I was wondering if there was another browser I could use with vector. Opera didn't load and I need something else besides Dillo. Thanks for helping

Was it ever built? I checked but couldn't find it. and Caitlyn had a go but claimed it was beyoind her capabilities;.

Nevertheless, I'd be grateful for a link.

Thanks. Unfortunately I've just installed it in VL 6 Light and it's missing a file called libsoup-2.4.so.1. I think the libraries are what defeated Caitlyn when she tried to compile it (and I myself wouldn't even try).

Libsoup is in the repos.

New midori is out though. 0.1.7
Someone may want to build that one.

Paul Sherman from absolute linux (based on slackware) was able to package midori. If you get stuck, you could probably ask him. He's been fairly responsive to my inquiries.
