Instead of messing with a firmware SFS, you would be better off going to gyro's up-to-date repo here and getting the exact files you need.


I wasn't aware of his site. I did download the firmware from the intel site and it worked too.

Install "pgktools" with PPM


Which repository is it located in?

Perhaps this isn't available for the newest 64bit version of slaco.

**Edit I found it. Weird thing was searching for "pkgtools" didn't find it but searching for "package" did. I'm not sure why.

I also have the radio button set on "puppy-slacko6414.1" Not sure if that matters. How do I do a search across all repositories?

PostPosted: Fri 23 Sep 2016, 23:56    Post subject: wifi adaptor druver module not loading  

I have tried Slacko (64/32) versions from 5.7 to present versions.

Same result with all.
All fresh frugal installs.
Initial bootup.

Wifi device is a Intel wireless 7260
Needs the iwlwifi driver

At bootup the wireless device is detected, but no driver is loaded, so it does not show up in the Network Wizard.
In Network Wizard.
If I try to load the iwlwifi driver module, it says it loads, but still no wireless device found.

In Tahrpup 64 6.0.5 and Xenialpup 64 7.0.7 wireless device is detected and available with no problems.
iwlwifi driver module loads as normal bootup process.

Info from a Xenialpup 64 7.0.7
Quote:
Network controller
• Intel Corporation Wireless 7260
• VendorID=8086 DeviceID=08b1 Rev=c3
• Kernel Driver=iwlwifi
• Kernel Module=iwlwifi


Update:
Slacko is missing the firmware for this wireless controller.

I copied the firmware from Xenialpup 64 7.0.7 and it now works.

Copied firmware for iwlwifi-7260-7.ucode thru iwlwifi-7260-16.ucode and placed them in /lib/firmware.
On bootup firmware is loaded and Network Wizard shows the wireless controller for wlan0.

Posting from Slacko 64 6-3.0.6-uefi with updated firmware.

The programming language Python has a module installer called pip

When I boot Slacko 6.3 32bit from an iso I can install devx, then pip and then a python module perfectly.

But when using a Full install of Slacko,
I install devx and reboot then
python complains when trying to do anything,

I always download a python script called get-pip.py to install pip

# python get-pip.py

Also when installing python3 from the package manager it stops here:

++ file --brief 3
+ ISANEXEC=

++ grep --extended-regexp 'LSB executable|shared object'
++ file --brief -
