Dillo 3.0.5 aborts downloads
« on: May 14, 2017, 11:25:22 PM »
I don't know if this is PiCore 9.0 specific, but I do use the DILLO browser quite a bit with my RPI2 for what I do.

Noticed that downloads initiated by clicking on a link will start, and then get immediately aborted.  I believe Dillo is using wget with a lua/fltk frontend for it's download feature.

Not a showstopper as using wget in a terminal works, but wondering why Dillo itself aborts all downloads...

I've checked my dillorc file, but can't find anything immediately wrong.  I am also able to download with earlier versions, like 3.0.3 on other distros.  (but sure wish they'd use 3.0.5!)

Kind of scratching my head a little but I saw a patch for wget somewhere, and wondered if this is what that patch was for! :)

Using tinycore version 4 I had the same issue with Dillio.  Solved it by downloading and installing wget.tcz.  Seemed the wget in busybox was the issue.

Thanks gwalther!  That fixed it.

Actually I had to install wget along with libunistring to get it to work.

Since I'm trying not to stray too far from busybox, and the busybox wget works fine in a terminal, I'll probably stick to that, but thank you very much anyway!

Now I just have to figure out if I need to:
1) File a bug report with Dillo
2) File a bug report with Busybox
3) Or figure out if my *own* piCore configuration is not setup right to allow the busybox version of wget to work. :)

Seriously, thanks for the help!

Well, if Dillo need wget.tcz to work correctly the solution is to add wget.tcz to the dep list.

Yes, wget along with libunistring brings it to life.  Just kind of hoping that busybox's version would work.

Not a showstopper as I can use BB's wget in the terminal.  Not as pretty though. :)
