Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Gael Duval, creator of Mandrake Linux (now Mandriva Linux), has been fired from the company. The information leaked on the Mandriva forums, and Duval later confirmed it on his own webpage. He says: "Since the information has leaked, I will post a message in the next few days on this website about why this is the end of the Mandriva story for me, and what's next." Since Mandrake was for many the first distribution they ever tried, I think it is only fair to thank him for creating Mandrake, and to wish him the best of luck in any following endeavours.

Google easy urpmi and you won't have to do much compiling at all.

And compiling firefox isn't exactly simple, so I am not surprised it failed. But anyway, why would you compile when you could have just downloaded it straight from mozilla.com?
