I already download the opera7.55 and trying to upgrade the SL6000 opera 7.25 to 7.55!

How many internal memory needed in the SL6000 and how to upgrade the opera7.25 to 7.55!

Thanks a lot

Hello guys,

let's see if I can revive this thread... biggrin.gif

I just installed Opera 7.55 on my SL-6000 with original Sharp ROM. Everything works fine, although as expected it refused to be installed on CF or SD and I had to put it on the Internal Flash. No big deal, I can live with that, even though I was hoping I could install it on CF/SD so that for a while I could have both version 7.25 and 7.55 for comparison purposes.

At any rate, here are my questions for those with more experience than me:

1. I was expecting to end up with more or less the same space occupied on the Internal memory (7.55 installed should mean 7.25 removed, right?) I have instead about 3Mb MORE occupied compared to when I had the "stock" Opera 7.25. Is it because some of the old files have to be removed manually or rather is it Opera 7.55 just a bigger installation? Reading through this thread all the comments about the voice command function makes me thing it is just Opera 7.55 being bigger....

2. Is there any way to "trick" Opera (or any other program for that matter) into being installed on CF/SD even it would have to go on the internal memory? With Opera 7.55 installed I'm a little over 18Mb taken on the Internal memory, I'd like to keep it lighter if possible.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

Tosa rocks.............

In a previous post for OZ some one mentioned that 'Please note that this is for an SD-card install... and you should remove or edit the postinst for any other install destination.' in http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=15885

I haven't try or attempt to modify the mentioned file, hack, i don't even know where is the posyinst.. blink.gif so, for all the 'remaining' experienced 6k user, can some one check if installation to SD is possible? also i have a copy of the extracted opera 7.55 without all the junk, ofcourse no voice command as well, let me know if anybody need it.

Thanks.
P/S: did someone notice that on sharp's site, it says re-launching the development project, i'm not sure, i saw that in the link in opera 7.55 home page, but got redirected right after that.

Edit: my bad, it says 2002, apparently the site has not been updated in decades.. i felt left out being a 6k user.. sad.gif

egg8178,

it would be great if you could post the de-junked Opera or point me to a web page with it. I'm definitely NOT going to use the voice command option.

Thanks in advance.

P.S.: I also removed libpdf from the plugin directory, another Meg of memory saved.... I actually moved it to a backup directory on my SD card, just in case.
