I have created now build which seems to probe modules right for me. ..... All this is because this new kmod multicall binary which handles now modprobe, rmmod, lsmod etc..kernel module driver handling.


Hi pemasu

Success reports:

Loaded your zzmod pet - after reboot the b43 driver was loaded and the firmware found and installed.

Loaded the attached backend_modprobe_fix pet pm'd to me by rerwin, blacklisted b43 - rebooted - wl was loaded.
rerwin wrote:
But one thing we ran into with 01micko's (I think) effort with newer kernels -- or udev -- was that blacklisting no longer worked for puppy. I provided a fixed backend_modprobe which solved that problem. Please try the attached package to see if blacklisting is causing the problem.

Cheers

Started again with a clean savefile, loaded both pets, rebooted and wl driver loaded and working as it should be.

Has also got rid of the usb 1 to 10 count on bootup.

Still getting inode errors on shutdown.

Cheers

1 - Zfind demonstrates high CPU usage and becomes unresponsive when searching in root ("/") -- must be killed.

2 - Geany 0.12 is very old (from 2007).

3 - /usr/local/jwmconfig2/panel-buttons is the old 'buggy' version, rather the updated version in Exprimo.

4 - /usr/local/jwmconfig2/theme_switcher is the old 'restricted' version, rather than the updated 'scrolling' version in Exprimo.

Hi pemasu & all,

My specs:
Processor: 4x AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 945 Processor
Memory: 3375MB (268MB used)
ATI Radeon 3100 Graphics supporting 1600x900 pixels
RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI
SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: VT1708B Analog
SB {HDA ATI SB], device 1: VT1708B Digital

Installed zzkmod-0.0.1 and peebee_backend_modprobe_fix-1.pet, rebooted --was necessary-- and got web using SNS. Following your advice to Stu91, used ppm search on radeon. Installed one, but perhaps not the right one. Graphics are now @ 1024x768. Installed most of my "usual" apps. No version of xvidcap worked. Anyway, progress.

Thanks Radky. I know. Part of the apps are really old. I found the bug in the DISTRO_PET_REPOS file. Fixed now.
It should pick now newer and more recent versions.
But the core system functions is the main aim still. Of course I will fix the application bugs, version things when someone posts the findings.
So....thanks Radky.

I havent started to fix the missing icons yet.

Hi Pemasu,
now running wheezy 3.5.2.1:
bootup with pfix=nox and afterwards doing #xwin when prompted:
result 1 = default video driver is nouveau;
result 2 = jwmrc menu icons are displayed; but on murga-linux forum, «new topic» and «post reply» thumbnails get displayed only if the mouse cursor hovers over it.
result 3 = tested gCAD3D 1.82 + libgtkgl2.0-1_2.0.1-1_i386.deb (squeeze) + libglapi-mesa_8.0.4-1_i386.deb (wheezy) + libxcb-glx0_1.8.1-1_i386.deb (wheezy) + libjpeg-turbo-1.2.0-i686.pet: works OK + rendering of jpeg images is OK (see attached gcad3d_start_file.jpg image);
result 4 = watch on line to a video on you tube: images are «jerky» ( = discontinuous) but sound is OK; (after having installed adobe flash player from Menu/Internet/GetFlash)
result 5 = assuming the video performance needed to be improved, have found
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-precise/z_mesa-8.0.3-up.pet
and installed - it has /usr/lib/dri/nouveau_dri.so for k3.2.13 - as i cannot compile it for 3.5.2 ... Crying or Very sad I assumed k3.2.13 is close to k3.5.2 ... Embarassed ; restarted X after installation;
==> you tube video performance is dramaticaly improved : image is far more continuous;
==> gCAD3D still works but has lost the jpeg rendering (see attchment); moreover no more axis labels displayed (shadowed rectangular flags instead ).
result
result 6 = glxgears does not display the red+green+blue animated gear wheels; it display a black square dialog box instead; in the urxvt console, glxgears reports about 1400 frames in 5 seconds (600 frames in 5 seconds without z_mesa-8.0.3-up.pet ).

So I believe an equivalent z_mesa-xxx.pet compiled against k3.5.2 would be nice to have... Rolling Eyes

hope this helps

Hello Pemasu

I'm no expert, but...

I think the confusion over Radeon KMS arises because it has to be enabled in two places, in the kernel.

It has to be enabled in the radeon kernel module and can be done with radeon.modeset=1 on the kernel line.

Radeon KMS also has to be enabled in the DRM kernel module when the kernel is compiled since there is no DRM command to do it later.

If KMS is enabled in DRM but disabled in radeon it is not fatal but the radeon r600g driver will not do DRI on recent cards and falls back to a VESA like mode.

If KMS is enabled in radeon but disabled in DRM it is fatal.
Radeon loads DRI2 and DRM loads DRI and you get a version mismatch error when they meet.
Xorg exits leaving you with no display or keyboard.

Charlie6. I am gonna upload next test build very soon.
And....why dont you install libgl1-mesa-dri using PPM ? It contains dri drivers.
It has dri for nouveau: nouveau_dri.so.
Libgl1-mesa-dri is huge package. Uncompressed 56 Mb. It is not my intent to include it at this stage.
I will create xorg-high.sfs for it when this build is at the stage I will create a repo for it. But not yet.

Dpup Wheezy 3.5.2.1 has been uploaded. It consists of addition of libdrm-radeon1 deb, zzkmod-0.0.1.pet with slight modification. Wheezy database has meanwhile updated several xorg - xserver_xorg packages....so the development still goes...we are in good timetable here now....
I fixed the DISTRO_PET_REPOS bug, now more recent apps has been downloaded from Barry`s repos. Thank you Radky.

This build has rerwin`s latest b43-bcma-brcm-wl logistic files including improved system scripts....from dpup exprimo thread.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=649167#649167

For my intel/ati laptop dual graphics....intel and ati graphics both works when I switch them in the BIOS.

So....I hope radeon now works. Nouveau works as it works, no nv_drv.so xorg driver yet. Intel_drv.so works for me.

To get xorg-high ie /usr/lib/dri/* ie mesa-dri drivers, install from repo: libgl1-mesa-dri.

Cups prints for me.

What does not work. Xorgwizard. If I run it, only driver which starts X is vesa. I cant get intel or radeon xorg driver loaded correctly. Error message is screen not found in xerrs.log and Xorg.0.log. Well...definitively something is not created correctly. Probably xorg.conf misses some section....just guessing.

Kernel sources link is in the first page.

Hi pemasu
Broadcom wifi (wl driver) now working fine with the new version.

Error messages about inode errors still flash up on reboot/shutdown - too fast to capture...

Cheers
peebee

Thanks Peebee. You were fast !
Good to hear that wireless module loading now works and that included rerwin`s broadcom logistic files seems to work for you.
pmodemdiag script creates now tar ball which includes the needed file for debugging broadcom logistic if there is problems. Include that pmodemdiag tar ball to your bug report...if you have need.
