I had a problem with looping/stuttering sound on slacko5.4.

I never rebooted, just quit Firefox and the problem cleared.

For other reasons, I tried slacko5.4-PAE and have never had the problem (uptime=75 days).

The PC was always near max memory use, now on PAE "free" shows 7495788 used, way more than is available on the non-PAE version.

So how about trying a PAE version?

This kind of anecdotal voodoo might not help, but it should be easy to give it a shot.

Thanks for your input, Flash. Do I understand you right, that you only have to restart Seamonkey? Or do you have to reboot the computer to get Flashplayer to work again?

It's been a while, but if I remember right all I have to do is restart SeaMonkey (or Firefox), not reboot the computer.

I'd say to go with what xophist suggests. Try a few different versions of Puppy. Burn a CD-RW of one and boot it with the pfix=ram option, then see what happens. If you have to reboot for some reason, you can save to the CD-RW (make a multisession Puppy) so it comes back up without going to the Save file on your hard disk drive. If that Puppy don't work, burn the next Puppy iso onto the CD-RW with either Burniso2cd or Pburn. I don't remember if you have to blank a CD-RW before Burniso2cd will burn a new iso on it, but I know you don't have to blank a rewritable DVD first.

You're right, all I have to do is close and restart Seamonkey. However, I couldn't recover Seamonkey instances and locations without closing all Seamonkey browsers at the same time, which means Restarting x server instead of rebooting. This represents a time improvement, but it's still an inconvenient interruption, and very disruptive, plus Seamonkey is limited in its ability to recover all previous windows.
