enablerepo=remi update firefox

Via: Remi Collet.

UPDATE: One of the nice things about the new firefox is the way is saves your tabs, so that you can restart with whatever you were looking at after a crash. This is really useful because Firefox2 seems to crash about every ten minutes.
