Hello all.

If you need a fast, competent and lightweight browser, links2 is it.

This latest version 2.10 compiled from source for Puppy with javascript and
full graphics (jpg, png, svg, tiff) enabled, following the author's instructions.

Heads up! Most Puppies have most of those libraries. Meaning: you may need
to install extra libraries in your Puppy to get the full benefit of this compilation. Leave
me a note here mentioning which lib you need. I had to install all of them for this
compilation, so it's a simple matter for me to share them through this thread.

links2 will also run in console mode. It's the ideal Internet app to define in your
/usr/local/bin/defaulthtmlviewer script. Granted, it's weirder to use (menu access
is by keyboard), but it's more of a browser, less of a pager, than dillo, IMO.

If how fast you gather information on the Internet matters to you, this is the one
you need, this is a Formula1 browser. It is extremely fast on Internet searches.

Compiled in pemasu's raringPup-3.9.9.2, it should work in all Puppies with a
glibc of 2.17 or newer.

Available from: http://www.datafilehost.com/d/ba6e2bd9

Don't enjoy! Wink

Hello musher0,

in my desperate search of a light very light browser i try your pet but i have this error :

Code:
links2: /usr/lib/libtiff.so.5: no version  links2


Must i do a symbolic link ? If yes to what :

Code:
libtiff.so       
libtiff.so.4.3.4
libtiff.so.3     
libtiff.so.5
libtiff.so.4 


I tested your pet in Puppy Precise

Hi, jplt.

Indeed, a lightweight browser is a necessity these days, eh?

I may be wrong, but I think that your libtiff-4.3.something is not "strong" enough,
even if you link it as libtiff.so.5.

So... try the attached? It's a copy of what I have on this upupRaring-3.9.9.2.
Beforehand, make a copy of all libtiff files you have in /usr/lib, then unpack the
attached in /usr/lib.

Let me know? Thanks in advance.

Bye for now.

In tahrpup this page crash my system ! (very long page) (dillo support this page) !

Sorry about that. If I have the time, I may come up with a precise-specific version.

Generally speaking it is always best to compile in the Puppy you will be using to run the program. With different Pups you usually stand a better chance compiling in an older and running in a newer rather than the other way round. I compiled links 2.10 in Dpup Wheezy just against the existing libs (including glibc 2.13 of course). Seems to run OK but as you say Musher0 it takes a bit of getting used to. Posting this from it now, wonder if it will work including the attachment?

Thanks for the reminder, Oscar.

@jplt: PuppyPrecise-what?
(I mean: which version of Precise do you need the links2 for? There's a good dozen
of Precise's !)

I survived another deadline (hehe), so I'll have some free time on my hands this
week-end. Give me your version # and I'll try to compile links2 for your Precise.
(And before the question pops up in your head, no, I'm not a cat, haha. I don't know
which animal I am but I'm way past nine lives!!! ) Very Happy

Also, < links2 -g > had no problem showing your page in the upupRaring I compiled it in.
(Please see attached proof!)

In the console links2, I had no problem either viewing your page, except this console
variant of links2 does not show pictures.

Bye for now.

Bonjour,
Thank you musher for this thread i discovered by chance!
As links is the "basic" default browser of ToOpPY, I am interested in testing Links2 may be to get something less... basic!
Code:
links2: error while loading shared libraries: libevent-2.0.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This could be solved easily while installaling libevent libs using the PPM.
Now the problem is that Links2 complains about this missing lib:
Code:
/links: error while loading shared libraries: libjbig.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.
I tried to install "libjbig2dec0-dev_0" from PPM but nothing changed. It seems that this lib is not part of the standard Precise libs but part of Trusty. I guess it could work though but at the expense of other programs. I already experimented this. One problem is solved whereas others appear: It is indeed a very vicious circle!

Cordialement.

Sorry for the delay in producing a Precise 5.7.1 package, I had other fish to

To those of you using Argolance's new ToOpPy 2.0 FINAL, he's got Links-2 in there as the
basic browser. Didn't check the version, but it works great.

BFN.

Subject description: Compilation for / pour Puppy Precise-5.4.3 +
 

Good evening, all. / Bonsoir à toutes et à tous.

Sorry for the delay. / Désolé pour le retard.

For jplt and others using one of the Puppy Precise series:
(Link valid for 30 days only.)

Compiled and tested in PuppyPrecise-5.4.3, so should work in that pup
and other PPrecise's with higher version numbers than that one.

Enjoy! / À la bonne vôtre !

Hello, all.

A new links2, version 2.11, was released Aug. 30, 2015 (two days ago).
An already compiled "alt linux" package is avaiblable here.
Those guys are really quick... Smile

Note:
Partial test: some libs missing in upupRaring. Maybe stick with v. 10 for now.

BFN.
