Maybe it froze for me becuase my glxgears numbers are so low.
Code:

371 frames in 5.0 seconds = 74.057 FPS
375 frames in 5.0 seconds = 75.000 FPS
375 frames in 5.0 seconds = 75.000 FPS
375 frames in 5.0 seconds = 74.998 FPS


I will search the repo for an xorg-high or mesa pet and try again if I find it.

Firefox 7.0.1 benchmarks fine in Saluki without additional video drivers.
I wanted to do the test in Midori becuase I wanted to compare the results with other browsers...ah well.

I have created an Nvidia pet in Saluki-13.


I tried this with a 8600 GT, it gave me twice the frame rate 40000 in 5 seconds than did my manual install of the driver, but it was unstable and crashed the system, Confused I tried twice to get it too work, but gave up in preference to a manual installation.


Geoffery, were you running glxgears when it crashed or were you running something else? Did you try installing the driver in a fresh savefile?
Hmmm.. I don't know what the problem could be. I compiled it on an AMD Athlon dual-core, and am wondering if it matters what cpu one compiles it on. I will do some experimenting to see if I can figure out the problem.


Tman,

Yeah, it was a fresh install, glxgears wasn't running at the time, I have compiz and cairo dock working, when it froze I was moving a compiz wobbly window and turning the power off was the only option left for me.

I'm now using NVIDIA-Linux-x86-209.10.run, I will have to try 209.20 manually installed, a friend of mine tried the pet, but his experience with it was a slower frame rate than he previously had Confused,
a manual install of NVIDIA-Linux-x86-209.20.run yield a frame rate better than Ubuntu could offer while running WoW in Wine 1.4, strange.

Oh the difference when I do a install is I don't select nvidia in the xorgwizard choose, but when I installed the pet package I did, normally
I just probe select the res and xwin, this could be a factor, I'll test it some more, this time keeping a record of outcomes to compare.

Just tried Peacekeeper in Midori ...... got about halfway through before Saluki froze up. Running the Nvidia driver and fairly good numbers from glxgears.
Just for comparison purposes, just ran Peacekepper on Windows 7 and Chrome ....scored 2600.

Geoffery,

I am not sure if this is a factor or not, but I am curious; what cpu do you have? And I always choose the Nvidia driver manually, after I install the pet; Xorgwizard sometimes chooses the wrong driver.

Thanks James..I guess it's a Midori thing. Okay I'll stop complaining about Midori now, lest I incur someone's wrath.. yikes!

Unfortunately, I am still getting the following error message in Midori:
Code:

MozPlugger: Error: Failed to execute m4.
Mozplugger: M4 parsing of config generated error


This error is repeatable with the following steps:
1) type midori in the console
2) in Midori's address bar, type murga linux forum and press enter
3) click on the appropriate link that takes you to the murga forum. For me, it was the 2nd link.

Installing Pemasu's mozplugger pet still doesn't resolve the issue. (thanks for trying, Pemasu)

On the positive side, Midori 0.4.4 does seem to be more stable; it hasn't crashed on me so far, and I just discovered that it handles HTML5..nice!!



I tried this and get no errors at all with Midori 0.4.4, works fine, seems stable, yeah HTML5 works ok, plays webm video.

installed Midori 4.4 over 4.3 and now is stable in a number of sites that was crashing before.
However looks like I can not add new bookmarks. Adding them only shows in the side panel but not in the menu, and after restarting midori they are gone from there too.
Is it just me?

Edit Changed the ~/.config/midori/* permissions from 644 to 664 and now it behaves. eg sticks on restart but only shows in the menus after restart Confused


It worked ok for me out of the box, bookmarks show in all the right places and stick

Do you get this with pfix=ram. I can't reproduce it. What happens if you run m4 in the terminal?


Yes, it happens for me in pfix=ram mode as well.
My frugals pups are installed in a linux partition, not an ntfs partition. This one is using a .2fs saved file.

When I type m4 in the terminal, I get
Code:
bash: m4: command not found.

Nevermind about the clock settings..I figured out how to change the time.

I should add that when I ran the benchmark test on the following site, Saluki froze and I could not even quit using CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE..

Ah, I bet m4 is in the devx. Got it.

mesa/xorg-high is installed by default.

ok, thanks. I installed the compiz pet and added a workspaceswitcher to the panel to see compiz effects during workspace-switching, but I couldn't switch between virtual desktops. Anyone else have that problem?

Sub_title: Midori vs Firefox in Ubuntu
 

I couldn't get the benchmark test of Midori to complete in Saluki, it
would get to the last minute and go no further.It didn't lock up the
computer but just stopped.
I have the Ubuntu 12.04 beta 1 64 bit version running on this pc which
is about 25% slower than the one that I tested firefox in Saluki,
I installed Midori and the benchmark completed successfully.

So, Midori is faster than firefox 11 in the benchmark test.

thanks, Billtoo. It makes sense as it feels faster than Firefox. How about comparisons between Midori vs Opera vs Chrome?

Workspaceswitcher works for me without compiz. Once compiz is installed, it no longer functions properly.


Okay back to Saluki frugal install...

Confirmed. I no longer get the error message with midori once the devx is loaded.

Okay I think I'm done with testing for tonight..signing off.

Workspaceswitcher does work but it has to be set to 1 Workspace.
then through compiz set more Workspaces's, works for me it might take a couple of tries

--edit
turn compiz off set to one workspace then turn compiz on and set more workspaces through compiz
