It was tempestuous which brought this to our attention and then it was related to the Barry.

http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/brcm80211

Code:
# ls -R
brcmfmac  brcmsmac  brcmutil
./brcmfmac:
brcmfmac.ko
./brcmsmac:
brcmsmac.ko
./brcmutil:
brcmutil.ko


These drivers have mostly replaced the need of wl driver.

The problem. 3.X kernels dont autoload b43 driver in Puppies. Barry Kauler has not found solution so far.....

I have used aufs also with 3.1.0 kernel. I had problems with unionfs. Aufs patches worked fine for me too.

Acpitool needed to be patched though. It needed the version number patch.
I include the patched source here...dunno if anybody needs it, but if somebody does, it is easier to provide it than conditionally offer it so....

Dont take me wrong. I am not asking to use 3.x kernel or suggesting anything. I just provide information I have learned through my humble experiments.


Oops. I made pet of the source. I was going to create tar.gz package so that people dont think it is usable acpitool which will be installed. I think that compiling acpitool on target distro is the way to go.
I have fixed the upload.

How long ago did floppy drives become obsolete

We discussed this whilst you were away. Many "good" boards still have a 34-pin FDD header. I use this frequently to flash BIOS from DOS - it's the safest way. However, a far more knowledgeable guru than I pointed out that FDD is still, and always will be a fundamental part of Unix and Unix-based systems. If I recall correctly, it was pointed out that it's the only way into some long-serving servers, just as true, real scsi is still current. But check what the wiser birds say.
So, 'obsolete' may not be the best description?! Shame to drop it completely in Puppy as it's such a good repair tool as a live-CD. But no objections to loading it from PPM, esp. as it will likely remain in future kernels, just like ISA support. {We/I also discussed the 'last' ISA slot, esp. w.r.t. superior sound cards.}

Yes, I agree about floppy support
It's still used to input sound files to my ADAT and Akai s3000 sound samplers, and scsi zip drives are still in there, too
My current PC a supermicro twin Xeon server, with floppy, and has SCSI hdd too, and runs nicely on Slacko5.3SCSIPAE
Older hardware has always had a new lease of life in puppy....don't reject floppy, or drop support just yet, please

I wouldn't remove it from the kernel. It would be in the ppm for those few people that need it.

What kind of issues, specifically?


It's doing a 'cleanup of un-needed or outdated moz files files', some of which don't actually belong to it but are needed by earlier versions of TB and E. It can cause these apps to be able to read/get messages, but not have the function of sending.

There has been a message sent back to them over it. Fix should be in the upgrade if it's out yet.

also jemimah, may be worth having a look at fish, it's topic is on puppylinux.info.

regards to all

Yup - that's entirely acceptable, thanks.
You might have more difficulties with scsi and ISA slots, though!

This is an update to a double post - hence the dating may be weird . . .
Barry reports difficulties with Midori
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02613

The main problem I had with Midori was importing bookmarks
by putting them in
/usr/share/midori/res/bookmarks.html
I was able to import and use. No Google crash.

on my machine, midori closes when I close a tab.

Is this typical or have I set something up incorrectly.

I don't think that's normal. I haven't had that problem yet.

I built GConf with static orbit. Evince includes djvu, pdf, and comic support, but not dvi, ps, or impress.

Barrys latest busybox-1.19.3-w5c.pet which is in Racy, I think, has busybox with powertop included. Compiled in.
Code:
# cd /bin
# for x in `./busybox |grep ,|grep -v Â` ;do echo ${x%,}; done | grep powertop
powertop


Does not work for me...but just decided to post if others want to test.
