Please don't shoot the messenger, has nothing to do with neko's coding skills, this may be something I screwed up and not applicable to anyone else but the latest Firefox on an 800 Fuel, 6.5.30 ran about the same speed as the older one does on my O2 350. Was driving me nuts. I downgraded to the previous version, back to normal.

The latest Firefox works good for me. In my opinion same speed as the neko_firefox-2.0.0.20_opt. (Fuel 600mhz)
Thank you!

It should be using the libsqlite3.so from /usr/nekoware/lib/firefox-2.0.22pre.


Ah...

I installed neko_sqlite3 recently after a check to see what (if any) libraries were missing, and /usr/nekoware/lib/python2.5/lib-dynload/_sqlite3.so has a dependency on /usr/nekoware/lib/libsqlite.so.1.

I've posted neko_openssh-5.3p1.tardist to /beta.

I also put an alternate build in my contrib directory that utilizes the openssl-1.0 beta if anyone (besides myself) is feeling adventurous. The openssl-1.0 beta package (also in my contrib directory) contains a legacy subsystem for openssl-0.9.8 so it shouldn't break anything.

I upgraded from 5.1p1 to 5.3p1 today, everything looks to be running fine, as far as remote shell and pidgin X tunneling goes :)

I didn't feel brave enough to test these !

Thanks for the updates.

Just a quick note that I've also seen performance problems with the latest Firefox. When running, I've seen cases where my CPU usage jumps to 100% on each processor, with Xsgi also struggling to render the contents of native windows.

However, quitting and restarting Firefox often seems to clear this issue, even when resuming the session and so re-opening the same sites. I've also seen this occur on the very first site opened when freshly started in a new session. Firefox appears to have problems with anything involving text-entry, which appears to be a trigger for these problems.

Even when not misbehaving, Firefox seems noticeably slower than Seamonkey.

... although, after reading another thread, I've just installed FlashBlock, AdBlock Plus and NoSript and it's like another application entirely! Whilst still occasionally laggy in places, it's generally fast enough for daily use. Yay!

(Strangely, if I try to install any add-ons into Seamonkey, it always errors-out saying that it can't update the Chrome registry. All the files within my profile are writable (by me) so I'm not sure what's wrong here. Just me again, or some minor issue with neko_seamonkey?)

I have gotten the same error on a Windows machine with Seamonkey, a wild guess is that this happens when one tries to install a new add-on made for the never Firefox 3 system on an old Semonkey?
I haven't verified my guess with testing but at least the problem is not specific to the Nekoware build of Seamonkey.

My guess is that the issue with Seamonkey and add-ons is related to Seamonkey Bug #45701. I ran across the bug trying to track down similar problems with Seamonkey and AdBlock Plus <follow the link to "Why is it impossible to install Adblock Plus into a SeaMonkey profile?">.

If bug #45701 is the cause of the issue with add-ons, then it would appear the issue is endemic to all platforms where an add-on requires XPCOM <so it's not just the nekoware port>. The bug has "won't fix" status, so a direct resolution probably won't come until the next major revision <Seamonkey 2.0?>.

neko_python3-3.1.1.tardist is now in /beta
It does not supersede the current neko_python 2.5 since python3 is not compatible with older versions, hence the different name (python3) and version number (1). You can actually install both side by side.

I've created an account at python.org to issue bug reports so hopefully some IRIX stuff will trickle into the codebase soon.

All modules with dependencies are now separately listed and can be installed separately from the python3 core. Obviously Module zlib and bz2 are very valuable and needed, but only a few have sqlite3 or gdbm so they can opt-out for those modules.

I have sufficient ammo for python 2.6.3. but i rather return to firefox dev stuff. Been too long since i had a good look at that.

Go Blender 2.5, go!

I had bit of luck today and got some time to sit down in front of the Tzero. :)
I just installed python 2.5.2, openssh 5.3p1, and the latest firefox & thunderbird.

Everything is working like a charm!
Many thanks to Dex and Nekonoko.

Just a quick note - the new pango-1.26.0 package in beta is still labeled 'pango-1.12.4 GTK2 Core and Text Font Handling'

Been running these about a week now with no obvious ill effects :

atk 1.28.0
freetype2 2.3.11
pango 1.26.0

have fontconfig 2.3.2 installed, when I attempt to install 2.7.3 I get

Code: Select all

1. neko_fontconfig.sw.lib cannot be installed becacsue of missing prerequisites
Also install neko_freetype2.sw.lib

2.meko_fontconfig.sw.eoe cannot be installed becasue of missing prrequisites
Also install neko_freetype2.sw.lib


Also, I see that i have libtool 2.2.6a and libtool 1.5.26 installed, altho that might be on purpose ? Libtool 2 does not merely update libtool 1, I'd imagine ?

Cairo is at 1.6.4 which compiles fine, newer versions do not :( Cairo is up to 1.8.8 or 1.9.2, depending on your bravery ... nekoware appears to be downlevel but I got this from nekoware so it must be a beta that wasn't acepted. Seems to be okay tho.
