Is that 32 or 64 bit?
my understanding is that firefox uses eme, widevine and html5 and one can use netflix at least on 64 bit. on 32 bit I think you have to still use flash and some other tweaks like a spoofer. flash 25 is available on pkg.org for slackware..but I am not sure what other tweaks are required...will try on 64 bit without flash and see what happens. any one know what the 32bit requires?

If you absolutely have to have flash, this method still works:

I just tested FF 52.0.2 on VL 7.2 Light B2.1 by downloading it from mozilla.com, extracting it to /opt and running /opt/firefox/firefox

No flash is installed.
Logged in to Pandora and music plays fine.
Logged in to Netflix, but I don't have a streaming account so can't say how that works.

After a careful study of the man pages, I ran mkinitrd with both the -c and the -F options to clear the old initrd-tree.  I fixed the broken links manually (system.map, config, and vmlinuz), but oddly enough grub never objected to them in the first place.  (My guess is that they are used only by lilo, not grub.)  Anyway, everything seems to be working fine now, and the "No kernel modules found" message is gone.  I don't think I need the old kernel any more, so I deleted it and and updated grub once again.  Success!

Thanks for the helpful advice.

Using the command you provided, I determined that php.ini should have been in /etc/httpd.  Moved it there.  Now getting

Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

Any idea where it is to be located?  I put this on in public_html.

You put php.ini in a public facing folder?!!! No no no no no no no no. Does not belong there. No wonder it's not being read correctly.

php -i | grep "php.ini"  should tell you where it is. Generally, it's buried somewhere under /etc

Actually, Vector includes pulseaudio so firefox 52 should work fine..and you can even sign into netfix..well it includes eme anyway...I just downloaded the 52 pkg from firefox which runs in a folder and sound worked on youtube but could not sign into netfix...perhaps it needs to be installed. or 32bit does not work. This is though an issue for some linux and will be lots of unhappy campers

You need Flash in order to sign into Netflix. And if I recall, Netflix doesn't check for the latest "Linux version". It checks for the latest and greatest Windows version.

We're working on trying to get Pepperflash to work, which should give us a temporary workaround until Flash is dropped completely.

VL-7.2-Light B2.1 has been rebuilt with these fixes, as well as several package updates. Everyone is invited to test it.   ;D
