My laptop is currently running fedora 6 (It's not technically mine, I got it from work so cannot
simply upgrade), and I use thunderbird to check my e-mails.
If I want to upgrade thunderbird past 220.127.116.11 I have to enable the development repository in yum which outputs the following:
$sudo yum --enablerepo=development update thunderbird

Is this ok [y/N]:
I am at a critical stage in my work, everything I need runs fine as it is so I don't want any chance of something going wrong.
Enough chat and onto my question: Are the other dependencies that will be installed, if I accept the upgrade, likely to "break" anything in my current installation?
My kernel is: 184.108.40.206-72.fc6
I really can't afford the time or annoyance of anything stopping working, so if anybody thinks it may cause a problem please say so. I've lived with it for six months, so a few more wont be too hard
Thanks in advance.
