Hi Peebee, i'm about to build what I hope is the final beta for mage2.

I was wondering that since there is no change to the kernel or associated components, is there a need to get a new delta pet or will it be ok to use the earlier one?

I do intend having it already built into the iso.

thanks

Hi scsijon

The latest mage2 delta is dated 10 sept 12 for k3.3.8-mage2-p64gsw-i586 and is attached - as long as the kernel is still exactly the same including the name then it will work to generate the correct wl.ko (as long as you have xdelta3 in your build).

Are you using the latest woof2? If so all should be fine as BK has built all the necessary support files produced by rerwin in.

Cheers

Looks like it's a forum error.....

I've uploaded the multi-kernel pet here

The smaller delta files seem to download OK still.

Which Puppy version do you have the problem with?

Cheers
PeeBee

Thanks, PeeBee. I've loaded and reboot but... nothing changed.

Puppy version: 528 jp (Japanese Version)
Machine: eMachines eM350 model NAV51
Wife adapter: Broadcom 801.11 Network Adapter

Would appreciate if you could give any hints.

Cheers

Hi jayjays

Derivatives based on lupu528 need a pet with extra logic as lupu528 doesn't contain the logic that is now built-in to more up-to-date puppies.

I've uploaded the pet with the added logic for lupu528 here.

Cheers
PeeBee

That is the older 5.6.48.36 version of the driver - pleased to hear it worked for you.

Subject description: Failure
 

Failure on Lucid 528-005. On the recent distros the driver wl works well for the public wifi.
However thanks to you helping us to improve Lucid 528, which is moreover a nice distro.
Sure i can work with eth0. But i have a laptop Medion P7624. I'd like to do not have a chain in the leg at home. The electric cable is fixed yonder on my chandelier so that I am not caught the feet inside.
It's not a disaster...
Bonne journée.

OK this seems as good a place as any to ask for help.

My broadcom driver is :

10:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01

2.6.33.2 SMP mod_unload modversions 486


I'm using lupu_525 on a full hard disk install.
Have been doing so for a while with no problems, when I set it up I installed the broadcom-5.10.27.14-k2.6.25.16.pet as I did with all previous puppies and all was fine.

Today I tried running precise 5.5 on a live CD and the weird thing is that it
sees my neighbours' wi-fi networks but not my own! No clue atall.
Some neighbours are using WPA2, just like me.

When I go back to my full install, everything is fine again.

Can anyone suggest why this might be and what I need to install/uninstall?


EDIT: I scanned this thread and installed the closest pet I could find (Precise 5.2 version) but I get an error message "incorrect kernel for this data".
