Bodhi Legacy: browsers problem


Best Answer auro, 24 October 2017 - 09:36 PM

Pale Moon does have a non-official build that supports non sse2 cpu's. Have a look at https://forum.palemo...pic.php?t=13530

I'm on 64bits and can't test this, but I do run PaleMoon and it works just great 😊 Go to the full post

Hi, I have a big problem with bodhi regarding the browser. Midori and Firefox does not start, qupzilla closes after a few moments. My cpu is Athlon xp 2400+, I noticed that the latest versions of browsers do not support sse2 cpu. But I've tried, like advising around the web, old versions of theoretically supported versions like the 45, but I did not get results. How do I fix it?

The log:
An exit code of 4 was returned



A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

The best I can suggest is try starting the browser (Midori, firefox, etc.) from a terminal and look at the output you get there. You should, I believe, get some useful information regarding the reason the program closed.

This laptop has Firefox 48.0.something. What's the website, so I can crash my browser. Not on Bodhi, but just for grins.


Unsolicited advice for learning linux, that won't cost you anything

Pardon, what's a sse2 cpu, anyone?

Google leads to wikipedia:

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSE2

 

Maybe that helps?

There is a misunderstanding. The problem is the browser that support only sse2 cpus. My cpu have sse support only.

Exactly what the non-official Pale Moon build does... support sse 😊

EDIT: Actually there's a package already. See the answer to the question in this topic, https://forum.pepper...hp?topic=6002.0

Good luck

Hello,

I try Firefox 45.0.2 wich is in the depot, using synaptic for installing it.

it seems to support cpu without sse2.

once installed, it it's useful to block the automatic upgrade of the version.

it's preferable to uninstal completely firefox  54 or much (55, 56, ...) before doing it.

Firefox is at version 56 and firefox ESR at 52.
Using Firefox 45 is, IMHO a security risk.

Hello, the link for Palemoon for CPU with only SSE (Athlon, Athlon XP, etc) is here : https://forum.palemo...hp?f=40&t=13530 , i've just installed it yesterday, and it look like a charm on my Athlon XP+

 

Once installed manually (in /usr/local/palemoon), you need to  define a entry in the menu of Bodhi, it's very difficult for me, because the english options of Bodhi are not all translated in french.

 

So, if one can explicit this action, thank for the other who will understood much if this is do by a more comprehensive english language than mine (i know, i'm bad for this point, but i'll learn every day to progress).

Bonjour,

 

you might try to use the text below. Copy it to a textfile and save it as:

~/.local/share/appplications/palemoon.desktop

 

You have palemoon installed to a rather unusual place so you may need to change the Exec= line using the full path to /usr/local/ in order to make it work.

 

Spoiler

 

Hope this helps.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

Ah i see, Charles' reply is helpful imho. I remember MMX from my office days and the gap between Pentium four and five was substantial enough in my case. I was not aware of SSE and I don't recall my lecturers telling me about the subsequent SSEs. Somewhat recall approximately that my campus laboratories chose RISC and covered much of x86 in theory when they were teaching my cohort about instruction sets.

Hello, Thanks to Charles,

this text added in the file specified will add an entry in the "applications/internet" menu of Bodhi, with the name : "palemoon (Navigateur web)", and one clic will bring palemoon onto the current desktop. Great job ;-)
