Curl in Puppy linux

The latest release of the Curl web language browser plugin (8.0.03 for curl9) is now running in my RAM-resident Puppy linux on this old Asus 900A netbook - it boots from an SD chip thanks to grub.

Gettting Curl to run required going into a bin in the path as root and adding a sym-link to surge-do over in /opt/curl/surge/9/bin/surge-do which made possible manually launching the Surge manager, the Curl docs viewer and the development IDE.

What remained was to get Curl applets to run in SeaMonkey and Firefox browsers. That required  visit as root to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and the creation of 3 sym-links to the 3 key .so files in /opt/curl/surge/9/lib


cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
ln -s /opt/curl/surge/9/lib/libcurl-surge-8-0.so ./libcurl-surge-8-0.so

and ditto for 7-0 and for the generic libcurl-surge.so
