More on multiple Firefox packages on Solaris

After Alfred mentioned my blog entry on installing multiple versions of Firefox on Solaris using pkgadd instead of tar, I tested the package renaming script with Firefox 3.1b2 and found that I cannot extract the version number just from the pkginfo output. Instead, I had to use the VERSION line of the pkginfo -l output.

So I uploaded a changed version of the rename-firefox-pkg script (under its old name, as I only changed one line, and the script still works as before with older packages like Firefox 3.0.5 and Firefox 2.0.0.19).
