Subject description: New release 59.0.3100.0....includes Pepper 26.0.0.131 (and NetFlix!)
 

Afternoon, all.

Well, Oscar's done it again. He's got me interested in another Chromium-based clone; this time, the SRWare Iron browser. And, having tried this one out, I'm even more impressed than I was with SlimJet. For one thing, this one supports NetFlix playback.....after swapping WideVine modules with those from Chrome itself. SlimJet doesn't.....because FlashPeak won't code in the necessary h.264 codec support....for 'legal' reasons! Shocked

This is like Chrome itself; compiled against an older version of the 'C' library.....so compatible with more Pups. The same goes for Oscar's 32-bit packages:-

https://yadi.sk/d/_S5b4g7tpcyZn

My version installs to /opt, following my usual practice. Because Iron looks for Pepper in /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin (even in the 64-bit Pups), which is a sym-link to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, the latter location is where I've placed libpepflashplayer.so and manifest.json. Iron looks in /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin and finds Pepper due to the sym-link.

(This behaviour is 'hard-coded' into the binary itself, and can't be changed, being primarily set-up for, yep; you guessed it.....Ubuntu!! adobe-flashplugin is the standard location for all things flash-related in the 'buntus...). Rolling Eyes

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So; here are some SFS packages for the 64-bit Pups. The link is to the Iron folder in my MediaFire a/c; just help yourself to the one you need. The 'Slacko64' version should work for FatDog.

There's also a 32-bit 'generic' version, again installing to /opt. As with Oscar's build, the 32-bit version won't run except without sandboxing, employing the '--no-sandbox' switch. Just one of those things, I'm afraid.

https://www.mediafire.com/folder/dq22req4a9tji/Iron_SFS_packages

Any feedback, problems, etc.,you know where to find me.

Enjoy!


Mike. Wink

**New version**

Afternoon, all.

The new 64-bit version of Iron, 55.0.2900.0, released yesterday, is now available for download. These can be found at the link in post #1.

I've included the WideVine module from the current stable Chrome, as SRWare don't provide it.....and in fact their instructions are to 'poach' it from a current version of Chrome. It's also available from the Slackware repo of AlienBob.

The new version of PepperFlash, 24.0.0.186, released 2 days ago, is also included.

Have fun. Any problems, I can be found at the usual location..! Laughing

Afternoon, all.

64-bit 55.0.2900.0 has been re-uploaded, with the correct PepperFlash (24.0.0.186) this time. (I accidentally left 23.0.0.207 in. Sorry 'bout that..! Embarassed )

All good, now.

Subject description: crashing for unknown reasons
 

Not sure why, older chromium Version 47.0.2526.73 Puppy Linux Tahr 6.05 64 works fine. Iron blanks to black screen after 2-5 minutes, no way out but dirty reboot... also the settings hamburger on the top right does nothing so cant see if disabling acceleration would help. after the reboot . it crashes within 30 seconds, cant clear cache ass cant get to settings

I was hopeful, I like that you've got this as all in one, no hack required

Hi, charbaby.

Mm. Easiest way out would be to delete /root/.cache/iron and /root/.config/iron, re-start Iron, and just let it set itself up again. That's not a problem I've encountered as yet...

I'll let you into a little secret. The browsers that I package, I keep up to date for the community, because many folks like having them as up-to-date as possible. Personally, I run quite a few 'older' browsers.....simply because I don't always like what the developers have done with the newer versions..!

One of my all-time favourites is Chromium 36.0.1985.143; it just 'works', and has never given me the slightest bit of trouble. It's my go-to browser when all else fails... And I always run the very last 32-bit version of Chrome in all my 32-bit Pups; 48.0.2564.116. Touch wood, it, too, has always been trouble-free...

Merry Xmas!


Mike. Wink

Well, there you go. That's Linux for ya; oodles of choice! 'Slimmy's another favourite of mine; my only niggle is that you can't watch NetFlix on it. FlashPeak won't include the necessary h.264 codecs.....for 'legal reasons'.

?????

Ah! Thanks for that, 'quirky'....(you've really picked a good 'un there, ain't ya?) Laughing

I've never been too sure whether these would work in FatDog; cheers for the confirmation.

Appreciated.

Anyone using 64-bit Iron and wanting to update to the new version of Flash, just use the .pet from my thread here.

**New version**

Evening, everybody.

The new 64-bit version of Iron, 56.0.2950.0, released yesterday, is now available for download. These can be found at the link in post #1.

The WideVine module has been 'borrowed' from the current stable Chrome, as SRWare don't provide it.....and in fact their instructions are to 'poach' it from a current version of Chrome. It's also available from the Slackware repo of AlienBob. NetFlix runs without issue.

The new version of PepperFlash, 24.0.0.221, released just this morning, is also included.

As fully expected, this release, since it's based on Chromium 56, is displaying all the same 'refusing to run as root' symptoms peebee and I fell foul of a week or 2 back, with Chrome & Chromium. Accordingly, iguleder's libpuppygc.so 'workaround' has once again been successfully employed......as linked to by 01micko, our 'head honcho'. Thanks again, Mick (and of course, iguleder.....without whose efforts this wouldn't be working.....at all.)

And thanks also go to peebee, for doing the necessary 64-bit conversion on the libpuppygc.so module.

Enjoy. Any problems, y'all know where to find me..! Laughing

Hi Mike,

Iron gives me the same error message on https://dnsquery.org/
as Chrome 56...

This site can’t provide a secure connection

dnsquery.org sent an invalid response.
ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR

Hi again, orrin.

Ah! OK... I rather expected that, TBH. I don't know what the hell Google have done with Chrome/Chromium 56, but it's thrown a 'spanner in the works', that's for sure.

I have a sneaking suspicion it's got summat to do with SSL certification, y'know. Google were talking about setting up their own SSL authority on the blog a few weeks back. I can't help wondering if we're seeing some of the first results of that now starting to filter through?

Just a thought.

Edit:- It's curious, TBH. If you look through the Certificare manager in Settings, it would appear that although most certificates are trusted, there's a few that aren't.....including Google's very own ID!! I'm wondering if they've deliberately allowed this to expire, prior to setting up their own certificate authority? Hmmm... Confused

Subject description: WebGL not supported
 

Hello, Mike,

downloaded your 64bit Iron56 and now posting from it. But when i visited some sites that contains VR video, Iron 56 just totally failed to open. I used Oscar's latest 64bit Vivaldi to visit that same site and it was successful.
