PostPosted: Thu 14 Jan 2010, 16:06    Post subject: minimum requirements for chromebeta2 ?
Subject description: thought i'd like to try chrome, but...
 

hello

boot line regarding options at <f2> is grayed out

took two boots before drives/partitions showed up on desktop

shutdown/reboot both led to freeze requiring manual poweroff
if the cd in drive, if drive empty then browserlinux fell to prompt
then back to desktop, quickly.

could not connect to wireless lan but i'll try again on a different
box, same network, after i post this.

nice work, :: EDIT :: when i read this later it looked like
i was being sarcastic after a list of issues...not at all, the puplet
is full of good ideas, well executed. the menu entry, 'more...'
is a fine example of simplification without loss of services,
achieved with less keystrokes, brilliant! that machine has the
issues :: END EDIT :: cheers, mm

on a different compu browserlinux connected wirelessly
to the same network, same steps in wizard, same info supplied

it's a p2,266mhz,160mb-ram elderly toshiba laptop
...running chrome on a livecd was too slow to watch, so i i've
full-installed browserlinux and look forward to running it once
grub has learned how to find it; at the moment i get:

Error 2: bad file or directory type

cheers, mm

New version with the new Chrome 4.0.295.0

Much smaller (ISO only 73Mb) and, if possible, autoconnect network on first boot.

This version is based on puppy 4.1.2
(previous version 2 was 4.3.1)

PostPosted: Sun 17 Jan 2010, 18:10    Post subject: ! i'll try that, thanks martin
Subject description: 412 a good runner on this box
 

i've tried using the same boot params as work for the other pups
rather than the ones which didn't work but came along that is:
'pmedia=atahd nosmp' was replaced 'ro vga=normal nomce pfix-fsck,firest'

anyway i'll try installing the latest creation and see if i can boot it,
cheers, mm

Thanks - got it downloaded and burned. Booted LiveCD - works fine. Where is the 'universal installer'? I went to install and I can't find the installer in the 'more' menu of apps.

# puppyinstaller

PostPosted: Tue 19 Jan 2010, 21:29    Post subject: alas b3 doesn't connect wirelessly  

on older machine which connected w beta2, but wouldn't boot when installed, b3 boots from cd to a blank, black desktop...i thought, 'seriously minimal' right-clicked, saw a menu, tried connecting to familiar w-less network, all same same as worked before.
[marvell 88w8355 libertas 802.11 b/g]
failed, ended with this message [when i clicked 'details']:

output-of-'wpa_cli -i wlan0 status'

bssid=00:13:46:0a:74:e4
ssid=ATB1001
id=0
pairwise_cipher=TKIP
group_cipher=TKIP
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_state=GROUP_HANDSHAKE


so i switched to a newer machine with builtin w-less
which b3 detected but failed to connect, with the message
wpa_state=associating...connection point not associated
[atheros ar5212 802.11abg nic]

then i put the marvell card in the external card slot
which worked a couple of weeks ago but b3
failed with the same message as on the older machine.

the newer machine gave the expected grey desktop
i haven't had a chance to try a wired connection yet

cheers,mm

Just downloaded this as it could be very interesting for a project I am working on.
I note that the latest version is based on pup 4.1.2 and not 4.3.1
Could you tell me the reason for this.
Thanks

I want Browserlinux Chrome as small as possible. If you like 4.3.1 (with SMP kernel) you can use Browserlinux Firefox.
What is the project you are working on?

Thanks for the quick reply.
I see that the 412 chrome version is 73MB whereas the previous 431 based FF is 77MB.

My query about why going back to a 412 base was whether we lose some ability to install to a wider range of hardware. I don't know the answer but suspect that 431 has slightly better capability there. Also a bit surprised that 412 offered much saving in size. Not doubting you at all, just expressing my slight surprise. Clearly to save 4MB you feel it's worth it.

I have 2 personal projects (very small and nothing as clever or as interesting as browserlinux) which need a very small linux base plus browser plus java. One is to run the eldy programme (senior citizen's very very simple interface) and the other...well can I keep that until I get past a proof of concept...don't want to embarass myself! Smile I was looking at tinycore but this may be more suitable.

Lastly, your web site offers a java.pet for download but the thread here suggest downloading java. Which do you suggest?

Thanks for this very nice pup and your help.
Dave

Download the original JAVA if you want the latest.

There is/was a Browserlinux Chrome based on 4.3.1. If you don't have this version: http://browserlinux.com/iso/browserlinuxchromeb2.iso (88Mb)

Succes!

Thanks for that.
I d/l chrome beta2 (based on 431) and now see it's quite a bit bigger than chrome beta3 (based on 412).
Cheers
