I've tried using Oscar's 'workaround' to 'upgrade' Slimmie in Tahrpup64.

For me (at least), this doesn't work. At all. Not because of any of the usual suspects in the terminal.....it never even gets far enough to try it.

It appears that if you're using the 'radeon' kernel driver module for an AMD graphics chip, then something in the 64-bit PaleMoon update (for obtaining the newest NSS libraries) messes this up.

Doing this all manually as a test, upon running 'fixmenus' to update the new SlimJet MenuEntry, restarting 'X' did not bring me back to the desktop. I tried all the tricks I know to get it running again, but ended up having to run the 'xorgwizard' again. And according to that, the 'radeon' driver module was no longer available; only the 'ati' one, which doesn't work for my particular graphics chip. And although 'xvesa' works (after a fashion), the picture quality is absolutely awful.

I've double-checked the steps for this at least twice, and have had to replace Tahr64's save-folder with last month's backup on each occasion simply to get things working again. For some reason, this works fine in 32-bit Pups, but won't work in 64-bitzers...

(*shrug*)

32 bit code is all that is required to obtain a functional browser.

In addition to allowing the same basic functionality as 32 bit code, 64 bit code allows remote control of all permissions on all files touching the browser interface. In other words, the user gains nothing by moving from 32 bits to 64 bits. By contrast the techno giants gain the ability to timestamp, machine stamp, path stamp, and ego stamp every ip request you make via a 64 bit browser.

Any attempt to get 64 bit browsers functional on Puppies merely plays into the hands of the power mad controllers of the universe.

The GDPR directive is a current example of what 64 bit browsers bring to the table.

It will be interesting to see what dregs are left to the rest of us once the browser wars lock us out.

Running Slacko-5.7.0-pae, loading from CD, with slackosave+SFS on internal HDD.
Previously had "slimjet-14.0.16.0-i686.sfs" running OK using "SFS-Load on-the-fly".

But then...
Restored today, "slackosave.4fs.BKP-15.07.11-18.53". [3-year-old!]
[Renamed as "slackosave.4fs"]
Cannot now get any of the following to run:
slimjet-14.0.16.0-i686.sfs
slimjet-15.1.6.0-i686.sfs
slimjet-19.0.9.0-i686.sfs

Firefox and Palemoon run ok.

Any suggestions?

Sylvander:-

What responses do you get when you try to start SlimJet from the terminal? The latest version I'm using here in 570 has for a long while been 14.0.16.0.

Make sure you've deleted /root/.cache/slimjet & /root/.config/slimjet, and allow it to set itself up again from scratch. All the Chromium-based browsers are 'fussy' like this.....I don't know quite how Flashpeak have coded SlimJet over the years, but it seems to be even more fussy!

Sylvander,

There is a slimjet-14.0.16.0-slack14.0.sfs which has the added extras needed for Slacko 5.7.0 if you want something which you can just load and go

I have this working. Very Happy
Except youtube_videos=HTML5 won't play:
"Your browser does not currently recognise any of the video formats available."

Given the above, do I still need to do this?

Before doing the above, was and am having trouble with Firefox, as follows:
At the beginning of a new session, I can click the "save" icon, and it will work OK, and also at shutdown/reboot the "do you wish to save" box is displayed, BUT...
Once I run Firefox, and it auto-updates...
Clicking the "save" icon freezes the system, and...
At shutdown/reboot, the "do you wish to save" box doesn't appear.
Instead I get text on a black halted screen, and must hit "ctrl+alt+backspace".
Hence, I cannot save any of the firefox updates. Sad

Should a start a new thread on this?
