Be patient and I will get back on this. Between new member support on the AntiX forum site. Anti's eudev test request. My trailer and motorcycle builds in the shop. My plate is really full lately Stevo. :bagoverhead:

But I will give feed back when I get time to do this. For sure.

Ok. Break time from outdoor projects so here is feed back

palemoon-nonsse2_27.7.2~repack-1_i386.deb
With a Terminal Open. Conky and Icewm running. Palemoon is manageable as Qupzilla on this 1.2 ghz Pentium 3 IBM T23 laptop. Conky shows cpu usage at 50% after settling down from starting. Ram usage is not factor on this laptop because I run 1 gig of ram.

No adobe flash installed because of cpu limitations. Browsers crash when I have it installed.

Posting feedback in Palemoon presently. I think I have a new go to favorite browser on this Pentium 3.
:number1:

Thanks to Stevo. From the AntiX Team. Oh yeah. Just a little more info for you.

I forgot to mention. Before all of this and the install. I did a

Code: Select all

apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade -y
as root in terminal so to have everything current before doing this tryout. Making sure libraries were as current as possible first.

Thanks! So I guess either the antiX team could rebuild the nonsse2 version from the sources in my OBS repo, or just pull the deb and source files from the repo and copy those into the antiX repo. But I have those set to use the "obs" release, and I don't know if the antiX repo will handle that.
