I am trying to set up 3.40 with kermit and opera.
The kermit I compiled for BL1 requires only libc.so.5 and libm.so.5 (no
Opera requires glibc2.2.5:
These total 6.5MB, the libc5 versions 656K !!!!!
Opera also requires glibc 2.2.5 libdl (61K) and libpthread (463K).
And libX11, libXext, libSM and libICE, all of which are also required by
icewm (and hopefully found in Steven's icewm package along with libXpm).
So do I need to copy over (and ldconfig) anything besides
glibc 2.2.4 libm libc ld-linux (static) libdl libpthread
and add icewm and opera? After installing to HD - opera won't fit in
Steven, did you set up Opera with BL3.40 or 3.32?
With luck, my friend, who is 84 and learned to use a computer when we made
him a 486 about 5 years ago, can type the name of his ISP and it will
dial, connect, then start X (with icewm) and opera and go to his home
page. Or dial and then type opera. He already knows how to exit opera
and windows, so won't turn off linux without rebooting first. If this
works, we hope to switch other friends over to linux for internet. It
will save us a lot of support time because linux crashes less and does not
need f-prot updates.
Eventually we can use David's 2.4.31 usb storage kernel, xli, and enough
of netpbm (libc5) to shrink his photos so he can email them (with mutt?).
By then some relative will have given him a faster computer with huge hard
drive instead of our 300MHz with 540MB drive.
The 8GB hard drive is having DRQ hda status timeout problems, just like it
was before transplanting it from the Compaq, where the problem was fixed
with hdparm. This occurs when I search the entire drive. So this had
nothing to do with the tar problem or no-himem-sys boot problem.
