Run that defect SM from console (type mozilla) and tell what are error messages.

Watchdog, thanks for the info.

If there are no adverse effects to installing nobus, the method I
used simply involves the use of two pets ... a method useful for
noobs that could then be generally recommended.

Linuxcbon, I have no interest in the outdated SM. It has been
replaced with a up to date SM that works well .. as I have posted.

Sage, as I said to Linuxcbon, I no longer have a problem after
updating SM.

Can you anyway do the test with old SM from shell ? It's good to know what happens and what it is...

linuxbon: I think he's trying to say 'thank you for taking the time' , but maybe he wasn't brought up well with good manners?

How about building Wary with only a light browser like Dillo, plus Uget for those on dial-up?
Then anyone can get whatever full-featured browser they want.
And BarryK won't have to deal with any SM-related problems.
Aren't they already doing something like that with Lucid?

Dillo is fast but not complete, no javascript and no css float.
Did you try it at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=52534

Once again, let me explain one prob already explained, I have RTL8111/8168B :
1/ /lib/firmware has 6 files, none seems needed.
2/ r8169 is loaded, but it should be r8168. See www.realtek.com LINUX driver for kernel 3.x and 2.6.x and 2.4.x is r8168-8.035.00.tar.bz2
So for this, r8168 should be compiled and r8169 blacklisted. (Note r8169 works too).

( I guess you installed this : skype_static-2.1.0.81 )
Can you click on "console" icon and type skype ? Tell what error messages are shown ?
(there is an alternative to skype if you have sip, it's linphone http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=79803 )
