Yeah... whenever you fix something, all these people start popping up saying "we've also had that problem for ages", but they never bothered reporting/investigating it...

Well done guys.

If so, I'm stunned that people would download a driver for such a specific purpose, then not bother to report something as obvious as a missing wifi utility such as this! We get some strange behaviour on this forum.


I only want to say THANKS to tempestuous for the job with the wireless drivers. Yo have compiled a lot of them and i couldn't make that job because i have a low knowledge in linux.

The errors you got were from undeclared functions, which most likely meant you were missing the header files for libnl (they include a list of functions contained in the library, so the application knows what's there to use).
This was probably the result of not having libnl...


A lot of thanks for your explanation. I like to learn to compile programs and to know why there is an error. Very Happy

Here is an updated version of the snd-hda-intel ALSA audio driver.
I specifically patched it to support the ALC663 variant of Intel HDA-based audio devices, using a patch from here
http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=121602662531525&w=2
but as you can see from that link, many more updates are included.
Also, I added this latest patch on top of earlier patches for the ALC269 device in recent ASUS Eee models, so this audio driver is now relatively up to date, albeit heavily patched.

If you have an HDA-based audio device which still does not work with this driver, I suggest that you should use a Puppy derivative with newer kernel and newer ALSA audio drivers, such as wow's "Unnamed pupplet (puppy411 kernel-2.6.27.5 Xorg-7.4 LXDE)"

or kirk's "Fatdog 112"

I'm not sure this is the proper place to post this but I was redirected here from another post so here goes...

I have an eBox 3300 but the NIC isn't being detected. I've downloaded the driver from the manufacturer's site but am not sure how to compile it. I'm using Puppy 4.0 but I think this is also an issue with newer versions as well.

Would anyone be able to help me out?

I've attached the source for the r6040 ethernet drivers.

Kind regards.

Puppy 4.0 has an older kernel, and does not contain the "r6040" ethernet driver.

Well, no. Puppy 4.1/4.2 includes the r6040 driver.
I suggest you use Puppy 4.1.2.

I attached the source code for the drivers in my previous message and was hoping someone might be able to compile them for me.

I would upgrade but that isn't an option right now. I've customized 4.0 quite a lot and am unable to upgrade to the newer version for a while.

I'm really hoping there is a way to get it working in Puppy 4.0. Thx.

Then your request should go in the forum thread which deals with that earlier kernel;
"Extras for Puppy 3.x and 4.0"
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=294970#294970
r6040 driver now attached there.

Here is the "w35und" driver for the Winbond W89C35D wifi device, which is apparently found in certain Koshinja laptops.
The source code is from
http://code.google.com/p/winbondport/

After installing this dotpet, reboot.
Puppy should automatically load the w35und driver, but if not, you can load it from the Network Wizard.

Thank you so much Tempestuous, module loaded, seems to be working, but I cannot connect to internet via wireless. LAN ethernet works fine, as usual... what should I do to make it work? I'm so excited since I've been trying ti load the module since 6 months ago!
I will appreciate any suggestion.
Best.

EDIT: I compiled the "nw8xx" webcam driver for webcams based on the DivIO NW800/NW801/NW802 chipsets,
such as the Trust/Logitech Spacecam 120 webcam.
But the source code is quite old, and apparently the driver won't work. Now removed.

Broadcom wifi devices.
Puppy 4.1.x contains the new b43 and b43legacy opensource wifi drivers, plus the older bcm43xx driver.
But some Broadcom wifi devices, especially those found in Dell and HP notebooks, are notorious for failing to work with these drivers.
For these troublesome devices the proprietary Broadcom hybrid driver will likely work better. Now attached.
This dotpet package contains a suitably modified PREFLIST so that the new driver will be used in preference to the other versions.
Also the networkmodules and wag-profiles.sh config files have been modified to accommodate the new driver.
After installing this dotpet, reboot. Puppy should automatically load the new driver, which is called "wl". Check with lsmod. If necessary you can load the wl module from the Network Wizard.

Feb 11 2009:
Driver updated to version 5.10.27.14

The source code is from here
http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php

thank you very much for this. i had been trying in vain for hours to get my BCM43xG card to work. this did the trick. thanks again.

Here is the zd1211rw wifi driver for Zydas chipsets, patched to support the TP-Link WN322/422G.
The patch is from
http://marc.info/?l=linux-wireless&m=123379090904294&w=2

After installing this dotpet, reboot.

UPDATE May 26 2009:
The driver was originally located in the wrong directory. Now fixed and re-attached.
