Hi Guys,

I haven't changed any settings so I cannot comment reference UK etc. I don't remember being offered any options except Xorg.

I've tried to get the wireless working. I have discovered from original box the pci card came in, that it uses the Ralink RT2561 chipset.

Now the site says rt61 should work but no joy here, it comes up as rt61 with unknown config.
There also appears to be an actual rt2561 driver as well available.

I've looked elsewhere for the driver but no luck. I've downloaded the driver tar.bz from Ralink but it's a bit confusing as it appears to contain 3 drivers and won't compile properly??


Hi could you try this and report back, I compiled the drivers for you.
ttuuxxx

These drivers should work for RT2501

Thanks ttuuxxx,

I'll download and transfer them to the troublesome computer.

In the meantime I've loaded it onto todays 'skip' find .

A 1400mhz Sempron machine with 512mb ram, soundblaster card, cdrw, 8 usb and a floppy, all in a case, maybe a bit scratched but not badly.
Can't believe someone threw this out Very Happy
I just added an 80gig disk, monitor, mouse and keyboard and off it went.

Runs 214 perfect, even started up on wireless. I'm using firefox right now, settings are just right. I've been enjoying the news feeds for a while.

I will get the other going though Smile

Yes, that chipset is definitely supported by the rt61 driver in earlier kernels (later kernels use the rt61pci driver).
But Puppy 214R/X already contains the rt61 driver, and it has been successfully used by other forum members. It would be worth doing some diagnosis - you should run this command
Code:
lspci -n

to make sure that your wifi device is recognised.

There's unnecessary duplication going on here. As I said, Puppy 214R/X already contains the rt61 driver.
And if you want an updated version of the rt61 driver, the best available is the version from the rt2x00 development project, which I already contributed 4 days ago - rt61-20090412-k2.6.18.1.pet
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=316232#316232
The version that ttuuxxx compiled is the proprietary version, upon which the rt2x00 version is based. The rt2x00 version is bugfixed and improved.

Hi tempestuous, I don't use wireless, but I do a have wireless modem, and I configured it not to broadcast wireless, due to the fact that I've networked my house using cat6, Well 4 rooms anyways Smile Anyways when I seen your test you posted, I was wondering what it would show, Could you maybe explain what that output means? So I might get some understanding on the topic. Thanks for your help

Hi ttuuxxx, i have a little request, could you please update the /etc/puppyversion file with the release version, now I have many 2.14 ISO not labeled. The 2.14.x3 version could work.

Thank you

I've also been informed that it will messup petget and other programs that call for that number. I was also told it would be best to leave it untounched, by a reliable source. lol
ttuuxxx
Ps almost finished with the next release, just have to test it now.

Then, We shouldn´t play with it (yet).

About the next release a final though, How much space would you need to have a browser, a mail client and a html editor, without using SeaMonkey?. FireFox is my main browser in Windows and Linux, but how could we keep it in Puppy without losing features that are already present in Seamonkey and using the same or less size?.

Well as that goes, I was thinking that people will not be satisfied with anything I would provide. During 4.2 build when had Seamonkey only no mail, and was using Claws Mail, people complained, Its just that there's so much choice for mail clients, Like Claws, Thunderbird, Seamonkey mail, simple mail, everybody wants a different mail client, I'll leave it up to them, I've already supplied a Full seamonkey package that can add, also I have a complete claws mail package they can add and the latest thunder bird is in the forum, and well simple mail they can download, I might make a installer program that they can click and it will download the package they want, As a wysiwyg editor goes I'll Include a Firefox plugin for one.

You are right ttuuxxx it´s very hard to please all kind of tastes, then a good (I mean updated, categorized and organized) repository for 2.14x could help. But the maintenance work will be very hard.

I use thunderbird or Seamonkey for mail, sadly Mozilla foundation don´t update them like FireFox.

Meanwhile the plugin editor sounds good, I never hear of one before apart from kompoze (it was good, although it messed up the html code, damn nothing is perfect...) , I personally use some useful extensions: Tab Scope, english dictionary and extended copy menu. Which ones could be added without increasing Puppy size and which ones are really needed?. (I didn´t take notice of plugin size in firefox before). Again the best option is keep it small and let the final decision to the user...
