I am now running Firefox v2.0.0.18 (x86_64). I tried to use YaST to

shows me. The repository that I have been given is:
<http://downloads.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE_10.3/ia64>.

x86_64 is for AMD 64 and recent Intel CPUs.

ia64 is _not_ x86_64 it is Itanium from Intel.

Cf. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86_64 versus
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itanium


downloads.opensuse.org doesn't exist in DNS. The host name is
download.opensuse.org. Also /repositories/openSUSE_10.3/ia64 isn't
valid.


http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_10.3/ might
be the repository you like to add.

http://software.opensuse.org/search in general is very useful to find
repositories.
