    tried with Slackware 14.1 and it is running so far, but some pictures are not showing / black (e.g. in hackaday.com). Maybe if the pics were showing I would use it more because its not so hungry as Seamonkey.

    I didn't tryed under Slackware, but I guess it's a missing dependencies, either libpngsomething or libjpegsomething. Take a look at the pndrun_otter.out, there should be an error message inside.

    Hmmm. I'm still not clear on how to clear thoses error (I have the same issue with Arora). I don't have them because I have installed certificates on my firmware, but it may not be the best solution.

    Well, I guess we have outdated ca-certificates in the firmware, but I don't know how to update these.

    Hi all !

    @ ED: on Debian based systems, "update-ca-certificates" does just that.

    I hope this is the command you were looking for :)

    Cheers, Magic Sam

    Cf the thread I created on Ca-certificates.

    We don't have them installed at all, but they're compiled and available in the feeds.

    I still use Opera (12) onto my PC, best browser imho. ^^  Would be cool to have a "real" opera alternative onto the Pandora. But does Otter also have the old Opera features that are missing in newer Opera browsers? I strongly need the "fit to width" button, this would be super handy onto the Pandora, Firefox has nothing like that so to make the site fit, you have to zoom.

    Hmm, how does Qupzilla handle that?

    Do the ca-certificates need a lot of space? If they're compiled and working, including them makes sense.

    I guess GIT with https from GitHub would work as well then :)

    Notaz has done a fantastic job of keeping the OS fitting in the Pandora's NAND. I'm looking forward to the Pyra though when we won't have to be so frugal.  Any news on the planned NAND size for the Pyra?  8GB would probably 'do it' for the OS with room to spare.  Anything more than that would be gravy.

    When I think about the 3GB of LaTeX packages my desktop Debian is just downloading (can hardly believe I never used LaTeX since the last reinstall. Thank god my internet connection is faster than it used to be), I know it won't be enough "with room to spare" for me. But of course you can make do with it.Is "gravy" positive or negative? I looked it up and I'm still not a hundred percent sure whether you think it would be good or bad to have 16GB or more...

    You can have "unlimited" space now on the Pandora as well if you wish.  Just install the Zaxxon on SD.  No worries to ever run out of NAND space.  Speedwise, I haven't noticed any slowdown whatsoever by using Zaxxon on SD versus Zaxxon on NAND.  I hope PYRA will have this ability as well.

    It's a few hundred KiB, add it to task-pandora-xfce.inc if you like.

    I'm reluctant to making any more changes after all the painful breakage we recently had.

    Can I just run "opkg install ca-certificates" ?

    Hi all,

    I really like that browser, it could become my favourite one on the Pandora soon ! Thanks ptitSeb :)

    N.B: Latest ca-certificates update fixed the SSL issues. 

    Cheers, Magic Sam
