Thank you for your assessment...
(I edited my last post deleting a nonsensical line in the last console quotation which I copied into my post by mistake, I apologize...)

(I can connect with no problem in 4.3-k2.6.30.5, but cannot in 4.3-k2.6.25.16, which seems to approve my guess I deal with a driver issue in 4.21.)

sounds right, so unless you really need 4.2.1, which I seem to get lots of network support calls on, ....stay with the working 4.3

Hmm.. Do you think, it's definitely beyond a newbie's capabilities to force Puppy to use a Windows driver with a wrapper? (I don't know whether to try playing with it for Asus EEEPC's wifi and ACER Travelmate's touchpad.)

The general feedback I noticed was a problem with dchp and puppy 4.20/21....ie i can connect but not browse symptoms.

I'm sorry for the previous post. I noticed first thereafter the wrapper wizard integrated into the Puppy network connection wizard. With the help of it, It's pretty easy to set up wireless connection using wrapped windows driver. And I can browse web in Puppy using wireless connection on my EEEPC!!! SmileSmileSmile

Here are additional links (not neaded when using the wizard actually).

Apparently your 900HD has the Realtek RTL8187SE wifi chipset, so the necessary driver is attached to the 6th post in this thread ...
but this is the forum thread for the older kernel.

You should probably be using Puppy 4.3 with the latest kernel (2.6.30.5), for which the necessary rtl8187se driver is here -

Here is the "sn9c20x" webcam driver for various models of microdia webcams, including models branded "Lifecam".
The source code is from http://groups.google.com/group/microdia/web/testing-microdia-driver-draft
After installing this dotpet, reboot. Puppy may automatically load this module, but if not load it manually as such -
Code:
modprobe sn9c20x

Apparently this driver provides the video image in a pixelformat that most video/webcam applications cannot handle, so the libv4l library is required, also attached. The README will install to /root/my-applications/libv4l-README.txt
Instructions for use with the MPlayer, using MPlayer's v4l2 interface:
Install libv4l-0.5.8.pet
Before launching MPlayer, run this command -
Code:
export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l2convert.so

Now launch MPlayer like this -
Code:
mplayer tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:width=352:height=288:device=/dev/video0


UPDATE:
It's important that MPlayer (or XawTV, or Skype, or whatever application you choose) is launched from the same xterminal that ran the "export LD_PRELOAD ..." command.


Hi tempestuous,

If you have the source handy, will you please compile sn9c20x and lib4vl for Puppy 4.3.1?

Thanks!

OK, done -

... I presume the sn9c20x webcam driver/libv4l library works?!
Generally I only hear reports when something's not working!

tempestuous,

It worked for me in Puppy 4.2.1 (and using either xorg or xvesa) with
export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so before running skype.

Will test the driver you just sent for Puppy 4.3.1 (kernel version 2.6.30.5). I have no doubt it will work though.

I will be posting a question, though, how to get the built-in mic working in the very same webcam (Lifecam NX-6000). Am trying it in Puppy 4.3.1, though I haven't checked with older Puppy/kernel versions yet.

Thanks!

I appreciate you want to get something going but spamming the forum with requests is not the way to go about it. On some googling your device seems that it may be supported by most puppies out of the box.
http://antojose.com/content/quick-how-to-setup-configure-teracom-lw272-bsnl-3g-usb-data-card-modem-ubuntu-1004-lucid-1010-maverick
According to that article your device ID is 19d2:2000 which is listed in the udev rules for usb_modeswitch in puppy.
Try pupdial, and if you have problems search for a solution. If you still have problems search for an appropriate thread to ask for help, which this one is not.
Puppy has very good support for a large variety of 3G modems in all kernels for a few years now.
Cheers

Gamepad devices are generally supported in Puppy 4.1/4.2 by the usbhid driver, but the "force feedback" function of this driver is not enabled in Puppy.

Now attached is the usbhid driver, upgraded with force feedback support, for the following gamepad devices:
- Logitech WingMan Cordless RumblePad
- Logitech WingMan Cordless RumblePad 2
- Logitech WingMan Force 3D
- Logitech Formula Force EX
- Logitech MOMO Force wheel
- Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback 2
- PantherLord/GreenAsia game controller
- Thrustmaster FireStore Dual Power 2
- Thurstmaster Ferrari GT Rumble Force
- Zeroplus game controller

After installing this dotpet, reboot. Run "lsmod" to check that the new usbhid module, plus evdev module, have automatically loaded. If not, load them both manually, as such -
Code:
modprobe usbhid
modprobe evdev


Hopefully force feedback will now work. To test, you can install the joystick-utils dotpet, then run this command -
Code:
fftest

The joystick-utils dotpet package also contains these utilities:
evtest
inputattach
jstest
jscal
ffset
