This is perhaps a memory problem, and perhaps also the wrong place to post.

I am using xenialpup64 7.5 in a Thinkpad T61 as follows:

-Computer-
Processor : 2x Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T9500 @ 2.60GHz
Memory : 3980MB (494MB used)
Machine Type : Physical machine
Operating System : Puppy Linux
User Name : root (root)
Date/Time : Sat Feb 9 08:05:26 2019
-Display-
Resolution : 1680x1050 pixels
OpenGL Renderer : Gallium 0.4 on NV86
X11 Vendor : The X.Org Foundation
-Audio Devices-
Audio Adapter : HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
Audio Adapter : PC-Speaker - pcsp
-Input Devices-
Lid Switch
Sleep Button
Power Button
Video Bus
AT Translated Set 2 keyboard
SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad
TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint
ThinkPad Extra Buttons
HDA Intel Mic
HDA Intel Dock Mic
HDA Intel Headphone
PC Speaker
-Printers (CUPS)-
CUPS-PDF : <i>Default</i>
-SCSI Disks-
ATA Samsung SSD 860
MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-852

Every time I go into street view in Google Maps the system first seizes up and then a few seconds later crashes.

I assume I am running out of memory. Short of getting more, is there anything to be done?

Thanks

4 GB of RAM should be more than enough for Google Maps' Street View. You'll need to do more testing to get to the bottom of this problem.

How is Xenial installed, frugal or full?
Does the computer have a version of windows, which version?


Which version of streetview? (version number)
Where did you get it (downloaded from?)
How did you install it? (is it a sfs, pet, deb?) PPM install?

Did this version of streetview ever run correctly or has it always crashed?

Google maps in 'street-view' is a Google-Earth type of thing. VERY resource intensive. Its not the ram as much as CPU/video.

FWIW Slacko5.7 and a netbook gives limited use... it clogs up after a bit of use.

Network Speed: 768 Kbits/sec or greater.
Got that for Internet connection speed?

Sorry for the late reply. I have been nursing a nasty cold.

I have an up to date frugal install, and I was using street view in Google Maps within a recent install of Firefox.

Puppy is the only OS on the machine.

I don't use Street View a lot, but I have never had it crash a computer before. There again, I have never used it within Firefox before.

The 61P is relatively new (to me), but this is the first problem I have encountered while using it. The drive is a new Samsung Evo, and there is plenty of room on the "disk".

Internet speed is as much as I can get (fibre-optic), though there have been a few service interruptions recently. Don't know why or whether that could cause a crash though.

The BIOS is the famous Middleton, which allows me to use a faster chip. The machine is used almost purely for web browsing and email. Both fans work well and the machine never overheats.

xenialpup64 7.5 has Pale Moon browser.

Try using it to run Google Map.

This could just be a buggy Firefox version.

Good idea. I shall see if I get the same result in other browsers.
