Q: How do I install Firefox on my Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 machine?


Firefox is installed by default with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. If you removed it or chose not to include it with a custom install, you can install it now as follows:

  1. If you are not already using Red Hat Network to get operating system, security, and application updates for your Red Hat Enterprise Linux workstation, register now and follow the instructions provided. Red Hat Network service is free to MIT community members.
  2. As root, enter the following command:
    prompt> yum install firefox
    Result: Firefox is installed or updated on your workstation as needed. If the most current version of Firefox is already installed, it will inform you that there is 'Nothing to do'.
