Subject description: Unable to compile driver
 

Hi all.

I am using a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo 7440 laptop.

There was a big bug about the wireless button. And here was the solution for Ubuntu:

http://fsam7440.sourceforge.net/index2.html

But in Puppy i couldnt do it. I dunno why? I am new at Puppy and lunix also.

I`ve did everything step by step and here they are:

1. Downloaded the driver. OK
2. When tried to use the command `make` i got this message:


Also there is another problem:

There wasnt a `build` folder in the /modules/2.6.37.6

I had to create an empty `build` folder to compile.

Hope i was able to explain the problem.

Shortly again: my wireless radio on/off button doesnt work. And cannot compile the driver file.

Thanx.

What version of Puppy are you using? Newer versions of Puppy may already have the driver you need. Also, Puppy cannot compile without additional software. Have you installed it?

It looks like you are using Slacko. Here is a PET for you. However, the source code for this module is not 100% compatible with kernel 2.6.37.6, so I don't know if it will work.

Note the instructions:
Code:
To choose the state of the radio when the module is loaded you
can edit 'radio' parameter.

   modprobe fsam7440 radio=0  (ON)
   modprobe fsam7440 radio=1  (OFF)

Also you can change the state of the card edit /proc/fsam7440/radio
and view the state in this file:

   echo 0 > /proc/fsam7440/radio (Turn OFF)
   echo 1 > /proc/fsam7440/radio (Turn ON)

   cat /proc/fsam7440/radio (View the state)
     0 = OFF       1 = ON


I was confused by whether "0" means ON or OFF.

Add your "modprobe" line to the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local.

Was it "radio=0" or "radio=1"?

Yep worked too. Cool

I've added as:

Code:
modprobe fsam7440 radio=0
echo 1 > /proc/fsam7440/radio


Thank you again for everything. I've spent 6 hours yesterday to solve it. lol Laughing With your help it's been solved.

Btw, how did you created the "pet" file? Is there a document for this how to do?

My puppy linux version is: Lucid version 5.2.8

Thanks Very Happy

josete600 has Puppy Lucid 5.2.8.
rcrsn51 compiled the fsam7440 driver for Slacko, because that's the version of Puppy that the original poster has.

Puppy Lucid and Puppy Slacko have different kernels; 2.6.33.2 versus 2.6.37.6. Thus rcrsn51's driver is incompatible with Puppy Lucid.

Yesterday i've tried the old pet "rcrsn51" has created on puppy 5.3.3 but it didn't work. If i download the new pet file, will it work on 5.3.3?

Thanx.

By 5.3.3, do you mean Slacko? The original PET was built for Slacko. So if it doesn't work any more, something has changed with your hardware.

The new version is ONLY for Lupu. It definitely will NOT work in Slacko.

Yes it's slacko. Nothing's changed about my computer. After failing with 5.3.3 i've installed 5.3.1 back again. The file worked. I guess something's changed about the 5.3.3.

After installing fsam7440. i've entered the code modprobe. and it has given a message saying cannot find fsam7440.

weird. Confused
