Hallo, Oscar.

I've just downloaded and installed your 'slimjet-7.0.1.0-slack14.0'.sfs package, in rg66's X-Slacko 2.3.2 (this is the one based on vanilla 570). Absolutely straightforward, and no hassles at all.

No terminal messages, or anything silly like that at all. I'd originally tried with the generic tar.xz package from the Slimjet site, and kept getting the 'bad NaCl helper ack' thing, so gave up on that one. Couldn't quite see what the problem was there, since I also run your Chrome 45 package here too, and already have libgconf2, etc.

Then I tried the .deb package. That didn't want to know at all. I know it shouldn't work in Slacko at all by rights, but I have a few .deb packages running on here quite happily.....including my printer driver package. (Strangely, I tried that as the .rpm version when I first set X-Slacko up, and it wouldn't install!)

Then, upon reading your posts here, I found the the link to your SFSes, and Bob's your uncle! Sorted.

Thanks very much. I've replaced an elderly version of Chromium (36.0.1985), which I kept as a stand-by, in case Chrome threw a wobbly.....not that it ever has, but every time you fire it up, you keep getting nagged to upgrade.....

Will report back if, as & when any issues rear their heads.

Cheers! Appreciated.


Mike. Wink

Just wanted to add that I'd no idea that Slimjet auto-updates PepperFlash..! That being the case, I'm seriously considering replacing Chrome right through the kennel; it might look a wee bit different.....but who cares? Functionality like that is worth having.

Add that to Geoff's Linux Flash Updater (for FireFox/PaleMoon).....and that's one thing I shan't need to bother about any more. Nice one!

Thanks again, Oscar.

well wel well .... slimjet is
slimjet-6.0.8.0.sfs (77M) . that is not slimboat ! it will freeze laptops with 512MB,In fact i don't know; I have to test it, first with my 4GB laptop (4processors)
We are not missing browsers, really, one could find hapiness easily...
Links for our programming experts, QtWeb for fun, seamonkey & firefox for Mamas and Papas.
why browsers are getting bigger and bigger ? We are browsing always the same sites.. Games perhaps..
My criteria are two levels
low i can read videos
High i can upload videos on Youtube
Now, i am browsing with Firefox 3.6, that the reason why i was searching if brand new stuff was available (to enjoy a little bit Slackos and co, desesperate Slackos).
Error mouting sfs (slacko 5.7, enjoyed version s57-2016eee.iso: 144 M )
I will download version speciale Slacko...

Do you have swap enabled on your computer with 512 MB of ram?

slimboat-1.1.44.sfs: 21 M not 80
swap should never be used, it's for temporary excess in RAM,

Some users use swap as RAM added..
But in fact their Puppy is no longer a Puppy, its speed becomes the hard disk speed, with the processor permanently loading and unloading stuff in and out the ram.
Imagine ou french supersonic Concorde having to land and take off ten times between Paris and New York, because there are to many passengers boarded. that is exactly the same.
But now, i am on a Medion, ram 4GB, no problem, slimjet will do it... If this Slacko loads the SFS Evil or Very Mad

Slimjet is now up to version 7.0.7.0

On some older machines with low spec I do find that it gives the "Aw,Snap" error somtimes if you are trying to load a heavy website. I think all this is just the harsh reality of progress in computing and the internet.

On low RAM computers I would recommend using some swap but set the swappiness to favour the RAM and only use swap if needed. This should prevent total crash or freeze.

SlimBOAT is still very useful so long as you have an up-to-date browser available as well when you need it for certain websites. Last ever version was 1.1.54 available here:-

Copy.com storage will be closing on 01st May 2016 so any of my larger and/or experimental packages will be moving to another host. I have used Yandex Disk in the past so may go back to that or may look for another option.

Got to agree with you there, Pelo. I've just installed QTWeb to Slacko 570, running on a 16 GB SanDisk Cruzer Fit 'nano' flash drive. Super lightweight.....great fun, indeed. Curiously, however, the 'Edit' & 'Quote' buttons at the top of your posts appear to be missing. I guess I'll have to check dependencies, see what should be there.....and isn't.

EDIT: No need; I've downloaded the .pet version of 3.8.4-2 from the French Forum, as you linked to here:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=882518#882518

'Edit' & 'Quote' buttons now showing, and working nicely. Thanks!

SlimJet version 9.0.0.0 is now available
based on Chromium 49.0.2623.75
still comes bundled with Pepper Flash 20.0.0.306
but is now auto downloading and recognising Pepper Flash 21.0.0.197 in the 32bit version. This gets stored in the sub-directory in the profile so obviously the browser looks in there for the latest version.

Hello backi,

With my modified packages if starting from terminal use the command slimjet

Alternatively you do get a menu entry which should work or a .desktop file with icon in /usr/share/applications which you can drag onto your desktop and rename.

Or are you saying that this version doesn't work but an earlier one did?
Could it be that your hardware is not supported?
It runs OK for me on various test machines.

Thanks Oscar ...
But earlier Version did not work .
Started with Terminal :
slimjet
aborted

Destop icon in /usr/share/application exists ...

Running an older Toshiba 3000 Satellite .
Intel Celeron M .

So seems workingn out of the box for most of the people here .
Maybe ....as you stated.... has to do with Hardware .

O.K ......Thanks for your reply Oscar.
