PostPosted: Tue 20 Nov 2007, 02:17    Post subject: still no WPA for rtl8185 wireless  

Installed network-wiz-update-Oct5.pet, no difference from previously posted results. Simplest approach may be to buy device with different chipset (rt73?) until one works, or use XP for internet until next release. Too bad, I like puppy.

thanks for your time

Hi tempestuous,

While we are on the subject of extras for puppy 3.00. What do we need to get a joystick working ?

Looking through the beginners help section, someone (including me) asks for joystick support about every three months without any reply.

With your experience of drivers I thought you would be a good person to ask.

Regards Tony.

tony that is funny after all the time that I've spent with puppy/Fire Hydrant that's something I never even thought of!
Oh well I did find out about the Linux Joystick Driver for you http://atrey.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/~vojtech/joystick/
now if we just get someone to get it working Smile

Hi tempestuous,

Thanks for the rapid response.

I had hoped it could be done through xorg. This method seems to require that you rebuild the kernel.

I particularly like the last line:-

After this, reboot, load any modules you didn't compile straight into the kernel, and everything should work. If it doesn't, well, something went wrong.

Regards. Tony

Regarding joysticks, don't assume that extra drivers are needed. I think that joysticks are supported by standard kernel modules already contained in Puppy.
The drivers at http://atrey.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/~vojtech/joystick/ are for the old 2.4 kernels.

There are many questions posted on this forum which relate to Linux in general, so there's no need for Puppy-specific instructions.
Just use Google. It took me 10 seconds on Google to find these HOWTOs -

http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Joystick_Setup
this relates to joysticks which connect via a sound card.

http://www.perturb.org/display/entry/513/
http://www.linux-usb.org/USB-guide/x194.html
these relate to joysticks which connect via USB.

Here is the Atheros (formerly Attansic) L1 Gigabit Ethernet driver.
The source code is from http://atl1.sourceforge.net/
I saw on the web that this will support the Atheros AR8021 chipset, but I can't confirm this.
After installing the dotpet, do this -
Code:
modprobe atl1

then run the Network Wizard.

Latest MADWiFi (ath_pci) driver for Atheros wifi devices, patched to increase preempt_scan value from 100 to 1000 (1/10th second to 1 second).

Here is the sis190 ethernet driver, modified to support recent versions of the SiS191 chipset which have a different PCI-ID number than earlier versions.

Here is the "Poldhu" driver for Swallow 1148 wifi cards such as the 3COM 3CRWE62092A X-Jack.
The original version of the Poldhu driver from
http://www.xs4all.nl/~bvermeul/swallow/
is far too old to compile under a modern kernel, but the source code has been updated here
http://sourceforge.net/projects/poldhu

After installing the dotpet, load the new driver -
Code:
modprobe poldhu_cs

This should create a network interface, and you can now use the Network Wizard.

ASUS Eee models 901, 1000, and 1000H
have an upgraded N-mode wifi device: Ralink RT2860
Here is the vendor-supplied driver, source code obtained from
http://www.ralinktech.com/ralink/Home/Support/Linux.html
After installing the dotpet package, load the driver -
Code:
modprobe rt2860sta

Now you can use the Network Wizard for WEP encryption, or no encryption.
For WPA encryption you will need to run wpa_supplicant commands manually, as explained here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=159336#159336
The -D parameter for wpa_supplicant with this driver is "wext".
The network interface created by this driver is "ra0".

UPDATE Dec 28 2008
These Eee models also have a different ethernet chipset: Atheros L1E.
This chip is also used on the Asus P5KPL-CM motherboard, and that's where I obtained the source code for this new driver - "atl1e", now attached.

I've installed Puppy4, and tried to load sis900 module (mi old pc has this one), but it's not working.
Do you know if there is a pup of this module, or how can I create it?

thanks.

pd: the ethernet adapter works fine with puppy 3.x
