Re: Replace mozilla with SeaMonkey?

Yes, I already worked in my spare time on producing SeaMonkey RPM packages.
I selected a combination of patches from the set currently used in Firefox, Thunderbird and Mozilla RPM packages.
I made it so that Mozilla and SeaMonkey can be installed at the same time.

Would they use the same profile as Netscape 7 does? The query is mainly due to email accounts, bookmarks are rather large. I don't think needing to import all this information into another profile would be desirable. The different directories for Thunderbird and for mozilla are one feature that I do not care for.

I would like to wait with publishing the package until Chris had a chance to review spec file and patches.
I'll post to the list once we're done.
Also note, this will be my first package for Extras, so it might take me a bit longer to get it included there.

Looking forward to the rpms being available in Extras. Either location is fine with me. Since Seamonkey is a suite instead of seperate applications, I would appreciate its inclusion somewhere.

For FC 5, we think Mozilla 1.7.x should still be included.
That seems reasonable as other packages might depend on Mozilla (?), and the GRE it provides (see /etc/gre.conf). I don't know whether SeaMonkey 1.0 can be used as a compatible drop-in replacement for that. It's probably not a good idea to remove Mozilla that late in the FC 5 release process.

I agree.

After FC 5, we might either remove Mozilla 1.7.x from Core, or move it over to Extras. But if Extras contains SeaMonkey, there might no longer be a need to provide Mozilla 1.7.x, too.

Seamonkey maintenence sounds sufficient. I just like the composer for dealing with html docs in windows and Linux. I could do with just a drop in replacement that is being maintained.

Helllo all,

With the release of the SeaMonkey 1.0, shouldn't Fedora replace the
aging mozilla-1.7.x package (.12 in both rawhide and FC5T2) with the new
SeaMonkey package?

I downloaded the non-rpm version and will try out the package.

The eventual goal is to drop the mozilla based browsers from Core and move them to Extras, so SeaMonkey should do that now. I think Kai Engert has an SRPM lying around somewhere.


Where do you want Bill Gates to go today?
