PostPosted: Sat 20 Aug 2011, 16:20    Post subject: Seamonkey Bug  

I can confirm majorfoo's Seamonkey 2.3 bug. I've only tested in 529. If you clear cookies, via Clear Private Data, you are locked out of Seamonkey once you leave it. Rebooting restores the access. It occurs if you set Edit->Preferences->Privacy and Security to always clear private data and tick cookies. The bug also occurs if you use Tools->Clear private data and tick cookies. (I probably did not actually have any cookies in the system when I did this testing.)

What is really strange is that this only happens in lucid series.I have tried 525,528 and 529. Problem exists in all three.

If i go to slacko-4.99.1 or next 500 alpha2, problem does not exist.
Posting now from next 500 alpha2, installed seamonkey-2.2-Lucid525.pet, then updated to seamonkey 2.3. No problems here

I'm running SeaMonkey 2.3 on 525,528,529 and Lucid Retro (in 529 at the moment)....all set up to clear private data and cookies on exit....and I haven't seen this problem yet.

Everything appears to be working pretty well,nothing really to complain about.Naturally, SeaMonkey will start acting up now probably....... Laughing

DId you check ALL boxes in Privacy&Security - Note your screen shot on another post did not have all boxes checked. Once all boxes are checked, close browser and then reopen- Sometimes it opens on first try but not on second. Open and close a few times and see if you can create the problem.

thanks

I'll confirm that with all boxes checked when SeaMonkey 2.3 is closed there is a process or processes continuing to run in the background preventing SeaMonkey from reopening.
Unchecking boxes did not help,had to do a browser reinstall.

Apparently Three-Headed-Dog already contains the new ath9k_htc wifi driver, thanks to its modern kernel version,
but I don't think it contains the necessary firmware that this new wifi driver requires.

I now attach the firmware, plus updated configuration files so that the Network Wizard will recognise the ath9k_htc driver as compatible with WPA/WPA2 wifi encryption.
Plug in your USB wifi device only AFTER you have installed this dotpet. Otherwise, you will need a reboot.

These are the USB wifi devices which should (in theory) be supported by the ath9k_htc driver:

0cf3:7010 Atheros generic
0cf3:7015 TP-Link TL-WN821Nv3
0cf3:9271 TP-Link TL-WN721N/WN722N & Unex DNUA-93F
0cf3:1006 TP-Link TL-WN322G v3/TL-WN422G v2
0cf3:b003 Ubiquiti WifiStation Ext
0846:9030 Netgear WNA1100
0846:9018 Netgear WNDA3200
07D1:3A10 Dlink Wireless 150
083A:A704 SMC Networks
13D3:3327 Azurewave
13D3:3328 Azurewave
13D3:3346 IMC Networks
13D3:3348 Azurewave
13D3:3349 Azurewave
13D3:3350 Azurewave
04CA:4605 Liteon

I can confirm that this worked - my TP-Link TL-WN821Nv3 USB dongle is now detected using the ath9k_htc driver after applying the firmware .pet

See also this post: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=555473#555473

I just had to OK some message about Puppy not knowing whether WPA/WPA2 was supported by the USB driver (or something along those lines). After that I plugged in the USB dongle again and there it was on the network interface list!

Thanks Tempestuous Smile and thanks Playdayz for releasing this, at long last (for me), fully functional and smooth-running Puppy!

Brown Mouse, majorfoo, and others,

This is experimental but it has been working for me. It does 2 things--first, it makes the newer chromium based browsers work without the pinwheel of death problem with loading, and second, it lets Seamonkey and other gecko based browsers work when installed along with the Chromium browsers.

1. First, please uninstall any Iron, Chromium, or Chrome pets.

2. Second, install this libgconf2-4_3.1.6 pet.
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/libgconf2-4_3.1.6.pet

3. Then install one or more of these Iron 13, Chromium 15 or Google Chrome 13 pets.

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/Iron-13-lucid528.pet
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/Chromium-15-Lucid.pet
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/Google_Chrome-13-Lucid.pet

Please use only these pets--definitely do not use the pets for Slacko.

Install the Seamonkey 2.3 Lucid pet if desired, or Firefox, etc. If they are already installed they should now work without re-installation (crossed fingers).

Please let me know, especially if you notice any side effects, since if this works out it will be included in the first Instant Update. Thanks.

Crazy Man! I hope to keep Three-Headed Dog as an ongoing Derivative--so maybe we can experiment to see which kernel works better, or if there are any advantages one way or the other.

I will be posting an EZ-Woof for Lucid 5.2.8, which will make it easy to try different kernels.

I can fix that, if you please run this command -
Code:
readlink /sys/class/net/wlan0/device/driver

The result will be in the form of
Code:
../../../bus/pci/drivers/xxx

but it's just the driver-name at the end that I need.
