Same here. My ethernet wasn't recognized either. Don't know, if SNS works better or not, I didn't bother to test the other one. And it's very unusual, that my ethernet wasn't picked up at once. I just forgot when I last used a network manager to set it up. At the risk of sounding petty and grumpy, I'm once again reporting, that there's no firewall icon in the taskbar. Its presence gives me peace of mind. It's like you'll have a better sleep, knowing there's a loaded gun under your pillow :/

Billtoo and Anikin. I suppose you both mean that there wasnt ethernet autoconnection. I suppose you didnt have to modprobe your ethernel kernel module driver. And so...your ethernet was autorecognized ie the driver was loaded but the internet connection was not automatic. Or did I decipher your posts wrongly.

Anyway...I should not have touched to anything concerning internet autoconnection. But....I need to test myself.

About firewall_state tray app...yeah...I still keep the base sfs quite bare. Just install that tray app from murga-forum. Easily found.

It didn't auto connect, I loaded the module and it said it was already
loaded.
Network wizard would connect but it wasn't persistent boot to boot,
SNS was.
Also have problems with vlc, I couldn't get the one in ppm to work, I
made my own but it needs to be installed every reboot and also started
from the terminal.
I tried starting it with the grun utility and typing vlc it would
change to vlc-wrapper, changing back to vlc loaded it but it seemed to
be loading every sound and video file on the disk, stopping vlc and
loading a file or directory works then.
Were you able to install vlc from ppm?

My ethernet didn't autoconnect either on this one. First try SNS reported that the interface had no connection. Rebooted the live CD and this time SNS connected. I don't usually have to do anything.

Broadcom NetLink BCM57788

Okay. About this ethernet autoconnection feature or better lack of it. It is new Puppy feature. The change which causes this is here:
http://bkhome.org/blog2/?viewDetailed=00105
and the affected files are listed here:
http://bkhome.org/fossil/woof2.cgi/info/b152ca1f61

I traced them down to /sbin/pup_event_frontend_d script and to the net_setup pet.
Using net_setup-20111016.pet ie older version and copying the pup_event_frontend_d from previous woof I was able to autoconnect.
The fix starts to work after swapping the script and installing the previous net_setup pet and rebooting.

I have tested this now several times and I think my finding is accurate.

So...for giving Frisbee place in Woof, the ethernet autoconnection was lost. Not sure if this was intentional downgrade or non-intentional misbehavior. It should be asked from Barry Kauler.

Yes, pemasu. It's exactly how you describe it. Recognized, but not autoconnected. SNS did its job, I didn't have to modprobe anything.

Billtoo. libva-x11-1 library was missing. I have included that to the build. Installing it enabled video decoding for me. Sound worked even before. Also matroska video, but .avi didnt or mp4 video.
Thanks.

Hi pemasu

Rerwin's new Frisbee seems to work as expected when loaded onto Dpup Wheezy with my Broadcom B43 wifi using the wl driver.

I've had some problems getting my Chromium-25 sfs to behave though...

The first thing I needed to do was to make a link in /usr/lib to /usr/lib/firefox called /usr/lib/seamonkey. Without this link chromium was unable to find libnss3.so even though it was present in /usr/lib/firefox.

With this link chromium does run if started from the terminal however it refuses to run when started from its .desktop file even though the calls appear to be the same. I don't know how to get error messages from .desktop files so can't work out what the problem is Sad

Cheers
peebee

Peebee. I tested with latest google-chrome. I did symlink most of the libs in /usr/lib/firefox to the /usr/lib.
I got google-chrome working by that...and also from DOTdesktop in menu.
I downloaded latest google-chrome .deb, copied /usr/* from my existing google-chrome sfs and symlinked those libs in firefox folder.
I might do that symlinking for next build so that they are there ready.

I didnt have any difficulties after above things to use my chromium-25.sfs. Not sure if I have ever uploaded it.

I started with a new savefile and I installed kdegames and lxterminal
along with vlc all from ppm.
There was a lib missing from kdegames and the libva missing from vlc, I got
those at http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages.
It's all good now Smile

Thanks

Pemasu, you said you:

.....might do that symlinking for next build so that they are there ready.

That would be helpful, and thanks.

Dpup Wheezy 3.5.2.5 has been uploaded. I have used latest woof.

I have added the support files for intel atom poulsbo graphics, from 01micko`s pet.

Download link: http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu/DpupWheezy/DpupWheezy3525/


Automatically start X from the fbdev driver and resolution only 640x480 on Acer Aspire One AO751h-52Br.
In distro is modesetting-0.3.0, which does not work Sad
If you set the xf86-video-modesetting-0.6.0-i486_dpup.pet, restart your PC with the creation savefile, then resolution 1366x768 Very Happy



P.S. Should replace in distro modesetting-0.3.0 on modesetting-0.6.0, then everything will be fine.

Thanks RoDoN. I will update the build. The ethernet autoconnection also is now fixed. The cause was my dumbness. It just needed that separated wag_profiles pet to be included. Barry K guided me back to the sober path.

I will rebuild the latest build and reupload it with those fixes.

Dpup Wheezy 3.5.2.5 has been reuploaded.
I fixed the ethernet autoconnection by including wag_profiles pet, added libva-x11...so that multimedia apps works straight from PPM....like vlc, updated modesetting_drv.so to the RoDon`s newer 0.6.0 version, so that intel atom poulsbo netbooks get better graphics, symlinked those firefox libs so that Chromium and google-chrome should work.

There seems to be problem with dbus starting in boot when pfix=ram situation. The service starts ok when I have savefile. I really dont know what is going on. Possibly some dependent service is not in use or my machine do things too quickly and I should add sleep to somewhere.
Anyway....when launched in console and you get dbus error....you need to start dbus manually:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/dbus start
If someone has knowledge how to fix this dbus autostart problem...I will grant him with gratitude and praise.

Download link in the first page.

Automatically start X from the fbdev driver and resolution only 640x480, then run xorgwizard -> Probe -> ... and start X then resolution 1366x768.
