Bionicpup32 8.0+1

WIFI does not work. No wireless devices detected.

This is the network setup on this computer:
Quote:
Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8822BE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WiFi adapter [10ec:b822]
• Kernel Driver: r8822be
• Memory Used: 768.00 KB
• Path: /lib/modules/4.19.23/kernel/drivers/staging/rtlwifi/r8822be.ko


The firmware for RTL8822BE is not in Bionicpup32 8.0+1


When first doing network setup.
A info window opens giving info on where to get more firmware and how to find out what is needed.
If you close that window.
There seems to be no way to reopen it, to read again.

This info is in a txt file /opt/upup/upup-hints.txt

Strongly suggest make some easy way to re-access this info.
Maybe by applications>Help

I don't understand that part.

I don't have a save file. I have a save folder.

/mnt/home/Bpup32 is the folder that contains the system files and the save folder.

just uextract the deb there

and then go into the unzipped firefox-esr directory
to usr/bin
and type ./firefox-esr in a terminal

The firmware for RTL8822BE is not in Bionicpup32 8.0+1

Update info and can anyone offer any help
I have found and installed the needed firmware (r8822befw.bin), but I still need the kernel driver r8822be.ko.

The kernel in Bionicpup32 8.0 does not have the r8822be.ko driver in the kernel.
So, just having the needed firmware is not enough.
If the kernel was 4.14.xx or newer. The driver would be in the kernel.

I am having problems getting the kernel driver downloaded and compiled.
There are some at Github:
https://github.com/search?q=rtl8822be
None of them will compile.

(YES I HAVE EVERYTHING NEEDED TO COMPILE)

I am new to trying to get kernel drivers compiled.

Any ideas? Idea

Hello bigpup,

The source from the "wsyco" github page compiles in my Bionicpup32 to produce a driver module named 88x2be although the package does appear to be rtl8822be so not sure if it is compatible or not. I just ran make and make install in the driver sub-directory.
Kernel version here is 4.9.163 though.

Try kernel 4.14.91 or 4.19.13 from:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/lxpup/files/Other/huge-kernels/

OscarTalks,

Thank you very much!!

Your last post did it. Very Happy Very Happy
Compiled and installed working driver and firmware.

I guess I was just trying to use the wrong package.
Github has so much to select from Rolling Eyes

Using it now to post this.

This is a very new, low cost laptop, that has some very new hardware.
With this wifi fix Bionicpup32 8.0 now works on it.

Have not tried to change the kernel to see how that would work.
peebee, if you want me to test that I will?

BionicPup32 19.03
kernel 4.9.163-lxpup-32-pae (i686)
Acer 5349 laptop

Just tried this pup and installed wine32_3.0 via Puppy Package Manager.

Wine is not recognized or found as a program or command from the console.

The actual command can be found as /usr/lib/wine/wine, and works from a terminal opened there.

Does this mean that subdirectories in /usr/lib/ are not in the path?
