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!).

I got all of the other packages.


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.

Yea, same errors here, so its not just you.

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.

In my experience that has never worked consistantly.  Sometimes the
plugins seem to work from /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, and other times
they do not.
