Looks good so far Todd. Good for someone like me who rarely uses anything but the web browser - keeps it simple.

ps, It seems more stable than Firefox. I gave up Firefox in favour of Seamonkey a while ago because it kept crashing. I've simply copied the entire IceWeazel folder from Icepup into my FAT documents partition and I'm running it in my regular Puppy. It hasn't crashed even with 25 tabs and a full load of extensions, so I think I can say I'm a convert. Congratulations to Debian for a job well done...

I didn't. There are actually two different lines. One is Iceweasel, which is the Debian one. The other is IceWeasel, which is Gnuzilla's. It seems a bit odd, but there really are two. The capitalization of the "W" is the only naming difference. However, when you get into the different packages, they are built very differently. The one I used is found here:

http://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/

Sincerely,

Todd

yes thats the one I compiled it uses a file called mozcfg to pass
info to ./configure as I'm understanding
src http://gnuzilla.gnu.org/download/iceweasel-2.0.0.6-g2.tar.bz2

I just used the one that had already been compiled:

http://gnuzilla.gnu.org/download/iceweasel-2.0.0.6-g2-i386.tar.bz2

I might be setting myself up for criticism, but. . .

The way I understand it, Slackware is the vanilla of Linux distributions. (No frills, just a basic Unix.) Though Puppy was built using T2, packages built for vanilla distributions like Slackware tend to work well on Puppy. The above package seemed to be compiled on one of the "vanilla" distributions and has run well on Puppy. I added glibc-2.4 (which originally was a Mandriva package) to Icepup. I assumed that it wrote over the original glibc-2.3 library files that came with Puppy 2.13.

I know I have assumed a lot. . .but it works!

Sincerely,

Todd

P.S.: I brought up Slackware because it is the distribution that I have worked with. (I actually used Caldera prior to Slackware but. . .that's another story.)

no criticism it's just I'm a freak I guess... I mean one of the
advantages of iceweasle is supposed to be more secure to
me secure means you download src from author's site
and compile yourself Evil or Very Mad Rolling Eyes

I think that iPup is based on the 2.6.16.7 kernel, and no one has compiled winmodem drivers for this kernel ...
but if you are talking about your Thinkpad TP770X, you're in luck, because the necessary "mwave" kernel module is standard with Puppy.
Then you just need the user-level application from here -
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Internet/Winmodem-drivers-for-Puppy-2.00-and-2.01/Mwave-2.0-ACP-modem.pup
and the instructions -

I am interested in a small pup with Icewm for wifi internet surfing. Does Icepup 0.3 have a wlan setup wizard? Hope so.

Icepup only comes with wired lan support. This is because wired lans are simple. For wirless, you not only need the right driver for your card but you also need an additional program to handle the signal. Ethernet cards have pretty much standardized themselves, but wireless cards are continuously morfing. Right now they just came out with the "N" standard. My card is "G". My thinking was for Icepup to be used for an internet cafe or some educational or library setting where computers are wired together with a low cost hub. At least where I live this hub would then be connected to a cable or DSL modem.

Sincerely,

Todd Richardson

Thanks for the fast response.

At this point I am just running dial-up at home and wifi if I can find hotspots (only a couple I know about). IceWeasel sounds interesting tho I have had good success with FireFox, so I have downloaded Icepup 0.3 and will give him a romp.
