In the kernel source sfs, the headers are in :

/usr/src/linux/include/
/usr/src/linux/usr/include/


Thanks Keef !

Hi sc0ttman,

I will add ncurses-term_6.0+20161126-1+deb9u2 to RC4.

Hi cthisbear,

From perdido's rtl8812au-5.1.5_k4.1.48.pet I will include the following in the 4.1.48 iso of RC4:

/lib/modules/4.1.48/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8812au.ko

Thanks

Hi radky,

Just a follow up on virtualbox... I booted a fresh RC3 and tried following your instructions as I understood them:

1. I used "SFS Load on-the-fly" to load the "kernel-sources-4.9.131-stretch.sfs" and the devx

2. I installed the VirtualBox .deb from their website for i386

3. I run the command you gave me ... But I got...

Code:
# /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
vboxdrv.sh: Stopping VirtualBox services.
vboxdrv.sh: Starting VirtualBox services.
vboxdrv.sh: Building VirtualBox kernel modules.
This system is currently not set up to build kernel modules.
Please install the Linux kernel "header" files matching the current kernel
for adding new hardware support to the system.


Not sure what I am doing wrong.. Probably something dumb..

Thanks for the ListDD tip... I hadn't seen that!

BTW, if Pkg is installed, you can also do this in the terminal:

pkg ldd <pkgname>

(where <pkgname> is an installed package:)

Code:
# pkg ldd virtualbox
Searching for missing dependencies.. Please wait.
WARNING: virtualbox-5.2 has missing dependencies:
  /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxTestOGL:
    libQt5Core.so.5 => not found
  libQt5OpenGL.so.5 => not found
  libQt5Widgets.so.5 => not found
  /usr/lib/virtualbox/kchmviewer:
    libQt5Core.so.5 => not found
  libQt5Gui.so.5 => not found
  libQt5Widgets.so.5 => not found
  libQt5PrintSupport.so.5 => not found


... which is probably broken.. so I might steal your ListDD code for Pkg Wink
----

norgo, thanks for the info, I will try your instructions and downloads next time round to see if that works..

-----

I really would like to know how to build the modules myself tho...
Just to know what I'm doing wrong and learn something..

Ideally I wanna build a headless-only Vbox package, and just use vbox,sh to manage the VMs ...
.. then re-build it on different pups..

Cheers

Hi sc0ttman,

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1007680#1007680

Make sure the kernel sources match the kernel in use. For example, Dpup Stretch 7.5 RC3 is available in two iso formats, one with the 4.1.48 kernel and one with 4.9.101. The corresponding kernel sources are available in the first post of this thread.

Note: RC4 (not yet released) will have an updated 4.9.X kernel, possibly 4.9.135.

Hi radky,

Since you plan on changing kernels in next release here are the sources
for the rtl8812au driver

Subject description: not loading driver
 

I've done a frugal install of rc3 on two different laptops. When I open FbBox Control Center>Hardware>Touchpad a message opens saying that the Synaptics driver is not loaded. These are laptops that other Puppies load the drivers.

Thanks

PostPosted: Thu 01 Nov 2018, 15:35    Post subject: pschedule 1.1.6 not working after reboot in rc3  

A task created in pschedule will run correctly in that session, but will not run after reboot. I found this topic that discusses this issue:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=106344&sid=c25b085d33d5b9c060fe4ab0d68ccbf7

Using information from that I found that pschedule started buzybox crond when the task is created but does not restart buzybox crond after a reboot. I fixed the problem by putting the script file cron_start.sh in the Startup directory.

There are probably better ways to fix it, but this one is simple and works.
cron_start.sh.zip
Description  unzip and put in Startup directory
zip

@wathcdog
That worked perfect, thanks

@radky
Should this be detected and loaded on install?

@WiZard,

While in Dpup Stretch, please run the following in a terminal and post the output.

Code:
egrep -i 'synap|alps|etps|elan' /proc/bus/input/devices


Thanks

PostPosted: Fri 02 Nov 2018, 16:10    Post subject: Synaptics touchpad driver  

Hi radky,
I think I found the synaptics driver problem and it is my fault. Normally when adopting a new Puppy I set it all up on my desktop computer, remaster it and then install that on the other computers. This time I could not successfully remaster rc3 so when I installed it to the laptops I also copied the save file from the desktop. I 'm pretty sure that kept puppy from finding the touchpad device and loading the driver.

To test it I booted one of the laptops without the save file and it did find the touchpad and load the driver.

Let me know if you still want me to test with the egrep code you sent.

Thanks
wiz

Both of perdido's pets work without a reboot needed for this Simplecom.

rtl8812au-5.1.5_k4.1.48.pet

rtl8812au_rtl8821au-4.3.20_k4.1.48.pet

for Simplecom NW601 Wireless USB

were tested by me twice -- booting in a pristine Stretch,

I Turned off the start screen.
Enabled firewall and
Next did the sound level
And I had no Lan cable in the desktop at bootup.

The usb device was not connected either.

I installed the above pet by perdido.
Different clean boots...different Pets to see if this method
worked each time for each file.

I did not Save and Reboot

Instead I hit ...Control -Alt - Backspace together
to go to the prompt.

Then I typed >>>> Xwin and hit >>> Enter

and came back to the desktop

I then plugged in the Simplecom wifi usb.

Then I Setup Networking >> Wired or Wireless

and Selected Frisbee

Which came up with Wireless networks showing very quickly

Added my password...and it took about 10 seconds to
be enabled and connected.

As stated I did this no save method twice with a pristine Stretch.

So you can save or not save.
But to work with a no SAVE to do plug in the device until
after installing and coming back to the desktop from
the prompt.

Again thanks...now even better this way.

Chris,
