I compiled seamonkey-1.1.19 against gtk-1.2 to cut the memory footprint in half (only ~48MB) The only problem is that it breaks compatibility with flash player (10 fails and 9 causes seamonkey to exit) If that is not a problem and you have limited resources such that the gtk2 version is too much, then this may be the browser for you.

http://puppy-development.googlecode.com/files/seamonkey-1.1.19.tar.lzma

to open
lzma -d seamonkey-1.1.19.tar.lzma
tar -xf seamonkey-1.1.19.tar
then cd into the directory and run ./seamonkey

here is my post with a script to download and modify flash7 (or 9 or 10 but this one requires flash 7)

I was mistaken about flash - only flash7 will work, but it works for most games - one of the video downloader plugins should do videos.

Added to initial post (I put mine in the plugins directory within the seamonkey directory rather than /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins so that other apps will use later versions if installed)

Subject description: works well in 2/3 the memory
 

Thanks for the gtk 1.2 pet package.
Puppy 4.31 on a Thinkpad 660e 400MH upped to 220MB RAM.
(I also have a Thinkpad 770 266MHz to try next, where
Seamonkey 2.0 segfaults).

Loading the sfs into RAM leaves me little memory to work in.

Default GTK2 seamonkey uses 39% and this one only 26%
(both viewing the page telling me to upgrade to version 2.0).

Browser memory use here:
links graphical - 4% (no pages loaded)
netsurf (no javascript) - 10%
seamonkey 1.1.19 gtk1.2 - 26%
skipstone (no javascript) - 29%
seamonkey 1.1.19 gtk2 - 39%
opera 9 or 10 - 55%
midori - 62%
firefox 2 - 69%
(firefox 3 about 85%, seamonkey 2 even more, on a desktop
with 256MB RAM - would not even try them here)
kazahakase used about 30-40% but kept crashing.

I may put puppy in 72MB RAM with your seamonkey for a friend who needs a laptop for school.
Can you recommend a lower-ram puppy to use it with?
Will Seamonkey run in 256 colors? (Opera after 6 won't).

Would the binary posted at the seamonkey site for gtk 1.2
also work in puppy?

I just tried the one on their site yesterday ... also the static browser only version on lamarelle.org and both worked fine with my hacked version of flash7 to play most youtube videos and other flash content.

if you already have flash7 just put it in a working directory and run
Code:
cat libflashplayer.so |sed -e "s/7.0 r73/10.1 r9/g" >/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

(this just tells websites that you are running a later version than you really are)

PostPosted: Sun 29 Aug 2010, 16:37    Post subject: SeaMonkey 2.0.5 vs 1.1.18
Subject description: SeaMonkey behaves differently
 

I am using an Acer Travelmate 6000 Laptop which has a 4-way scroll-button under the touchpad.
In SeaMonkey 1.1.18 the right and left motion moved forward or back in the page history. In Version 2.0 it does not do anything. (the up and down switch still works though)
I experienced this behaviour using Puppy 4.3.1 so I switched back to 1.1.18.
Now after migrating to Lucid Puppy 5.1 I cannot find a packet for the 1.1.18 SeaMonkey so this useful feature is lost.
Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

try asking in the lupu thread - this is specifically for the gtk1 version

the puppy4 version should work though
