Yep - discovering several older machines here that won't load SM as well as other stuff. Wary seems to need quite a lot of work as BK intimated.

Of course I'm assuming that you are using a wired network. Wink Wireless usually identifies as wlan0 and you need to scan for networks and select the one you want before you can set it up. How do you connect in other operating systems?


Usually I don't have such problem while setting up LAN in wired environment.. I was using Puppy Linux for the past several years. I hope, this may be due to beta release.Even wired setup, eth0 has to be displayed. In this case, not showing. It may restored while next release.

Not unless you provide some information to help fix it.

1. Run "lspci -nn". Is your Ethernet adapter listed? What are the [vendor:product] ID codes for it?

2. Run "lspci -k". Does it list a kernel module for your adapter?

Sub_title: racy 5.3.90 test
 

1st look.. racy 5.3.90

fresh boot gives direct-to-desktop okay/useable but cramped 800x600, quickset only took input from my 'secondary' cordless mouse rather than my usual ps/2. Same old pmount tabview mixup - optical in 2nd floppy tab, thumbdrive in optical tab (this gives a not-so-good first impression for anyone using pmount with the default tabview). SeaMonkey 2.12.1 loads ok (from both desktop browse icon and menu). Here's the 'given' vid setup from..

To be fair to BK, I'd imagine that he himself no longer has a sub-i686 machine and is therefore reliant on those of us who still do so to report on things that fall over. James C's trusty PIII 730 (ish), classed as an i686 CPU, only started to show problems after a reasonably recent flash update.

Which were the other programs you were having problems with? As mentioned previously, the current problems with SeaMonkey aren't an incentive for me to carry 'Zhaan' to the other side of the house to connect to the internet.

Jades, what about Opera?

It's labeled 'i386'. I'm fast turning off of anything mozilla lately. Perhaps try terryphi's sfs in the browser section.

I'm trialling in Slacko. It's near half the size of seamonkey, flash is working however I'm yet to trial it standalone. I'm thinking a lot of stuff is compiled against the seamonkey netscape libs (nss, nspr) for ssl and the like. There has also been reported printing issues with things such as airline and movie tickets.

I've used those SFS files on Merlin, the Pentium D machine, for a while to great success. They're ideal for the way I use Puppy on that machine where everything's done with LiveCD and Pupsaves. Just make sure that the SFS is loaded, sync with Opera Link and away you go. The one Opera SFS can be used with any number of Puppy CDs and any number of save files.

Subject, of course, to the app actually managing to load on your computer. For some reason, I can't get recent Opera SFS files to run on on Zhaan, the K6-2 500 system. I have a frustrating lack of any information other than it is not running. Sad SeaMonkey does at least give me enough to suggest a probable cause based on prior experience on that machine.

One of the odd things about my, admittedly brief relative to others here, time testing Puppy is that I've used Opera a lot on it and that preference spread to my XP setup too. I had prior experience of it quite some time ago, including the EPOC version I used to use on my Psion Revo Plus, but decided that since I was using a new OS (Puppy) anyway I might as well give it another shot. I really like it.

In general, my requirements for browser performance may not be as high as others. I still use RISC OS as a day-to-day OS and on that NetSurf is very much my first choice. On PCs, I've used Opera a lot in the last two years. It's a damned good browser. I eventually reinstalled Firefox after replacing this PC's hard drive and rebuilding the XP install, but that was largely because I was sick of my brother complaining that one of his Facebook games didn't work as well.

I grew up with Mozilla. First used the internet at university in 1996 and the choice was between NSCA Mosaic and Netscape 2. I was Netscape all the way back then, right up to Netscape 6 (IIRC). I do quite like SeaMonkey, and its old-school everything-Internet-integrated approach does have a certain retro charm, but my preferences evolved into having specific packages for specific jobs a long time ago.

If I had to pick only one thing that has really annoyed me about Firefox over the last few years, it's the massive increase in version number for very little obvious improvement.

