When installed the latest mozilla using mozilla-installer as a su, the whole envoirment got screwed up
. It can't even find the command which
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0) Build Identifier: I used the latest build downloades from www.mozilla.org/start It happened to me twice. Before I wanted to upgrade to Mozilla 1.3 using mozilla-installer. It screwed up the whole envoirment where no commnds could be find. I had to reinstall Redhat 9. then I was using the latest beta version and it was working. Then the webpage www.mozilla.org/start said that there is a new one available and I installed the mozilla-installer and follwed the steps in it and again the whole envoirment is screwed up. I typed which it said no which in /usr/bin. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Use redhat 9 2.Use mozilla-installer. Do which mozilla and tell the installer to install in same place. It will like to delete the older version and say yes. Complete the process and you will see that there are commands like which and so which are broken. 3. There is a striking similarity in both cases I mentioned. When I tried to shut down there was a red flag when shutting canna server. It seems that mozilla-installer is screwing up canna server in redhat 9. Actual Results: see above Expected Results: Don't screw up my computer after I install.
Moving to the Install component. Seems more relevant. Reporter: do you know what you were installing (was it version 1.3.1, 1.4b?)
Component: Download Manager → Installer
Where did the installer say the old mozilla version was located at? This sounds like bug 69153
1.4 Release Candidate 1.
Reply to Jesiah S. Mozilla-installer by default had the installation path as /usr/local/bin. I did a which mozilla and found that it was in /usr/bin/. So I changed the path, then it said it did found previous version and wants to delete it, I gave permission. Ayan
what you have described is bug 69153. the default install location is not "/usr/local/bin", but rather "/usr/local/mozilla". Mozilla expects that it owns the directory it is installed to (and can therefore delete in it during uninstall). *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 69153 ***
