User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-GB; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040116
Build Identifier: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.7/contrib/mozilla-sparc-sun-solaris2.8_1.7.tar.bz2

When I downloaded the latest stable version of Mozilla (1.7 for Solaris/SPARC),
as contributed by Sun Microsystems, I discovered that the package was actually
for the x86 platform, not SPARC as listed. Is this a mistake in uploading the
files onto the Mozilla website?

We can only use the Sun-contributed build of Mozilla here, since the alternative
build only supports printing via XPrint which is not installed on our cluster.

Apologies, I have just downloaded the package again and it is, as you suggest,
the SPARC architecture build. In my defence, I did double check my original
download, though I have clearly made a mistake -- must be that 5pm symptom!

To confirm, I have now successfully downloaded and installed the Sun
Microsystems-contributed build for the SPARC platform:
 
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.7/contrib/mozilla-sparc-sun-solaris2.8_1.7.tar.bz2

and am happy for this bug to be closed.

Apologies! I'll aim to do better next time.

reporter: it's quite possible that they goofed (and fixed their goof after you
encountered the problem). but i don't have access to any server logs or energy
to chase them (or even figure out who they are today).

it's ok, and i certainly wasn't judging you.
