Most of the Pwireless problems can be resolved when one uses Frisbee instead. I pulled out all of Frisbee's files from Barry's raring-3.8.4.2 and made a pet which I installed in alphaOS V7 with ppet. Of course, the files can be copied over manually to their respective folders in alphaOS if one doesn't have ppet. Now, I am able to connect wirelessly or wired using Frisbee without the need to restart it after every reboot.

Below are Frisbee files locations found in /root/.packages/builtin_files/frisbee of raring-3.8.4.2:
Code:
/etc
/etc/frisbee
 dhcpcd.conf
/etc/frisbee/iface
/etc/init.d
 frisbee
/lib
/lib/dhcpcd
/lib/dhcpcd/dhcpcd-hooks
 99-down
 99-ifup
 99-release
 99-timeout
 99-up
/root
/root/Startup
 network_tray_modeset
/usr
/usr/local
/usr/local/bin
 frisbee
 frisbee_mode_disable
 frisbee_mode_enable
/usr/local/frisbee
 connect
 disconnect
 func
 hook_notify


However, I haven't tried that in alphaOS V8 as I am not sure as to how simargl's decision of removing /usr/local among others in V8 would affect frisbee's installation.

Hope this helps.
Cheers.

simargl... yes, i can connect with pwireless... to get all available networks in your area, you have to click "roam"... then click "refresh"... then, log onto your respective wireless network... to get your IP to show, you have to click "roam & refresh" again... (Note: these buttoms are at the bottom of the pwireless screen)

sometimes, you have to repeat the above steps a couple of times... but, it always works.

PS:
you must not like the "suspend/sleep" option? lol

my wife just purchased a wireless printer... now, she jokes about having to print documents for me... she uses ubuntu 12.04...

Here is attempt of a Simple Radio remake in Vala programming language. I don't know is this useful for anyone, but I will upload source so you can take a look and improve code if you want to.

To compile:
install vala
pacman -S vala

extract archive and type:
valac --pkg gtk+-3.0 simple-radio.vala
./simple-radio
simple-radio.vala.tar.gz

My wish list for Arch OS9 :-

1 A pop up window with configuration options on first boot.

2 Numbers lock off on first boot.

3 SFS files pre-loaded if present.

4 Clearly defined SFS files for compillation.

5 More Wi-fi drivers.

6 Ability to blacklist drivers in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.com

7 No more resetting of system clock.

Regards Tony.

Here is new Simple Radio player and it is now made in vala as one interesting experiment, some kind of expanded 'Hello World' Sample. I think it's easier to change stations this way, so this will be our new default.


What is good about it? It works and looks same as Radio Tray http://radiotray.sourceforge.net/, but without python, pygtk,... gstreamer etc. dependencies (their compressed size is more than 25MB). One problem - you cannot add new stations without editing simple-radio.vala and recompiling..

I will attach compiled program (source code is on my bitbucket account).

So vala is a programming-language that compiles to c-code and then uses gcc?

What are the advantages over c++ from your point of view?

Scooby, that may be too hard question for me - I can only try to explain from a not programmer point of view. I think C is lowest level programming language and because of that programs written in C are faster, but since C is very hard to learn, there are written some higher level languages like vala that are easier to learn but during compilation they convert code to C, so you don't lose on program's speed.

C++ programs that use Gtk are very rare, there is gparted and few more. I know for gparted because it needs gtkmm, glibmm... dependencies, and to save space I removed it from the iso. It's easy installable with pacman.

No, I will not leave it, but this OS is already functioning very well for me, so work has slowed down lately. There won't be many changes for next versions, only newer Arch packages and kernel 3.10 i guess.

Simple launcher application if you want to play with vala and test code compiling (also posting on the forum is good way to backup script...). You see that vala script has 80 lines of code, while converted to C it grows to 360.

Compile vala source directly
Code:
valac --pkg gtk+-3.0 launcher.vala


OR
1. Convert vala to C
Code:
valac --pkg gtk+-3.0 launcher.vala -C


2. Compile C code
Code:
gcc $(pkg-config --libs --cflags gtk+-3.0) launcher.c -o clauncher

Older releases of alphaOS and ArchPup available on http://archive.org. Thanks to ally for uploading...

http://archive.org/details/Puppy_Linux_alphaOS
http://archive.org/details/Puppy_Linux_Archpup

Edit:
There is a mistake in this page http://archive.org/details/Puppy_Linux_EliteOS
Keywords: Puppy Linux; EliteOS; Arch; simargl

I don't know is this based on Arch, but this line is deffinetely not correct

An early incarnation from simargl, based on arch packages and latterly followed by alphaOS


ArchPup was before alphaOS, and nothing else..
