second life


I am extremely green when it comes to puppy but I would like to know how to install the Second Life client in Puppy. There are two Linux clients: http://release-candidate-secondlife-...136274.tar.bz2 and http://secondlife.com/developers/ope...3.2906.tar.bz2

I have some 2.14 and 2.17 puppys, and maybe some other versions. Can someone tell me whether either of those clients will run, and then can you explain to a green newbie how to do it

Do you meet the requirements in the README file provided with the package?

Yes I have machines that meet the hardware requirements, and I have Puppys 2.17, 4.13, or 4.20. I just don't know how to install under Puppy

./configure --your-selected-options
<if successful then you will see the pound sign, if not, just go for a default config with ./configure and no options>

You don't need to compile.
open a terminal
cd to where you downloaded the file
Code:
tar -xvjf SecondLife-i686-1.23.5.136274.tar.bz2
cd SecondLife-i686-1.23.5.136274
./secondlife
