Hi simargl,

do you have customized kernel sources for OS8?

I want to try building a driver for my bcm4313.

Regards tony.

Subject description: wifi now working with wl
 

Thanks pemasu.

I removed modules b43, ssb and bcma with rmmod. Added lib80211 with modprobe.

Expanded wl.ko.gz and put it into /lib/modules/3.9.6-ALPHAOS/kernel/drivers/net

Couldn't modprobe it, so used insmod wl.ko from a terminal in the above, where wl.ko was.

Then saw my router signal in pwireless2 for the first time and connected.

Will now have to do that automaticall at boot.

Thanks again, regards to all. Tony.

Tony. Great to hear that it worked.
Regarding modprobe. Running in console: depmod
would have helped. It checks new modules and creates the text files of existing modules. Puppies run depmod in every boot, Simargl knows if alphaOS do that also. I suppose so.

Personally I haven't had much luck with Frisbee. I always thought it sucked hard.

l like Barry's Simple Network Setup. It's simple to use and it just works.

Please, can we have it?

Quickpet would be cool on this distro, because noobs who aren't comfortable with Pacman could then download basic packages. On that note -

l want pet packages. I want the ability to run pburn and other community developed packages.

Congratulations on this interesting distro. Smile

Edit: Maybe you should install FlSynclient for the laptop users, also.

Before initrd.gz is compressed there is a function in build script that runs depmod for modules in there, for kernel package depmod is executed automatically with make install before compressing package. You can change that, but now, on boot depmod will run only if this file is missing /lib/modules/${KERNVER}/modules.dep.

You can install pburn from the AUR:: packer -S pburn
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pburn/

tony, here is PKGBUILD from Arch User Repository to make package for missing wl.ko driver https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/br/broadcom-wl. I've tried to compile it, but there is some error (maybe missing patch). Some lines in PKGBUILD are changed because in Arch modules are installed to /usr/lib/modules

Srsly, this pwireless is totally lame. And frisbee won't be much better.

So how can I use Barry's Simple Network Setup?

I don't know is it possible to get that program to work here, actually goal is to have something that is functional and after network connection is established you can install anything you like.

After I send them mail about new name, here is alphaos page at Softpedia
http://linux.softpedia.com/get/System/Operating-Systems/Linux-Distributions/ArchPup-96404.shtml
.. notice that archpup is still in page link ..

http://linux.softpedia.com/progScreenshots/ArchPup-Screenshot-96404.html
Anyone remember those screen shots? And famous snowflake wallpaper, still it's the best I've even seen...

Download count on that page for alphaOS says 1.500.
http://linux.softpedia.com/get/System/Operating-Systems/Linux-Distributions/
For comparison
Puppy Precise 8.437
Pear Linux 27,792
PCLinuxOS 72,640

Sure I remember, I was on snowflake for a long time, was that Archpup12.2.2?

You can see Thunar Icon- I miss it. It had a blissful user-experience somehow, sorry it was crappy in some other respects.

Yes, thunar had that gentle touch with mouse wheel resize icons or add bookmarks with drag and drop, it is still good file manager.

I started making new version, interesting is that harfbuzz package https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/i686/harfbuzz/ in Arch is now split to harfbuzz and harfbuzz-icu. Now Gtk2 and Gtk3 applications are free from dependency of icu, without need to recompile harfbuzz like in previous versions.

aufs-util refused to compile with error
Quote:
aufs-util for aufs3.0 and later, but aufs is 3.10-20130722.


so I had to fix it with this
Code:
sed -i 's|return -1|return 0|g' ver.c

The developer of harfbuzz got request of libiculess harfbuzz choice. Now ./configure has choice for it.

I compiled harfbuzz libiculess and now I have libiculess Upup Raring.
There arent many apps which need libicu or you can compile them libiculess. Libicu is just unneeded weight in distro, mostly.

Tested new AlphaOS 9 real quick

Using save file from AlphaOS8.

Resolution was way low and in 4:3 format(got a 16:9 screen)
Does this mean graphic card driver not loaded correctly?
I don know how to change resolution in linux, never done it before actually.

When trying to access applications submenu I got a pipe-error message.
I know this is not so informative but I will supply better info when I got time.


Despite seeing iwldm and mac??? modules loading during startup wlan0 interface not accessible.

Real quick test as I said. Maybe should try without AlphaOS8 savefile.
