Do you know what chipset your wireless uses?


I have so far been unable to determine the chipset. It's a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop Model PP41L with OG848F motherboard.

iwconfig does not show what the 802.11 hardware is.

It is a Dell Wireless 1397 per this page

http://www.cnet.com/products/dell-inspiron-1545-15-6-p-t4200-vista-home-premium-3-gb-ram-250-gb-hdd-series/specs/

It has a BCM4312 chipset.

This thread has a link to the driver

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/network-internet-wireless/f/3324/t/19329916

Googling "Dell Wireless 1397 linux driver" leads to many links to install it.

MintPup fast glance at it.
Virtual machine windows. Install goes well. Users after install find the usual menu of puppies. Pets don't install (we were informed)
boot is fast.
Apt get has no applications new for us.
DebianDog is looking like Mintpup.
Xhippo and Xrecord ? il fallait oser. Bien.

I know Fred, no problem to test again but keep in mind I get the broken pipe message with remastercow too. Not only remasterdog and debdog-full-install need changing.
The reason to use ktsuss (gsu-root) for some scripts is because it will preserve user $HOME/ directory. Otherwise the cleaning will be done in /root directory even when you start remastering from user account. I know sudo also has option to preserve the user directory but the included gsu doesn't do that I think.

No, it is only example without progress indication instead simple message. It acts like a message in this case but looks better with text inside the progress bar. Similar to mount-wizard fix.
BTW rsync from Wheezy doesn't support "--info=progress2" option but "-avh --progress" works in all versions and gives output at the end in MB data copy. Tested with all available gsu (timeout, notimeout, xterm), gksu, gsudo, ktsuss, ktsuss2, sudo, su-to-root, su and works on my machine.

Thanks for the wireless pointers Dan!

Ether, if you can make BCM4312 driver work post the steps, please!
Didn't this help for DebianDog?

The following steps worked for me:
- connect ethernet cable
- Porteus boot an unmodified MintPup with save changes on exit
- synaptic: reload database, install firmware-b43-installer
- shutdown saving changes
- remove ethernet cable
- re-boot

Thanks, Toni, I made change to remastercow also.
It's good to be able to preserve $HOME and in fact all scripts should work with all *su*.

Attached remasterdog+other-progressbar-scripts.tar.gz.

The remasterdog script I tested 1000 times Smile with different *su* options.
The others a little less, but should be ok also, as they have similar progress bar code.

Might the progress code still have bugs, I promise to never burn my fingers again on any progress code Smile

I hoped to understand more, by debugging and testing, about the difference when running with e.g. sudo gksu or ktsuss, but still cannot figure out why, just changed things to the progress code till I was sure it worked well with all.

Ps, included also remasterdog-mintpup with progress code modified, your choice of course to use or not.
If I can help with other scripts for mintpup, just tell.

Edit: Re-attached with fix for remastercow, made a mistake with it.

Thanks Fred!
I'm not sure I will have much time for testing today but I will do it properly in the next few days and post the results.

Thanks again!

Toni

Hi Fred.

Quick test with freshly DD-Wheezy last iso frugal install shows remasterdog works from user menu entry and root cleaning /var/log and without errors.

But remastercow doesn't work from user and root. See the screenshot.
The test is without running apt-get update and just opening geany and dillo few times. Nothing much to copy in new module from changes. The progress bar stays as you see it in the screenshot and nothing happens 5 minutes and more.

I will test more tonight and tomorrow.

Fixed, made a mistake, was late at night yesterday.
Edited and re-attached the .tar.gz, see my previous post.

Thanks Fred.

Remastercow works well now. I get this in terminal but I guess it is OK:
Code:
sda1 sda2
sda1
01-cow-test-root
1.sfs
TRUE
466033
Copying files to /mnt/sda1/01-cow-test-root...
+ PERC=0
+ '[' 0 ']'
++ du -cbs --apparent-size /mnt/sda1/01-cow-test-root
++ awk 'END {print $1}'
+ COPY=457841
+ PERC=98
+ '[' 98 -le 100 ']'
+ echo 98
+ echo 98
+ sleep 1
++ grep -v grep
++ grep 'cp -a /mnt/live/memory/changes'
++ ps -eo pid,cmd
++ awk '{ print $1 }'
+ CPPID=
++ grep -v grep
++ ps -eo pid,cmd
++ grep 'yad --title=RemasterCow (create module from changes)'
++ awk '{ print $1 }'
++ tr '\n' ' '
+ YADPID='3001 '
+ '[' '!' '3001 ' ']'
+ '[' -z '' ']'
+ break
+ '[' '3001 ' ']'
+ echo 99
+ echo 99
+ sleep 1
+ echo 100
+ echo 100
Cleaning...

It will take some time to test all with every available ktsuss/su/sudo option and boot method on my machine but the ktsuss broken pipe messages problem seems solved.

Not really important, but if you want you can remove "set -x" at start of progress code.

No problem to keep the terminal messages Fred.
We must be careful using ktsuss in the future. For example debdog installers don't work with ktsuss (tested only in Jwm). No progressbar indication and:
Code:
/opt/bin/drive-info: line 36: fdisk: command not found

I know we start the installers with gsu and it works well but it is better not to use ktsuss (/opt/bin/gsu-root) for starting new scripts. I'm sure other included scripts will not work well with ktsuss because of the missing secure path.

I cannot reproduce this from where I am now, logged in as puppy on openbox-jessie.
Very strange, btw, why can't it find fdisk? It's in PATH

The gsu script can be changed easily to make it behave same as ktsuss ($HOME variable is e.g. /home/user) by using the -E switch for sudo, so in gsu script instead of:
Code:
echo "$pass" | sudo -S env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/lib:/usr/local/lib sh -c "$cmd"

Make it:
Code:
echo "$pass" | sudo -E -S env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/lib:/usr/local/lib sh -c "$cmd"

The only diference with ktsuss is that it asks for user password instead root, which is not a problem IMO.
We could replace 'gsu-root' by "gsu, including the -E switch".

Edit: Testing just now on JWM version I can reproduce the "fdisk: command not found"
On openbox version "/etc/profile" is different from JWM version, I guess I cheated a little with that Smile
