Of course I should have known Smile , lets just say that Flash (as in the player Wink ) is crap... burning issues are another matter, at which I will look more closely tomorrow.

Cheers, Mick


..methinks solution is increasing reliance on alternative browsers (e.g dillo, links). Flash is just one of the problems that come with a mainstream browser, and it's not likely to go away soon..so let's get on with it. (there's nothing blinking in MY browser).

Haha! You may like Slacko B3 jpeps.. I booted pfix=ram,nox and managed to connect to my wireless network, download links and post this message. Any noob could do it Smile . A bit more testing and I might release B3 soon.

Cheers

Thanks for testing gnumeric Dave.

B3 is looking ok after a couple of false starts. I installed fbpanel/openbox and all is well except the top margin is set at around 26/27 pix, guess I shoulda checked Smile , hardly a showstopper though.

I set it up so one depends on the other, either way they both download and install (from PPM), not for slickpet though, it's not capable of checking deps yet.

edit 1: so far B3 is all good on eee-701SD Smile (usb boot)

edit 2, 3, 4: boots fine on sonny's HP lappy, (time is a luxury on that thing Rolling Eyes ), however synaptics is still crap on that one until I run flloopfix, I rolled back to flsynclient-0.6 Confused (usb boot)
boots fine on the SiS box, older Athlon 256 RAM.. connects browses.. does what you need (cd boot)
boots fine on the Brookdale box (TY MHHP Wink ).. (usb boot)

B3 is uploading now

Abiword 2.9.1

UUgghhh.. what a mission.. Rolling Eyes

Tried Ted, quickly discounted Ted.. it hasn't been developed in over 2 years so isn't compatible with the newer gtk/gdk/cairo/png libs. I got it to run, too many critical errors, plus it only opens .rtf.

Now abiword seems to depend on boost c++ libraries. There is a configure option "--with-boost=no" but it seems boost is now part of the core of abiword.. So with that I compiled the opendocument plugin which requires boost anyway. I did this very fastidiously! Every error in make I added only the required part of boost, it's still a 15M installed package (better than over 100M Rolling Eyes Surprised Shocked ).. thankfully none of the shared libs are needed so this is only a requirement for the devx, I got the compressed size down to under 1M. Yes, all this for a second rate WP. There is no real alternative considering size. As far as my testing goes, it opens .rtf, .doc, .odt, .abw that's all I use, and I don't use abiword anyway.

Here it is..

Abiword 2.7M



found minor problem when tried to run abiword. It would not open from desktop icon. There is no defined defaultwordprocessor in /usr/local/bin Once I added this, it worked great
Notice you have fixed this in Slacko B3
