Hi Biltoo,

I compiled and made a pet of Seamonkey 2.6
EDIT:Works fine in ... Slacko ...too.

Many Thanks for this later version !
In Slacko 5.3.1:
Once installed got a new Menu entry «Seamonkey-2.6 Web Browser» below the already existing one «Seamonkey web browser».
SM-2.6 has to be started from Menu/Internet.
Seamonkey-2.6 is installed in /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.6 leaving the already existing /usr/lib/seamonkey undeleted and still activable as defaultbrowser.
Doing:
- deleting the existing /usr/lib/seamonkey (or renaming it for instance /usr/lib/OLDseamonkey if wanted keeping it...)
- renaming the new /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.6 to /usr/lib/seamonkey;
allows to get it running as defaultbrowser.

Works fine as also the SM-mails !

Cheers!
Happy New Year to all Puppylovers!
Charlie

Subject description: feedback on Jemimah's recent updated browser
 

this is feedback / input from my own experience with the new midori browser...

overall, it is significantly improved and very stable /usable for browsing the internet...

it crashed a couple of times while i was tweaking my toolbar...

also, it crashed a couple of times while i was using the menu button at the top, far right of page... you get this menu button when you right click the the tool bar and turn the tool bar off...

in addition, i cannot open the main lupu / lucid / slacko / wary "ibiblio" websites (re:from the puppylinux.com page), but i can open the alternative sites listed below the main sites, however, when the alternative sites open, i cannot download the .pets...

anyway, other than the above mentioned issues, midori 0.4.3 works just fine and i am using it as my primary browser... it has never crashed on me while just browsing the internet...

thanks, Jemimah !!!

The newer midori with the older webkit seems alright to me - certainly superior to just having dillo.

Once I get to building apps I think I will build around midori/gstreamer/gnutls. I think this is the future even though it's a bit rough around the edges now.

PostPosted: Thu 29 Dec 2011, 16:30    Post subject: No video on SIS graphics
Subject description: Saluki 004
 

just FYI...

Tried Saluki 004 from CD. Did not get any video, had audio though (bark, and goodbye at powerdown.
Rebooted several times with pfix=nox and tried manual XORG and VESA settings. Anything other than 640x480 failed.
I guess the SIS drivers are not in this kernel. I never tried Racy on this PC, but Wary runs fine, as does lucid 525/528.

This PC may be too old for Saluki anyway. Don't get distracted by this report, and make Saluki into a marvelous product for newer PC's.


P.S. on 640x480 recognized puppeee touches.....

Not sure what module is possibly missing but this is what I find:
Code:
# find /lib/modules -name sis.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.39-ski/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/sis/sis.ko


and...
Code:
# find /lib/modules -name "sis*"
/lib/modules/2.6.39-ski/kernel/drivers/char/agp/sis-agp.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.39-ski/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/sis

I am kinda working on a side project that will run the boot process in X (X will start in <1s, so its not that a big deal to push the init process into it) ... hopefully it can work with Saluki - I already tested against its kernel
I did have a couple of questions about the default Xvesa settings
1. for older 586+ PCs and newer tablets/netbooks is 800x600 supported universally?
2. does defaulting to 16bit color mess with any newer boxes?
Note: this is just for a bootstrap X, the user can either stay in it, if they need lower resource usage (<3Mb) or run the Xorg wizard after "init" is finished

Quick live pfix=ram test run of 004.Booted to a working desktop with sound....had to run through xorgwizard to get the correct 1440x900 resolution and the Network Wizard to get connected .Using Opera 11.60 to post this because I had it handy.

New Midori is working well so far in some light testing.

GMA500 video and xvesa don't play nice at all but it might be ok for just booting - not that GMA500 plays nice with anything. Wink

The highest rez on a 7inch eee is 800x480 - but I think the saluki kernel/xorg is too new for the old eees anyway.

I'm definitely interested in testing this out.

Well damn, 640x480 makes it difficult to do much. I have been testing with the 2.6.32.50 kernel and have Xvesa+jwm+rxvt loading up in ~1s and only using ~3mb of RAM with them all running... Or with a basic set of gtk tools for another 1mb or so (uses <12mb RAM with dillo,mp,rox,mtpaint&xdialog all running). With the gtk1 apps, more config options are available VIA xdialog, but if you prefer the smaller x only version, I can hack a basic configure setup using jwm menus (yes it sounds odd, but try jwm_install_menu_create from my jwm tools to get an idea what jwm _can_ do). One extra advantage to using gtk1 would be its utility on older boxes (in which case, I am probably already using the appropriate kernel)... Just copy them over before switchroot if RAM <64mb

I've adjusted various scripts to make Puppy mount drives by label (if there is one) instead of device name. This is rather handy because each drive will always get the same mount point and it's easier to tell which drive is which.

Let me know if I've broken anything.

Test this pet on a save file you don't care about since uninstalling it will break things.

After installing the pet, run Puppy Event Manager and check the box that tells it to redraw the icons. Then restart x.

I've also attached the patches in case someone wants to implement this on a system that is not a recent woof build.
