afgs, Those are sweet! Thanks!

I think I found the problem that makes the modem mode switching not work. I will update the kernel and hopefully release a new version by next week.

Hi

I tried 3 modems in BoxPuppeee with different carriers, a Huawei E169 on VirginBroadband (which I've had over a year), a Huawei E160 on Dodo and a Huawei E160X on VirginBroadband all connected with no fuss Smile , I'm just wondering if the Option driver is working correctly with neurino's E1550 or there is something different in Puppeee to BoxPuppeee.

Cheers

The kernel for Boxpupeee is the same, but apparently some modems need a little more voodoo than others to make them work. I discovered that /proc/bus/usb is not mounted on Puppeee by default; that may cause the mode switcher to be confused. This is all new to me since my Sierra modem just works with no mode switching mumbo jumbo.

Hey afgs, can you make those wallpapers a bit larger? They look a little grainy when stretched on an external monitor.

Thanks again for making the logo!

Happy new year!

I'm posting using puppeee and my Huawey e1550 so I managed to meke it work even if I had to make some attempts before success. (see topic)

I noticed, looking running processes both in standard Puppy 431 and pupeeee (using Pprocess) that puppeee runs
Code:
wvdial isp1
(presumably ignoring APN thats stored in wvdial.conf under isp1apn)
while Standard Puppy calls
Code:
wvdial isp1 isp1apn wireless

Why this difference I don't know but maybe that's why I had to make 2/3 tryouts before getting connected?

Weird, I'd recommend downloading gnome-ppp from the repository. That's what I use.

Another tip: gnome-ppp lets you specify alternate dns servers. I sometimes get a lot better performance on my sprint modem using google servers 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. I think those are for the US only though, you might see about open dns servers for your location.

We found a problem with the microphone not working on some Eeepc models on the 2.6.31.5 kernel. I've upgraded alsa to 1.0.22 and that fixes it. So if your mic doesn't work, it should in beta 3.2. Also I'll include the new Retrovol mixer from Pizzasgood, which is about a 100 times better than zmixer.

Can't wait for beta 3_2 for my internal SSD to replace beta 2_5 and have my dongle working on the fly! Cool
