All about K-Meleon under Linux using wine.
[quote=Fred] DSL is still using a 2.4 kernel. Puppy is running as root by default, and it is not quite easy to add a full normal user account. Slitaz would be an alternative, but it does not have the correct screen resolution for all wide screen monitors. I would suggest CDlinux and in the older version 6.0.1 , if you only want web browsing, and do not need office applications. You should have a broadband DSL (ADSL) connection, not a dial-up connection. The included Firefox may be old, but you would anyhow have to install current browser releases yourself. The CDlinux iso file is only about 59 Mb . Download from here : http://sourceforge.net/projects/cd-linux/files/CDlinux-ISO/0.6.1/CDlinux-0.6.1.iso.gz/download Unpack the iso.gz file with 7-zip. You will get a folder with Cdlinux.iso in it. Burn the iso to a CD with the special iso burning file command from the menu of your burning application. It may be "Burn iso to CD" or similar. Do not simply copy and burn the iso file, this would not work for booting. In a second burning on the same CD you can add additional programs in a multiburning session. You can first download wine to a harddisk folder from here : http://sourceforge.net/projects/wine/files/Slackware%20Packages/1.1.10/wine-1.1.10-i486-1kjz.tgz/download Create a folder Wine and unpack the .tgz file into this folder with 7-Zip in two steps . Go there to the folder /usr/lib/ and rename the existing file libwine.so.1.0 to libwine.so.1 . Go now to the folder /usr with 7-zip and pack this folder only in two steps, first to tar , and then with Gzip to Wine-1110.tar.gz . Then download for example my variation KM-NX-18123 from here : http://one.xthost.info/eichhein/K-Meleon-NX-18123.zip Unpack it and add to the main k-meleon folder the two dll's msvcp71.dll and msvcr71.dll that you can find for example at dll-files.com . You can also add the flash plugin to the plugins folder, if you should want that.You can also add a personal startpage to the main folder. After having done that, repack the folder K-Meleon-NX-18123 as a new zip-file K-Meleon-NX-18123.zip . You can also download the latest Firefox for Linux if you want it. from here : http://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-3.5.7&os=linux&lang=en-US It will be a firefox-3.5.7.tar.bz2 file. Create a textfile containing the install script in Notepad. With the Text : install-pkg /media/CDlinux_0.6.1/Wine-1110.tar.gz cp /media/CDlinux_0.6.1/K-Meleon-NX-18123.zip /home/cdl/ cp /media/CDlinux_0.6.1/firefox-3.5.7.tar.bz2 /home/cdl/ cd /home/cdl/ unzip K-Meleon-NX-18123.zip tar -C /home/cdl/ -jxf firefox-3.5.7.tar.bz2 chown -R cdl:root /home/cdl chmod -R 775 /home/cdl And save it as Startscript.txt in UTF-8 format. Burn now the 4 files to the CD in the second burning. namely : Wine-1110.tar.gz K-Meleon-NX-18123.zip (your changed zip-file) firefox-3.5.7.tar.bz2 Startscript.txt When the CD is ready, you can try to boot it, after going to the boot menu of the computer, which can be called by pressing repeatedly a specified key, which can be different for any computer, for example F12. Select there the CD as the boot medium. CDlinux will start up quite quickly, and should recognize your screen resolution and establish a DSL (ADSL) connection automatically. Mount the CD , right clicking on the icon and selecting Mount Volume. Open the red root terminal in the taskbar at the bottom. You should immediately change the root password, typing : passwd and press Enter and then type a safe password twice. Do the same for the existing user cdl, typing : passwd cdl and press Enter and then type a safe password twice. To install wine, K-Meleon and Firefox, open an additional user terminal (without the red frame), and type mousepad /media/CDlinux_0.6.1/Startscript.txt select the text , copy all of it and paste it into the root terminal (with the red frame). Then press the Enter key several times, until the commands are all executed. Close the root terminal and open the user terminal (without the red frame). To start K-Meleon, type : wine /home/cdl/K-Meleon-NX-18123/k-meleon.exe To start Firefox, type : /home/cdl/firefox/firefox (the names will be completed after the first letters, pressing the Tab-key.) The browsers should always be started as the user cdl, and wine does not work when started as root. You could also add two icon links to the /home/cdl/Desktop folder, containing the browser start commands, with the ending ".desktop", and add them later in a third cd multiburn session together with corresponding .jpg's ore .png's . It is also possible to start CDlinux and the apps from a bootable USB stick, but I think I could write a "how to" about that later. Regards Fred[/quote]
