Could it be possible to include also atheros NIC driver to the next Fluppy . Acer uses it in timelinex series laptops.

Package included which I found from the net following ubuntu discussion threads. Original place I dont remember.

Atheros Wlan card is handled, but NIC card isnt. Normally I use wlan, but sometimes Ethernet connection is needed

Needed driver module seems to be atl1e.

EDIT: I forgot to say that existing atl1e does not recognize ethernet card.

That should work fine on anything newer than 2.6.31, I believe.

Thanks, However I can't test it as I don't have it. I am curently deciding on which netbook to get.

I did a frugal install of Fluppy 003 on one of my desktops (2.0 ghz Athlon XP/1 gb ddr ram/1.25gb swap) a couple of days ago and everything worked fine out of the box.

Just wanted to tell you, "Great job". Smile

Get an EeePC. Puppeee can boot in 10 or 15 seconds if properly configured, plus out of the box support for over/under clocking, fan control. Suspend/hibernate definitely works, and is totally stable. No driver issues. Puppeee also recognizes and optimizes performance on SSDs.

Basically, you run the Zdrive cutter, then do a full install and switch to Xvesa, and a couple other tweaks.

Note, you probably shouldn't do a full install on an SSD unless you consider the drive disposable.

Probably two or three weeks. I want to release Puppeee, then build Fluppy 004 from Puppeee 1.0.

I may be convinced to post that driver sooner though. Smile

PostPosted: Wed 14 Jul 2010, 13:53    Post subject: Fluppy-003 patch suggestions  

Jemimah,

I have been running luci-210 (USB-stick installation) on an old HP laptop without hard disk and battery. The other day I bought a Compaq C0101-101S0 mini-pc as a possible replacement. Alas, luci-210 wouldn't boot on the Compaq. Fortunately, thanks to your excellent work, fluppy-003 turned out to work flawlessly.

I have added a few patches which may be of interest to you.

1. The quirky version of PartView. It replaced the version fluppy is using. It shows mounted drives as default with "All Drives" as an option which can be slow on low-end hardware.

2. Network_tray-2.1. A small modification of the query version.
Code:
 network_tray.c
void tray_icon_on_click(GtkStatusIcon *status_icon, gpointer user_data)
{
    system("pip");
}
Clicking on the Network_tray icon shows the IP-address or "No IP-address found". The icon didn't show up after I installed the pet. But by clicking on the empty space between the fremem-applet and the loadspeaker in the tray, you can test the function.

3. Pdict. A minor improvement.

4. SwissWatch. For users liking analog clocks.

Keep up the good work
Very Happy
ecube
Edit: 1. The icons added to network_tray pet. 2 pdict window adjusted

Another Fluppy surprise:

In order for us "full install" users to remaster it was necessary to
use "Dougals remaster script" on 4.xx and earlier Puppies.

This doesn't work with the new versions.

I tried it using Fluppys' Remaster Puppy and it worked perfectly!
I have a 168mb clone of my modified Fluppy on bootable cd......
the ultimate backup.

Edit; more surprises.

The remaster cd has this laptop intel wireless configured;
when I booted into a different laptop and pc the different
wireless cards configured automatically. Ready to browse.
