Did you check the md5?

Yes, and it was OK.

I had no problems mount/unmounting the ISO in Rox, it's on a FAT32 filesystem if that matters.

It won't mount using ROX either.
The ISO file is in a folder on an NTFS filesystem.

Don't know about updating the savefile

I can choose to manually copy or save the changes made during the session [back to the pupsave file], either during the session or at shutdown/reboot, or not at all.

doesn't Slacko use a Slackosave.xxx where LuPu uses a lupusave?

Correct.
In this case I'd be using a different version of Slacko to the original version of Slacko.
The personal save file is named slackosave.3fs, but can it be used for 2 [fundamentally?] different Slacko versions?

Oscar- there must be a simpler way!

I downloaded.

I unpacked (in /tmp).

Where does the renaming come in?

And do I have to go through /usr/lib/seamonkey/ and check each file against the unpacked one, and replace the old by the new one if they are different?


What I have done is actually very simple. In fact the only renaming I did was as a precaution. I renamed (rather than deleting) the existing seamonkey directory in /usr/lib (which is the old version) to seemonkeyold in case there was any problem and I needed to restore back (which I didn't - it has worked OK on 2 machines running Slacko 5.3.3 so I have now deleted).

The downloaded tarball unpacks as a single directory named seamonkey (so does not need renaming). This can be done anywhere. After the rename just move the new directory into /usr/lib so it replaces the renamed one. No need to do anything with the files inside it.

I guess you could say all you need to do is download (to /mnt/home or /root), delete (seamonkey folder from /usr/lib), unpack (to /usr/lib).

You will find that features such as automatic and manual updates and the crash reporter are now included. Profile information such as bookmarks and settings are not lost because they are stored elsewhere.

It's a long shot, but try copying the .iso to a FAT32 or ext(x) filesystem? Sometimes NTFS and Puppy (well, all Linux) don't get along.

Here's the thing...
Every other time previous to this failure to mount the ISO...
When I was normally able to mount various ISO files with no problem...
ALL such ISO files are on this very same partition that uses an NTFS filesystem.
So it would seem that Puppy has had no problem with this NTFS filesystem.

Kevin- I Googled "Seamonkey", top hit was the Seamonkey site, clicked on "Download", .........

EDIT: Chose "save" rather than "Run". It downloaded the file into the /tmp directory.

Seamonkey download page is here:-
http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases

You can even select a language option from the list of Linux versions down the right-hand side of the page.

Appears that LibreOffice 3.60 is avialable. Wondering if it can be made available in the repository?

Thanks

Do not be concerned about the beta quality tag.
01micko states he will keep it that way because of future adjustments that may be needed to program.

The reason I disallowed usb in the original version is for 2 reasons.
1) slow media and can cause errors
2) most usb installs are on FAT partitions, symlinks are unsupported with FAT so the build fails.

I'll make an sfs soon.

Downloaded from http://download.mozilla.org/?product=seamonkey-2.11&os=linux&lang=en-US, installed as above, worked like a champ. The lady of the house is no longer bothered by the red nag banner!

Subject description: boot problem with SD card
 

I installed Slacko on a SD-card but my computer stops booting with the following prompt:
puppy_slacko_5.3.3.2.sfs not found
Computer: Shuttle barebone XS35V2 (Atom D525 2x1,8 GHz, 4 GB RAM), no HDD
Somwhere in the forum I read about a bug that booting from a USB medium with no HDD built in would not work. Does it affect slacko, too?
