DC. Kernel 3.4.2 has initial support for your stick....in /lib/modules/3.4.2-dpup/kernel/drivers/media/dvb/dvb-usb/dvb-usb-rtl28xxu.ko

Have you plugged in your stick and tested. And check the dmesg in console after that. Or try modprobe dvb-usb-rtl28xxu and test again.

I couldnt find recent patch for your stick.

/usr/src/linux/drivers/media/dvb/dvb-usb/rtl28xxu.c mentions rtl2832u several times.
If that support does not work for you, I could try to hunt recent ready patch for 3.4.2 kernel.

About kernel headers. They are included in devx sfs in Puppies. In dpups also. When you compile kernel modules...I would recommend to use devx sfs of the build. The other devx sfs usually works for applications. I mean same puplet but older kernel version usually works. Debian packages their kernel totally differently than Puppies. So...the ready kernel patching kits from debian ubuntu or squeeze does not work.

Charlie6. Yeah...it seems to need that libcurl-gnutls.so.4. libcurl3-gnutls deb from PPM debian squeeze repo installs that lib. I must have had that lib due to my compiling already.

Hi pemasu,
RTL2832U Not working. Here's the results

As a benchmark, puppy 528 which uses the module I compiled

#Twinhan
dvb-usb: found a 'TwinhanDTV USB-Ter USB1.1 / Magic Box I / HAMA USB1.1 DVB-T device' in warm state.
dvb-usb: will use the device's hardware PID filter (table count: 16).
dvb-usb: schedule remote query interval to 150 msecs.
dvb-usb: TwinhanDTV USB-Ter USB1.1 / Magic Box I / HAMA USB1.1 DVB-T device successfully initialized and connected.
#Sandberg
dvb-usb: found a 'RTL2832U DVB-T USB DEVICE' in warm state.
dvb-usb: will pass the complete MPEG2 transport stream to the software demuxer.
dvb-usb: RTL2832U DVB-T USB DEVICE successfully initialized and connected.
usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb_usb_rtl2832u

#squeeze-5_X_3_4_2_1-SCSI results

# modprobe dvb-usb-rtl28xxu

# dmesg | grep dvb
[ 496.418342] usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb_usb_rtl28xxu

#Sandberg
unplug and replug RTL2832U - no reaction at all


# Twinhan

[ 666.220826] dvb-usb: found a 'TwinhanDTV USB-Ter USB1.1 / Magic Box I / HAMA USB1.1 DVB-T device' in warm state.
[ 666.239425] dvb-usb: will use the device's hardware PID filter (table count: 16).

[ 666.302608] dvb-usb: TwinhanDTV USB-Ter USB1.1 / Magic Box I / HAMA USB1.1 DVB-T device successfully initialized and connected.

Whats the criteria for finding kernel headers /patches. As I want to get this usb-dvb working under Fatdog as well.

One other point relating to sqeeze trying to resize windows you have to be very accurate with your mouse pointer. Is there a setting to make the grab area wider/thicker?

thanks

DC

DC. I am checking the rtl2832u patches.
About JWM window thichkness. Yeah...I have reduced it to too narrow. In /root/.jwm/themes....check the jwmrc files of the themes. In there is the tag: <Width>3</Width>
Change it for example to whatever number you want. From 1 or 3 to 5 or 8. From 8 the resizing by dragging is easy, lol.

Hello Pemasu / Billtoo / Anyone else,

I would be curious to know if this video stream plays in your new VLC 2.0.1

http://173.193.48.140:8080;stream.nsv

It is just the one from the button "Shoutcast Movie" in Pupradio/Puptelly but it is in fact "Old Fashioned TV".

I have found that in some VLC versions in Puppy I get video but no audio and I was wondering if this is something in the way it was compiled or if it is something which needs to be altered in the (rather large) preferences like a demuxer setting perhaps?

@ OscarTalks:

edit:
My apologies.
I forgot I was using vlc 2.0.1 on fatdog600 when I posted this reply but it may help to know it works on 2.0.1.

I have it playing on vlc 2.0.1as I post this. Just copied address from the clipboard.
irishrm.

edit 2:
As Billtoo confirms no sound (didn't check)

It plays but no sound in vlc-2.0.1 dpup and fatdog, it plays with sound
in ubuntu 12.04 running in virtualbox in slacko 533.

EDIT: umplayer plays that link with sound in fatdog, I haven't tried the dpup version of umplayer.

Another frugal install on my Xubuntu/Zenwalk/AntiX/Puppy box. Actually used the installer this time.
No problems so far, everything appears to be working correctly.

DC. I have test compiled rtl2830.ko using this link to download latest v4l git and compiling the modules.

http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/How_to_Obtain,_Build_and_Install_V4L-DVB_Device_Drivers

I included the core recompiled v4l modules also, not sure if they are needed, maybe just the rtl2830.ko would have needed, or...it wont work at all.

Install the pet, it has depmod in pinstall.sh script included.

Now you have possiblity to stress your machine to the end...or notice that your comp is in good shape.

StressItOut-0.1.... My comp is still alive.

http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/StressItOut?content=136985

This app needs the qt libs with opengl support:

Hi pemasu,
The bad news and the further bad news
rtl2832u still ignored.

And the twinhan is now broken with the following

Sorry about bad news. It was my first trial with that v4l git. I suppose it would need the whole set of those modules.

Anyway...Uninstall the pet...remove this folder with subfolders: /lib/modules/3.4.2-dpup/kernel/drivers/media

And then you can copy folder back from: /initrd/pup_ro2/lib/modules/3.4.2-dpup/kernel/drivers/media. As you know, with frugal install you have always backup in hands.

I think I let this be now. It might be possible to test with whole v4l but I will test it first with my own dvb tuner....maybe later...

I posted in a dpup thread a while back how /root/.bashrc was ignored when LXTerminal was installed.
I know Pemasu solved it a different way, but I wanted to add this here for future reference.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=12814

So basically, all I did in Slacko to get .bashrc to run automatically, was to uncomment the line in /etc/profile that says #export ENV="/root/.bashrc". It worked after my computer rebooted, and this method will very likely apply to other puppies as well.

The line below it says:
#...no, instead have exported SHELL=bash, see above.

That has me a little worried, as I didn't change the shell to SHELL="/bin/sh", but everything seems to be working normally so far.

@Pemasu. I am using Slacko now, but I plan to switch over to Upup Precise, once it's finished. ( Newer Gcc and libs ).

A question.

If I update to libc62.15,
will it break any applications?

I'm trying to install the newest version of Aseprite.
