I'm confused. Is iwlwifi being loaded but not being used or have I missed something?

Update

From running dmesg I could see that there was a call for iwlwifi-8000C-13.ucode but there is no such file in /lib/firmware.

I found a copy of the file on the Intel website and loaded it into /lib/firmware. Tried to reboot with a save file but was told that no partition was available Shocked Then dropped to a terminal with the following
Code:
Starting X, specs in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, startup apps /root/ .xinitrc
and there it hangs Sad

lemmy999,

Xenialpup 7.0.3 has some bugs with wifi.
I basically had the same issues you have with hardware support.
Also others reporting wifi issues after update to Xenialpup 7.0.3

The download site has just posted Xenialpup 7.0.4

I just tried it and it works OK with my wifi hardware. No issues.
Suggest you try Xenial-7.0.4.iso

Updated to Xenialpup 7.0.4 using old save folder from xenialpup 7.0.1

Update seems to be working OK.
Wifi working OK with setup from old save file.

This does seem to be a good bug fix for my wifi hardware issues updating to Xenialpup 7.0.3

he he ...beat me to it!

yes xenialpup 7.0.4 uploaded.

the kernel has been recompiled and more firmware added, hopefully it'll fix the various driver problems people have been having.
the kernel for xenialpup has been a propper headache, multiple times now i've been in the middle of uploading the iso and then suddenly discover massive problems on one of my available test computers.

swapped powerapplet-tray for qbat, as the former doesn't seem to work on some dell latitude laptops.

add libvdpau_va_gl

broken
samba/yassm is still broken ,,,, not looked at that yet.
some dbus error messages in /var/log/Xorg.0.log

hi artsown,

from the xenial where your wireless works, can run menu>>system>>pup-sysinfo. click the 'Devices' tab then choose 'Network' this should show which kernel module it's using. i can then add it.

cheers

hi artsown,
rt2500pci.ko is in 7.0.4 and apparently doesn't require any firmware.
i've had some oddness using savefiles from 7.0.3 with the new iso, so try booting 7.0.4 without an old save if you've not done that already.

if that fails have a look through /var/log/messages for any clues... or attach a

Phil,

I've tried 7.0.3 and 7.0.4 and in both cases there has been a problem with Palemoon. After a while, the swap partition starts to fill, although RAM usage is fine. Eventually the swap partition fills, and then CPU hits 100% and everything slows to a crawl. Closing Palemoon cures the problem.
This morning (using 703), I ran Seamonkey 2.20 (from mnt/home) and had no problems.

Phil, I'm now getting wifi ok on 7.0.4 using no Save file or
using the old one and opting to upgrade. I dunno what
happened when I first tried 7.0.4.

Keef,

Palemoon, are you using the latest version 26.4.0.1?
