Sub_title: how I got Frisbee (sort of) working on Archpup1212
 

Updated see new post http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=676071#676071
---

I have been working towards getting Frisbee working on Archpup

1. Hardware

Im using the Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g]

No frisbee/network-wizard to find and load the correct module - found it is b43
Added
Code:
modprobe b43
to /root/.startup

however, b43 firmware isn't included in Archpup or archpup-firmware.sfs
So copied /lib/firmware/b43 from Slacko

the following code now shows work wlan0 connection-
Code:

ifconfig wlan0 up
ifconfig


---

2. Software-
Archpup doesn't use PETs by default, so I converted Frisbee-beta2.4-spup.pet to SFS

Only trouble with going from PET -> SFS is that un/install scripts pinstall.sh and puninstall.sh aren't run (as far as i know).

Ran pinstall.sh and then loaded Frisbee-beta2.4-spup.sfs

Archpup doesn't seem to run things in the /root/Startup directory at startup. Add
Code:
exec /root/Startup/frisbee-tray
to /root/.startup


i've uploaded Frisbee-beta2.4-spup.sfs and its pinstall.sh here-
http://www.meownplanet.net/puppylinuxstuff/darkcity/packages/Frisbee_beta-2.4-spup_5.3.1.sfs
http://www.meownplanet.net/puppylinuxstuff/darkcity/packages/Frisbee_beta-2.4-pinstall.sh
---

3. Bodging-

Not all the functions seem to work correctly in Frisbee. Clicking 'Create Profile...' doesn't do anything. Manually edited /usr/local/Frisbee/wpa_supplicant.conf for network key. Copy from working Frisbee installation if your unsure.

Code:
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ap_scan=2
update_config=1

network={
   ssid="12345678"
   scan_ssid=1
   psk="YOURPASSWD"
   proto=WPA
   key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
   pairwise=TKIP
   group=TKIP WEP104 WEP40
}


Now when I boot up I can connect by clicking on
frisbee-tray > Setup Networking > wireless network reset
and waiting a few seconds ; -)

I've now switched to using Mavrothal's Frisbee package Frisbee_archpup-2.tar.gz, follow the instructions here
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=674399#674399

additionally-
A) I still need to copy /lib/firmware/b43 from Slacko (this will probably be included in the archpup firmware sfs), and add modprobe b43 to /root/.start

B) have xdialog installed (will probably be included in the next archpup)

C) create a file called /usr/local/Frisbee/interface with text wlan0 (with carriage return).

Point C) is required otherwise the first tab is greyed out-
