Subject description: I Installed the PET Packages for 2.23 & 2.25 - Neither Will Boot
 

Hi, earlier in this forum there is a thread where there were links for PET files to install Seamonkey 2.23 and 2.25:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=90882

I tried 2.25 first, it didn't work, so I used the PPM (Puppy Package Manager) to uninstall it. Then I installed 2.23, which also did not boot. I even rebooted Wary a few times to make sure. The new browser will not activate.

I have Wary 5.5, on a live CD. The default browser is Seamonkey 2.61, which is very outdated. I am unable to properly install the TAR package for Seamonkey 2.39.tar.bz2, even though I downloaded it.

What should I do?

Thanks in advance, Duckguy

Most of those SeaMonkey packages will almost certainly need dbus and dbus-glib so if you have not done so you need to install those via PPM and then reboot Puppy. Even then I am not sure if those SeaMonkeys will run in Wary because the libraries are rather old. Unless your computer is a very old one you should consider using a more recent Puppy version.

Install dbus and dbus-glib from here:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-wary5/dbus-1.2.4.2permissive-1-w5.pet
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-wary5/dbus-glib-0.82-w5.pet

and download Seamonkey tarbz and run from the folder you unzip it and run from that folder.

Thanks. It's up and running now.

What is funny, all the bookmarks imported, along with the saved tabs from the last shut down. Also, there are no extra menu entries. All the existing Seamonkey/Browser shortcuts on the Desktop, and in the Menu tree, automatically now just boot up Seamonkey 2.39! The process was absolutely flawless and seamless.

Thanks to you both for the advice. Also for the links, as the PPM did not have the updated drivers. Without the links, I might still be struggling!

Thanks so very much.

So, do you have any idea if I need to delete/clean up the old files from the outdated Seamonkey installation?

Hey duckguy!

I've had similar problems with Wary 5.5 - in the midst of trying to solve my general Seamonkey/Firefox updates dilemmas, of late...

I'm not sure if it's best to completely delete the previous Seamonkey. Check through the two threads I've listed below as there may be some info in the advice proffered there that will make this clearer.

I *do* know that on my Mac Mini, I have two versions of Seamonkey and when I click the icon in the programs/exectuables dock at the bottom of my screen, I always get not only a GUI word box with a button to confirm that I want to open Seamonkey, but also a second GUI box which offers to install (whatever version of) Seamonkey...

Seamonkey is installed and working (though not the latest version) on that system, so I just click the "x" on that installer GUI box and it goes away and Seamonkey boots.

I suspect that with your current Seamonkey - the latest and shiniest - since it "just works", you'll probably be all right leaving things as they ARE (!!!) -

"If it ain't broke..."

Glad I found this. I came to the conclusion this morning that I ought to simply download the latest Seamonkey - as duckguy has done - and do my best to install it where it will be recognized and (I HOPE!) start to function immediately...

If this works, it will SOLVE my "Seamonkey Update Troubles" and "Firefox Updates Make Firefox Vanish!!!" troubles...

Which you can witness being whined about and grappled with here:

( p.s. I had that annoying thing happen where a URL designation makes the whole post disappear, so the first link above is just plain text...)
