Mozilla Thunderbird [solved]
« on: January 30, 2009, 09:05:29 am »

Using VL 5.9 Standard I am trying to install Thunderbird as e-mail client. When using gslapt package manager, selecting thunderbird from the list I get a message that thunderbird depends on alsa lib >= 1.0.17-i586. How do I solve this problem?

You can let gslapt upgrade alsa lib.
But I don't see why that should be needed for Thunderbird, so I guess you could just install it anyway without changing anything else in your system.

Thank you. I followed your advice and it seems to be working fine. Thunderbird is running and I have installed the lightning addon.
