Aah, sorry, I should have formuled my question better. The gecko-lib dependency
is firefox, in Fedora 9 xulrunner. It's needed for js. Firefox in RHEL 5.1
should provide also gecko Provides, in RHEL 5.2 and Fedora 9 it is xulrunner
that provides this (though with different version). Therefore I asked, which
firefox do you have. Better would be asking, which firefox, or xulrunner, is
available in your repos.

Comment 4 Andrea 2008-07-16 22:04:32 UTC
No problem. Do you mean that package gecko-libs should be in Scientific Linux's base 

As to Firefox and Xulrunner versions, I'll paste output from yum query:

~# yum info firefox xulrunner

Thanks for the info. The problem was indeed in the new firefox. I've just
rebuild the gxine for the new xulrunner based gecko installation. It should be
pushed to the repos, hopefully, in less than a week.

Comment 6 Andrea 2008-07-17 00:06:23 UTC
That's great, thank you very much Martin.

Comment 7 Andrea 2008-08-01 08:00:50 UTC
Still no luck with this...

Comment 8 Martin Sourada 2008-08-01 08:12:50 UTC
It's in updates testing and today it's been pushed to stable updates:

After your mirrors sync with the master repo, you should be able to update.

Comment 9 Andrea 2008-08-01 08:26:05 UTC
