As James C has shown....Dpup Exprimo 5.X.3.2.9 has been uploaded. Latest woof2 commit used.

Kernel 3.2.9, core 2 and up optimized, SMP, hyperthreading, multicore scheduler, low latency ie preemptive kernel, hibernation enabled
Firmwares have been updated and differs now from what woof offers.

Pburn, Gnewpet has been updated to the latest. Should otherwise have about latest Puppy Apps from Murga-forum.

Kernel sources: http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu/Kernel_sources/kernel-3.2.9/

I would like to stay with this kernel for awhile if there isnt any big bugs with kernel.

PostPosted: Mon 05 Mar 2012, 06:21    Post subject: USB mouse  

Fresh frugal install of 5.X.3.2.9

Still have problem with logitech USB mouse (and keyboard) not being recognised at boot time. Have to unplug and plugin the USB device to get them working.

Looked in the logs, problem seems to be "hid_logitech_dj" module doesn't get loaded when device is detected at boot time.

If force loading of the "hid_logitech_dj" module, problem disappears.

The question still remains, why does this problem only occur with this kernel. (Same problem occurs with luki-13, but not Slacko, Racy or Quirky)?
Are there any other "hid_*" modules that fail to load?

Note: There is a catch 22 situation with the puppy interface for forcing the loading of a module at boot time, for the mouse. The left hand list contains only modules that are not loaded, but unless you have loaded the module, you have no mouse to navigate the interface.

gyro. I think you have nailed it. Slacko and Racy kernels dont have this feature yet. It has been presented with 3.2.X kernels.
hid_logitech_dj is new feature for logitech usb devices and wireless:
Quote:
With this driver, all the devices paired to a single Unifying
receiver are exposed to user processes in separated /input/dev
nodes.

Keyboards with different layouts can be treated differently,
Multiplayer games on single PC (like home theater PC) can
differentiate input coming from different kbds paired to the
same receiver.

Up to now, when Logitech Unifying receivers are connected to a
Linux based system, a single keyboard and a single mouse are
presented to the HID Layer, even if the Unifying receiver can
pair up to six compatible devices. The Unifying receiver by default
multiplexes all incoming events (from multiple keyboards/mice)
into these two.

I have configured it as module. I believe it should be compiled in, not as module. Now...I just wish I would have logitech usb devices...but I dont have....so.....I need to compile experimental kernel which has hid_logitech_dj compiled in to the kernel.
Code:
CONFIG_HID_LOGITECH=y
CONFIG_HID_LOGITECH_DJ=m  -----> =y
CONFIG_LOGITECH_FF=y
CONFIG_LOGIRUMBLEPAD2_FF=y
CONFIG_LOGIG940_FF=y
CONFIG_LOGIWHEELS_FF=y

I have in fact waited that someone could nail the problem since I dont have devices to test.
Thank you gyro very much !!!!

You are welcome.
I'm quite happy to do testing.

I can see that compiling it in, should fix the problem for this particular hardware.

I don't want to be a wet blanket, but, should it work as a module?
What about the other modules in the "hid" directory that start with "hid_", presumably for other hardware, would they need to be compiled in as well?

I wouldnt change the other modules preferences yet. So far...the usb logitech has been the only problematic one. The others are like Puppy kernels have been compiled.
If it aint broken....

New kernel has been compiled. The woof is now processing the packages....

I could be wrong. I got the notion that for to be able to use GetFlash
that one already have to have Flash installed. Then the script GetFlash
do work.

But I can be wrong. I failed at first on another iso to get flash too so
I made a manual install of an old version that I had laying around.
a flash...pet and then I hit the GetFlash and then it worked. Not sure. Sorry

Dpup exprimo 5.X.3.2.9.2 has been uploaded. This differs from previous 5.X.3.2.9 kernel 3.2.9 only with one thing. Logitech new module has been compiled in...not as module. I really dont know if it is behind the need to unplug and plug in again Logitech usb devices. But...let`s see....
It can be that Logitech devices would like that core usb modules are compiled as modules..not in as Puppy kernels nowadays are compiled. But that need is mandatory so that boot time usb stick...flash media....usb hdd will be recognized. There isnt circumvention on them. Uhci-ohci-ehci-xhci are compiled in.
Next thing will be to test adding /dev/hidraw support...there is now /dev/hiddev support only. It will be the target of next test....if this kernel...which is probable...wont fix the problem with Logitech usb devices.

Jim3630. It is progress then. I remember your usb Logitech wasnt recognized before.
About getfash. I am not quite sure what you were asking. There are 3 different getfash scripts around. Original by 01micko, improved by Shinobar and yad gui version by stu90. I use stu90`s version.
Only problem with this version is that the ping and download is blocked from James C.
I think that Adobe classifies him too dangerous if he is armed with latest flash.

If you mean the automatic flash downloader. It comes with /usr/sbin/delayedrun through woof and it is designed by Barry Kauler.

Yes JamesC could not remember. ha ha adobe isn't completely dumb although, you would think after changing the program 6 times in 3 months they would eventually get it right.

Luckily the flash downloader in Slacko works with no problem..... just don't tell Adobe before it gets blocked too..... Laughing

Hi pemasu,

When do you rest? You get updates out almost before we can download the previous version. Laughing This one is working great, everything tried works.

I had the same problem that was reported for the 3.2.9 kernel with Logitech mouse not being detected until the usb receiver was removed and reinstalled. That problem has been corrected with this recompiled kernel.

Cheers, Very Happy
Jim
