That's confusing. I think you mean "Which Puppy uses this driver package"?

The huge_slacko_PAE-k4.1.11 kernel was an optional kernel built by 01micko for people who wanted to upgrade their Slacko kernel. No Puppy has it OOTB. If you want to use that driver PET, you must do a kernel change.

I am tired of having to change it everytime I install puppy, or is there a way to change kernel inside the iso?

I don't know what "it" means. Are you saying that you are familiar with the kernel-change procedure?

Quote:
I am using tahr-6.0.5_noPAE and only this kernel supports the driver [mt7601u_slacko630-k4.1.11-x86_64.pet] needed for the wifi dongle.

Again confusing. You have a 32bit noPAE Puppy but are referring to a 64bit driver PET.

I want to use a puppy where I don't have to change the kernel right after I install it coz without changing it, no driver works and the wifi don't work.

Yes I can change the kernel with change_kernels in the terminal but .. I would prefer a puppy that has the driver already. Or.. maybe there's a way to add this kernel to the tahrpup iso, I don't know about that.

I copy pasted the wrong driver there.. sorry about that. I am using tahr-6.0.5_noPAE and I use change_kernels-1.0.pet to change the kernel to this kernel-modules.sfs-4.1.11-slacko_PAE and then I add this driver to use the wifi mt7601u_slacko630-k4.1.11.pet. Am I doing everything wrong? Confused

No. You are using the correct procedure with this adapter and its driver.

At the moment, I don't believe that ANY Puppy supports this device OOTB.

You could change to the 4.9.13 xenial kernel that has the driver built-in. Then do a remaster of the ISO to contain the new kernel files.

I like the last part, not sure I know how to though, I tried to built a remastered cd long time back but I don't think I succeeded but I'll try again.

This one would work right huge-4.9.13-xenial_noPAE.tar.bz2 Shocked

The program ISOMaster in the Multimedia menu does this. If you have trouble, ask for help in the Users section.

You will need to test it yourself to be sure. It is a big jump in kernels from your Tahrpup 605.

Update: It didn't work. Sad

I used the same method to change it with change_kernels in the terminal but it shows "Error message: Not a valid kernel file" Confused

Is there a puppy that has that kernel built in?

Judging by it's date (March 7th) I'm guessing it's used in xenialpup-7.0.8-uefi.iso or xenialpup-7.0.8.1-uefi.iso here:

Thanks so much. Smile

Update: I risked downloading the latest which is 7.0.8.5 and it does has the driver because my wifi usb is recognized rightaway, so let's see if everything else works okay or I run into some problems (like always).

Thanks

PS: I didn't realize it was x64 but apparently my system can run x64 Shocked

So far so good, I installed everything I wanted, although the pychess isn't working, it says it needs python_cairo but ppm shows it's already installed, which is weird but rest all is okay.. for now. And it has Mpv, no vlc but it looks cool.

And I don't know if it is xenial pup or latest palemoon update, it now plays twitter videos. Very Happy

A problem I found, no matter what Icon theme one uses, the folder icons inside remain the same. Rolling Eyes
