Years later... VL-7.0 is the main system now, about since shortly after I had the trouble with openSUSE.

In the meantime I tried NixOS, Gobo, Foresight, Puppy and AntiX and recently I was thinking about switching to Slackware. But now I will check out VL-7.1 RC2.3 first. Wink

Besides VL-7.0 I like Puppy best... Flash stopped working on VL-7.0 some time ago and I was too lazy to find out what's wrong with it, so when I really need flash, I start up Puppy Smiley

Edit: The Puppy I use is also based on Slackware.

> There Is No Such Thing As A "Dumb Question"!

Ok then, what is the latest test iso for download I could try out? And where should I download it from?

I found VL-7.1-STD-RC2.3.iso under for 32 bit.

Is that the latest? If yes: I get a download speed of less than 16 kilobytes/s, this results in an estimated download time of more than TWELVE hours.
I left it running for several minutes and it is getting worse - estimating 14 hours now, after downloading 10 megabytes.

That's not an option. I will cancel the download after sending this post.

What could I do to get reasonable download times?

Or if you could do something about that, please do it.

I left it running and suddenly the download sped up to about 400kb/s and now it's finished. Smiley
I don't know if something was done on your side - if yes: Thank you very much!

7.1 is good, but 7.0 32-bit:
/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome: /usr/lib/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome)

I have built the latest stable version of google-chrome (38.0.2125.104) for all vector versions.  Please add the untested repository to your slapt-getrc and install it via slapt-get or gslapt.

If you have 7.0, you also need to add the 'testing' repository.

32-bit repo URL is:
64-bit repo URL is:

Post the results of your testing here so the package can be moved to the stable repositories if all is well with it.

Google itself (mainly: Gmail..) has been whinging for some time, it's not fully supporting this version ( Version 24.0.1312.57 ) anymore.
Which is a shame since I require a reasonable up-to-date Flash-plugin.(Which means I got Chrome shoved down my throat...)

This topic (and your similar posts) have been moved to New Package Requests, which is the place to request new packages.

Hi, to all, since the source code is available.

May someone, please,  package this browser?

To be found here: - I'm unsure whether the tar files containing binary packages are suitable, but there is also a link to the source.

Just so that I don't forget - there is also
- uzbl: - a web browser that follows the UNIX philosophy, and
- the Otter Browser: - a project meant to recreate the functionality of Opera 12.x

(Opera itself has dropped Linux support, so... *shrug*)

Also... with all these request made, I now have a bit of a guilt feeling... so... can I help with something?

Edit 2:

- @ The Headacher : Thanks for moving my posts! Smiley

- Meanwhile I tried to build QupZilla locally. After some preparation it went on until it stopped with two "no matching function for call" from g++... I don't want to ask for doing something that seems to be impossible atm. I will try to find out what's wrong and post here again after I found a solution.
But that aside, there is another problem: Building QupZilla requires to do "qmake; make; make install" - the qmake takes the place of what normally would be done by configure, at least so it seems. So none of the "--type"-options seems to fit.
On top of that, "sbbuilder --link=" (no other options) creates the following:
and ends without any (error) message. Nothing else. Is that normal? I thought it would at least try to download the source tar file...

Anyway, as long as I cannot build it by hand, all the more sophisticated steps are not needed yet.
So - later Smiley
