Hello, all.

Development of links is pretty quick these days, isn't ?! Smile

Links2, version 2.12, was published Sept. 20th, four days ago. Here's a
compilation I made of it on Puppy Precise 5.4.3. I have added the scripts
and *.desktop files from the 2.10 pet above.

Works fine on PPrecise-5.4.3 on this 32-bit machine; should work just as
well on later Puppies. Keep us posted?

The pet archive for links2-2.12 is available from:
-- https://www.adrive.com/public/A3zcsm/links-2.12.pet --

Enjoy!

Links is a very fast and handy browser!
I compiled 2.12 with uclibc and linked static so this build [3.7Mb] should work on most Puppy versions (no additional libraries needed).
Updated 20150930: Replaced tar.gz with pet-package - added lzma as compression method.

Where should I extract the files to?

Thanks,

As well, goingnuts, you may want to change the name of your archive.
Downloading it, I nearly squished the original source, which has the same name.

Extract it where ever you like. There is a binary and a launcher script. Just click on the script and off you go.

Here's a console (text mode only) binary for Slacko 6.x 32-bit based distros: links-2.12t_slk600.sfs (380 KB)

I started playing with links2 in ThinSlacko 5.5 and thought it was pretty nice and speedy. Then I typed "links" from the terminal and realized the text version is where it's at! Especially for reading long articles without the clutter. Nice browser for when you want to only use about 3MB of RAM to get your reading fix. Can even Exit to Prompt and run it that way (BBS nostalgia Smile ).

@OscarTalks
I've installed version 2.12 posted by goingnuts and it works find though I agree it's a bit weird. I have also tried your wheezy version of 2.14 in the latest update of lucid but it did not work. Can you tell me if either of the other two builds would be more suitable for lucid or would it have to be compiled in the updated version of lucid?

Regards,

Ken.

Hello Ken,
Because of the earlier glibc and possibly some other library versions it is probably best to compile in Lucid if you want to run in Lucid. I have uploaded a build which you can test if you are interested.
