This is an extract from rerwin's reply:

rerwin wrote:
One thing I saw in reviewing the drivers thread is a conflict between b43 and ssb, which I am proposing to handle with a new preference, "ssb:b43". Since I cannot see what is happening in the cases you cite, I don't know whether that preference is related or not. Another issue in that thread suggests a timing factor, in that the troubleshooting advice was to unload and reload b43 a little later in the initialization sequence -- not sure whether that is still considered effective.

We might make more sense of it all with a little data to work from. Could you obtain from both the lupu variant and your failing puppy the files, /tmp/udevtrace.log, /var/log/messages and /lib/modules/.../modules.alias? And also the hardware ID of the device in question and the output from lsmod.

Before even doing that, could you tell me more about what is happening with the broadcom driver? Does b43 simply get ignored, or is another module loaded in its place? I am trying to determine whether it would be something for tempestuous to examine or for Barry.


Thanks peebee, but if what wuxiandianzi says is true I think we are a step closer. Actually /lib/modules/all-firmware/b43/lib/firmware is empty!!! (WRONG sorry, it's in /lib/firmware/b43),

wuxiandianzi, all firmware is decompressed. No need of compression as the xz compression of the main sfs takes care of it. This was introduced in woof about 3 months ago.

maxerro, answer is me.

yeah, the point is you got the build options right.
it was virtually unbreakable on 99% of machines (even pre-2004-ones), unlike 3.x.x attempts.

ALL b43 (broadcom wireless)


Hi,01micko:
I find that B43 firmware has been compressed and when boot it will be decompressed. I think it is not good way to dio this,I ut B43 firmware into /lib/firmware/ directly not tarball. And this can be auto detected by udevd I think.


I think??? that Barry did this for Racy522 and that this got into Woof and therefore Slacko5312 also comes with uncompressed firmware.... I'm pretty certain because I didn't have to extract the firmware in Slacko5312 - just the modprobe was needed.

Cheers
peebee

Dell crapbook boots to desktop.

1280 x 800

Dell Studio XPS.

Does not like being configured differently.

"""""

No wireless....but lan works.

Wired comes up as >>> eth0 >> pci nvidia MCP79 Ethernet

"""""""

No bark....setup icon disappears

Handy feature >>> adjust levels.....master volume was down.

I had already did it in alsamixer....but this is good.
Actually rebooted fresh....
need to run Alsamixer >>> Generic Sound Mixer
and unmute speaker etc.

And 2 testing barks....are very handy.

Hi 01micko, Jim1911, shinobar, et al,

In response to your post about feature requests, Jim1911 wrote:

"Please consider replacing Barry's shutdownconfig with shinobar's pupsaveconfig which is faster and has more features ie: It makes ext4 internal file system of the savefile as the default if the kernel supports ext4."

and you replied:

Already in planning stages....
----------------------------------------------------
"Already in Planning stages...." sounds complicated to me, - so I just report my brief experiment:

I tried shinobar's pupsaveconfig-2.0.1.pet with Slacko 5.3.1 Main and the save with ext4 was very fast (especially since the flash stick used had only medium/lowish read/write speeds).

I inserted a USB Flash Stick with FAT format and free space
Then I started afresh and used my 5.3.1 CD with "puppy pfix=ram"
Then installed and loaded the pet
Then saved and rebooted
Then used the CD with "puppy pmedia=usbflash".

----------------------------------------------------
UPDATE:
I saw no added option(s) such as "save" or "don't save" on rebooting. That does not matter to me, but I mention it because I was expecting (perhaps mistakenly) to see that option.
and apology - the option to save or not save appeared on my next reboot

Also, I would like to amend the config file so as to avoid typing "puppy pmedia=usbflash" in future if anyone has a suggestion.

My regards

Bonus.

Got a crappy Comsol 4 gig usb to boot using

>> Grub 4 Dos Config v1.7.2

Hoorray ...lost days on this little piggy.
It's own utility wouldn't recognise it.

Formatted as usual with Fat32.

I'm excited....RIP Big Kev.

Chris.

Hi All

Installed to me 8Gb USB Stick and its perfect on a 8 Month old Dell Optiplex 380 PC With Windows 7 & Broadcom network card. Configured card, made save file & rebooted, no issues totally perfect. Great job and you gotta love the Pup.

Hi Mick

I posted the files requested by Richard in my previous post - apart from the udevtrace.log files which are now attached here.

PostPosted: Tue 17 Jan 2012, 10:57    Post subject: CD Save & Boot  

Something Different!!!

Burned program using 'multi burn' to the CD... Booted with 'puppy pfx=ram'... Installed a few programs then went for the shutdown... Used the 'Save To CD' instead of the HDD this time... 'Went Well !'

Rebooted computer using only the CD Drive... 'Beautiful...' Everything was there as should be.

Went to 'Shutdown' and was presented (again as per the first shutdown) with the option to either 'Save or No Save the current session'... That is really really NICE! It would be great if that feature could be added to frugal and regular save file to HDD on shutdown.

Great job here Mic! Looks to me that 'You Got A Tiger By The Tail' and... it's fast, I mean really fast on my Dell P-4

Hello Mick
I am on holiday without internet connection (this internet cafe is ok though...), so I can`t test the new Slacko. But it makes me happy to see you with new energy Smile

Pmusic 2.3.0 is fun stuff ... if streamripper is included. I could not check.
Pmusic 2.4.0 is on its way, but won`t make it for this release. Event-handling is comletely rewritten so it requires a lot of testing. Please, do not be tempted if you see a new release.... we should wait for 2.4.1/2/3 before going official Smile

Sigmund
