Gears 0.5.33

Gears tried to update itself automatically, but stopped with an error telling, it is not compatible with my system, all the time. My workaround: uninstall, and install it manually failed. I was not able to install it again.

The file install.rdf within the actual .xpi file shows:

<!-- Prevent this XPI from being installed on the wrong platform. -->
<em:targetPlatform>Linux_x86_64-gcc3</em:targetPlatform>

The problem is, google packed the 64-bit version instead the 32-bit version, which will not run on a 32-bit System.

To get gears running again I had to install an older, correct packaged version. Gears version 0.5.32 can be downloaded here:

    1. Für dieses Blog. Ohne Gears mit GPRS Artikel zu verfassen ist nicht wirklich. Der Editor wird dann nicht einmal geladen.
