Subject: [gentoo-user] Firefox downgrade?
Date: Mon, 19 May 2008 23:02:18
1 I've just upgraded to firefox 3rc1. I put the necessary in
2 /etc/portage/package.* but it didn't appear when doing an update world.
3 So I did an 'emerge -av mozilla-firefox'. This worked and you can see is
4 still working:
5 baldrick ~ # emerge -av mozilla-firefox
7 These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
9 Calculating dependencies... done!

18 Total: 1 package (1 reinstall), Size of downloads: 0 kB
20 Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No]
22 However an update world tries to downgrade to firefox 2:
23 baldrick ~ # emerge --ask --verbose --update --deep --newuse --tree world
