01micko,

Thanks for Firefox explanation.
Seems to be more version options on Mozilla web site.
http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/all.html

Quote:
Firefox ESR

Who is it for?

Firefox ESR is intended for groups who deploy and maintain the desktop environment in large organizations such as universities and other schools, county or city governments and businesses.

Who is it not for?

Individual users who always want the latest features, performance enhancements and technologies in their browser without waiting for them to become available in ESR several development cycles later.


I think I fall under the "who is it not for?"
I now understand what the Firefox ESR is all about, Just not sure if that is the version of Firefox I want to use.
Just wondering if you understood what Firefox ESR was all about?
Your choice and I respect that!

I learned something.

Thank you!

Edit:
Updated Firefox ESR using the update manager. Very nice addition to Puppy this "Update Manager".

Hardinfo program.

The Hardinfo in Slacko 5.6 seems to be missing something.
Below is output of Hardinfo in Slacko 5.6 compared to output in Lucid 528.

Notice the difference in info for USB devices.

01micko,

Something you may want to look at.
Slacko 5.6 and Precise 5.7.1 missing kernel modules

Hello Everyone,

slacko-5.6 non-pae

Has anyone have any issues with their partitions show out of order for the numbering?

sdb10 and sdb11 are next to sdb1. How do I fix this?

Cheers

There's nothing to fix. "sdb2" DOES come after "sdb10" in the standard lexicographic sorting order.

"2" and "10" in this context are NOT numbers, they are character strings that happen to consist of digits, which is not the same thing.

In the installing the Peazip by PPM is missing libgmp.so.3 library.

We can fix it by going to /usr/lib, open a terminal here and write.

ln -s /usr/lib/libgmp.so.10.0.5 libgmp.so.3

Making this symbolic link works.

See you.

PostPosted: Wed 23 Oct 2013, 05:48    Post subject: Love Slacko! Wine Request for Noobs  

FIrst off, Slacko 5.6 has become my favorite Puppy very fast! Everything works, and there's no hacks involved! (Someone did the hacking for us and made a nice system, thanks!)

One thing in using Wine 1.5 off the Slacko ibiblio repo. Everything's listed in the menu for Wine from what I see except browsing the C:/ drive, which could drive a new user a little crazy. (I know where it is and found it, so don't worry for me, but including that menu item in the packaging would be a great help.

I hope that with Barry switching Woof to maintenance this doesn't mean the end of Slacko, It may be what takes Puppy to the next level, IMO. It's neat, tidy, and has what Puppy users are looking for, as well as general computer users.

It's pretty much "prime time".

The biggest enhancement in this version is full support of the f2fs filesystem.
Yes,sure, we are very happy. Wireless connection is difficult.
That's is a loose.

Wireless is fine with me, with the non-hacking solution "give it ten seconds", running fine on my netbook with windows friendly parts

Just dowloaded Slacko 5.6. I can't install anything as the Install button does nothing. When I run /usr/local/petget/pkg_chooser.sh I see that the script creates index.html in /usr/local/petget/ and immediately deletes it. What's up?

When I select menu Setup > Sfs manager dowload and install sfs files: "You must install Puppy before using this tool". Hmm... leaves me scratching my head.

I know this is a stupid question but-- Did you create a save file?

No. First run. I expect the Package Manager to work without a save file.

PostPosted: Sat 26 Oct 2013, 13:34    Post subject: Problem running browsers as spot  

I normally run my browser as spot. In Slacko, the browser opens normally, but there is a long delay before opening the first web page, during which I get in the console the following messages:
Code:
(exe:12664): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_dbus_connection_call_sync_internal: assertion `G_IS_DBUS_CONNECTION (connection)' failed

 ** (exe:12664): CRITICAL **: Unable to contact dconf service

 (exe:12664): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_dbus_connection_add_filter: assertion `G_IS_DBUS_CONNECTION (connection)' failed 
 [printed ten times!]

Finally after ~45s, the web page opens and everything works.

This happens with any browser I have tried (Opera, iron, Chromium, Firefox). It does not happen running browsers as root. I saw this: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=87210&start=30

I got it, ha ha!!
Wrong permissions on /dev/urandom.
chmod 666 /dev/urandom fixes the problem for Firefox/Seamonkey.
Chromium needs also: chmod 1777 /dev/shm
(In 5.5 /dev/urandom has 666 and /dev/shm has 1777 as well.)

but those permissions were already set. I also tried jamesbond's script run-as-spot: same result.

This doesn't happen in Precise or Wheezy. Any suggestions for me?
Thanks.
