Dillo alternative?

Post#1 by fullmoonremix » 26 Feb 2016, 12:43

Salutations... :good:

"Framebuffer" Netsurf is a (attractive?) ultra lightweight browser based on x11 ...
(it's basically... a Dillo alternative that uses XCB... SDL... VNC... while avoiding Gtk/Qt bloat)

IMHO... :oops: this could be a nice addition to the Porteus pantheon of modules... :wink:
(unfortunately it has not yet been posted to http://webwarper.net/ww/~av/slakfinder.org)

http://www.netsurf-browser.org/downloads/gtk/ says
Framebuffer NetSurf

There are actually two versions of NetSurf available for Unix-like systems. In addition to the GTK front end, which is for normal desktop usage, there is a framebuffer front end for NetSurf which requires no windowing environment or GUI toolkits. It currently supports the Linux framebuffer and ABLE's framebuffer.
I presume you not really want that very version, the framebuffer one without GUI?
Cheers!

Salutations... :good:

Yep. Basically... it all comes down to Netsurf... PekWM... EDE... Xfe... Qingy... TkDvd... Djv (libav) @ the core of the derivative that I've been building for over 1 year. :wall:
Unfortunately... this level of compiling is above my level of the food chain. I have achieved a crude Slim/EDE (PekWM) desktop so far and Netsurf will only compile 90% without CPAN stuff.

The point of this tedious derivative is to deprecate (perhaps eliminate?) Gtk/Qt bloat. I have already reached out for and secured one pledge to get help so far.
However... that help will be with Qingy and EDE. It took me 2 weeks to get 90% of Netsurf "framebuffer" to compile. @ the current rate I fear it will take 2 years to get the other 10%.

When I finally acquire Netsurf.. I will ask for help with Qingy and EDE. When that is finished I will complete my 1u rack2tower 2 node beowulf cluster to run my Non-Sequencer (Ntk/Fltk) DAW.

Pehaps then... I can build low latency music production projects instead of distro derivatives. :unknown:
Who knows... I might even try to port it to run on the Parallella (18 core FPGA) and/or nVidia Jetson (256 "CUDA" core ARM).

Pls Note: I already have a highly unstable crude version of this derivative running inside of LxQt/Porteus (I'm using it to post this thread). So this is more than just "proof of concept".

Best Regards... :beer:

Solved using 05-devel.xzm... Src2pkg and Engrampa Archiver...
(...this approach will compile a "framebuffer" package)

Netsurf...
@ http://www.netsurf-browser.org/downloads/source/

...Makefile @ /netsurf-all-3.6/

Code: Select all

# Build Environment
export TARGET ?= framebuffer
... Makefile.defaults @ /netsurf-all-3.6/netsurf/

Code: Select all

# Enable Netsurf's use of gstreamer for displaying videos
# Valid options: YES, NO
NETSURF_USE_VIDEO := YES 
...Makefile @ /netsurf-all-3.6/netsurf/

Code: Select all

# Default target is framebuffer backend
ifeq ($(TARGET),)
  TARGET := framebuffer
endif
...Makefile.defaults @ /netsurf-all-3.6/netsurf/frontends/

Code: Select all

# Framebuffer default surface provider.
# Valid values are: x, sdl, linux, vnc, able,
NETSURF_FB_FRONTEND := x
...command line

Code: Select all

src2pkg -VV -W -i='make -i install' -p=/usr netsurf-all-3.6.tar.gz

At all times my preference is to speak for myself... so I refuse to tell anyone what to do.

@fullmoonremix
Thank you for your package information.
It was introduced into APorteus.

Thanks.

I forgot to mention... perhaps you might consider adding "tkdvd" (alternative burner) to your APorteus miniset?
It's only deps are basically tcl/tk. If SnackAmp (tcl/tk) gets compiled it might also be a good music player alternative.
