zagreb999,
That seems like a reasonable thing to try, since any modifications needed are probably part of the .deb package, I assume. Since frisbee is made up of only bash scripts, it should also work in 64-bit linuxes.

As for dependencies, the main one is gtkdialog 0.8.4r514.

Please check with the developer of debiandog for any other changes he had to make to get it working.

Try installing the deb in 64-bit MX, to see how far you can get with it.

PostPosted: Wed 30 Nov 2016, 14:25    Post subject: Works in Lupu 5.2.8 on an HP netbook (Atom processor)
Subject description: Frisbee connects using WEP where Network Wizards failed
 

I installed the four files listed on the first page, having had to download them with Tahr 6.05 because I had no network connection with Lupu (or Saluki - both installed via the exe to the SSD which cannot be partitioned so everything shares a partition with XP).

Our router was just changed from no encryption to WEP and the Simple and Doug's Network Wizards will not connect but Frisbee does (it comes with Tahr).

Broadcom (b43?) wifi card works in Windows but I hate to use ndiswrapper.

I used a urxvt and petget to install the four files. After the Frisbee pet installed, Frisbee started and took down wlan0 and it all worked perfectly to connect. No reboot needed.

Very stable connection for half an hour of browsing and downloads.
As opposed to ndiswrapper for a new USB wifi card that was difficulto to find working XP drivers for and that has to be chosen every time you boot and keeps crashing puppy. That was our other option.

THANKS

My partner insists on using a version of puppy that works with acpitool which ruled out Tahr and Slacko and Precise. Lupu and Saluki work with acpitool (suspend to RAM). He was in the middle of switching to Linux Mint when I got Lupu working with Frisbee.
Linux Mint with a light WM can manage with ONLY 10GB hard disk.
I think the SSDI is 16GB total most of it XP. I had to delete exe installation files after use to get 400MB free space for save file.
Hiberfil.sys is taking up about as much space as Lupu.

Lupu 5.2.8 works with Palemoon (final Atom-optimized version), and I expect also with Chromium 10 (did not test on this netbook yet but it works on a regular laptop in lupu). Lupu also works on an ACER netbook. Both 2008, 1.6GHz, 1.5 or 2 MB.

XP took forever to boot and load programs. Such a relief to get back out of it. Instead of an exe installer I could probably just mount the iso file loop and copy files to sda. I had to run grub4dos (or edit menu.lst manually) because the exe installer did not add lupu to the list of linuxes to boot.

Frisbee and the two Network Wizards cannot find any wireless signal after I reboot. Tahr finds it. Something went wrong. Reinstalling the Frisbee pet might fix it (then never turn off the computer).

PostPosted: Fri 02 Dec 2016, 14:06    Post subject: Lupu cannot handle WEP  

I have Lupu on a laptop with pcmcia slot and stuck in a non-cardbus wireless B card with WEP and not WPA. atmel_cs.

The card is recognized but will not connect. I installed pwireless and then the frisbee beta 2 (from package manager) and the problem is wpa supplicant wants a key with a different number of characters than ours (which is 8 long).

A b43 Wireless G card does not work at all with lupu but does with Tahr. The b43 in the netbook was recognized by Lupu but did not connect except for once immediately after I installed the four packages from this discussion.

One solution is to remove encryption. Another is to use WPA, which disables a lot of my older hardware wifi including some Pocketpcs from 2002 to 2005, and also basiclinux (only uses non-cardbus cards which have WEP or NO encryption capabilities).

I tested our router wifi signal and it is -62 dBm indoors, -92 dBm at the sidewalk (better than the -101 3G Sprint signal) and probably detectable in the street. No parking allowed this side of the street. Neighbors have their own signals.
A few other houses around town have open signals - I used one during a local power outage.

The USB wifi card I bought from ebay crashes a lot. Can someone recommend a cheap one that works well with linux?
Or a way to make Frisbee work again with our netbook?

sindi,
I do not monitor this thread any more, because both Frisbee and Lucid Pup 528 have been upgraded to much later versions than lupu528-005 and the Frisbee betas.

Before wasting further effort, please install Lucid Pup 5.2.8.7, which also has a current version of frisbee. You can get it here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=739518#739518

For the soon-to-be-released version, you can go to the end of that thread for a link.

I am responsible for both, so am eager to assist you. Please continue this conversation over in the "5.2.8.7" thread (at the above link).

Thank you for requesting help with this.
Richard

PostPosted: Wed 21 Dec 2016, 15:54    Post subject: Lupu 5.2.8.7 Frisbee works perfectly  

The Dec 16 2016 Lupu 5.2.8.7 has a Frisbee that works perfectly with our WEP network, in which a laptop
and a netbook failed to connect to wifi with the other network wizards.

I then noticed that a 2014 5.2.8.7 also has Frisbee but did not test it. 5.2.8.6 did not.

My partner is delighted with the new Lupu and Frisbee and agreed to use Linux instead of Mac. Happy Ending.
