Two, the current versions of gecko and gnome-mplayer still need some work before they work properly in FF4/Chrome 11.  I might switch to SVN in the meantime.  My current slackBuild is still tracking to the latest release.  I haven't had time to check on this in the last couple of weeks, however.

Thanks, Phillip.

I have gnome-mpalyer-1.04b2 running after the above schema fix (silly 
me, forgot...) and also after installing seamonkey from 13.1 it seems 
gecko-mediaplayer-1.04.b2 runs....at least in the trailers I tested so 
far in FF4.  It still has the same glitch on comcast.net voicemail audio 
from 13.1 and FF3.

It seems the new seamonkey header files reference a ferw mozilla/*.h 
files that don't exist.  These references don't exist in the Slack13.1 
version of seamonkey.
