Subject description: HowTo
 

You need around 60 MB free diskspace.
It will install to an own folder, so your existing Wine-settings are not affected.

Click on the gslapt desktop icon.
Click on "refresh" to update the packagelist.
In the searchfield, enter "cabextract", and install it.

Then download:
http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/downloads/ies4linux-2.0.5.tar.gz
UPDATE:
or better get a newer version here:
http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/downloads/


Extract it.
You can right-click in XFE , -> extract here.
Click on the new folder ies4linux-2.0.5, and then on the icon to open the terminal in XFE.

Now enter:
./ies4linux

You will get some errors about tput, but can ignore them.
Simply confirm everything, but choose "n" for IE5 if you don't want it.
The 60 MB are needed for IE6 only, IE5 in addition will need more.

After most was extracted, the script hangs, telling you "finishing last steps" or similar (It was german on my german Muppy).

Now hit CTRL-C (german: STRG-C).
It now should continue to install Flash.
Finally it tells you to start
/root/.ies4linux/bin/ie6

I dragged this file on my Desktop in Rox-Filer.
When I clicked on it, the IE looked broken.
After I restarted Puppy, it looked correct.

PostPosted: Fri 16 Mar 2007, 18:41    Post subject: Need IE and activex to use Airport free Wifi
Subject description: Would like to boot puppy from USB flash drive/CDROM at ALL open Wifi locations
 

I believe the airport in Albuquerque, NM requires ActiveX to authenticate the wireless MAC address. This forces the use of Windows and IE to use the free Wifi access. For security reasons I would like to boot into puppy when using ANY unencrypted free Wifi service. Is it possible to install IE6/7 with activeX onto a generic puppy iso installation? Of course I would only use IE just long enough to get access to the network then use puppy's SeaMonkey, Firefox or Opera.

Any pointers will be greatly appreciated!
Regards
Ron

If you want to use IES4LINUX by itself, this procedure is good.
Just note that it generates an own Wine environment for C drives etc...

I was in the case that another Windows program needed IE to do rendering.

I had to combine the Wine environment from IE with the one of Wine.

here is a modified installer, it allows to install the IE6 in a current wine installation.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=29996

But I did not test this well, so I don't know, if other applications can use this IE.
Backup your savefile first (!)

ok it is running ok now, no excess CPU or remnant process consumption after close:

i had to recompile wine with the following patch REVERSED:

Code:



--- a/dlls/kernel32/sync.c
+++ b/dlls/kernel32/sync.c

@@ -270,9 +270,19 @@ HANDLE WINAPI RegisterWaitForSingleObjectEx( HANDLE hObject,

Once patch has been rolled back it runs well.

I did try ies4linux and got ie6 working, but did not test extensively or use. I found that Crossover Office installed and ran internet explorer 6 quite well. I did not test extensively but I ran and isntalled flash and real alterantive without problems. Crossover Office offers a free trial and the program itself costs from $39 as I recall. I purchased it to make a contribution to the wine project, but Crossover also offers a program where if one becomes an "advocate" for a particular program, tests it in crossover with each new release and writes ane valuation of how the program works, one can get free crossover. I am the advocate for K-Meleon for instance.

Just out of curiosity playdayz (and pardon me Mark for hijacking the thread for a moment, please?) but how did K-Meleon work in CrossOver? If you could be specific (for obvious reasons as a former dev) I'd appreciate it. Wink

While I'm not interested in the CrossOver programme myself, I'm VERY GLAD to see that you've done this---and I do wish others would as well. That's a very interesting "sub-programme" they're offering about becoming an advocate, and actually they're giving the person quite a bit of payback when you consider the price of the software, eh? Being PAID $39 to write a review? Whoa! I wished when I had been a Freelance Editorialist for my local state newspaper I'd had made as much! (Emphasis on the word "FREE" in "freelance" there!) Ah! But the notority and fame made up for it, albeit it ever-so-brief. Wink LOL!

Again, thanks playdayz. If you'd like, so that we take up no more of Mark's thread, you can either pvt msg me how K-Meleon worked, or email me at the link below. Just if you use the email write "re: K-Meleon in CrossOver" in the subject line so I'll remember. Damn memory of mine! -sigh-

Amicalement/Cheers!
