I have built a massive kernel for tahr64. It's 70MB. Shocked

Why so big?

It contains all the redistributable firmware allowed for the drivers that it contains. So if you have a quirky video, sound, wireless whatever driver this may work for you. (Certainly no guarantees).

Get it here <-- http://01micko.com/kernels/Tahr_kernel.4.1.7.tar.xz

md5 <-- 6e5bb08f959192c426a1ef876ec92bf5 Tahr_kernel.4.1.7.tar.xz

It may even work for you in tahr32 as it's configured to emulate 32 bit. It does unfortunately have the bug where you can't type before the OS is loaded, at least on my gear.

You should have a frugal install to HDD or USB to use it. Just replace the current vmlinuz and zdrv_tahr64_6.0.3.7.sfs and reboot. It has the DISTRO_IDSTRING already appended (see /etc/DISTRO_SPECS).

have fun with that.

@01micko

I did a new manual frugal install with my custom puppy iso and
installed your new kernel.
The builtin wireless works on this pc now, I needed to use a usb
wireless adapter before.

Thanks.

Edit: I did another new manual frugal install to use on my Acer
Laptop,I had to use eth0 before but wireless is working now:

Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)

The broadcom wireless on my macmini isn't supported, still need my usb wireless adapter on that one.

Will you be uploading the kernel source sfs?

Edit2: I made a new manual frugal installation for a laptop that has a
touchscreen,when I touch an icon the mouse cursor moves but that's it.
The mouse cursor is about an inch below the icon when I touch it.

Works fine.

Many thanks.

I'm rather new at this, and certainly not an expert.
I think the existing tahr64 also worked OK.

How to get my wireless light to go on? rcrsn51 helped me previously, but I've not yet been able to get (which) wl driver for tahr?
something about pupscan? blacklist?

EDIT
:
Code:

lspci -nn | grep -i net | grep -i broadcom
02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM43224 802.11a/b/g/n [14e4:4353] (rev 01)

Thanks again,
Sheldon

Tried it in 32-bit LxPup-15.06 (Slacko-5.9.3 derivative) - just renamed the zdrv - seemed to work fine Smile So not tahr specific.

Also loaded the 32-bit Chromium45 sfs with pepperflash plugin and tested it with BBC iPlayer and Youtube - both without any problems.

Stemsee and 666philb know the kernel config settings needed to enable a usb keyboard during boot (assuming that's the problem you're seeing).

Cheers

Found it, did an lsmod and an odd one showed up: ohci_pci

Sure enough that's it; need

CONFIG_USB_OHCI_HCD_PCI=y

Thanks.

@Billtoo. I won't upload sources yet as I'll do another build but probably wait out until 4.1.8 is released. Can I get the chip ID from the device on your mac-mini please? (oh, just checked and 4.1.8 is out!)

That's not the kernel, that's puppy's kludgy Xorg implementation. It needs a major overhaul.

The wireless adapter on the macmini is:

Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4331 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 02)

I'm pretty sure it's supported in my X-slacko-3.1 installation but it's not in Tahrpup64.

Actually when I tried to set up wlan0 it appeared to set up properly and the green bars showed up in the tray but when I run palemoon it says no network connection.

Thanks

Edit: I just unplugged my usb wireless adapter and rebooted, then tried to use wlan0, it's a no go.

@Billtoo

Get the original zdrv_tahr64_6.0.3.7.sfs and mount it. Find /lib/firmware/b43 directory and copy it to /lib/firmware/b43 on your system and then reboot. The adapter might work then as that firmware isn't in my kernel.

I did as you suggested but no luck with the builtin wireless.

I shutdown and booted my X-slacko-3.1 flash drive and wlan0 is working fine on the macmini.

At least I can use wireless with my usb adapter in Tahrpup64, I'd need quite a long ethernet cable because it's in another room.

Thanks

Just an idea for consideration after looking at @Billtoo's recent post.

For PPM future, can the PET Repo from other 64bit distros be added selections to the PPM2? Example Slacko64, Just-Lighthouse64, April64 and Xanad's contributions, FATDOG7x PETs, and any that are appropriate buckets of functions.


you could well get into a hell of a mess adding pets from those repos .... some will work some won't and some will break tahr64.

if you really want to then click on the 'add new repo' button in the PPMs settings and try to follow the cryptic instructions Very Happy

Build system is uploaded to github.

https://github.com/puppylinux-woof-CE/petbuilds/tree/master

Read the readme.md to get started as there is the facility for multiple iterations of the build sytem depending on puppy version.

Please Note: the vobcopy package is reuploaded so there will be an md5 mismatch.


thanks 01micko,

i've been through all the .pets swapped april versions for your tahr versions mostly. i did keep a few from april if they were newer and worked ok

i really like the dunst.pet ... works well with deadbeef and hexchat

the 4* kernels really don't like my nvidia card. 4.1.2 booted to desktop correct resolution and would lock up after a few minutes. your 4.1.7 seems better ...i get to desktop, correct resolution but if i drop to prompt that's it freezes with flashing cursor.

in the 3.14 kernel i'm using at the moment... nouveau fails to load, so vesa loads and i get to a working desktop but incorrect resolution. i am able to then install the proprietary driver.

hopefully 4.1.8 will further improve nouveau... it would be nice to have a 4* kernel as default
