PostPosted: Fri 16 Sep 2011, 21:42    Post subject: Advice for installation  

Would I be advised to do the following?
  1. Download ISO, and the 2 PETs:
    • Seamonkey 2.3.3
    • libstdc++6-4.5
  2. Boot the ISO
  3. Click to install each PET
Does this cover 3-Head properly?

Thanks for advice

Yeah, Start with the iso. Seamonkey is not mandatory--all of the Chromium-based browsers, Chrome and Iron 13 and Chromium 16 work, as well as Firefox and Opera will work. . The libstdc++6 is just an experiment--it seems to be working so far--it would show up in the next update, if so.

It has the hostname fix you know. Wink

majorfoo, You might try Menu -> Internet -> GetFlash, which will download and install the latest Flashplayer--it seems to be changing so often.

Something hijacked my email icon. I think it was Frisbee but I am not sure--it was changed to mozmail which is not installed. If this happens to you, you can right click the icon, then choose Open as text, and replace mozmail with sylpheed, and then save. Or maybe it was the Spup Seamonkey, which didn't work, hmm.

thanks for info on latest flashplayer.

I d/l flashplayer-10.3.183.5-lucid.pet - I try to keep current version of the stuff that I install on all new versions on my save partition. This speeds up the install process on new full installation for me and saves d/l time for each new version that i try.

luci-001 is working great on my full install - no problems to report.

OK, I hadn't realised that I had included the definitions file in my pet.

EDIT: NEW VERSION Sorry, didn't create correct directory so it would have errored out with binary not found with xfprot.

EDIT: Install Xfprot from below and then select update button to download the virus definitions.


Note- my testing was done on full install if new luci-001

Installed latest version plus Xfport and ran update procedure

Default is to scan /root/desktop - Should this be changed to: path to scan = / in order to scan complete system or at least place notation that it will only scan what is shown?

User needs to maximize screen in order to see complete scan details including scan log

Worked great after I made the entries shown on screenshot below

following is way I set up mine to scan

@Majorfoo, Where is this procedure's steps?

Seems like a useful tool to have to for scanning folders that Windows PCs are writing to over the LAN.

Thanks in advance.

Indeed! Choose Opera or Chrome and all your woes will end.
Everything working well. Good to see the inclusion of SysInfo - back to the future - still using the FDD DOS version, especially to demonstrate to the uninitiated that their Wbox they claim 'is broken' is fully functional prior to trying to persuade them to load a proper OS.

See page 14 of this thread.
You need F-prot-6.03.pet and Xfprot-2.4.pet

Once installed, open gui = utility > xfprot

Must update virus database = F2

Then select path to scan
I selected / directory to get all
then I checked boxes as shown on example above

then F1 to run scan

Hope this helps

other puppies have caught the disease. Remove power cable. Blinking ceases. Battery dies quite soon after. Decision time. New battery or new netbook? other puppies have caught the disease. Remove power cable. Blinking ceases. Battery dies quite soon after. Decision time. New battery or new netbook?

Tough choice. I bought a new battery for my old Thinkpad, but it failed very quickly--I think there was a problem with the charging or something. Newegg always has a nice laptop in the $400 range--I bought my daughter one for high school graduation and a birthday. A Toshiba, not a netbook though. They should be $100 cheaper if you could get one without windows.

With my experience with different kind Acer laptops, 5 different. 2 cases have had good battery when bought replacement. One laptop needed the 2 exchanges before I got working one. Fortunately the firm accepted the change without charge. One laptop worked six months with new battery. Now it still charges ok, but the connection pins just dont take good contact. It shuts down whenever it wants. It is now in cable all the time.
I am not grande consumer of laptops. Those are laptops of whole my family and my mother also.

I am sure above helped in your decision. !? Very Happy Shocked Rolling Eyes

Might've said something about batteries previously? The trick is to keep them at 'top-of-charge' as often and as long as possible (that includes your car battery, too). NiCd are most familiar in electronic applications although were displaced by NiMH, and now Li-ion. The last named must be charged with a 'smart' charger. Like all the previous types they have their own idiosyncrasies, must not be overcharged nor over discharged, although the danger of bursting into flames seems to have been designed out mostly. Ironically, the safest NiMH types have proved most unreliable in practice even when all the rules are observed. Probably , less than half of mine have achieved their predicted lifecycles. As for NiCd, their memory effect is legendary. These are still in favour for power tools in which they usually get fully discharged fairly frequently before being recharged from the ground state - the best way to treat them. Their downsides make them destined for obsolescence: cadmium is too rare and too toxic for such frivolities.
Whenever feasible use the machines with the charger plug in and mains switched on. Rather defeats the principal objective, of course. But regulars around here will be aware of my very best advice: dump laptops! I still refuse them as gifts - nothing but trouble. If it has to move, get a smart mobile.
