this is my first post here & I already raised some questions........
I downloaded 2 VL versions: 5.0.1 Soho & 5.8 std gold from a local mirror here in my country.
Both versions installed just fine to my ancient computer: Pentium 2, 128MB Ram, 8MB Vga.
I just played 5.0.1 for very short while, then wiped it out & installed 5.8 std instead.
However, 5.0.1 with icewm is much snappier than 5.8 with xfce. AS of writing I am downloading icewm for 5.8 to play with.
The included seamonkey browser is obviously too heavy for my system. Furthermore, Abiword cannot properly open ms word document that I received from school.
On the other hand, my short experience with 5.0.1Soho was exactly the opposite. Firefox (v1) opened the same website just fine + web page scrolling did not stress my eyes at all. Open office (v1.1.4) opened my ms word document properly & its loading time is not bad as well.
For this reason, I am planning to install that firefox & open office from 5.0.1 Soho to my existing 5.8 std gold.
I have checked the cd, firefox is in *.tgz format so I think I can just use 'installpkg' to install.
However, open office is in bz2 format. Can anyone advise me on howto properly install a bz2 package??
