simargl,

The wireless 'hook up' in archpup is not getting it. the b43 module has to be modprobed, the libfirmware.sfs is 25mbs and is still missing the b43 firmware, and even after figuring all that out....pwireless2 isn't connecting. if it is for some it's finicky, because it's not for me.

when wireless doesn't work out of the box, and with linux having so many choices, it's kind of a deal breaker.

so i think we should work on that. i'll start now, and hope to find an acceptable solution.

getting my wireless to work would be awesome. this is the only puplet i've had a problem with out of the box. i use an older usb dongle to have my primary desktop online through my wireless network. b43 module is likely what i need as well. hope that gets worked out as was hoping to play around with this some more. out of the box ram use was shockingly low

It's incredible!! And thank you for making Grub4dos work smoothly. I put it on my Puppy fan website. (Maybe my little parody website can help).

Is Frisbee working for you?
Jemimah, the developer of Pwireless2 dropped it and developed Frisbee exactly because it was a bit "finicky"

It's not....running Frisbee from command line i'm seeing:
Failed to connect to wpa_supplicant - wpa_ctrl_open: No such file or directory
ioctl[SIOCISWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument

those two errors. after a reboot, when i first run Frisbee, i get nothing...but then when i press 'Wireless Network Reset'...it populates with the wireless signals, but doesn't connect to any. Hit 'Wireless Network Reset' again...and the signals disappear and won't come back until i reboot again.

it 'almost' works on 1212...i only get the first error on that one, but i also have wicd installed on that one so not sure if it's helping it out some kind of way....but on an out the box 12.12.1...i'm getting those errors.

Is Pwireless also running?
If you have the chance try this (if you haven't already).
On a pfix=ram boot, remove Pwireless it from init.d, install b43 firmware, install Frisbee_archpup-2. Do not run it. Save on a new savefile and reboot.
Note: comment out the whiteout removal (line 16) in usbsave, because otherwise Pwirless will remain active on next reboot.

ok i jus had some success with that method. Imma test it out a lil more because this first run was a lil rocky.

Is this firmware package you are missing b43-firmware-5.100.138-2-any.pkg.tar.xz, built it from AUR. Try it, if it works I will add that package to linux-firmware sfs, you all seem to miss that one..


that more than likely is the working firmware for b43...i'll test it to be certain. i still though think it would be more familiar, and more user friendly to add the /lib/firmware folder from a traditional puppy, into the archpup-12.12.sfs. it'll add abt 4mb, but subtract a few steps for the users.

12.12.1 looks OK at my end.

However start-pup-volume-monitor still has the typo error that prevents restart.
In case I was not clear the first time here it is in patch form

You may also want to change tint2rc so will remain border-less when the window border theme is changed

On a different subject, I can appreciate that aufs-utils are not in Arch and you may have problems including them in ArchPup, however this is a problem particularly if you start getting filesystem errors. You may want to revisit this matter if a v2 is planned.
And out of curiosity, what is the reasoning that the whiteouts are copied to the savefile when the savefile is in a HD but not when is on a USB stick or in pupmode5? Confused

Frisbee is really working, really well....and looks like the perfect candidate to fill that gap.

about pup volume monitor though, i noticed when i was taking the screenshots of the different desktops, that it doesn't seem to work with dolphin, and e17 desktop. I had to install dbus-core, systemd, pango, and everything else. but after that...it worked perfectly fine using the default gvfs/udisks2/gio. So i jus wanted to make that known.

as the time goes on i'm expecting to see some, "You know why my USB drives aren't showing up in dolphin??" type of questions.

Can someone that still has it, post the archpup-1204-2.iso somewhere (in datafilehost or something).
Does not appear to be available anymore.

It would appear that the 1.7MB libc-2.16.so is both in /lib and /usr/lib
