Using puppy 525 full on USB stick; older computer, HD removed, cannot boot from USB so using CD for startup. 995MHz, 1GB RAM

Installed SFS, cranky reboot, no Opera in menu. Several restarts, Xorg troubles, more restarts, Xorg O.k, still no Opera in menu. Removed SFS, downloaded and installed again, several restarts and crashing Xorg, finally o.k and working now.

Will Opera ever get mediaplayer connectivity? In former versions I read it might use a specific mozilla/vlc plugin nowhere to find.

willem1940NLD: Opera uses the media plugins available in your version of Puppy. To see what Opera "sees" go to Tools>Advanced>Plugins.

Check or amend settings for a particular file type in Preferences>Advanced>Downloads.

Thanks, found the plugins table all set for use. This must be new because earlier Opera-versions only offered to download files on web I touched, except for Flash which worked well.

O.k now, tested it and it picks avi and the lot.

Can someone help with it on this older computer under Puppy 214X?

Correction .... my confusion .... it was Chromium that did not connect to mediaplayers.

Sheldon,

I have no experience of Puppy 214X and have not tested my SFS on it. My personal focus is on supporting Quirky and Wary users. Your original post was in the correct thread to discuss problems running Puppy 214X. Hopefully, the developer will be able to help.

This works great, thanks for making it available.
I have a very low end box, VIA epia ek1000, and made a couple of changes in opera:config that seem to make it perform better.
Of course under plugins, turn off flash, drives this cpu nuts.
Under performance >
max connections server 2
max connections total 4
max persistent 6
network buffer size 128
Under user pref >
Automatic ram cache off (this seems counter productive but makes a big difference in snappy feel)
You can also turn off mouse gesters under prefs>advanced>shortcuts

Hi anika200. I'm glad to hear it works well on your box. Your tips will be useful to other users of low end boxes. The good thing about Opera is it is so configurable. Using opera:config you can turn off everything you do not need. It is worth taking the time to understand all the available features.

Terryphi, thanks for all of your work with Opera. I just wanted to report that verision 11.60 gives me error messages in Saluki (Racy-based) everytime I close it. Version 11.52 seems to be very stable. I have a modified version of it which I use for my Internet Apps downloader.
