If you install the "yelp" package do things start working for you?
Yelp made the menu's work again, however it uses firefox 1.5 as a dependent. I
have been using 18.104.22.168, is there a work around or do I need 1.5?
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.
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.)
