If you install the "yelp" package do things start working for you?

Comment 3 Bill 2007-06-25 15:35:21 UTC
Yelp made the menu's work again, however it uses firefox 1.5 as a dependent.  I
have been using, is there a work around or do I need 1.5?

Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-06-25 20:45:34 UTC
Unfortunately, you don't have a lot of options.  Firefox 2.0 isn't supported in
RHEL 5.  I don't believe it is ABI compatible with firefox 1.5, so you would
need to rebuild yelp against your version of firefox.  The rebuilt yelp package
wouldn't be supported either, obviously.

Comment 5 Bill 2007-06-25 22:58:32 UTC
Thanks for the help.  I'll either rebuild or keep both browsers.  (Probably keep
both so my RHN support is affected if I need it.)
