Well, I now have a list from a zip file near the location I was sent to, but where do I put the information.

I found conky.conf in etc, but do not see any place to enter the code.

Hi BHINTZ,
If you look inside the /root/.conky directory there is the information for finding / setting the weather codes.

The file you need to edit / add your weather code to is /root/.conkyrc on the second to last line.

Stu, thanks for trying the wl.ko pet as i pm'd here is a thread for someone with more skills than me.

Since BK has suggested Iguleder to lead in a community dpup effort maybe he will be able to find some time for troublesome third party wifi drivers. Laughing


Thanks for the link jim630 - i will try to follow the instructions - i guess one needs to create the directory /usr/src to extract the kernel source to? also the kernel source seems to be rather large in size, when extracted first attempt has filled up completely my 512mb save file Shocked

AFAIK it's not necessary to extract the kernel source........ I just put the devx and the kernel_source sfs's in the same partition as my frugal install,load them with the bootmanager then go.
HTH.

Stu thank you. see already have some experienced help. I just couldn't get it to work so have nothing to add.

-------

oh this is what pemasu uses

"About Jim3630 wireless wl module problem. Broadcom wl module is not included in any kernel. It is proprietary kernel driver module and it is not straightforward to compile and isntall it. I have used hacked source to compile it.
Also it needs script to disable b43 and ssb modules to be unloaded.

I attached the working script which goes to the /etc/init.d and that patched source I have been using.

So....compiling whatever newer kernel does not fix jim3630 wireless problem. It needs that proprietary driver and script to load it correctly is included.
Remove the phony DOTgz from the script and give it correct permissions after extracting, they are probably screwed.
I havent compiled that driver in 2.6.32 kernel so I dont know if that source works. To do that is somebody else job to find it......

That patched source is maybe for the newer kernels. I attach the original source also...."

Thanks for the links Jim,

ok here is first try - i have included Pemasus script in /etc/init.d into the .pet so i guess it will need a reboot to for the script to run.

kernel 2.6.39-4 - broadcom-v5-100-82-38-patched.pet - download:

Stu90. I will stole your Dpup updater at some stage. As exchange here is fixed sfsget-manager-0.0.4 which now accepts names with _ . At least sfsget which I modified is from the woof which supports that. It can be that 15.8 woof /usr/local/petget scripts are needed also.
It connects to the exprimo`s sfs repo. It can be difficult to keep apps sfs files compatible with Dpup Lite, but lets try. Many sfs apps anyway will be compatible with small modifications.


Thanks for the update Pemasu - here is a version similar to the dpup-updater with a drop down selection box Smile

cheers.

Stu90. Yours version works nice. There was one typo at the end, laod > should have been load. You havent implemented sfs load for first run. I have used sfs_load a lot with first run, even compiled kernel modules and kernels using sfs_load without savefile. I think it would make things easier if the sfs_load would be aunched without conditional. People with testing, pfix=ram situations would benefit easy sfs loading.

If you have more sfs apps, post a link, pm or whatever and I will upload them.

Thanks everyone for the information.

I now have the correct location and have found how to change temperature to fahrenheit. I have changed C to F in the now report, but have not figured out how to change it in the today and tomorrow reports. The numbers are correct but are followed by a C instead of an F.

The laptop pet works quite well for suspend and I am very pleased to have a freecell that works so well.

I am getting very attached to this version.

Thanks a lot.

Hello BHINTZ,

in the script /root/.conky/full-weather.sh

change the two C on on line one and three below to F:

From:
Code:
    split(tmp[2],statement," C ") # substitute C for F if metric differs
     split(tmp[2],temp)
     forecast[++y]=sprintf("%d-%dC %-15s",temp[5],temp[2],statement[3])


to:
Code:
    split(tmp[2],statement," F ") # substitute C for F if metric differs
     split(tmp[2],temp)
     forecast[++y]=sprintf("%d-%dF %-15s",temp[5],temp[2],statement[3])

stu, thanks for trying sorry to report no joy. it would not load the wl pet as seen using sns and code lsmod. unable to bring up eth1 with code ifconfig eth1> giving error message no such thing. looked in boot loader to see if mod prevented loading but no wifi mod listed that could tell.

Hi Jim thanks for feedback - i guess you already tried this but on piratesmack thread he says to: blacklist b43 and ssb in Bootmanager then reboot.
