PostPosted: Tue 08 Dec 2015, 19:46    Post subject: LAN routing is NOT occurring  

Scenario:
DVD boots an AMD X2 HP touch laptop to desktop. System has acquired an IP address by the time it reaches desktop from the DHCP server via the wired network. FirstRUN operations are same expected operations as have been seen over the years without issue.

Problem:
Routing over the LAN is NOT occurring. I have no obvious error indications except I can not get responses for simple pings, or any other LAN service from one PC to any other.

And, I cannot route thru to the internet. I had this problem before, on a DELL touch AIO. But, it is still with us and occurs on several networks I have tested over past 2 days.

Asking community
Requesting advice to assist discovery of the problem. This is unique to this PUP and was 1st discovered last year in FATDOG and NEVER resolved. Now it is here, in Slacko64-6xxx.

Most important to me is why in this PUP this has surfaced? None of the other distros; namely mainline distros, mainline OSes, every other PUP (excepting FATDOG) has never exhibited this problem. So, its either some major directional change in network behavior after it acquires its LAN personality from the DHCP host or something buried in WOOFCE.

This is NOT a static IP, and the DHCP hosts do NOT do static assignments of the IP to this laptop/DELL touch AIO.

@gcmartin,

What NIC is in this HP laptop? Driver used? And does it 'remap' eth0 to eth1? ie. when booting from a pup that works, what is the active interface and what does it show in this pup? Output of dmesg | grep eth? Just to help the thought processes.

Those with ipw problems.. I need you to try something.

The firmware for these devices is in /lib/modules/all-firmware/ipw* (there are 3 possible directories)

Can you try moving those 3 directories to /lib/firmware/ and reboot. See if connection can work then.

Thanks.

---------------

Thanks Marv - dmesg output may provide a key for many connectivity problems.

^^ Just tried moving the 3 ipw* folders and rebooting, didn't seem to have any positive effect here it seems.

The "dmesg" output looks interesting though. Here's a section of diff between my 3.14.55 and 3.14.57 output:

Update to earlier post. The problem with laptop occurs with the 64bit, the 32bit, and with TahrPUP32-6041 on the touch laptop. I suspect it is due to its chipset. In each version, the distro discovers its lo & eth0 features, but NOT its wlan0 feature. This is apparent when the distro is booted to desktop, and allowed to settle for couple of minutes after the FirstRUN screen is shown. A terminal is opened to
Code:
# ip address

I will have to post a inxi/hardinfo report a little later today for the laptop.

The other, the AIO PC, is currently, offline running a simulation. Will have to test it later to gather its report(s).

Try moving only the files in /lib/modules/all-firmware/ipw2200_firmware-3.0/lib/firmware directly into /lib/firmware. That has long been the workaround for ipw2200 problems. However, I think this time the problem is other than that as I had to drop back to the 3.14.55 kernel for quite a different NIC also. My guess is a depreciated 'user helper' component in the newer kernels. See the line with that entry in unicorn316386's posted dmesg above comparing the two kernels.

Update: Went and picked up an ipw2200 laptop that was due for software updates. Ran 32 bit 6.3.0.1 with the stock kernel, no connection. Reran with the 3.14.55 kernel, connection fine. Back to the 3.14.57 kernel, did the direct copy I outlined above and rebooted. Connection fine.
No 'user helper' error messages in dmesg. Posting from it now.

Edit: Kernel dropback mentioned in green above was due to slow booting only, not NIC related. Too many pups-in-the-pot.

Marv, maybe you or someone else wants to help: I just put this new slacko from 01micko on my hand-me-down Dell Mini 9.

ifconfig -a can't see the Broadcom wireless card, BRCM4312, 14e4:4315
(SuperLupu 2 can see it, and connect)

So I opened the case and plugged in the Intel 6305 card; it can't see that either.

I'm an "old newbie", that is, a non-expert. Have not done compiling, kernel switching, etc

At your convenience, folks, could you suggest what to do?


Thanks,
Sheldon

NOT a broadcom guy... The most probable solution to that is to install the wl driver compiled for the kernel used and blacklist/skiplist b43 and ssb. There is a wl compiled for 3.14.55 available on the forum but not one for 3.14.57 so far as I know.

The intel firmware for the (6205 not 6305?) is not present but can be downloaded from the second link in this post http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=97276 (just do all the iwlwifi-6000 ones) and placed in /lib/firmware. Reboot and retry.

More generally, This version of slacko is very much an experiment focussed on Xorg behavior and might not be the best to use for a first install. Several others have larger firmware package collections. Not trying to be a grinch Confused

Yes, Marv, and thanks a lot for your reply! Magnifying glass confirms it is indeed a 6205.

Understood, and thanks for pointing that out.

Hello 01micko,

Remastering the zdrv itself for 3.14.57 to include these 3 files in /lib/firmware fixes the detection and the delay. Example

I'm a bit late to the discussion so sorry if I missed something. I have recently been trying to upgrade xorg for tahrpup which is a feet probably well beyond my skill level. Fatdog64 is my model because virtualbox mouse integration works on fatdog64 but not on tahrpup. I notice that fatdog64 has its own xorg wizard called fatdog-xorgwazard.sh that looks much simpler and cleaner than the one on tahrpup. Perhaps the fatdog xorgwizard can be used as a model for rewrites of the xorgwiard on other versions of puppylinux.

edit: Maybe I'm getting the xorgwizard script mixed up with the xwin script so I'm not doing an apples to apples comparison. I'll have to look at it closer when I get home.

Very late to the party (didn't realise this topic existed!) - but just tried the 32bit version on an Acer Iconia Tab W501 and the touchscreen works beautifully!

Well done 01Micko this is a welcome advance.

I am so excited by this that I didn't try any other functions. I will have a further play when I get more time but one of the first things I want to try is to see if i can make a switcher script (maybe attached to a desktop or tray icon) to let me use the mouse pointer for either left click or right click functions as desired.

At the moment left click is perfect but no rightclick menu of course.

I recall reading something about Ubuntu (Maverick?I think?) recently which showed something similar so i will see what I can find. Now that I think about it that was a youtube vid showing Ubuntu on a Dell Inspiron Duo tablet. I will try this Slacko on one of those Dell Duo's as soon as I can (cuppla days...) and report back.
