Note to Barry Kauler....

I don't know if this is significant but I found two gtkhash
pet packages made by tuuxx
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=711057642&t=32700
that cause recent puppies such as Racy and Slacko
to not install some pets properly.

An example of a pet that won't install properly is stu90's makepet
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=47613

or my Right-click5.4.pet
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=67013


I think it was caused by an incompatible pet specs file inside the
gtkhash pet.

Just installed Racy on my Dell Vostro 1510. Everything works great. Well, everything but the B43 Broadcom wireless but that's to be expected. I'm getting pretty used to that. Just need to figure out how to get it working under Puppy.

Thanks!

In a terminal try
Code:
modprobe b43
dmesg

if the output from dmesg shows that the b43 firmware has been loaded try a connect tool - sns or network wizard are available in racy (frisbee works best for me but would need to be installed from pets).

If this gets you online then make it permanent by putting the
modprobe b43
line into /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Cheers

Hey! Thanks for the reply.

Right after installation, I tried using the network tools and they were unable to find the wireless device.

I didn't think about doing a modprobe to see if the firmware had been loaded. I'll give it a try.

Thanks!

No luck on b43 firmware. I thought the 3.x kernel would have included the drivers.

To fix Racy, use the Internet Connection Wizard from the setup menu. Choose Connect by wired/wireless LAN. Choose Network Wizard, NOT Simple Network Setup. From the next screen, choose the 'load module' button. From there, find the B43 module you need, load it and then follow the on screen prompts to configure it. It should work from there and survive re-boots.

The drivers and firmware are there - it's just that the k3 kernels do not seem to load them automagically.

Try the suggestions from DaveS

Thanks! Puppy actually makes it rather easy to load modules.

PostPosted: Thu 01 Dec 2011, 19:50    Post subject: Software Sanity Check
Subject description: Overview of what software works on Racy 5.2.2
 

It is amazing how responsive the system is on this notebook Acer Aspire 1350 (Processor: Mobile AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2600+) when using Racy 5.2.2.

In order to proceed I am doing an application checking and have found out that one of the most convenient tools I use is in fact is working on Racy, i.e. zim.

Here my short list of software I tried to get working on Racy 5.2.2, further down some software that did not work together with few lines of error messages related to it. If the file name is mentioned, I copied it over from the forum or other close-by sources. If ppm is mentioned in the file-name I installed it via the Package Management System of Racy Puppy.

Software that started correctly and apparently works ok:

    claws-mail (work in progress, basic setup done - see posting of above)
    AppStarter-1.2.pet
    calcurse.pet
    cryptsetup-1.0.5.pet
    cwm-cvs01122011.pet
    device_mapper-1.02.27.pet
    dillo-3.0-i686.pet
    emelfm2-0.7.4-p5-20101129.pet
    *(Firefox-8.pet - possibly conflicts with seamonkey)
    htop-0.9-i486.ppm
    keepassx-0.4.3.pet
    mfc490cwcupswrapper-1.1.2-2.i386.deb
    mfc490cwlpr-1.1.2-2.i386.deb
    mlocate-0.23.pet
    odt2txt-0.4-i486.pet
    qt4-4.5.3-1-w5.ppm
    ROX-Filer-2.10-racy-099-i686-cleaned-G-bit-unset-luci218.pet
    shrink-1.1.pet
    tigervnc-1.0.0-i486.pet
    truecrypt-7.1-20111030.pet
    vifm-0.61.pet
    vim-73-bkl-w5.ppm
    *(EDITED makes sqlite3 unasble, if zim is uninstalled sqlite3 works again zim-lucid-0.5.0.pet)



These packages did not work:
    e17-62731.pet
    ExifTool-8.26.pet
    fotowall-0.9.8.pet
    *(WORKS geeqie-1.0-i486.ppm)
    imlib2-1.4.5.pet
    Psip32-1.2-Lucid.pet
    umplayer-0.9.6.pet
    vim_7.3.206_no_gui.pet (I then discovered that vim 7.3 is included in PPM, see above)
    wbar-2.2.2.pet
    xplanet-1.2.1.4_5.X.8.sfs


Error messages:
umplayer: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11' not found (required by /opt/qt4/lib/libQtGui.so.4)
vim: error while loading shared libraries: libacl.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

*(EDITED: works on fresh racy install: [i]geeqie-1.0
new image loader 0x827ec78, bufsize=4096 idle_loop=1
exif read /initrd/mnt/dev_save/racysoftware/geeqie-1.0-i486.ppm, sidecar: -
Segmentation fault)[/i]

*(EDITED: error due to zim installation sqlite3: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11' not found (required by /lib/libreadline.so.6)

I did also try to get gpodder working, after - still mysteriously - I got it working on the mini computer Asus 700 with macpup 528 including long series of additional manual installs. I tried to reverse engineer the successful installation of gpodder 3 but then still with no prevail. I would welcome to get it working on racy, though.


* note on edit 20111204: geeqie worked on a fresh install. sqlite3 also works as long as zim-lucid-0.5.0.pet does not get installed. So I am still looking for a zim pet for racy, as the deb file from the web-site http://zim-wiki.org/downloads.html throws an error about not finding modules (using python from dev-sfs)

On the other hand, have you tried EudoraOSE yet? Still the choice of professionals!
