Thunderbird 2.0 – Fedora Core 6

So, I recently installed Thunderbird 2.0 on my Fedora Core 6 box. Here is what I did to get it working:

# yum --enablerepo=development list thunderbird
. . . snip . . .
Available Packages
thunderbird.i386 2.0.0.0-1.fc7 development

# yum -y --enablerepo=development update thunderbird
. . . snip . . .
Updated: thunderbird.i386 0:2.0.0.0-1.fc7
Complete!

The great thing is Thunderbird 2.0 comes with some really cool features which I have completely enjoyed:

  • Save searches as folders
  • Type as you go search in the message body
  • GMail and .mac accounts in two clicks
  • Custom message tags

This is also fun to write as a comparison to the Thunderbird installation on Ubuntu.  I thought you’d like to hear the experience from another side.

Cheers,

Herlo

  1. I should mention that I am using that manual installation method as a temporary solution until it comes down the repo pipe..

    Yeah! This is what I am looking for. I´ve spent hours trying to get the Thunderbird (downloaded from Mozilla.com) running without any luck. Thanks in advance. Thank you, again. Cheers!
