Yep used that for awhile based Dpup squeeze.

You should try Dpup 009 as well also from Iguleder.

I've just tried Midnight Sun Pup. It looks great (and very appropriate since we're in June now) and came with a Firefox which could be updated as far as FF45, but it wouldn't run Pale Moon or install Softmaker FreeOffice 2018 (I didn't try it with 2016).

@ Colonel Panic:-

Give the SSE-only version of Palemoon 27.9.4 a look. Watchdog did a build with a glibc-2.19 'tweak' built-in, and I turned it into a 'portable', along the same lines as Fred's FF-Quantum portable.. Ten to one your problem is the glibc being too old, though you could be having issues with too-old 'deps', too.....

My 'portable' version:- http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1022606#1022606

Or there's jrb's 'installer' script for the same:- http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=116108

Yes, you could use watchdog's original .pet package, but what with you being an inveterate 'distro-hopper', I think the portables are simply the easier option for you....and they work on a lot of non-Puppy distros, too; I've had Fred's FF-Quantum portable running happily in AntiX, back when I still had it installed.

(You could put this in one 'permanent' location on your machine, and just access it via the launcher script whenever you want to use it. Or stick it on a flash drive; they run just as happily from one of those.)


Mike. Wink

Thanks Mike; this will be good if or when I'm using older versions of Puppy such as that one. I generally install the Debian package of Palemoon or Vivaldi when I'm in Debian or a Debian-based distro (such as Liquid Lemur, the one I'm posting this from).

Distro-hopping? When I'm not using Puppy, these days I tend to use Debian-based distros more than any others because they work better with old computers like mine and are also very easy to update. I could be accused of flitting around between distros (if it is an accusation?), but the distros I flit (or hop) between are getting fewer and fewer. This is at least the third time I've installed Liquid Lemur, for example.
