I'm trying to download something someone posted on Rapidshare. I am getting this error when trying to download it in Seamonkey.

There is not enough room on the disk to save /tmp/qrvc60va.bin

Remove unnecessary files from the disk and try again, or try saving in a different location.

I know this can't be true. I just created a new 1.25 Gigabyte pupfile.

Umm,...isn't /tmp in physical ram, rather than in the savefile? Have you tried saving to a mounted partition, e.g. /mnt/sda1...?

It wouldn't let me pick where to save it.

Anyway, I'm not having this problem in Firefox.

Edit-->Preferences-->Downloads-->tell it where.

Or, do you mean, Firefox lets you download to /tmp, but Seamonkey doesn't?

Firefox is downloading to the /root directory.

Seamonkey is downloading to /tmp . I like Firefox better anyway. Seamonkey won't load Facebook right.

Well, I wouldn't know, I don't use Facebook.

Ttuuxxx has recently made something called Firepup, a very fast Firefox.

However, when using an SMP 2.6.27.2 kernel in Puppy 4.1, on my rig, the speed difference between Firepup and bog-standard SM 1.1.13 is not very much.

I do know that Seamonkey will not let me send in the new, improved Hotmail, unless I go into about:config and change

general.useragent.extra.Seamonkey

to read

Firefox/2.0 really Seamonkey/1.1.13

Anyhow, glad it's working for you now. Welcome back.

Thanks. I was in Ubuntu land for a while, but 8.10 was causing some problems for me, and I kind of want to get back to work on my own Puppy-based distro. This one also supports my wireless on my laptop out of the box where Ubuntu doesn't.

Yeah, the newer kernels have dramatically increased the variety of wireless cards they include support for.

I'm one of those microwave-sensitive tinfoil-hat-wearers though. I don't do wireless. I even moved out to a remote mountain area, where even the cellphone signal is iffy, to stop the constant ringing in my ears.

Haha, I understand that, I guess.

Now, if I could only get horizontal and vertical scrolling turned off on my touch pad in Puppy 4.1.1...until then, I'm using my USB mouse, and as a graphic designer, when I'm doing work, the mouse works better for me anyway.

Dunno. My wild guess would be it's a Synaptics entry in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but I don't have a touchpad. Perhaps if you lsmod and identify the touchpad driver, then rmmod to remove it. Uh, be careful though, I don't know whether our kernels have rmmod support.

Anyhow, bedtime here. I affirm someone wiser will answer you aptly in the other thread. G'Night.

Never mind that. Apparently I opened the wrong file.

Facebook works for me, devils spawn ajax bloat that it is. It might just be one of your facebook applications or whatever it is they call them.

The chat and notifications in the bottom right hand corner of Facebook do not show up in Seamonkey.

Other than that, it loads fine. But I use that chat a lot on Facebook.
