Thank you for the reply.
A shortcoming of USM, once Updated you have to exit USM and restart it for it to see the updates.
Shortcoming indeed. I realized a restart seemed to solve the problem, but thought I had some system corruption or something. Thank you for the clarification. Funny how 3 words could 'change the world'. After UPDATE ALL, the window says "you may now close this window". Seems a nice enhancement (for noobs at least) would be to add "and restart USM'. I will bring this up at the next board meeting.
On to more important things. Noob confusion w/ USM. 5 objectives.
- undo the first install of flash where I did not use USM
uninstall the USM install of flash player
install Firefox anew and update it as appropriate
USM install the correct flash player
The problem is interpreting USM. The options seem confusing.
From this I see 2 likely concerns re: FF .. the 2nd and third items .. a newer 486 version 40888K and an installed/downgradeable 486 version 23352K respectively but from different repositories. Oh, what to do, what to do?
From this, I see only one logical choice ... and it IS INSTALLED.
So, am trying to figure out how to get from here to the objectives. Logically, it would be to uninstall the installed flash player. Uninstall the installed FF. Install the correct FF. Install the correct Flash player. As for the misstep in installing the FP from outside USM ... I have no idea. Guess it could stay wherever it resides.
So, before blowing way the only installed Browser, thought I would check with you on what steps to take.
Thank you for your indulgence ... and I apologize for complicating something that is probably quite simple. I have lived my life doing that.
ps: why are my screenshots so small? I am using the very nice feature provided by Porteus whereby the shot is hosted @ ZimageZ. Is there a better way??
