Safe? Probably, I've used the 1.6 sdk with mozilla 1.5... It is not like it
going to erase your hd. It is mainly for headers and such and library's. Try
it... if it crashes you know you need a different SDK. I know the 1.5 SDK

1. No, you are making it MUCH more difficult than it is.
2. It is not an RPM or DEB. You just extract it in your home dir... The
instructions on the webpage state this.
3. The mplayerplug-in webpage has a URL to download the gecko-sdk. Please read
do these commands make sure the wget and the url are on the same line.
tar -xzvf gecko-sdk-i686-pc-linux-gnu-1.6.tar.gz
tar -xzvf mplayerplug-in-2.11.tar.gz
