Netsurf Motif Available

The new netsurf build that DrMadison has been brewing (using Motif and eschewing the GTK2 of the previous release) is working well enough to play with. Jenna16bit was kind enough to package it up into a RPM and I've pushed it up to the Official SGUG Cloud Repo, where anyone using RSE 007 can easily install and play with it.

DrMad has another trick as well- this built isn't using GL rendering and once that is working it will be even faster. That is coming soon.

Meanwhile installing this is just a command away:

$ sudo /usr/sgug/bin/tdnf install netsurf-motif

If you have setup the offical cloud repo --- If not just read the thread here how to do it: Setup SGUG Cloud Repo it's very easy to do.

Thanks a ton for this you guys! I got a problem with the latest version (just updated using tdnf, not sure now new/old it is).
After using Netsurf for a while, I can't click some HTML elements, like the "Search" button at Google.
When I do, I get the error "NetSuff is running out of memory. Please free some memory and try again."

Restarting NetSurf doesn't help, but a restart of the system does the trick and NetSurf works for 10-15 minutes again.
Doesn anyone here have any idea what might be the problem?
