Ok I'm trying to do that right now, but I can't past the command into the console.

Is the copy/paste not supported on the console ??


To copy and paste out of the urxvt terminal you'll have to use a three button mouse.

- Mark the text in the urxvt to copy
- open f.e. the 'Leafpad' text editor
- click the middle button/scroll wheel to paste into the text editor window

rem: It works both ways - from/and to the urxvt terminal.

Right and left mouse button pressed at same time, does the same as pressing the middle mouse button.

OK, that means that the firmware has probably copied into place correctly.
To be sure, use ROX to browse to /lib/firmware/rtlwifi and check that this firmware file -
rtl8192cufw.bin
is definitely there.
If so, that's a good thing, but the driver is still failing, and your best option is still to use Lucid 5.2.8 with the vendor-supplied driver that I provided.


Yes I can see rtlwifi there - inside there is 1 file named rtl8192cufw.bin.

I have tried with Lucid 5.2.8 but still no luck.

Never mind I will forget by now this problem of the wireless dongle.
I can access internet with a ethernet cable.

What I'm trying to do now is to install the most possible of software that I use in windows to see if one day I can completely replace windows with a linux distro on my main desktop machine.

Also, in the newer Puppy systems (certainly true in 5.28) you can copy the text from your browser, then use the "edit" menu bar tool on the command window (which has a "paste" function)

Just to be clear - Lucid 5.2.8 does not contain a compatible driver for your wifi device - you need to install the Realtek third-party driver I provided.

I've settled on 5.28 for the time being. It seemed to have lower hardware load than 4.31, and much better hardware support... Damn solid product!

(someone once said that if I started running Puppy that I'd never get back to playing with Debian... Wink )

"ROCKS" is an is an extreme understatement.
We are really fortunate to have someone like him to help with
wireless problems that haven't even been solved by the largest
linux distros.

Ah, that's good to hear, though you will come unstuck if you try to add a very new accessory device, such as a Realtek wifi dongle, for example.
The Puppy 2.00/2.02regression kernel is too old for modern drivers to compile against.

For speed and lightness, though, the Puppy 1.03 - 1.09 series was even better. Worked a treat with my (now dead) Sony VAIO Pentium 1 laptop.
Again, no support in that old Pup for modern hardware.

ok I dare not mention the simplepup I have based on 1.08 ... get even faster performance but my usb modem and wifi were not an option.

I did cheat and change the kernel in 2.02 to 2.6.18 as the original had a unionfs quirk which meant deleted files reappearing but performance remained. I put it down to the Xorg / X 6.8 and early gtk 2 and of course plenty of gtk1 apps. The included mplayer finished the show and a neat firefox 1.5. I did build the realtek rt3070sta driver on that kernel but normally the older pups are around for nostalga, testing ideas and the occasional rollar coaster ride on a speedy base (and small too 60MBsfs)

cheers

Mike
