Install Firefox 4 Beta 2 on Fedora 13

Mozilla just released Firefox j 4 Beta 2 with a cool set of features and I want to test it. I installed the first beta manually in my desktop pc running Fedora 13, but I was wondering if there is a better way. Fortunately, there is one: you can install Firefox 4 Beta 2 using Remi’s repo, here is how:

First you need to configure the repo, so you need to run the following snippet as root

rpm -Uvh

Then you can install the beta release of firefox using:

yum --enablerepo=remi install firefox4

You may need to anser ‘Yes’ to the question about if you want to import the GPG key for the repo. And… that’s all. now you can see for yourself what Firefox 4 Beta 2 can do.

Finally, this is not an update of the firefox package you probably already have installed, it only adds another entry to your Applications menu allowing you to run the new versión of Firefox.

You can see more information in Remi’s post and Remi’s repo configuration page.
