Hi all

Potential problem - no wifi working with Broadcom (is it wl.ko)? driver.

Just tried saluki on new laptop - Emachines (Acer) E732
and sadly no go with wifi.

I'm guessing the solution is kernel related and the appropriate modules
need to be activated (or whatever the proceedure is) but being a n00b,
I don't know how to do it.

I do know that racyNOP-5.2.2 with the later k3.0.7 kernel works 'cos
I just tried it.

Am sure Jemimah knows what's best - later kernel or tweek this one.

Many of the recently released budget (and expensive) laptops seem to have Broadcom wifi - and therefore - a large number of potential users
could be left wondering what to do.

Regarding acpi and suspend / resume etc, pemasu's ICE and DX series pup's have acpi etc working, as do the fatdog64 series puppy's.

Is it as simple as copying the folders over into saluki?
Probably not - but maybe some of what's there may be useful.

Hope the solutions don't produce too many headaches.

Thanks again to you all and very best regards - Ray

Ray MK,

Broadcom wifi drivers will be in the final release. I'm positive that Jemimah will fix the acpi suspend/resume issue. Thank you for the input.

Thanks Tman

Nice puppy - works really well on Acer TM 243LC with only 256mb ram.

Using it now with J's midori - really fast.

Next - try it on the EeePC 701SD - will feedback.
(Probably tomorrow as it is late here now)

Thanks again and best regards - Ray

Quick test run live pfix=ram on my main Linux box. Sound and internet working on initial boot..... had to run through xorgwizard to get my desired 1440x900 resolution.Simple enough though.
Installed Opera 11.52 since I had it handy, working fine.

Did one with Saluki in Arabic after reading the Saluki Wiki article.

Is there a larger version of the Saluki logo?

Midori has done everything I have asked including facebook and hulu and is very fast.

Dillo 3+ also works well and was used to download midori and seamonkey (also works well)

The only problem apart from not having a suspend function is that the Network Wizard is not persistent over reboot. The information is saved but must be reloaded. This was true of Racy as well

I sure hope you solve the acpi issue as suspend has become a necessity for me.

Tman - thanks for .pet.

Yes, glad to hear J confirms her preference for Midori - long gone time to dump SM.

Opera lovers - go straight to 11.6beta - experience suggests their alpha s outperform any Moz offering.

As to deletions, still need a FD formatter somewhere! Oh yes, when everything goes pear-shaped, it's still the best way in, esp. BIOS repair.

re. Thunderbird/Eudora conflict - it may be because Moz. acquired Eudora. Although it's still 'the choice of professionals', Moz have fiddled with it and partly Thunderbirdised it. Another reason to abandon SM completely. Use the proper tools for the job! In this case, I even take my own advice - I have never liked nor used the (bundled) Opera email client!

Brits, and soon RoW, will need a flashplayer for BBC iPlayer. Adobe continues to get bad Press, but it may be unavoidable presently, esp. as alternatives get even worse reviews. It's an historical issue with Auntie, dating back to the time Blair gave Billyboy an honorary gong for showing him how to switch on his PC. As a result, the Establishment were pressurised into using Windoze, although some at the Beeb opted for Bananas (or was it Oranges? Pears?) with some BeOS hybrid.

PostPosted: Tue 29 Nov 2011, 06:32    Post subject: Kernel  

Is it decided which kernel saluki is going to use? 2.6.x or 3.x.x?
Also is it decided if it's going to use Aufs or unionfs?
My experience with the 3.1 kernel is that unionfs has problems particularly when booting from USB and going to suspend. In contrast Aufs looks rock-solid.
BTW aufs 3.x-standalone patches fine without any issue.

Replace:
urxvt - lxterminal <-- does lxterminal fully replace urxvt? When I tried other terminals that weren't rxvt based, we lost certain functions, If I remember correctly the puppy package manager stopped working.
epdfview - evince <--- this is a great tradeoff, and bring better functions, like opens comic books, but it does add some weight like gconf, and if were adding gconf, then why use galculator? Gcalctooll is way better and also makes use of gconf Smile, its really linux's best somewhat small calculator.
cgtkcalc - galculator

If only the problem were that simple. If I remember correctly, including wl causes a number of broadcom cards not to work. And not including it causes a number of cards not to work. The best we can do is include it and blacklist it. I would suspect that newer kernels would have better broadcom support, but I don't know that for sure.

How long ago did floppy drives become obsolete - at least a decade right? I think machines older than that are not in our target demographic.

I don't intend to heavily customize and patch the kernel specifically for netbooks. I also have stopped work on Puppeee and Fluppy, in favor of getting some of these changes into the mainline if possible.

I do intend to test on the eee and try to only include programs that fit on smallish screens, and to make sure power management is working.


Thats great!!!

The community wasnt the same without you here, im very glad you are back, puppeee and fluppy where the most useful and important releases in the puppy community in my opinion and im very glad that you are heading another distro.

welcome back jemimah!

I haven't decided on kernel yet. I like to stick with one Barry is using, so it gets thoroughly tested. I've had some weird experiences with the 3.x kernel so far but its possible that new and better kernels will be released before this project is ready for release.

AFAIK unionfs hasn't been stable enough for puppy in many years. AUFS definitely.

I think booting from usb and then suspending is going to be a problem depending on whether the BIOS of your machines leave power on to the usb port during suspend or not. I've had machines where the built in usb cardreader works great after suspend, but the usb ports do not.

We can pull urxvt, but we need to leave rxvt in for the ppm and a few other functions. (Also we might want to add xterm because src2pkg needs it - I really want to work on getting src2pkg working in our devx because there's a number of situations where src2pkg works a ton better than new2dir and you get true drag and drop compile functionality [when it works])

Yes, we'll need gconf, that gets us a number of great apps, like ucview, and grandr.

I'm not familiar with gcalctool. If it's better, lets go for it. What I like about galculator is that the UI is very simple initially, but if you need a more complex calculator, it transforms into the UI you want.
