Hi rufwoof.

My remark was a "spur of the moment" thing. If you want to develop a
CLI DPupBuster, go right ahead, you're probably the best-prepared and
best-qualified for the task.

~~~~~~~~~~

@all:
Back to José's work, the only negative I found is that it seems unable to
save the sessions on the DVD. (Or was it my disc?)

Now that José has come up with a wonderful distro, what's the point of me
hedging on and banging my head on a problem-ridden prototype?

I suggest / vote that José's DPupBuster-7.9.0.2 become the official
representative Puppy for this series, that 01micko write a press release
for DistroWatch saying so, that José's DPupBuster be referenced on the
official Puppy sites, and so on.

Remember, folks, my main interest is under-advertised, little-known
window managers that I feel have potential. I'll do it if I have to, it's ok,
but I don't really enjoy building Pups.

BFN.

Hello all.

Chugging along with copy-editing / development of DPupBuster-7.9.0.1.

I don't have internet card nor sound card detection. Therefore, no sound, no Internet on this prototype.

However lspci says that this machine has two ethernet cards:
Quote:
#### No Internet
lspci | grep net
00:0a.0 Ethernet controller: D-Link System Inc DGE-530T \
Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (rev 11) (rev 11)
00:13.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. \
RTL-8100/8101L/8139 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter (rev 10)
/lib/modules/4.19.20buster/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/realtek/8139cp.ko
The REALTEK RTL-8139 module is in the modules dir. at /lib.
How do I activate it? TIA.

And one sound card:
Quote:
#### No sound
lspci | grep audio
00:11.5 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 60)
in this case, I could find no VIA subdirectory in the /lib/modules.
Any insight appreciated.

BFN.

Hello all.

Slowly ploughing ahead.

I never noticed this until I needed it: BK has placed in /etc/rc.d a file called
MODULESCONFIG. It includes, among other possibilities, an ADDLIST string
that is read by the BootManager. You can use it if ever some of your
hardware is not recognized at boot.

Do read the interesting explanations in that file for the ADD and other
possibilities: they might come in handy some day.

I added the names of my sound card driver and ethernet card driver to
the ADD string. That solved it for the Internet connection, but it's not
enough for the sound card. Apparently, this is a known repulsion (?)
problem between Debian and ALSA: Debian seems to prefer apulse ?

More later.
