Joe, Here is a dillo 3.0.2 made for lucid.

ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/dillo-3.0.2-lucid.pet
I have slightly tested it, but not https:.


Thanks, I downloaded this Dillo and it installed perfectly. I am typing this from the new Dillo. Now to see what it will (or won't) do.

I've spent about four hours now searching the forum and the web, trying figure out how to enable the https in Dillo.

In the Dillo FAQ it states: (Quote)
If you want to enable it (e.g to read forums in https), then use

./configure --enable-ssl

Then recompile and reinstall. (End Quote)

How do I actually do this? Where do I go to edit this? I tried the console (didn't work) and tried looking in dillorc but couldn't really figure it out.

Anyone have any hints?
Thanks,
Joe

Dear Joe

Compiling is rather involved. For PL, it means downloading devxxx sfs (squashed file system) modules for the particular PL version you have. For information on compiling there is a particular forum:

Forum index » Advanced Topics » Additional Software (PETs, n' stuff) » compiling
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/index.php?f=66


I'm not sure if I would want to try compiling Dillo myself, it would appear it would need various dependencies and fixes. You could also search the forums and see if there is an ssl enabled version already available, there is also a forum for requests. As other replies indicate there are alternate lightweight browsers that may offer something. Dillo is very fast for basic rendering of pages but perhaps not as suitable for webmail sites etc that tend to rely on CSS/JavaScript and so on.

Thanks for the reply, Peterm321. It looks like this one is a bit over my head for now. I'm back in school now for Spring Quarter (Biomedical Equipment Repair) so I'm going to be too busy for the next few months to try learning something this involved.

I have been using Opera, and it seems to be significantly faster than the heavyweights on my slow satellite internet (it's faster than dialup but not by very much). The desire for a lightweight dialup browser was an attempt to help some relatives who are stuck with dialup for the time being. Reckon they will just have to wait.

Thanks to all who chimed in to help, I really like Opera thus far. I will re-visit this idea later.
Joe

Hello Joe...

I used to be on very slow lines my self...

For me Firefox was the solution...

The version MUST be able to run ImageBlock addon for Firefox as a minimum. Might not be supported in the latest versions..

Then off course adblock, flashblock and disable " Firefox prefetch"

To stop all java or scripts, NoScripts is also good.

Then you have a scaled down Firefox where you can customize your internet experience, but also browse at a very low cost using mobile connections etc.

To disable Firefox updates is also important.

also i quickly came learned to DOWNLOAD flash video, instead of streaming it, due to slow lines and lagging.

As for Puppy Linux there is no such thing as any automatic updates so your in full control.

Also I learned not to write emails while being online, or even reading them, as once paying pr MB of internet usage, your money is lost little by little just by the connection being present, so I just went in to my webmail, copied the text over to AbiWord, read it there and made the reply offline, went online and pasted it. In this way i saved HUGE amounts of small money every day and my internet bundle went like ten times more fare:-)

I prefer a scaled down Firefox, due to bookmarks and also the fact that you might be somewhere sometimes where there is free and faster internet, so you can turn on the heavy stuff as images...