Given that Slackware 14.0 itself has only just been released, it's worth taking the time to trial Opera as Slacko's default browser during the testing phase if that's what you want to try. In general I find it an excellent day-to-day browser, but there aren't as many plug-ins as there are even on SeaMonkey. That's really a thing for another thread though. Wink

Ah yes, Opera. BK is determined to avoid it. Seem to remember persuading him to contact those nice Norwegians a couple of centuries ago, but don't think he followed up on discussing with them some function he wanted but was missing at that time. I've been using Opera since the days when payment was required. More stable, more reliable, faster and a wonderful bunch of developers willing to answer my stupid questions and try to accede to the most demanding requirements. Then there was FlashPlayer and the idiot politicians who forced Auntie to flush our precious £££ down the Yankie drain labelled M$. They tell us they are working on HTML5 for iPlayer, but things move glacially at the Beeb. So the big question is which FP for what browser. SM in Wary requires 10.3.xx which isn't in BK's PPM list at present. Different Operas require different FP's. Goodness knows which FP other browsers need. Even Chromium, alleged to include FP, actually doesn't. One is supposed to enable it via <about:plugins >, but all the ones I've tried refer back to a download from the Adobe website, after which either they don't load or don't work.
Pre-i686: yes, I had to visit the loft and garage a few weeks ago to resurrect some really old boards; positively my last K6-II came within a gnats of being permanently recycled at the tip. During that foray, also discovered some useful Solteks and a QDI Legend which I've offered to Mick (and awaiting his decision, mick!).

Sub_title: further
 

..my desktop's only a 12 yr old (positively young in comparison to some)

racy 5.3.90

Did a 'swap disc' upgrade from my previous racy 5.3 multisession disc onto the clean 5390 multisession disc. A fair amount of cleanup and settling in - some things went strange but given the updating procedure as it is it only took a bit of hunting and a couple reboot/saves to get comfy (with a perhaps superfluous-by-now script in /etc/init.d since my personal .xinitrc is somewhat different than the given default). Was quite odd to see fluxbox start 'normally' and then have a cluttered roxpin draped over it with both an fb and lxpanel..

Interesting to see what got 'updated' (not like the old days when things got dumped to a dir in tmp), not that I understand a lot of the under-the-hood changes but it seems lively yet stable.

(in afterstep wm) glxgears:
5803 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1159.199 FPS
6200 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1238.488 FPS
6200 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1238.500 FPS

Looking good on my old desktop - next..

------ offhand observation (a bit off-topic, but throwing it in anyway) ------
Compared to precise, menu compatibility is much better in racy with particular regard to lxpanel's menu plugin augmented by an lx-appearance.menu along with the others in /etc/xdg/menus dir. Structure is closer in racy, enabling a more familiar 'puppy' look with inline limits and so on if a branchout is desired. A nice feature of the lxpanel menu is that comment lines in the individual dotdesktop entries show as popups when hovered on the menu - this can be used with shorter, non-wordy entry names for a less 'sprawling' menu that still has the same or better comprehension of what the app does for users unfamiliar with the variety offered.

Not as skinny as a template but it pretty much auto-updates on-the-fly without any fuss Smile

The latest version of Flash Player 10 is uploaded to ibiblio here:-

http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-common/flashplayer10-10.3.183.23.pet

Not sure if that one will appear in PPM if you update the package lists though.

Works for me in SeaMonkey and Opera.

Thanks Oscar - I keep a number of .pets on a USB following the advice of ??? (DaveS?), notably a 10.3.x.x and a couple of 11.x.x.x, (notably 11..2.202.228.pet). I appreciate you want to be helpful but it has proved necessary to specify the exact version of browser. Sometimes it's just quicker to try each FP until one works! Ideally, one might engage in a massive editing operation on the PPM, listing all known browsers with appropriate FPs alongside - clearly an absurd request for our hard-pressed volunteer developers. Sadly not all Forum recommendations have proved viable in my tests, so there may be an element of HW? Or finger-trouble...
