@Sailor Enceladus:

I can't remember if you woofed -- or not -- a slacko 32-bit from the
slackware-14.2 repos...

I tried to find it in this bazaar of a forum and couldn't...

Could you please confirm? Or contradict?
If positive, could you please provide a link? TIA

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

Hi musher0,

Merry Christmas to you too! Very Happy

It has been a while since I tried to woof slacko32 14.2, it seems the iso I had is exactly one years old Shocked Both my Atom Netbooks are running woofed Slacko 14.0 builds but am at my parents now for Christmas with my dad's 64-bit capable Core2Duo. I saw that norgo has been making a few 32-bit isos too since so I tried 32-bit slacko-current for a while instead, until every browser in it seemed to require gtk3. Perhaps norgo can provide a link to their iso? Smile Or maybe I can try another later.

On the 64-bit iso (r6717) I did encounter a freeze last night with jwm on the Core2Duo Intel Graphics laptop and had to Ctrl-Alt-Backspace. I assume recompiling jwm 2.3.6 with the fix here would eliminate it again. Also I wanted to try the program "Download Chrome, Vivaldi, or Opera" in Setup and it said I wasn't connected to the internet, even though browsing in Palemoon is working. Did anyone else have this issue? I imagine these things would affect 32-bit builds too but would have to test.

Hi Sailor. Thank you for the update on slacko64.
I think you went to a newer version of the 4.9 kernel, but I still have the hanging for a minute or more before getting to X.
I reported it in octobre. Remember. I stil can't find why it happens.

Download a browser - error

yes I already detected this error but I thought this a regional problem.

The reason and solution for this:

dl_browser.sh gets information whether Internet connection is established or not from check_Internet
/usr/sbin/check_internet is pinging www.duckduckgo.com
unfortunately this always fails

solution:
open /usr/sbin/check_internet with an editor and change line 11

from www.duckduckgo.com to www.google.com ( as example )

now browser download should work again


I compiled a gtk2 version of seamonkey 2.49.4 ( only german language )
you could download this version and install the desired xpi language pack
seamonkey-2.49.4.en-GB.langpack.xpi

My latest 32 bit version of slacko 700 is from 2018-10-04
but I'm not at home to upload at the moment, so be patient

I downloaded and installed slacko-6.9.9.9-uefi-k4.4-PAE-PM-LO.iso to
the hard drive of my Lenovo ThinkCentre desktop.
Updated PPM and applied all the Update notices - Slackware bugfixes
Added applications with PPM + compiled latest Smplayer/Smtube
Changed kernels,installed proprietary Nvidia driver:

This method worked well on this pc, doesn't always work well, can be a
total waste of time, must have time to spare (potenially waste)

I used the burst mode of tas to get the screenshot, picked best of 6
screenshots it produced.

Hi norgo.

I do not know German. I do not know what the items in the menu mean.
Could you kindly explain to me the steps to follow to install the language pack?

Thank you in advance.

@musher0
1. download seamonkey-2.49.4-de-slk700-i686.pet and install it
2. download seamonkey-2.49.4.en-GB.langpack.xpi ( example ) and save it in a folder
3. launch seamonkey
4. choose "Datei" -> "Datei öffnen ..." -> navigate to download folder, select the xpi language package and click open
5. now a notification window will appear "Software Installation ist deaktiviert, klicken Sie auf Aktivieren und versuchen Sie es erneut " => click the button "Aktivieren"
6. now software installation is activated => rerun step number 4
7. software installation window should appear now => click "Jetzt installieren" button
8. click "Bearbeiten" -> "Einstellungen ..." => "Erscheinungsbild" select desired language
9. restart seamonkey

Hello all.

To NOT display the message:
Quote:
"WARNING: terminal not fully functional"
in slacko-700, when using the less text reader and a
couple of other CLI utilities, open a console and type:
Code:
cd /usr/share/terminfo/r
ln -s rxvt $PWD/rxvt-unicode

Also make sure that the TERM variable in both /etc/profile AND in
/root/.bashrc is set as
Code:
export TERM=rxvt
.
I wasted half a day researching this bug. I still can't explain the technical
reason, but it has to do with an utility called < tput >, which I had never
heard of. This article had the key to the solution.

Anyway, search duckduckgo all you want for linux "WARNING: terminal is
not fully functional"; it's "tput" you have to look for.

IHTH.

Hello again, people.

We might as well bring on board the most recent less as of this
writing, v. 530. I added the correction above in this pet.

I compiled it expressly for slacko-700, with the very simple and usual
Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr

To view the help file for less, one types:
Code:
less --help
or presses h if already viewing a text file.

It works fine on slacko-700. You are welcome to test it on other Pups.

The official site's short Changes file for this version is included in this pet
under /usr/share/doc/less.

Enjoy!

Subject description: Great news! The nimble Links-2.17 web browser now available for slacko-700!
 

Hello again.

This was definitely needed! I mean a small and nimble browser for
slacko-700! So here you go: please download and install all three items
in the following directory:
http://augras.eu/puppy_linux/?dir=musher0/Slacko-700/links-2.17_slacko-700
There is of course links-2.17, the latest as of this writing. Slackware repos
have v. 2.12, ha!

Compiled expressly for slacko-700, with this config formula:
Quote:

./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man --enable-graphics
---------------------------------------------------------
Configuration results:
Event handler: LIBEVENT
IPv6: YES
Supported compression: BZIP2 LZMA
SSL support: OPENSSL
UTF-8 terminal: YES
GPM support: YES
Graphics enabled: YES
Graphics drivers: FB X
Image formats: GIF PNG XBM JPEG
OpenMP: YES
---------------------------------------------------------

The other two archives are required by links, slacko-700 did not provide
them ex-factory.

Enjoy!
You can now pass GO and collect $200! Wink (Those will have to be CAD$,
but still!) Laughing
