Firefox 8

Firefox 8 is much more smooth and stable than Firefox 3.x/4.x on my eeepc. Lucky that it only requires GTK 2.10 (same as Firefox 3.x/4.x), the library is not available in apt repo, need to install it manually.

Google and download libgtk2.0-0_2.10.13-2~bpo.1_i386.deb, install/extract the deb file. Then create a shell

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/path_to_gtk2-10/usr/lib"
/path_to_firefox-8.0/firefox 2>&1

Free /dev/sda1

Install dpigs to check which package occupy the most space:

$ apt-get install debian-goodies <br/>
$ dpigs
