Majorfoo. Yeah. Icons are still defective. I havent touched to them yet. I will do the job when the core works good enough.
Abiword from debian wheezy needs gtk-3.0, so it is out. Gnumeric might work ok, if you install all the dependencies.

When you say that network is not autoconnected, do you mean that you cant manually get network connected. if you mean that, please post the result of this command in console: dmesg > dmesg.gz

I can manually connect to the internet - no problem.
Most Puppies I use auto connect to the internet on boot up

You are a busy fellow. Don't know how you keep so many balls bouncing at one time
Appreciate your dedication to Puppy and the new versions that you provide.

This is the kind of report I am looking for. Please PM me a pmodemdiag file taken when you first notice the problem upon bootup, so I can see if my change to the module loader is involved. Thanks.

Hi Pemasu,
Good news - report-video is showing radeon driver in use on first boot. Bad news - running xorgwizard after making driver selection it hangs at loading xorg.conf

Still problems for me with b43 wireless - it is not available on first boot - after creating a save file and reboot it seems to be loaded but the little wireless light is not on and i am unable to make a connection.

Stu91. Thank you of the report. Good to know that radeon works for you. Xorgwizard is broken. I have managed to restore X by replacing - deleting the files in /etc/X11 and copying back from /initrd/pup_ro2/etc/X11. Then the X boots with default driver just like when you boot first time.
I havent ever much tried to understand how xorgwizard works. Well....I try to learn about it.....

About b43. I believe this goes to your broadcom 4311 chip and rerwin`s new logistic problem. The preferences.log shows that wl - ssb axis fails:
20:04:48.022 9212 wl - Replaced by b43 for unsupported card (wl.conf)
20:04:48.048 8285 wl - Unload failed for module: ssb

Your b44 seems to load ok though. I believe your report is valuable for rerwin.

Indeed! Thank you, stu91. But the "unload failed" message is misleading -- it means that after wl should have been loaded ssb seen as loaded -- but the "replacement" loaded b43 instead of wl, and b43 loaded ssb as a dependency, so it looked like a failure to unload ssb before loading wl, but was something else.

On the assumption, though, that the replacement-loading of b43 is related to the inability to detect/connect the wifi, I attach a patch to the wl.conf file to skip loading of b43. Although this seems counterproductive, I believe that b43 was already started by ssb before ssb got unloaded. That was the way the previous experiment packages handled this special case.

Please install the attached delta package and reboot. If that does not fix the problem, I will have more work to do on a solution.

Stu91, if the patch works, could you determine whether the (b44) ethernet connection actually works, too?

That's not nothing! Perhaps the least power puplet RAM, the Turbo since.
Minor problem: the desktop is write, calc, chat icon, but the programs are missing. It does not matter who you want, and then install them.
I applied for the Hungarian language pack, lang_pack_hu-lupq-0.4.pet very well and stood over to the Hungarian language.
So far everything is working, congratulations.

Desktop icons miss the linked applications....and I dont know yet what I will provide for them. For chat probably Xchat or Pidgin.
( I have already compiled latest Pidgin-2.10.6 and used it last night in #puppylinux )
Abiword - Gnumeric - etc will need compiling....and I dont know if I will include them....or just put them to the repo. Maybe...maybe not. It is because I dont use either of them. Libreoffice is my app for them.
Xorgwizard is major problem atm.

I totally agree. I used to work with Softmaker2008-pet, rather like to use the same package, very small, 11 MB, and all-purpose.
The big question is to work with an older machines.
The direction is very good!

I have gotten bit forward with xorgwizard not working. /usr/sbin/xorgwizard has these rows:
#autoprobe...
Xorg -configure > /tmp/xorgprobe.txt 2>&1
#... config in /root/xorg.conf.new

but Xorg -configure does this to me: demonstrated in X with this command: Xorg -configure :1
(++) Using config file: "/root/xorg.conf.new"
(==) Using system config directory "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d"
Number of created screens does not match number of detected devices.
Configuration failed.
Server terminated with error (2). Closing log file.

It seems that autoprobe does not work right for me. It might explain something.

But Xorg autoconfiguring works. If I delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and restart X, the autoconfiguring selects intel xorg driver for me and X starts.

PostPosted: Wed 29 Aug 2012, 19:39    Post subject: Broadcom wifi  

Pemasu, stu91,
I have just now booted up 3.5.2.1 and I have the same Broadcom problem as sut91 and probably majorfoo. My BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller does not get detected even though its b43 driver is loaded. I see that I, as a programmer, mistakenly assumed I was responsible for anything that goes wrong with wifi. But in this case, there is another factor. Stu91's message log:

The mysterious "missing firmware" problem, even though I see that the file: "b43/b0g0initvals5.fw" is actually present in the iso (pup_ro2 layer)!
EDIT: My log shows the same thing, even though it does not try to use the wl driver, at all.

So, the 8a-delta package will not solve the problem and can be ignored for now, until we resolve the firmware issue. And I have no idea what the problem could be with the firmware.
EDIT: I will be including 8a in the experiment package because it is vital if the firmware is not already present in /lib/firmware, which is how most woof-puppies are set up.

And....why dont you install libgl1-mesa-dri using PPM ? It contains dri drivers.
It has dri for nouveau: nouveau_dri.so.

«why dont you install libgl1-mesa-dri using PPM ?» ...i have been often deceived by PPM working till now. But this one seems working better ! Congratulations !!

So have installed libgl1-mesa-dri using PPM and no better result about gCAD3D ==> same results as on previous post.

Here is glxgears snapshot showing black glxgears display (glxgears extracted from xorg-high-0.0.1.pet from dpup-exprimo repo); maybe /usr/bin/glxgears is not of compatible version; maybe nouveau°dri.so has also problem...?

Using nouveau_dri.so improves dramaticaly youtube videos dispay and video performances anyway Smile . (ca. 600 frames in 5.0 seconds if not using nouveau_dri.so !!!)

Hi Rerwin,
thanks for your persistence, this blasted b43 wireless seems to be nothing but a pain Mad
Do you think it could be a kernel bug with 3.5.2 as 3.4.2 works ok.
poking around i also got this message about format error as well.
