  1. Don't know if anyone is looking at this, but here's maybe a clue. It's culled from FF3 support group: "I digged through the code of firefox and found out they use gtk_print_job_new for printing, which takes a pdf file as a parameter. But how was that PDF file created from the HTML page is not yet clear to me." source: NG: moxilla.support.firefox (Help required on printing web page in firefox)
  2. Did anyone find a solution to Firefox 3 printing? Just read a long thread but doesn't seem any solution, as yet??
  3. Hope this isn't Off topic, but it seems that the 'cloud' system that lacks 'appeal' (I concur) is going to come whether we like it or not.
  4. Hummm...Still no joy. It just stalls on install (after about 2 seconds).
  5. Cannot Get KernelEx to work with firefox setup 3.5.2. Install just crashes. Tried -- [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\KernelEx\AppSettings\Configs] "*\\setup.exe"="WINXP" -- but that didn't work either. No error messages of any kind. Anyone any ideas?
  6. The problem with 512MiB of Video RAM occurs when there is 1GiB or more of system RAM. It would appear, at least with AGP cards, that the entire video RAM is mapped as a frame buffer into the top 1GiB of address space. This space is also used for the AGP aperture, and the VCache among other functions. Also in this space is the VMM page table - this grows proportional to the amount of system RAM. Obviously the AGP Aperture and VCache must be reduced, but somewhere at or over 1GiB of system RAM, there is no more address space for 512MiB of video RAM... I'm not sure how a PCIe card would compare here since they don't use the AGP Aperture... Thanks for the additional info. BTW I'm using 1GB of RAM, so I guess it must be 'over' to cause the problem you mentioned.
  7. I can also confirm no problem with 512MB of video RAM on win98SE (using GEForce 6200/512MB).
  8. Got some further info on it.... It's unsupported (of course) ... The Bon Echo nightlies continue to be built, and fixes for security issues sometimes get checked into the Bon Echo branch. They're also *undocumented* Daily a new version: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/fir...est-mozilla1.8/ Use at what one's own risk, but then, what's new in that?
  9. Thought i'd give it a try. Seems ok so far on my win98SE system. It's called "Bon Echo" for some reason...The 'What's New' link doesn't give any info though.

  11. You may care to see the Firefox support group to see if this question has been asked of FF3 independently. mozilla.support.firefox on server: 216.196.97.169 Use freeware Thunderbird or any email/newsgroup software. HTH.
  12. Many thanks for your continuing hard work in keeping us updated MDGx! Much appreciated.
  13. Can only answer from my own experience which is this: 1. USB on motherboard packed up (following a lightning strike!) , so I installed a PCI-USB card. Yes, you should be able to disable USB (motherboard provided USB) in BIOS. 2. Whether new USB will be detected in DOS I don't know, except to say that I use Ghost 2003 (DOS) and it detects mine.
  14. No, sorry, this is not helpful. Worse, it is simply misleading and false. Did you use an old ATA disk? There is no SATA driver for the nVidia nForce3 250 chipset. Due to that information above, I spent a couple of hours downloading and installing drivers. Just to find out there is no such thing. My SATA I disk is still running in compatibility mode. The latest Win98 driver for the nForce3 is the v4.27 Unified Driver: http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_udp_win9x_4.27.html (Go here: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us + select Product Type: Legacy + Product Series: nForce 3 Series + Operating System: Windows 98 + Language: <doesn't matter> and you will finally land there). This nForce Win9x driver package contains the below components: Audio driver version 4.42 Audio utility version 4.44 Ethernet driver version 4.33 GART driver version 3.77 (WHQL) Memory controller driver version 3.38 (WHQL) with updated uninstaller files SMBus driver version 4.04 (WHQL) with updated uninstaller files Installer version 4.45 Note that you don't need to install neither the Audio driver and utility nor the Ethernet driver from this package on the ASRock ALiveDual-eSATA2 as this board features the C-Media CM6501 Audio Codec (detected as USB device) and the Realtek RTL8111 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC which have their own drivers. Grab them here: ftp://ftp.asus.com.tw/pub/ASUS/misc/audio...o_V51224219.zip http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downlo...p;GetDown=false So for the ALiveDual-eSATA2, you will only install the GART (aka AGP), Memory controller, and SMBus driver from this package but no SATA driver. I doublechecked wether other vendors with nForce3 250 mainboards may provide SATA drivers for Windows 98 but had no luck. See driver downloads for ASUS K8N-E Deluxe, GigaByte GA-K8NS, GA-K8NS Pro, GA-K8NSNXP, MSI K8N Neo2-FX, and MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum, to name a few. I don't want to conclude my first post here just complaining. Some of you may find this helpful: I've got a passive Sapphire Radeon 3850 (PCI-E). Obviously, there are no Win98 drivers for newer Radeon cards. But I didn't want to switch back to my old card so I searched for a generic VESA driver and finally found this page: http://bearwindows.boot-land.net/vbe9x.htm Using that driver, I can run Windows 98 with a resolution of 1280 x 1024 at 32-bit colors. The drawing speed of the screen is fair (i.e. not really suited for action games), but who cares? It's surely better than 640 x 480 pixels / standard vga driver. :-) Regards I think you've said it all regarding nForce3 (which I use on Foxconn MB). nforce2 and 3 chipsets have a flaw (lack of driver support) with sata 2 drives. You have to force them to 1.5 or sata 1 mode with jumper to get them to work properly. One person on the foxconn forum told me: "At least I had too and could not install windows with them for the life of me. they worked fine as a hot swap storage drive but creates *very* long boot times (NCQ is not supported on these chipsets)." I use (P)ATA and see no reason to use sata at all. HTH
  15. I answered that question here. If you wish to have a full view of the history behind the version numbers conundrum, and have time for it, do read the whole original LLXX topic. Many thanks! I guess this is/will be one of the most important updates as smaller capacity HDDs seem to be hard to find now, at least in UK.
