I can't view other trees with more than 20,000 names! GR said it's because I don't have the right IE.

I don't understand that, because I could see large trees (well over 20,000) until recently.

My computer is OLD! It won't accept updates of IE. I don't have a problem with any other website. No way am I buying a new computer just to see a tree on GR.

I see Sparkling Sandie started a similar thread yesterday - it is annoying! I won't say that it completely spoils the games threads, but it nearly does!

you know, if you remember back to the early days of Free BMD, how dreadfully slow it was, and the solution offered was to access the site in the middle of the night when theoretically it would be less busy.........

this site is actually worse than that in my opinion.........

Apparently there is some internet war going on which is slowing the internet.

My annoying error is when I have s few pages ope and move between my tree and say Ancestry or any other site. Each time I go back to my tree it takes me back to my home person, me and not to the person that I left open and have just taken info from Ancestry for.

I haven't had the error message on any of the boards for a while, but I get them when using Messages.

EVERY TIME I send a message to someone (usually the first contact message) I get the error message. Usually the message is sent.......... I check now, because I don't want to send the message multiple times.

Ofcourse, it NEVER happens when "the team" try it.

Indeed he has

6.47.1. Installation of GRUB

Fix an incompatibility between this package and Glibc-2.17:

sed -i -e '/gets is a/d' grub-core/gnulib/

Prepare GRUB for compilation:

./configure --prefix=/usr \
--sysconfdir=/etc \
--disable-grub-emu-usb \
--disable-efiemu \

The --disable-werror option allows the build to complete with warnings introduced by more recent flex versions. The other --disable switches minimize what is built by disabling features and testing programs not needed for LFS.

Compile the package:


This package does not come with a test suite.

Install the package:

make install

Using GRUB to make your LFS system bootable will be discussed in Section 8.4, “Using GRUB to Set Up the Boot Process”.
6.47.2. Contents of GRUB
Installed programs: grub-bios-setup, grub-editenv, grub-fstest, grub-install, grub-kbdcomp, grub-menulst2cfg, grub-mkconfig, grub-mkimage, grub-mklayout, grub-mknetdir, grub-mkpasswd-pbkdf2, grub-mkrelpath, grub-mkrescue, grub-mkstandalone, grub-ofpathname, grub-probe, grub-reboot, grub-script-check, grub-set-default, grub-sparc64-setup
Installed directories: /usr/lib/grub, /etc/grub.d, /usr/share/grub, /boot/grub

Wend .......talking about Discus

Did i ever tell you about the time i..........

Oh no, i can't. It's not something i like to talk about.

I just think what someone else said - let's all discuss it together with a cuppa (and lots of cake) :-D


Island Report 26 Mar 2013 22:07

Yes Ann, but Rollo also has GRUBS :-S :-S


Kense Report 26 Mar 2013 22:03

Other factors are the number of threads that you have contributed to, the number of posts and the size of your tree. Usually those who experience the error most often have over 20,000 posts to their credit.

Quiz board threads are particularly susceptible to the error message as they tend to be very large and have many contributors and probably a number of ppeople usiing the watch facility.

Oh and it also happens when I am on my IPad so not Firefox but Safari.

I dont have many problems with errors...odd one every now and again. I dont know why? IE9 and never messed about with cookies ect...(not that I know what they are)

I must say when ever I see Rollos posts explaining anything to do with computers, it goes right over my head :-D
