Thanks a lot, musher0, the crap hiding behind the download button in that limelinx link chrashed my 'fox Evil or Very Mad

Hello, tallboy.

I had other reports telling me that all went well downloading from that site: if you experienced something wrong at the linelinx site, please tell limelinx, not me. I don't manage that site, I'm a simple user there. But in my experience, they're pretty serious.

On the other hand, your "crap" may be due to any number of things: is your disk full? is your firefox cache full? Do you have a hosts file to protect you? Is your firewall on?

As well, if the Firefox browser doesn't do the job for you, you have a number of other choices: SeaMonkey, icecat, QTWeb, opera, etc., etc.

Best of luck.

Sorry, musher0, in the heat of the moment, my outburst came out a bit on the harsh side... Cool

When I clicked the download button, some 'lots of single girls'-page came up, and when trying to get rid of that, the whole 'fox just froze.
That happens now and then. BTW, I run off a live-CD, firewall is on, all caches, history and cookie files are emptied whenever Firefox is closed.

Hello, tallboy.

Apologies accepted. It's already forgotten.

That you are getting unwanted material when you download is worrysome, though. Do you have a "hosts" file? It redirects a great many advertising and porn, etc., even "phishing" addresses to a "never-never land" fictitious address, so you don't get intrusions in your browser. It works with any browser, too.

I use the one from http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm. But there are other good ones. You unzip and put this file in /etc under the name "hosts" (all in lower case).

It's not the ultimate solution but it helps.

Bye for now.

I see these new posts just now, I'll test your new pets musher and try to mirror somewhere.
I also use hosts file you mentioned for blocking unwanted sites.

PostPosted: Thu 14 Feb 2013, 13:22    Post_subject: Pidgin and weechat
Sub_title: latest versions
 

Weechat and Pidgin packages for dpup485 are here:

weechat-0.4.0-i686-dpup485.pet
Note: I had to compile/upgrade this lib libssh2-1.4.3-i686-dpup485.pet to get it compiled but it seems you don't have to install it to work

pidgin-2.10.7-i686-dpup485.pet
I also upgaded libidn for this build libidn-1.26-i686-dpup485.pet it seems it works without this pet but it gives error in console

Also if you need dev/nls/doc pets look here:

Hey people, do you think I should reupload dpup485 iso to Saturn's site since russoodle's inactive for the moment or is it obsolete (anyone still using this?)

Hi Dejan, Russoodle's site is slowly being rebuilt after a hack attack. As far as I understand it the site will eventually be back to normal...

EDIT : Oh I get it...did you mean "is dpup485 obsolete"? I still have a copy that I use ocassionally when troubleshooting one particular PC. If 485 is obsolete what do you consider would be the best replacement for it...?

If so then we wait. Smile

I don't know, I still use it because it's best compatibility with my hardware and still functions OK for me, but I assume with many new releases other people already switched to something else and there's no point in wasting someone's server space with old iso.
Best replacement is as usual what works best for your PC and there's always some puppy version that does OK.

EDIT: Main iso is mirrored by ally on archive.org, I updated the download link

Hi dejan555.
I am using LupuPlus_5.2.8-5 now, but the dpup 484 and 485 were my favorites for a very long time. When support for Lenny disappeared, and Debian took for ages to get it into archives, I made the switch. But some of my machines definitely prefer the dpups, so they are still frequently used. 484beta4 as late as yesterday, in fact!

BTW, your link http://meownplanet.net/dejan/isos/dpup485-pets/ does not work.

In answer to dejan's question:

Yes, please continue to make the dpup484-485 series available.

dpup485 is still the best and smootest fit for this desktop computer!
(AMD 1800+ single core with NVIDIA MX4400 card & 2Gb RAM).

I tried many others (Puppies & Linux'es) on it, but either the newer kernels
or the newer X.org's create some type of weirdness on the machine.

So I do use dpup485 regularly.

Regards.

musher0
