I was able to get the latest vlc to compile. I'll post an sfs when it's done processing.

Hey jemimah,

Sorry to bother you with this, but I'm having a heck of a time getting the right information.

As I understand it, the broadcom 4312 drivers are supported in the wl driver (or is it the b43 driver), but one or the other is loading/not loading when it should/shouldn't.

My research in the forum leads me to believe that the newer pups (lupu and fluppy being the ones I'm most concerned with) contain the right drivers and I've seen other folks say blacklist or whitelist, etc.

What I haven't seen is HOW to do that. Yeah, noob question, I know, but I've never had to try this before, so any help ANYone can offer would be really great. Thanks.

Most of my Puppy use is rebuilding old systems, but my Dell mini 10 uses this dang driver and so far, thank goodness for the special 4 series puplet that jrb did specifically for this wireless adapter. I use that distro a LOT on that machine, but would like to know how to tweak others to work as well.

I love what I see in Fluppy and will be loading it on my eeepc 701 as soon as I get it back from my daughter.

Sully

You configure the modules using the BootManager on the System menu.

I really recommend running the real Puppeee on the Eee. It's smaller, faster, and you get better hardware support.

I was able to get the size of PuTTY down significantly by statically compiling libkrb5. So here is the latest PuTTY which I will add back into the next versions of Puppeee and Fluppy.

Sully;

My neighbor has a Lenovo s10e with bcm4312.
He runs Mac Snow Leopard on it.
JRBs' bcm4312v3 gives the option to use "wl" and it works fine on that machine.
When I tried Fluppy yesterday it wouldn't see any wireless
devices; and we had to reset Airport from the bios to get Leopard
to connect again.

It's all quite confusing. Smile

Hi all

Trying to configure vlc for Fluppy, no matter which version of the source code I try when I try to "make" it says that there are missing /vlc/ files (have the devx and kernel sfs installed) and have downloaded the full source code.

Could a pet from another puppy be returned to source and compiled from there? (as I want it to be compiled for Fluppy005 and not something else)

Any other ideas??

Stripe


Hi there Stripe

I managed to get 'vlc-0.8.6h-engv5-1.pet' working fine.
However it is dated.
Sorry I don't have a link for it.

Thank you very much Jemimah

Were you just using
# ./configure
# make
# new2dir make install
Or was I missing a suffix? (--???)
as configure would complete but an error was always returned on make.

Sorry but I am just trying to learn how to do things properly
Thanks again
Stripe

VLC is a difficult one to compile. It's quicker for me to just do it than to document how I did it. Sad Plus I found some problems with the devX now that I need to fix for the next version.

It seems I've only got it working without the GUI. I have to build the latest Qt for that - so it could be a day or two actually.

Yes that vlc lite is a little dated, but it's only 1/3 the size of the
version in Lucids' Quickpet.
Works fine for me in Fluppy or any 4.xx Puppy.

There is no rush, its just a great media player for low spec machines, (my 800mhz 256mb test/spare box runs great with it)
Thanks again

To further add to (or possibly explain?) the bcm 4312 problem I was
having.

The usbflash install I did was with "bootflash"; using either the cd or
the iso as source.
I've found that the flash install gives a "no wireless" warning on other
computers, in addition to the Lenovo with bcm4312.
It also fails to install any sound apps., alsa, retrovol......

I used "universal installer" for the flash install and everything seems
to be fine.
Wonder if I can talk my friend with the Lenovo into another
attempt. Laughing Laughing

Hi Maxpro4u

Try running in terminal:
"less /proc/asound/modules" (without the "")
This will list the available sound devices

Please let me know what it says

It might be recognising something else as a sound device

Let me know how you get on

Cheers
Stripe


I did the above and there were no entries at all.

Maxpro4u are you running Fluppy on the 233MHz P2 in your sig?

It would totally not surprise me if the 2.6.33 kernel is too new for that machine.
