Mick has gone to bed....you just need to navigate to the 5.3.2.4 directory...the 5.3.2.4 iso is working great here.

Thanks, downloading now. Not sure why there's a 5.3.2.40 ISO as well, went for the one with 5.3.2.4 in.

Yes I saw that 40 too so I took him both but only tested the .4
and it works well. Could the 40 be the PAE thing. For very modern computers with 4GB RAM and such?

Mick,
what's the trick with 5.3.2.3 and flash? Just falls back to gecko media player? Gnash? Other?
I ask because on the XO-1 is almost in par with the original flash (eg non-watchable..) but on the XO-1.5 is visibly worse than flash Confused
Back on the flash-9 time, similar(?) hacks on the XO-1 where considerably better than flash.

Thanks guys, link to rc2 in main post is fixed.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


mavrothal: It is pure html5, I didn't do anything. Maybe try chromium browser? On fastish machines it is better on resources than flash, my lappy in particular would get very hot with a 3 minute flash video. I notice though that chromium doesn't do the fullscreen. Seamonkey (and I presume a late model firefox) does close to fullscreen if you hit f11.

Html 5 is still in it's infancy. That said, I haven't updated some of the libs since October last year, and ffmpeg, nor do I intend to for now. Bear in mind I compile Seamonkey against those libs and mesa. Did you use mesa?

As html5 matures I'm sure it will become more efficient.

I may as well attach my Seamonkey build script.
seamonkey_build-01.tar.gz
Description  download seamonkey source to a dir outside
your save. extract this tarball in tha same dir
run "./build" and wait an hour or so.

For all the wobblers out there (re compiz)....

Confirmed working with nouveau driver. Of course mesa must be installed, see slickpet or PPM.

You are warned that it is blacklisted, it seems safe to ignore the warning if you get a decent glxgears result [ >= 1500 f/5s (arbitrary number)] and nouveau works fine for you.

Remember.. install the compiz_helper-002.pet available in PPM first.Then select compiz from the slickpet sfs tab, get's loaded with sfs_load, then drop to a prompt and type "xwin dummy".. [dummy is for dummy WM!].

Happy wobbling wobblers!

Hi 01micko,

5.3.2.4 tested with frugal upgrades to both HD and then Flash Stick for about 4 hours in total. Tests were problem free.

My regards

Hi Mick,

Frugal installation of PAE version on ext4 partition with 4fs save created with shinobar's pupsaveconfig. Used your nouveau_unload and successfully installed the latest NVIDIA driver. Everything tested is working great.

Cheers,
Jim

Sorry to brag about how dense I am Smile
Are we suppose to use .4 or .40 and what is the difference between them?

Yet another fresh manual frugal install of 5.3.2.4 on the Athlon XP box. No problems.
Installed an Opera sfs and the Nvidia driver ... all looking good.

Though this was done using Microsoft, I just found out that PAE ourtuns non-PAE in MS VMs while reading and writing several testcase files of varying sizes.. Also, the "Hardinfo -r" (from a terminal window) also offers reports which validate my findings. This is on VM clients that are configured with 1GB RAM and Single-core processors.This compares to what was found when the community began discovery of PAE last spring-summer.

IFF SLACKO is for 2006+ PCs (everything I have tested thus far runs on PAE versions done by JamesBond, Pemasu, Smokey01, PupyLuver, BarryK, and 01Micko) then we may want to "standardize" on a single version for future development as it pertains to 2006+ PCs. This would have the benefit of freeing 01MIcko up slightly to focus of many of the behind the scenes things he does for all of us.

The performance in this SLACKO continues to be outstanding on all of my PC tests with PCs ranging from 1GB to 6GB on P4s, I7s, and X2s. All of these were also tested using his latest SAMBA. These tests were done with using SLACKO-SAMBA file sharing reading and writing to LAN PCs while also having file transfers simultaneously occurring in SLACKO-SeaMonkey.

Thank you for the progress of this contribution to this community.
