I just compiled the latest chromium-25.0.1364.97.

25 has just gone stable. It *should* run on i586 (Athlon-XP, pentium-2) and you will notice there are far less errors logged due to being compiled against true slackware dependencies. (as with the other chromium-24.xxxx that I compiled at ibiblio and mirrors). I'll upload it soon, but as usual, ibiblio is giving troubles. EDIT: uploaded, see below

See http://www.chromium.org/developers/calendar for the current status of chromium. A handy reference.

No wonder it's slower, using swap with just the browser open.........
This is an interesting comment. Having swap, you've done a good thing is protecting that your system wouldn't quickly lock as you increase system workload. But I am curious because of an observation I've made about 32bit PUPs I/O subsystem usage when running "pfix=RAM".

If you turn off SWAP, via
Code:
swapoff /dev/...
could you notice any difference in behavior of the P3 PC? Just curious of what you might observe.

Thanks in advance.


I already knew what would happen but........ Slacko 5.4.0.3 frugal install with 256 mb ram and swap off.

Pretty obviously got much,much slower...... almost too slow to use.

Code:
# free
             total         used         free       shared      buffers
Mem:        253280       245724         7556            0        17988

Swap:            0            0            0

Just took about 30 seconds to open the terminal to run "free".

Code:
# free
             total         used         free       shared      buffers

Went ahead and posted the above because I'm expecting a freeze-up at any moment.

Code:
# free
             total         used         free       shared      buffers
Mem:        253280       246916         6364            0        20576

Swap:            0            0            0

Opened a video in another tab.....don't know if it's the low-ram issue but cannot play a Youtube video......repeated flash crashes.Going to turn swap back on and try the video again.

Swap back on...... much better.

Code:
# free
             total         used         free       shared      buffers
Mem:        253280       248284         4996            0        22432
-/+ buffers:             225852        27428
Swap:      1020092        10064      1010028

Much quicker and videos play again. Swap on slow but usable and swapoff is basically useless.

Testing...... Laughing

Sorry everyone! wrong start script for chromium!

This is it at /usr/bin/chrome.sh

Code:
#!/bin/bash
# start script for chromium
USER_DATA_DIR=$HOME/.chromium_dir
[ -f $HOME/.chromium_data ] && . $HOME/.chromium_data
if [ "$UID" = 0 ];then
  exec /usr/lib/chromium/chrome --user-data-dir="$USER_DATA_DIR" "$OPTS" "$@"
  else
  exec /usr/lib/chromium/chrome "$@"
fi


If you want to add extra options, like --allow-outdated-plugins just add a line to it..
Code:
OPTS="--allow-outdated-plugins"
and older flash will work. This is added to the file $HOME/.chromium_data which you need to create. (HOME=root most of the time). You can add multiple options to OPTS,
Code:
OPTS="--allow-outdated-plugins --disk-cache-size=10000000"
which limits cache to 10M

Or you can add a different user-data dir with
Code:
USER_DATA_DIR="/mnt/home/chromium"


I'll pet the script but the package is reuploading and I'll edit my post with new checksum soon.

The new Chromiums (yours and 27 from JamesTheAwesomeDude) seem to be Chrome under the skin - see attached screenie.

slacky has uploaded google-chrome instead of updating Chromium...
http://slackware.org.uk/slacky/slackware-14.0/network/google-chrome/

I wonder what's happening?

Cheers

peebee,

I guess it just makes it easier for google... they call the shots. Rolling Eyes

Only difference really is pepperflash and dependency on gconf (which I hate incidentally.. did I ever mention that? Laughing ).

This is for testing before I do the next build, (I finally have a little time to do one!)

network_tray 18k

It is a rewrite of rerwin's version for frisbee integration.

You lose the ability to change themes though, but the icon theme is close to jemimah's frisbee original, except they are in svg format.

Also, I fixed a bug with my IP address showing in the tooltip. It now shows correctly if you connect over ppp. (direct modem). The icon *should change to a mobile phone if you are connected by a mobile phone or 3g modem or to an old phone if connected by analog modem. This is taken care of by a script by rerwin. If connected by ethernet you get blinking screens or by wireless you get the antenna.

This is designed to be NooB friendly Smile

Reports please.

no adverse behavior to report. Used a permanent system to download PET to USB.

Booted pristine, set hostname in FirstRUN, installed PET from USB, setup Frisbee. Nothing abnormal has occurred. All information is current and accurate. And IP is stable without issues.

Is this the kind of report you wanted?

Here to help

O1micko,

An example of a problem that seems to be common with USB flash drive installs. Not finding the Puppy main sfs file on bootup. I am seeing reports of this, more and more, dealing with Slacko and Precise.
As rcrsn51 points out.

This may be a timing issue. Other distros, like Fatdog, have a "waitusb" option to handle the problem.
