trying to install firefox-5.0 from VL7-RC1 and it say missing glibc >= 2.28.7

Quote
firefox: Depends: glib2 >= 2.28.7

It seem glibc-2.28.6 is the only available package in the repo...

I think the pixman dependency would be resolved by making sure the extra repository is enabled.  If you can get the exact requirement then I could find out for sure.

Me too... ;D

BTW, forcing install when that is the only dependency issue is no problem (probably a minor bugfix), however, gslapt only gives warning on the first dependency failure for each package, so once you accept, you won't find out about all the rest... :o

Also, this firefox is failing to run for me with the following libpng error. I even upgraded to the slack-13.37 libpng-1.4.8 with no success:
Code: [Select]
joe1962:$ firefox 
/usr/lib/firefox-5.0/firefox-bin: relocation error: /usr/lib/firefox-5.0/libxul.so: symbol png_get_first_frame_is_hidden, version PNG14_0 not defined in file libpng14.so.14 with link time reference
