Has anyone installed the new Brave Browser on their system? I tried unpacking their tarball but there's no readme on it. It works interesting on my tablet so I was wondering about it.

Apologies. I'm now reading it requires node.js to do a "npm install"... so I am at a loss.

Not based on a quick search unless I am doing it wrong. I'm using X-Slacko and checking the Slacko 14.1 repo....

As 14.1 doesn't have a 5.x copy, you'd have to build it.

I'd venture to guess that an SFS built on Tahr would probably run aboard Slacko 6.3.

I *think* I managed this. EDIT: no, I didn't, as npm doesn't seem to operate outside the npm folder, I know nothing about git, and this is really too much as I'm just trying to try out a browser[img]http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=95155[/img]

EDIT #2: I can feel myself re-installing my system already

EDIT #3: The system survives. The browser install does not. I guess I'll just wait till this becomes a .deb or something

EDIT #4: Hopefully someone builds an SFS based on Tahr? I think I've had enough of weird installation processes for today.

Don't sweat that output.. I highly doubt the instance in your screenshot managed anything other than to not run.

This would be a correct assertion. Thx. Here's hoping for a SFS

Perhaps..

If you're going to sample anything, do so in /tmp. Just note my last screenshot. Wink

OHHH

Well I got further with it in /tmp/ and ended here, so I think my adventure has ended.

You'd most likely fair better with NetSurf if it's a new browser you're after. SlackOnly's got a build.
