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.

I'm posting this from Puppy 4.20 SUE, using Opera 11.11 which works well in it. It's still usable in 2019 though it probably helps that I've got a thirteen year old computer.

Posting this from another of my faves - Puppy Lighthouse 4.12.

Seamonkey 1.1.11 is really old though and not really adequate for most of the Internet any more (though it's still good for this site).

Upgrade to Opera 12, slightly newer and the last of the old Opera's. Smile

Hi,

Thanks for the advice, but Opera 12 needs a later version of glibc (2.8 ) than this pup has got.

I don't think so. Here is a download link from the puppy 412 collection site:

Thanks. It worked, but I'm getting a lot of "Unable to complete secure transaction" errors with it for some reason (even duckduckgo wouldn't open). It's a shame, because it would be good if it was able to access more of the sites I use.

The kernel for these older pups do not include TLS1.2, which is standard today. One needs at least a 3-series kernel, AND a browser that also supports TLS1.2.

Those old browsers have problems with most https sites, don't know if one can change settings to change that behaviour, probably not.

Here's a blast from the past; I'm posting this from Muppy 008, which is an oldie but goodie. It's got the absolute kitchen sink on it but the browsers are unfortunately quite antiquated for today's Internet (this is Seamonkey 1.1.8 ). I'm glad that the Puppy forum's quite conservative in the code it's built with and loads easily in old browsers such as this one.

Hi ColonelPanic.

Muppy 0.08? Used it for a couple of years. Quite the distro. Not surprised.
It's our loss that member MU (Mark Ulrich) has left.
