You can test run any binary by downloading, then extracting your pkg in /tmp.

Launch binaries outside the "PATH" variable with a rt-clk, window, "terminal here"
then "./binary_name" or, DOT_FORWARDSLASH_BINARYNAME type deal to see the messages.

The beauty of this method relies on the fact that items placed in this directory don't survive a reboot.

Maybe. Often you have to fix some litle things, 'little' if you know how, and you don't know how yet. But it will come. It is not that hard and it is fun to learn. One step at a time.

Any luck with the firefox? Do you know what it needs?

Oh yes , I really don't know yet , but will................I think back to my first experience with a "computer"........... It was my kids' Commodore.............. Learned a small bit there , but moved on to help Bill get rich ( windows) and as I look back ,I've concluded I stayed with and spent too much money on windows.
I only spend about an hour a day in front of Puppy these days.
