SPAM: find and install Thunderbird

Doug McGarrett
Hi, all--

I have looked in YAST, and I cannot find Mozilla Thunderbird.
This is SuSE 9.3.  How do I find it and install it?  Must I try in
root, or what?  There seem to be a lot of other things, but not
that.

Thanx--doug

For 9.3 it wasn't included.  You need to go the the mozilla WEB site and
download the tar ball and install it I would think.  Then create an icon if
you like on your desktop.

Another way is to install 10.1 or wait for 10.2 as they both have it
included as an RPM.

There's no need to specifically download Thunderbird from either Mozilla
or a Suse archive. If you have YaST's installation source set to a Suse
9.3 mirror, then Thunderbird appears in the list of installable
software. It's a very old version (1.0.5) but once you've got YaST to
install it, you can go directly to YOU where you will find an update to
the latest version has magically appeared.

HTH, Dave
