songzi, you need the ath5k driver to make your wireless work. This module is included in jejy69's Slacko LXDE puplet.

Here's how to make it work for you...

From the applications Menu, select Setup --> Internet Connection Wizard. Under the "Connect to Internet by" section (lower left portion), click the icon next to "Wired or wireless LAN". Select the bottom most icon for the Network Wizard.

Towards the bottom of the resulting box you should see a button, "Load module". Click it. Then scroll through the long, long list and click once on the "ath5k" driver entry to highlight it. Click the "Load" button at the top right. It should pop up a couple of click-through boxes and eventually --having clicked OK on both-- you SHOULD get back to the main network wizard screen and see both wired and wireless interfaces. If you want to continue with the Network Wizard, then select the button below the list corresponding to your new wireless connection (it could be eth1 or wlan0 or a couple other names) and the rest is pretty simple.

Or you could use Simple Network Setup, which is exactly that. To get there, click "Exit" and "try a different tool", and then the "wired or wireless LAN" button again. The topmost option, "Simple Network Setup (SNS)" is what you want there.

You could also use Frisbee, but it has a bad habit of not removing itself cleanly, so think twice about this -- if you run it, you won't be able to run anything else without booting pfix=ram and starting over (or reboot w/o save if you're running from CD).

Good luck!

...and let us know whether or not this works for you. IIRC there's a variant of the ath5k that may or may not be needed here. You'd have to PM tempestuous for help if that's the case; he's our resident driver guru and he is awesome with that stuff.

Many thanks, Volhout and starhawk.

I followed starhawk's advice trying to load module, but the module list was blank. I guessed my problem was due to corruption of system files on the SD card. I therefore downloaded the ISO again and did a re-installation. This has resolved the no interface issue.

However, SNS failed in setting up the wifi connection. It reported some DCHP errors. I turned to Frisbee and it worked well for me this time.

Thanks again and have a nice weekend.

PostPosted: Sun 07 Oct 2012, 22:45    Post subject: Initial Report of LxPup-Precise  

Hi Jejy69,

I read your someone cryptic post, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=656778#656778 and, wondering if it had anything to do with Lxpup, decided to explore that puppy.

My specs:
Processor: 4x AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 945 Processor
Memory: 3375MB
ATI Radeon 3100 Graphics supporting 1600x900 pixels
RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI
SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: VT1708B Analog
SB {HDA ATI SB], device 1: VT1708B Digital

I downloaded and frugally installed the Precise version. Booted fine to supported video resolution using Ati Radeon driver. Ran into a problem similar to songzi: SNS reported connection, but didn't. Network wizard would not connect at all. Installed Frisbee and that worked. For those interested both opera and firefox could be run from folders on mnt/home. Sound also worked OOTB.

I'll test some more tomorrow. Particularly interested in trying out alternate desktops. Like what I've seen so far and really appreciate a dev with new voice and different vision on the forum. Keep up the good work.

But if it's not to much trouble, I'd recommend that you set up a separate thread for Lxpup Precise. I think problems, if any, one version has may not show up in the other, and vice-versa. Having only one thread for two operating systems (versions) is likely to generate confusion and delay solutions. If you do setup another thread, this one could continue just for Lxpup slackware as most of its posts seem to have regarded that version.

Jejy69,

I have not been able to find out what your goal is.
At first I was looking at Lxpup as a LXDE shell onto Slacko. And that was more or less usable. Actually it looked promising enough to drop Lubuntu. My impression was that you would "perfect" this build.

Then "Precise" was added, a build that is not even into "release" state.

And now I am looking at LXDE, XFCE, MATE on both Precise and Slacko.

You are loosing me now...... What is the final goal ?

I am beginning to fear that you are creating yourself a lot of work for a single developper by the diversity ... or ... you will disappoint everybody testing Lxpup by being unable to fix all the problems they report. It is a huge task, even for a single (LXDE) desktop on a single (Slacko) OS.

I would say "focus dude" (From the movie "Nemo").

Hello,

mikeslr,

I first answer about the cryptic message. I try to run Cinnamon under Slacko 5.3.6, but for the moment a package is impossible, there are many sensitive libs. Thanks you to try lxpup. The Precise version is not great since it is based on beta 3 ( or 4, I don't remember ).
Actually, I haven't create desktop alternative for the Precise version, because I prefer to wait the definitive version, to start a credible work. I made this version meanwhile since some people like Eyes-Only could not run Slacko. I will do as you have advised me, I'll make a separate topic when the next version comes out.
For SNS, I need more information about this concern, typing SNS in the console. Confused

Thanks you !!
Although many do not like, do not hesitate to give ideas.

Volhout,

I want to give a distribution with Lxde desktop.
Lxde was always my first goal. For WM, I assume you speak about "Valient ship", "GeNOME". These ISO, these are experiences, as you can see, I focused only on Lxpup now, and I offer some WM as bonus. Precise is for users who can't use Slacko that's all. Do not blame me for wanting to satisfy everyone. Confused Personally, I prefer Slacko.

I try, that's why I accept ideas.

In my defense, 90% of the problems that have been posted have been corrected. For SNS, the problem is that I have no problem with it ... Yet I tried 7 different pc. How do I set a non-existent concerns? Give me infos.

Thanks, for Pixar anecdote ! Very Happy Honnestly, You're right, I do too much, and I disperse.

I try to improve...

Cheers,

Don't stop the goodies coming mate.

Often it gives ideas to others for other Puppy releases.

Cheers...Chris.

Hello Chrisbear, thanks you,
If it gives more ideas, it's great.

I would say let your fantasies materialize if you have the inclination to do so. You are pleasing the silent majority here. Awaiting to try Cinnamon ... soon even if its not fully functional. Smile

Cheers.

I have not tried LXPup yet, but I thought I would comment on this SNS thing. I have tried many, many pups and many machines and cannot remember ever having been able to connect successfully with SNS. It just doesn't work for me.
I also seem to have dhcpcd problems with some pups that other people find 100% successful. I think the problems are sometimes caused by the particular brand/model of the router/ADSL modem. That is the only answer I can come up with - because it is the only common item in my SNS troubles.

If I use the standard (dougal) connect wizard my router will connect reliably (as long as the dhcpcd code is good - but not all puppies have the good version of that code)

Subject description: Wine doesn't seem to work with PCManFM.
 

Hi Jejy69,

I've tried LXPup and I'm still using it. But the problem is that Wine doesn't seem to work with PCManFM. Everything in this distro suites me except this problem.

Could you solve this problem for me?

Thanks

Okay, Wine works but is not set as the default action in Pcmanfm.

To install/use a windows program, simply click on it, go to 'Custom command line' type 'wine', and 'ok'.
The file will be launched with wine. Smile

Hum, sorry for so many posts, I have forget to notice WmChooser is available for Lxpup precise 11.12.
The package is attached in the first post.
You will be able to install KDE 4.5.8/4.9.1 and Mate 1.2/1.4.

I think I have nothing to forget... Cool
