@belham2 - I've made Broadcomm wireless drivers for my 2 newest kernels - can't test them though.

Hi Ozsouth!

I saw (your post in the other thread) early this morning and am going to download the 64bit & give it a go tonight on that HP laptop. Not sure if it matters though, as Peebee said the main wl.ko module or something is not included in this Bionic edition because it is beta. Need that wl,ko to load first, I think, so that wireless is recognized as being a option with any/all broadcom wifi chipsets. Once that wl.ko is loaded, maybe then yours kicks in? I don't know. Anyhow---BIG THANK YOU for making the two .pets for broadcom-STA.

I might be misunderstanding things, but either way when I get off work, going to download it and give it a go on the laptop.

Thanks again!


[Update, Tuesday, 13 Nov: I installed your 64-bit ubuntu broadcom-STA.pet into phil's Bionic64, but no luck. I also navigated to the /lib/modules/4.18.15/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ to make sure the .pet installed the "wl.ko" correctly, and it did. One thing to note is that when I did boot with your .pet installed, at least for the first time bionicpup64 recognized there was a wireless there in the laptop. But it was hopeless in determining what kind or even if it was broadcom, yet Puppy Network Wizard gave an option (for the first time) that there is a pci wireless on the laptop. I don't know if we need more drivers, or different drivers. When going through Puppy Network Wizard, everything I tried kept throwing back this:

Error!
Failed to raise interface wlan0 (despite Puppy Wizard seeing a PCI wireless interface)
Failed command was: ifconfig wlan0 up
Error returned was: ifconfig SCIOCSIFFLAGS: No error information


Thanks again, ozsouth for giving this a go....looks like I'll have to wait for whenever the bionic-Beta edition becomes the "not" beta edition anymore & then hope to get it working with the gurus help. Otherwise, back to the the older pups and stay away from these new kernels & pups of the past 12 months, or go with Slackware which weirdly has no problems with the HP broadcom laptop

I'm using the fatdog kernel, it doesn't see the sdhc card reader.
It connected to the wireless adapter from the network wizard.
Streaming video is good with this kernel, not even a ripple.

Thanks.

@belham2 - wl drivers are kernel-specific & I used what I had - kernel 4.14.79 (ubuntu derivatives) - .pet won't work in other kernels.

Test 7.9.6 on Lenovo yoga 530
AMD Ryzen 5 2500u
Pristine frugal install

Thanks for the included Realtek RTL8821CE wifi kernel module. Sorry to say, the device was not detected. Is there anything I can test/do?

I thought the newer kernel would have positive effect on the graphical experience... But it hasn't... It sometimes loads into X, sometimes not. When reaching X, the system freezes after minutes (sometimes seconds).
It uses the ati driver, and I wonder if I should try the AMD proprietary driver? The problem is that I can't connect to the web, so I have to somehow include it into my usb-pendrive that I boot from. Secondly, I have to force Puppy to use it during boot. Can I do that in xorgwizard?

Neither the touchpad nor the touchscreen works.

Thanks for any help


hi zigbert,

can you PM me your /var/log/messages & /var/log/Xorg.0.log

also in a terminal try depmod -a and see if that gets your wifi seen

Oh..1 question: are newer puppys use workaround&patch&dbus&busybox&systemd ? i look confuse? well you're pretty right !! weren't puppys knowned as systemd~free ,hmm,i did installed laptop mode tool which did log .services... asking that because modern distro do use it and often looking for online problem/solutions i do stumble in systemd a lot.
Thanks all for your labour/time,


hi Revolverve,

bionicpup (and xenial) don't have systemd but do have libsystemd as lots of things need it as a dependency. systemd does show up as installed in the PPM, but that is a fix to stop the PPM actually installing it, as it breaks puppy.

hi phil
ok systemd libs only,like one rib of the deamon...patch.
thanks,
still .6 testing everyday,keeping those machines to latest stable peebee lx kernel ..
else;
- i did not use frisbee(my usual default choice) in my last frugal,used sns,working fine.
lets try another interface,frisbee wont see wifi .....
modprobe -r iwlwifi
modprobe: FATAL: Module iwlwifi is in use
----but no connection---
Do see logs:in short NOCARRIER
*note,i did not delete sns profile.
In frisbee option "try another interface" do nothing,here..

Go back internet setup , sns,profile is still there ,attempt to connect,ok,shows wifi connected---no internet--,
back to sns,interface,scan wlan0,found,asking for password(look like it had been deleted/ignored),enter key and its connecting,slowly but connecting ok.
keep in mind here(if revelant..) .6 with lxpupsc64 kernel with lib/firmware/"the only one needed iwlwifi-7260-17 driver here" copy to 1gb savefile(lick frugal,this uefi i5 4th gen tablet) .
else: installed ,
-your patch chromium
-ppm-easystroke + deps
-fredx181 redshift portable(stopped while testing frisbee/wlan thinking it could use iwlwifi in background for location...)
-ppm-guvcview +deps,saw you removed it from quickpet..
thats it.

no problem so far,well,no new one
edit:2 pc with integrate sd card readers work here with all kernel.

?curiosity here,guess if qt5's include in bionicpup there must be something using it!!
what?
Whatabout a qt4 pet or sfs from quickpet?anyone else interested?

There is so much good puppy variants to test ,thanks to all those "retired and/or benevolents" puppy "activists"....oh and frugal rocks...at least here.

@revolverve - looks like you are missing iwlwifi firmware. Please run (in terminal):
cat /var/log/messages | grep iwlwifi
and post output here.

*** EDIT: - note to self - read whole post before commenting (sorry folks).

hi ozsouth
Sorry if my post wasnt clear:
-Only frisbee doesnt see the driver,both 2 other interface do.
-that happen when trying to use frisbee after sns was working(found
wlan0,connect ok,internet ok)
so you could ask;Why try frisbee if sns is working??
to test, because of years of troublefree frisbee use.

Internet setup speaking,one question;
frisbee run as spot?
has it cannot run from console root.

Speaking of XFCE, I like the change to .xintrc, first time I haven't had to hack it myself to get XFCE going Smile


hi battleshooter,

good to see you!
xfce should install straight from the PPM, and add some menu fixes, fix thunars root warning and add wmswitcher. the fixes it adds are in /usr/local/quickpet/checks/xfce
i don't use xfce so if you have any suggestions for improvments i'll add them

Hi Phil and all,

Just curious....as Bionic obsoleted my Sony Vaio laptop's SDCard slot, I just tried on another laptop (an HP with an Intel chip and brcm wireless) to install Bionic and it will not recognize the built-in wireless (Brcm4311 802.11bg WLAN) card.



hi belham2,

i'll add the wl driver in the next release, and recompile the kernel with peebees fix + a working redshift.pet

issues added to 2nd post

thanks

Hi Revolverve,

IIRC, frisbee will work after using sns, but only if while in sns you delete your wifi's profile.

Not in Bionicpup64 at the moment. I don't think frisbee was configured to run as Spot. I can think of any reason why it should have been, why any system application should be. Under Xenialpup64, typing frisbee in the console opens frisbee.

As the person responsible for frisbee, I would like to hear more about these issues and work with you or Revolverve to address them. We should discuss this either via PM or the frisbee 1.4... thread:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=898555#898555

Do you have any pointers as to how to make it spot-friendly?

Revolverve,
Before you change anything related to your frisbee problem, could you get a copy of the system (/var/log/messages) and /tmp/xerrs.log and send them (PM) to me? Do this after you see the problem after a boot-up.

You should not have to delete the SNS profiles to make frisbee work.

Richard
