*jim3630, peebee (and others) - I know you are Frisbee lovers...


01micko I'm not a Frisbee lover but think if something is in a distro release it should work. The sns and connection wizard do not work for those who have new HP laptops and other brands with the crap broadcom wl.ko driver.

Frisbee does work for all those people because it rewrites sns and connection wizard's failed scripts.

Frisbee only appears to conflict with sns and the connection wizard because novice users do not know if they use Frisbee not to touch sns and connection wizard.

If Puppy didn't connect to the internet out of the box the first time I used it I would not have gone online looking for a program to try to make it work.

Around the world in many counties internet connection time costs are high and charge by the minute. People can not afford the luxury of reading online nor have unlimited download time.

Linux was a gift so all people everywhere could have a quality os with quality programs. Puppy strives to embrace novice users.

This was worked out in Lucid 528, 529 and numerous pups recently built so not needed to reinvent the wheel nor risk writing off potential Puppy linux users.

jim3630,

Of course your point is taken. If you try a pristine boot with Frisbee, can you connect?

I guess it may be worth the bloat of 1 driver (1% of the size if the iso Rolling Eyes , curse broadcom! [and with Frisbee about 1.8%]) to include for victims of broadcom.

I was hoping that the pns-tool may work for you, oh well, was worth a shot, it's only 3K.

Cheers

When pasting a long line please use the code tags for formatting, the forum doesn't handle it well, as everyone can see.

I am not sure if that firmware would work for you, as this kernel is 2.6.37.6, too early. Nothing changed with Frisbee or the driver, so again I'll blame the libs, I'll revert all the libs to B2 versions and bring out B4 soon.


01micko will have to learn those code tags. I used # setfont but as see didn't help.

firmware alone won't work without the drivers. maybe miss read BarryK's post that it would be in all new Woof builds. thought that would include slacko as it is built on Woof.

01micko pfix=ram installed broadcom_wl-k2.6.37.6spup.pet and your newest frisbee 2.2pet rebooted to find frisbee acquired wifi on eth1.

success!

Didn't that printer work ok in earlier slacko? I'm thinking it's a usb issue.. Barry changed heaps of libs with his "no xcb" compile fest and I almost bet that's what has broken it.. every woof there is certainly something that gets broke in Slacko Sad
FWIW, my canon-mp490 installed ok and prints from abiword. There is a bug with abiword, again from woof, .odt isn't working though the plugin is there Sad
I don't recall. I did update a save file from v. 3 and the printer does not work in it. Unfortunately, disks older than 499.4 have already been tossed so I can't go back and test again very easily. This report is based on a fresh installation of 499.5. The HP Officejet 6500 Wireless works fine using Fatdog 64-520 and Lucid THD 5.2.9. Incidently, 499.5 does recognize usb flash drives.

Regards,
Jim

Rob- is pemasu's the same? I know you've been working on fprot for a long time.

Mick,

I saw F-prot as version 6 from pemasu after I had petted it myself. Sad

I petted version 6.03 as on f-prot site, don't know if pemasu's is the same.

XF-prot version 2.4 , I don't know, I was unaware of the work done by pemasu. As you know I fixed Xfprot a long time ago and just continued on.

I left out the virus signatures as this kept size down. The user just pressed the update button and it downloaded latest anyway.

There is a problem with the icons which I noticed today, as i don't use it myself.

Mick,

For a first start item, check out the additional software/utilities.

I rewrote firewallstate code over as a flag icon representing the keyboard country. Could be first run then deleted if wanted. It's about 35kb

EDIT: Typical, one typo and USA gets a French flag Laughing Fixed it Cool

Tried it on main system, it successfully recognized and installed my HP C5280 Photosmart and I printed a test page after installation. Very Happy

That was a quick fix.

This is a list of the libs Barry recompiled without xcb which are likely to be problematic in Slacko

Code:
boehm-gc-7.1-w5c.pet
cdrkit-1.1.11-w5c.pet
chmlib-0.40-w5c.pet
faad2-2.7-w5c.pet
gphoto2-2.4.11-w5c.pet
gtkam-0.1.17-w5c.pet
lame-398-2-w5c.pet
libdc1394-2.1.3-w5c.pet
libdvdcss-1.2.10-w5c.pet
libdvdnav-4.1.3-7-w5c.pet
libdvdplay-1.0.1-w5c.pet
libdvdread-4.1.3-9-w5c.pet
libgnomecups-0.2.3-w5c.pet
libgphoto2-2.4.11-w5c.pet
libsigc++-2.2.10-w5c.pet
libusb-1.0.8-w5c.pet
mktemp-1.7-w5c.pet
psmisc-22.14-w5c.pet
schroedinger-1.0.10-w5c.pet
unzip-60-w5c.pet
xsane-0.997-patched-w5c.pet
xvidcore-1.2.2-w5c.pet


If you have a problem there are corresponding libs in the wary5 and/or common repos on ibiblio, look for ones of similar version without w5c, [w5 is ok].

Yes, including libusb-0.1 would help! I recall reading something about this in BK's blog.

[Edit] Since Slacko now has libusb-1.0, the better package to add is libusb-0.1-compat.

Oh it was there all right, just that "no-xcb" version from Barry's compile fest for wary/racy

-------

Uploading gutenprint-5.2.7

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko/gutenprint-5.2.7-i486-s.pet 3.1M
dev, doc, and nls are at http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko/

At the suggestion of an unnamed printing helper around here I am leaving gutenprint out of the main iso with a message to down load it from the Setup menu in PPM (not until B4 Wink )

That will save 3M, but it is already spent mostly by broadcom.
