I guess I've been a bit of help then...in spite of being some 15,000km and 8 hours apart... Wondrous, sort of.

Well, I tried that pup with no luck. I decompressed the pup and checked the script to see if it had worked as intended. I found that it was trying to move a folder to a subfolder of itself which throws an error. I have changed the script to fix that issue. Now that I have the files in the correct location I have another related issue to iron out. The iwlwifi module is not in the list of modules in the network configuration wizard. As such I cannot select the module and test if this fix works correctly. How should I proceed? I have attached the patched pup for you.

Thanks for fixing the moving part. I thought that it worked straight. Anyway. Try module loading in console.
First for sure unload possibly loaded module. In console:
rmmod iwlwif
modprobe iwlwifi

And then check in console:
dmesg
....to see what happened. If it is not loaded correctly post again the output:
dmesg > dmesg.gz

Reran rmmod and modprobe and according to dmesg iwlwifi cannot find the firmware file "iwlwifi-100-5.ucode" which is one of the files we moved in the previous step. Here on 3.1.10.3 there is an identical file structure for the iwlwifi and when I run dmesg i get no errors reported in association with iwlagn. Here is the dmesg from 3.4.2.9

Now I am starting to be clueless. If you have the same folder structure in /lib/modules/all-firmware/iwlwifi as in 3.1.10 dpup....everything should be allright. Have you remembered to try to reboot. it is possible that it is needed sometimes. Also you could copy the right firmware from 3.1.10.
Next thing is to place the firmwares straight to the /lib/firmware folder...or at least the asked iwlwifi-100-5.ucode.
Other than those procedures...I am starting to be clueless.

Yes, I have rebooted after moving the files, then after rmmod + mod probe. I did also already try moving the files contained in the firmware folder up to the lib folder one branch up and even in the iwlwifi the branch above that. Each time I did so I rebooted then tried the rmmod + modprobe. All with the same result. I guess I could have posted those steps but to be honest I didn't expect they would be brought up, I just did it 'cause I am a bit OCD and figured it wouldn't hurt to try, lol. I would point out once again the major difference between 3.1.10.3 and 3.4.2 is that there is a module named iwlagn in 3.1.10.3 which is not present in 3.4.2. 3.1.10.3 does have the iwlwifi folder structure(/lib/modules/all-firmware/iwlwifi/lib/firmware/), though, and I assume iwlagn uses it the way we are trying to get 3.4.2 to using iwlwifi. Or is there some step I may be missing. I checked the list of loadable modules for network in 3.1.10.3 through the puppy network wizard like I normally would and it does not list iwlwifi, but instead lists iwlagn which i what I use on that build. When I switch to 3.4.2 I have neither iwlagn nor iwlwifi listed as available. Is 3.4.2 supposed to have a separate module loaded that I am missing? I wish I knew more about these modules and what resources there are to verify the firmware files are in the correct, expected location.


BIG EDIT!
I have found and fixed the problem! I was looking around 3.1.10.3 for differences in filestructure and found ALOT of files in /lib/firmware that are NOT in 3.4.2. I copied the contents of /lib/modules/all-firmware/iwlwifi/lib/firmware to /lib/firmware, reran rmmod and modprobe presto I have network connectivity for the first time in 3.4.2! I have made changes to the pup to account for this change so people will be able to use the pup to fix the issue until you get the chance to remake this build.

Hi Pemasu,
on 5X3.4.2.9 (as also on 5X15): gxine: cannot get it to run ...
installed from dpup-exprimo-pets repo:
xine-lib-1.2.2.pet
gxine-0.5.907.pet
gxine_NLS-0.5.907.pet
installed from debian packages repo (missing <== ldd /usr/bin/gxine )
libmozjs2d_1.9.1.16-17_i386.deb
libnspr4-0d_4.8.6-1_i386.deb needed for libmozjs2d

and get this message when running from console:
Quote:
# gxine
Illegal instruction
#

I thought gxine was running quite OOTB on exprimo (on an earlier version of 5X3.4.2.x...?)

thanks for any help

Bonjour. Je ne suis rien sans ABIWORD
ABIWORD does not work. Even from your repository. It's a strong damage !
Why ? How an I do ? Merci.

Pas bien pas bien not good ! This distro is very attractive. I use it with eth0 cabled connect. It would be fine if wireless should be working. OK with Slacko, OK with Racy, why not with Dpup exprimo ?

ici avoir installé abiword-2.8.6-gnumeric-1.10.17-goffice-0.8.17-dpup.sfs
çà plante pas sous jwm - çà plante pas sous e17 ...so what's no good?
ps: if you need a more reliable textprocessor, you might try softmaker (dowload it here:

+ the locale for french

Sorry for not replying earlier. I was out of town. My old friend had public defence of a doctoral thesis yesterday. I had to travel far away. And the official party lasted long. I drived back during the late night. Now reading throuh posts.

I will check the apps which does not seem to work.

And I will create updated dpup...quite soon. First I need to finish this alpha build of dpup wheezy. I have stuff in the ram and I cant reboot before this is done. Sorry.

Time for a small update - I PM'ed pemasu about this already.

I'm currently building an extremely minimal , 64-bit Wheezy dpup (which even lacks X) - I'm going to utilize all the build scripts I have to build as many packages as I can. The list includes pretty much everything needed to achieve a bootable Puppy - there's only one way to prove this Laughing

The result should be some extremely barebones, console-only Puppy. Sounds fun, doens't it? Wink

Having someone like Iguleder interested in Wheezy build really makes my day. It feels as good as refreshing night sleep, good breakfast and sunny, windless day watching the still lake. Really great news.
Thank you Iguleder of doing your work with wheezy. It benefits us all.

Started the compilation procedure already - the time difference between my previous reply and this one is amazing, got things to work pretty quickly Laughing

I'm going to start with the packages from my distro (heaps of cool console applications) and continue with Puppy's core packages (e.g mingetty and gtkdialog).

The first package (advancecomp) is already compiling Cool

EDIT: looks great! Got the following packages:advancecomp, aspell, aspell6-en, bash, busybox, dash, gpm, mktemp, optipng, syslinux and bitlbee. For some unknown reason, they're considerably smaller than those I built using a very similar distro built from Slackware 14.0 packages (which has the same GCC version).

EDIT 2: more packages: aria2, dropbear, irssi, lftp, links, re-alpine, unnethack, terminus-font, vim, libsigc++ and libtorrent. rtorrent will follow Wink

EDIT 3: this is totally insane, so many packages! I'm uploading everything here. Don't forget - these are x86_64 dpup (oh yeah!) packages, so they won't work on any existing Puppy. I'll try to build a Puppy from these once I find the time.

EDIT 4: built 126 PET packages in about 6 hours. Totally automated. Two packages failed to build: snownews (because of some zlib incompatibility, still investigating) and movgrab (because Debian no longer supports SSLv2 in OpenSSL).

Dpup Exprimo 5.X.3.4.10 has been uploaded. It is almost entirely bug fix release. I have fixed the mistakenly wrongly created firmware folders. Couple of apps have been updated. No new applications.

I used latest woof version, so some puppy system fixes have been implemented with this update.

So...this update is for those wireless users who need appropriate firmware to be loaded also. And have been unlucky with previous dpup exprimo.
