I noticed this bug too on Red Hat 8.  I'm a linux newbie (of sorts) but I
eventually gave up, because it was clear Mozilla was not going to get installed.
Ever confirmed: true

>Blocker: This bug prevents you from testing or developing Mozilla.

Seems to fit.  I'm sure when this is triaged it might get it's severity downed.
Severity: minor → blocker
doesn't block Mozilla development (use the installer builds)

download all Mozilla 1.4 RPMs
rpm -Fvh mozilla*
rpm -e mozilla-whatever
rpm -ivh mozilla-nss-1* mozilla-nspr-1* mozilla-1*

you can't install them one at a time.

if the old ones were gone, you wouldn't get messages like
"mozilla-nspr=1.0.2-1.8.0 required by mozilla-nss".
rpm -qa | grep mozilla
Whiteboard: INVALID

This bug report is registered in the SeaMonkey product, but has been without a comment since the inception of the SeaMonkey project. This means that it was logged against the old Mozilla suite and we cannot determine that it's still valid for the current SeaMonkey suite. Because of this, we are setting it to an UNCONFIRMED state.

If you can confirm that this report still applies to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it back to the NEW state along with a comment on how you reproduced it on what Build ID, or if it's an enhancement request, why it's still worth implementing and in what way.
If you can confirm that the report doesn't apply to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it to the appropriate RESOLVED state (WORKSFORME, INVALID, WONTFIX, or similar).
If no action happens within the next few months, we move this bug report to an EXPIRED state.

We don't ship RPMs for trunk builds.
