PostPosted: Thu 20 Sep 2012, 02:41    Post subject: Logic changes incorporated into woof  

Heads up...

BarryK has announced:
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02995
that rerwin's rerwin_woof_fixes-delta-3f.pet has been added to woof.

This means that new woof based pups from now on will come ready equipped with rerwin's pup_event_backend_modprobe with extended preference processing

At the same time Barry has also decided to move the various "firmware" packages out into separate pets which pup builders will need to include in their pup builds. (although the theory is they can be "retrofitted" if the builders forget them or choose not to include them).

In preparation, I will shortly rearrange post #1 to make the rerwin_woof_fixes-delta-3f method the "preferred" one.

[EDIT] 21 September 2012 - this has now been done.[/EDIT]

Cheers
peebee

A new Version 11 - 24 October 2012 (download 499 onwards) of the multi-kernel pet in post #1 has been uploaded.

The only difference is that the multi-kernel pet now directly supports the recently released Precise 5.4 version of puppy.

Cheers

Thanks peebee,

Now what EXACTLY do I need to integrate these into their respective builds at build time? I will ship with wl in final so might as well get it in to the next and hopefully final beta for a bit of testing. I have settled on these kernels unless of course their is some major issue with them. I hope not, that is why I have been following the LTS branches.

Cheers

Hi Mick

Should I construct 2 pets just for you Smile 2* 1MB

Or 1 pet with drivers for both kernels? (2MB+)

Or....

Do you foresee the wl driver itself being included in the iso (its 1MB), or will the pet be available in the repository?

There are various ways we could go - I'm happy to go whichever you want.

Barry for precise has chosen to go with a specialised pet built into the iso. He could have gone with delta's built-in and the multi-kernel pet in the repository....but didn't.

My feeling is that having 1 multi-kernel pet is the most flexible...

My aim for the "official" puppies is that the one multi-kernel pet will have the delta files included - so if you've fixed on the kernels now I can put the slacko deltas into the pet.

Cheers
Peter

I want to include it in the iso, so 2 separate pets will be preferred I think Smile

PostPosted: Sun 18 Nov 2012, 05:59    Post subject: Pet add-on no longer required  

Update:

Precise 5.4.2 k3.2.29 (the pae version) from BarryK now has the wl driver built-in to the iso.

(n.b. Retro-Precise 5.4.2 k3.2.32 nopae still requires the add-on pet in post #1)

Both Slacko 5.4 k3.2.33-4g & k3.4.17-PAE from 01micko also have the wl driver built-in to the isos.

Upup-Precise 54X4 k3.2.29 from pemasu comes similarly equipped OOTB.

Cheers
peebee

PostPosted: Sun 10 Feb 2013, 14:11    Post subject: Delta pet for Slacko 5.4.0.2  

[EDIT]This post is already out of date as 01micko has uploaded the next testing version 5.4.0.3 in which he has reverted to the 5.4 kernels and therefore the wl driver is included in the iso.

I'll leave it here in case further 5.4.1 Beta's use the 3.4.28-PAE kernel.
[/EDIT]

I haven't needed to post delta pets for some time as most recent new puppies have the Broadcom wl driver built in to the iso.....

01micko has released Slacko 5.4.0.2 as an 5.4.1 Beta which doesn't include the wl driver....

The delta file for Slacko with kernel 3.4.28-PAE is attached in case anybody need to install with wl driver....

Cheers
