gettext-0.10.40 or gettext-0.10.39 for AIX 4.3.3
xft-2.1.10, xft-2.1.6 works at runtime
For AIX 4.3.3 you can use my bundled runtime RPMS and development RPMS. Those RPMs you don't find in the bundles are from IBM's AIX Toolbox.
For AIX 5.1 or later you can use the RPMS from www.perzl.org/aix or use the latest RPMS for AIX 5.1 from IBM's AIX Toolbox plus the updates I provide here. Additionally you'll need atk, pango, glib2 and gtk2 RPMS from Groupe Bull Freeware for AIX. This RPMS provide 32 and 64bit runtime compatibility.
If you are on AIX 5.2 or later you can use the latest RPMS provided by IBM with Firefox 3.0.7 for AIX 5.3. Attention: some revisions are missing 32bit compatibility, fixed packages are dated later than Dec 11 2009.
Firefox 3 for AIX 4.3.3 is compiled on AIX 4.3.3 ML11 with IBM VisualAge C++ 6.0 with Fixpack April 2007.
Firefox 3 for AIX 5L is compiled on AIX 5.1 ML9 with IBM XLC/C++ 7.0 with July 2007 Fixpack.
The minimum version for the xlC.aix43.rte C++ shared lib is 188.8.131.52. This is the final version for AIX 4.3.
The minimum version for the xlC.aix50.rte C++ shared lib is 184.108.40.206. Using any later version is o.k.
You'll also need the Unicode TrueType Fonts installed in your X Server's fontpath.
and the URW Fonts from AIX Toolbox
If your font rendering in Firefox seems broken or missing blank spaces follow the instructions on Michael Perzl's gkt2 download page.
