Yep, dev_x is all good. Cool

Good to hear that it works Razz

Do we have the kernel source sfs for 2.6.27.7 anywhere? I'm trying to install the Nvidia driver for my box but it complains about needing the kernel source tree Confused

Hey Paul (pakt)
I don't want to hold you up any longer if you need to compile a module


UPDATED to be a pet package
I re compiled the kernel and here are the actual
headers
http://puppylinux.asia/tpp/big_bass/Slackware_Packages/kernel-headers-2.6.27.7-smp-2-slaxer.pet

there is a readme but I'll post it here also

*********************************
notes on slaxer_pup
these are a "reduced" meaning not the full 21 MB include but complete
set of source headers taken directly from
the kernel source that compiled slaxer_pup 412
with the end goal of just the most needed
headers for making modules

you can not compile a kernel with these
that would require a 680MB of the full
uncompressed sources

I custom made this package then made it a "pet"
for easy installation for the "puppy users"
************************************

Joe

Big Bass it appears I owe you an apology. Wireless keyboard works.

I have SlaxerPup running.

The boot screen for some reason was cutting off the last line of the screen. I was unaware that the keyboard worked because nothing appeared onscreen. In fact it was there but just below viewable screen.

Once I actually typed puppy pfix=ram (blindly) and then pressed enter, it scrolled up screen into view. I had not gone as far as pressing enter before, because nothing showed onscreen.

Unfortunately still doesn't work for Woof though Sad

tasmond you reported what you saw
and that helps me

oh course it is nice to hear that things work
it is also important to hear what doesn't work so
it can be fixed

I have to edit the init script a little bit so that can be avoided

thanks for posting
and the good news Very Happy


Joe

here you go it is already in a *.tgz format . I renamed it *tar.gz so I could upload here

you would have to make symlinks

unpatched sources
http://puppylinux.asia/tpp/big_bass/Slackware_Packages/kernel-source-2.6.27.7_smp-noarch-1.tgz

I am uploading the source too

Thanks Joe

I didn't reply right away because I wanted to try to figure out how to use your package with my frugal SlaxerPup installation. Unfortunately, I couldn't figure out where (or even how - unpack and copy the files or leave it as a .tgz tarball ?) to install it (/usr/src/ ?). I did try both but whatever I tried, the Nvidia installer kept complaining about not finding the kernel source. I even tried adding the parameter '--kernel-source-path', but that didn't help Confused

I think I need some help here Wink

Paul

SlaxerPup saves the day.

I was looking for a distro to install on an old Averatec 3200 laptop I'm fixing up for my daughter. Hd install imperative.
The trick was getting wireless to work with wpa. 2.6.26 kernels will work but will not allow wpa connections with linux drivers (rt2500pci). This eliminates standard Puppies.

Anything with 2.6.28 and newer kernels will run fine but freeze up on installation to hd.

SlaxerPup filled the bill nicely.

Great job and thankyou.

Hey hayagix
I saw in another thread the rt2500 on puppy was a lot
of work to set up

did you have to do anything special to set up on slax_pup
also?

if so could you list what you did to help the next guy get
connected too

thanks for posting

The only important thing to do is update networkwizard to the Apr.1 version found in the bugfix thread for 4.2.

Other than that, wireless is ready to rumble out-of-box.

I've been playing with this machine a few days now and wireless has been performing reliably, with good performance.

I've changed the name to 'Windows 7 - slaxerpup edition' in grub. If I told the daughter it was linux she would turn up her nose, so for now its an experimental version of windows. She should be fooled long enough to fall in love with the operating system.
