Why are you rebuilding firefox when we already provide pre build
binaries is my first question?
I am looking for a firefox tarball and not a rpm. We have one activity that
requires the firefox folder ( folder we get when extracting
firefox.x.x.tar.gz) to be placed somewhere within that activity folder
structures. Installing rpm will directly copy files to respective
locations within the system which doesn't do my job.
Please do point me to such bundle if it can be found.
Ultimately we use physical HW for all the builds (quad core 1.4 ghz,
4gb of RAM) as the virtualised HW is slow as you can well see.
Something like the Wandboard quad which has 2Gb of RAM and a real Sata
port for $129 would provide a big improvement.
Thank you very much for this piece of information.
