Is seamonkey available either as a source distribution (*.tar.gz)
or a binary that will build or run on freeBSD 4.11?
Since this address is "gnome at FreeBSD.org" is that an indication
that one must run gnome in order to use seamonkey?
I use a simple window manager (fvwm2 -- would be using fvwm but it
went away when I updated to 4.11) or so it appeared in the post-
install menus. Only found the original in the ports collection
after I'd gone to the trouble of redoing my configuration file.
I'm afraid that I don't like the elaborate (and accordingly
*large*) "environments" like gnome and kde.
So, is it possible to run seamonkey on freeBSD 4.11 (XF86 4.4.0)?
If not, can you suggest a good browser. I have opera which is
mostly OK and I have a version of mozilla which seems to work on
those sites where opera doesn't. The trouble with mozilla is that
I haven't figured out how to convince it to accept ^H (i.e.
control-H) as a synonym for the backspace key and a few similar
control-key alternatives that don't require that I either have
six-inch fingers or leave the home keys to delete a character and
such. I don't know how many times I've had to close that bloody
history windoe because my fingers have learnt in a quarter century
of using Unix that ^H *should* work as the character-erase
So -- what say ye?
