Subject description: can't download firefox or seamonkey
 

I've downloaded a couple of versions of puppy and tried them on various old machines, and have always been able to download firefox. Now I've got a new old Dell Latitude D600 with no hard drive, and it boots fine and hooks up to the internet fine, but when I try to download ANYthing, it says "sorry your package was not found." I've tried the browser and quickpup, and ALL the suggested versions, and get the same message. Any suggestions?

What is the URL of the web page or site you're trying to download from?

tried pup control, browser and even mozilla (accessed through Dillo, which seems useless). Tried other programs, too, like audacity and wine, and nothing worked. Nothing told me where they were looking.

Quickpet/Slickpet error, correct?

Walt, you want which browser for which pup? Be specific when answering about the pup.

If it's FF you want, open a terminal from somewhere convenient, then copy and paste this line:
Code:
wget --no-check-certificate https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/releases/30.0/linux-i686/en-US/firefox-30.0.tar.bz2

With no FF installed, you'll wanna extract this to /usr/lib, then drag'n drop the executable to /usr/bin.

Actually I wanted a smaller FF than 30. Then, since this IS beginnner's help, if you could do a step-by-step with the installation I'd appreciate it. I've never noticed that extracting gave you a choice about WHERE it's extracted to (but I'll look again), then I'm still not clear with how you open the file and make install it. There's an FF tar.gz in there now, but I'm working on getting permission to open it. Does a tar.gz need further adjustments before it's installed?

Take your pick. Now, your pup? Does XArchive open when you click on the dwnldd file?

OK, I tried cutting and pasting the wget FF30, and this is what I wgot

warning cannot verify download
unable to verify the issuer's authority
http request sent awaiting response
404 not found

The Puppy version is 528

I also can't use "control-alt-T" to open terminal. Is that common?

LP2_Firefox7.sfs - comes with flash player installed
LP2_Firefox-13-Lucid.sfs - I think this has no flash player

These files are .sfs files or SFS Modules. Load and unload them with SFS-Load (somewhere in the Menu - Setup?) or sfs_load (type in terminal).

Copy these SFS Modules into your boot directory or at boot partition, so SFS-Load (sfs_load) will find them.

I downloaded LP2_Firefox7sfs to tmp and made a coopy (I think) in root so it doesn't get lost.

Do I need to download BOTH sfs files? Which Root file to I copy them to? There seem to be at lest two.

Couldn't find SFS Load. . .found SFS convert, but I don't think that's the same thing.

Keep instructions really simple: I'd never seen Rox before.

Copy the files to where your puppy's sfs is stored (lupu_528.sfs?).

No, both SFS Modules containing Firefox. One is version 7 the other is version 13. Version 7 has flashplayer installed.

SFS-Load Thread(sfs_load)

Download recommended (imo) version for lucid 528

That message means you probably didn't wait, or had trouble with copy'n paste, right?

So, what kind of a setup are we dealing with?

A frugal install involving a save file?

Or a full install to the hard drive?

Neither?

I think it's frugal, and in this case, I'm trying the disk out on an old Latitude d600 with no hard drive. I've been wondering if that makes a difference, or if the the computer is too old for 528.

Semme: I think you're right, I may not have waited long enough. The copy and paste thing is in Rox, right? I'm just learning about that: it seems to be something in between terminal and GUI. Never saw anything like it on Ubuntu.

Is there a tutorial somewhere on Rox? When you do the copy thing, let's say to the drive with the 528 sfs, you have to get the correct address in the little "copy to" window. In this case would the address of the drive be enough( I think it's sbd1)?

With no hd you're running live.. NO save file.. Unless of course, there's a usb stick in the mix?

Outside of a session disk, a flash drive would happily hold a save file.

Now the copy'n paste bit's from a terminal. As the standard Urxvt blows, open the package manager and install something useful.. something like Sakura or ROXTerm.. anything's better for a novice than the ever lousy Urxvt. That silly thing requires you highlight the text you're looking to copy, then pasting into your terminal by hitting your left/right mouse buttons simultaneously.

The advice offered by RSH would be suitable if you had some kind of persistence, but you don't.

Still, his dwnlds should suffice. After the dwnld, clk to install:
Code:
wget http://shino.pos.to/linux/puppy/sfs_load-1.3.9.pet

After grabbing this one, rt-clk and hit sfs_load:
Code:
wget http://smokey01.com/RSH/LazY-Puppy-201/lp201-sfs/single-apps/LP2_Firefox-13-Lucid.sfs

Completing the above should allow you to surf.

==

Actually, enter "ppm" into that Urxvt thingy and search firefox.. Omit the above altogether!

I've been poking away at this. downloading things, shuffling them around, and I'm still where I began: I can't run firefox. The most recent download is firefoxESR-24.6.0-x86.sfs. I did load sfs, and it looked like it was loaded, but is there something else I need to do to get it to run? When I finished the loading, it asked if I wanted to run it. I clicked "yes" and was sent to the firefox download site, which, of course, doesn't work. Bottom line: where do I put it and how do I get it there?

Walt52, Before anything else, we know that you have a Dell Latitude D600 with no hard drive but: How much memory does this computer have? This may prove to be a factor. A flash drive holding a permanent Save File would also prove extremely beneficial.
