Thanks Ztcoracat!

Even thought the SlackBuild script will not "communicate" with SlackBuilds.org website the scripts by ruario have the option, if you enable it, to update the browser automatically. Following this instructions: https://gist.github.com/ruario/b5aca855f2d05ba14836 .I still prefer SBo.

In two minds about reviving this thread but, what the hell. Here is another option for those who want a Slackware package

https://gist.github.com/ruario/dcbba...cc883542ff7ace

It can also create a Slackware package for the snapshots. The next two of which are likely to be kind of interesting to those of you that use Vivaldi regularly.

The first one is out. If you were waiting for sync, we now have sync

https://vivaldi.com/blog/snapshots/help-test-sync/

If youw ant to try it you can fetch and package it with:

Code:
$ VIVALDI_STREAM=snapshot ./latest-vivaldi.sh
It will install alongside Vivaldi stable and maintains its own settings/profile

I have installed Opera and Open Office that way, among other things.
What system are you running? How do you resolve dependencies? Manually?

Edit: Ok I am removing my question, I've just downloaded official rpm package from www.vivaldi.com, I installed it, after conversion to txz. It works at this moment, and quite fast.

Edit: But really I can't use it. The amount of data it loads is so huge, after one day browsing I would probably exhaust all my network transfer data limit.

But… but… but… You could just run my script (first item in my signature) and it would download and convert the .deb and make you a decent package or use the Slackbuild on SBo (just update the version number).

If you convert it with rpm2tgz, you will end up with a pointless† cron job in ./etc/cron.daily, you will have no proper icon associated with your .desktop file and you may get wrong file ownership (unless you remember to run rpm2tgz as root or with fakeroot).

Really you should avoid generic tools like rpm2tgz for all but simple packages when there is no alternative (and personally I would say that a quick hand repack is always an alternative and not a lot slower, especially for simple packages). Also, in this case there are good alternatives.

So why use rpm2tgz‽ I don't get it?

† It is not pointless on rpm systems but is very redundant on Slackware

What are you talking about? I do not believe we load any more data over the network than any other (graphical) browser. Use wireshark and you can confirm this for yourself.

The property of Vivaldi I like is it shows amount of data transfer. Short visit of one website cost me about at least 20 MB of data. This is why I like so much lynx.

Well, fair enough… indeed I don't think we can compete with lynx for low data usage!

Thanks for these hints. Usually I don't run any rpm or deb packages. I am satisfied with SBo packages or I recompile software myself. I was only curious about Vivaldi and how the procedure of conversion works, yes I used rpm2txz.

Edit:

thanks for pointing this to me. I've just made it non-executable.

yeah if you intend to keep Vivaldi around I would remove the package you have from rpm2tgz and install from my repack script.

Good work Ruarí. Very happy to see this available for Slackware.
