I'm delighted to see that they are primarily PA-RISC packages. That makes me happy. I just don't have a place to put the C8000 right now or I'd grab a few (my HP-UX jones is satisfied by the 9000/350 for the moment).

Decided to give this a try on my Indigo2. It installs fine and from a performance point of view, it's still nippy enough for me and makes browsing Nekochan much more of a pleasant experience than Firefox or SeaMonkey.

Only problem I've noticed with it so far is that the menus appear to be a bit screwed up. Any idea what could be causing this?

I'm still examining this problem, it only happens if you are using antialiased fonts. You can avoid it by enabling a theme in your dillorc. By default there is no dillorc in your .dillo directory. You can copy or edit the system dillorc file: /usr/nekoware/etc/dillo/dillorc.

Awesome! I'll try that when I get time, but might not be for a week or two as my computer room is in the process of becoming a guest room for a few days :(

Installed on Tuesday but still see blurred menus - fixed by choosing a theme, as you suggested. (I had written "partly fixed" [mis-]remembering still getting blurred right-click menus but just checked and it seems fine now)

Many thanks for the update - I'm used to using Dillo as a quick go-to browser on Pi and my underpowered (for Firefox) Linux-386 box, so very glad to see the IRIX version staying abreast.

The Dillo mailing list has been humming like a hive the last few weeks, not to give out any spoilers but the most active topic has been "what's currently broken in dillo"... :shock:

not a bad thing to hunt down probs. another thing to get sorted is the ssl warnings. they either need to add a "don't ask again" checkbox or keep the output to the terminal. i removed a bunch of them for my 6.2 build and i reckon for this one diegel did so, too.
oh and they need to correct the changelog. it does not work with mipspro but only gcc.

Just to note that I've tried it here and the newer build also did not fix the issue, but selecting a theme did fix it. It also gave me chance to turn the messages off to stop the console window going bananas every time I open a page with it.

Thanks again for your work with this!

An updated libXft-2.3.2 is in beta now. It is a mipspro build. If you have installed the previous build please update, the former package is faulty.
