Howto add network module to a puppy distro? Sub_title: Need to fork? RTL8187 driver from MacPup525 into PuppyArcade 10
I have an old Compac deskpro pentium II 400 mhz with 128 Mhz and CDROM reader.
I have tried virtually every ligh distro out there and most refuse to even boot halfway, and others like SlitaZ shows up with a fontsize just not readable on my HDMI monitor.
All the puppy seem to work real well but MacPup525 seemed a bit slow, and i will mostly use it to emulate old computers (Atari, AMIGA). So puppy arcade 10 420 was real fast and responsive.
But i lack the WG111/realted8187 driver in Puppy Arcade 10
Where is the driver modules, in the SFS or in the INITRD with kernel?
If in drivermodule the INITRD can i just replace and rename the MacPup525.SFS with the PupArcade420.SFS?
(If i first use SFS converter)
If driver module in the SFS how can i fork a new driver into PupArcade420.SFS, and how can i extract it from the MacPup525.SFS?
