Has anyone successfully installed Google Gears?
According to: http://gears.google.com/?platform=linux
the basic requirements are:
The version of Bon Echo installed is 2.0, so that should be ok - right?
However, the Google Gears page always gave me an error, saying that my browser was not compatible. I installed a Firefox extension called User Agent Switcher, to make Bon Echo appear like Firefox to a web host, and set it to "Firefox 1.7.8 (Linux)". Now, Google Gears appears to install, but doesn't work.
When I went back to the Google Gears page, and looked at the details of the system requirements, they are:
glibc 2.3.5 or higher
libstdc++6 (Gears 0.3)
libstdc++5 (Gears pre-0.3)
I haven't checked, but am guessing this might be part of the reason why it isn't working. Does anyone know right off the cuff? And if so, is it possible to update DSL with these packages?
