Subject description: Got it worked with Version 5.100.143.3
 

Hi Peebee,

Thanks for this post!
Today I upgraded from Slacko 5.3.1 to 5.3.3 on a Compaq Evo N600c with a Linksys WPC54g pcmcia adapter. In 5.3.1 it had always worked fine and i expected the same in 5.3.3 but it was not at first place.
At the first boot it was recognized, but after saving the 2fs file and a reboot, it did not work anymore and could not get recognized the adapter.

After reading this post and installed the B43 Version 5.100.143.3 pet, it worked, but i had to manually activate the connection every time.
Then tried frisbee and that worked. It does connects slower than previously in 5.3.1, but it does connect! Thanks again.

PostPosted: Sun 03 Jun 2012, 18:47    Post subject: New All-In-One multi-kernel version pet attached  

A new pet that replaces all of the kernel specific pets for the 5.100 version of the driver with a single multi-kernel support version has been attached to post #1.

The way this has been implemented has been to include a base version of the driver and individual delta files that transform the base into the kernel specific version at install time. It is therefore dependent on xdelta3 being available (for saluki only you will need to install xdelta3 from the link given before installing the multi-pet). The un-needed delta files and the base driver are deleted after the kernel specific driver has been generated. The folder /opt/broadcom-sta is where all this happens.

It will be much easier to keep this single multi-kernel pet updated.

Cheers
peebee

Delta files are no longer required for Precise 5.4 - they are now built in to the multi-kernel pet

PostPosted: Sat 25 Aug 2012, 07:15    Post subject: New version uploaded  

Version 9 uploaded on 25 Aug 2012 - from download 343 onwards - see post #1.

For this version I have taken most of the delta files out of the Multi-Kernel pet and provided them individually as posts to the thread - the main pet still directly supports the official release puppies Wary and Slacko.

As before, there are no changes to the actual driver from this change so if you've downloaded and are using a previous version you can stick with it.

Cheers
peebee
