Re: seamonkey update in FC5 is broken?

I had been using seamonkey from extras.  I think seamonkey got

transition for those still using mozilla was more important than for
those who had been using seamonkey all along.

Ok, that makes sense even if it was a big nuisance for me as a SM user.

In addition to the other problems, when my installed seamonkey package was updated, it failed to take into account the fact that the previous "seamonkey" package included the whole suite, so it did not install all the packages needed for equivalent functionality (like mail!).

Also, the /usr/bin/mozilla script works, but coughs up these errors:

$ mozilla
grep: error while loading shared libraries: libc.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory cut: error while loading shared libraries: libc.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory sed: error while loading shared libraries: libc.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Why? I don't know.

It was just a matter of copying them all from the old location to the
new, so it wasn't too painful .

Since forever I've installed the plugins in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, which is checked and used by every mozilla version, FF, and seamonkey as well. The updated SM picked up all my plugins from there as well.
