ok tempestuous now we have to make it so that some thing like this free app can be used on the wifi
http://ardrone.parrot.com/parrot-ar-drone/usa/ar.free-flight-for-android
here is the plane that it flys

for now just something that responds via wifi from puppy is the goal not necessarily a flying thing, some thing simple like an off /on switch on an appliance would be an achievement.

i think this wifi interaction capability is kernel dependent. which kernels i don't know.
i think just need something like this

and this http://shop.singahobby.com/?q=node/27530 to start playing. (plus a lot of knowledge which can be acquired for free.)

That's interesting, but it bears no relevance to wifi hotspots.

Well "interaction" can mean many things. In terms of communication method, that's easy; it's ad-hoc wifi, as explained here -
http://ardrone.parrot.com/parrot-ar-drone/uk/support/questions-answers
And ad-hoc wifi is quite easy in Linux, howto here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=159929#159929

But in terms of porting the AR.FreeFlight application to Linux, wow, that would take some effort, especially in terms of reading all the motion and camera data, then displaying it on the Linux X server.

What about just keeping a focus on how people can communicate in case the internet is shit down by our great leaders?

This is a aspect no one really discuss here.

So I am back to my Joomla stuff again. If internet is shut down. Can one somehow use such a technology as discussed here to build local Wifi net in cities etc?

Any views on this?

The thing is... If this Hostap was integrated so that a maximum number of cards and technologies was covered(maybe a multiboot CD with the 3 linux Wifi drivers represented) and it was set up as a system where you SPREAD the technology, so that people can log on to your APs server and download Puppy with the HostAP, so that they can "extend" the range of the network? In such a Puppy the Joomla(or any other technology) could have a lot of "howto's) on WifFi antennas and tricks to extend the range of your Wifi etc.

Call it "WarPup" or whatever:-)

went to play with some prospective android phones today and discovered that touch phones are only for the fingernail challenged. Crying or Very sad i don't know if i can do without that fashion statement. it will be a traumatic decision.

How about making a "proof of concept" Live CD, whereas the objective is to be able to boot from a live CD and your Wlan turns into a AP and the content is RapNews???

Anyone in for that? I can try to make the Puppy wished for by the one that can do the teckie stuff related to Wlan decides, and have a LHMP enabled Puppy XXX tanked up with LHMP and the RapNews content. They are scheduled to release a new broadcast this week about Kony 2012 and they have a large group of fans that would love such a item to broadcast locally at their school or neighborhood.

Just as a proof of concept if one could make "instant broadcast Puppy"

I didn't find a follow-up post in searching the site -- were the changes between 5.2 and 5.3 enough that I shouldn't expect the instructions and attached dotpet files to work any longer?
