Dpup Exprimo Updater which checks available updates from the repo. I have created the right click all pet which has those fixes don570 mentioned including missing libs and symlinks.

I have located most of duplicates. Next I have to add those locations as remove commands to the pinstall.sh script. I will upload the fixed right click UPDATE pet later in the evening.
But here is the first version of the updater. It makes menu entry.

Oh how can this be? Downloaded x3 and cant get an internet connection again! Not with SNS, Network Wizard or Frizbee. Broadcom wifi... no big surprise!

Dave S. Interesting. Kernel is the same, firmwares and kernel drivers are build in the main sfs. B43 and b43legacy firmwares and drivers are in the build. I dont know straight what is wrong. Dmesg after boot or other boot error log from sysinfobox could give information is there boot time loading problem of firmware or b43/b43legacy driver (I dont know which one your broadcom uses).

Sounds like problem which would be useful to try to debug more.

DaveS if you have wl.ko which iirc you don't can check boot loader to assure b43 b43legacy and ssb are not loaded. inversely, with the other check likewise.

I have wl and no problem.

----------
you probable know this
code
lsmod | grep ssb/b43/wl etc to find what is loaded

-----
this is recommended for puppy 3 I was going to try it next time I'm stuck.


Here is my script for Puppy 3.00 Retro with a Netgear Wireless USB adapter:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
modprobe r8187
sleep 5s
ifconfig wlan0 up
sleep 10s
iwconfig wlan0 essid PWB
iwconfig wlan0 key off
iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
rm /etc/dhcpc/*.pid
dhcpcd -t 30 -h puppypc -d wlan0
ifconfig
iwconfig

I can get it to work by loading the b43 picma via the network wizard but it does not survive re boot.

the connection wizard in slacko beta wouldn't remember my setting until reinputing it couple time on subsequent reboots. left a note for 01micko and playdayz when did that same in 262 development.

Something weird with this build then. Could you test by removing /etc/init.d/BC-wl script. And reboot. It could be that the script unintentionally unloads the b43 module. I think I forget to include that script in some builds. Now that script is there and it is possible it unloads your b43 module. That script is needed for wl.ko module using broadcoms and they expicitly needs usually that b43 and ssl modules are unloaded. That script handles the automatic unloading of b43 and ssl for those broadcom chips. Possibly the script detects your chip as one of them.

First UPDATE for 5.X.3. The Updater in menu recognizes the updates of the right distro version based on the name of the pet.
You can test my right click updater, which should now install don570 missing stuff and remove double entries with slightly different name. The updater downloads the pet to the location of your choice. Installing of the pet is manual.

UPDATE-5.X.3-right-clicks-0.0.1.pet

And the Updater pet here again for installing.

Stu90 was the great mind behind this great dpup-update script. I just added icon, menu entry and edited the script to contact pet_packages-exprimo repo.

I have got feedback that my post about not building PAE kernel puplets has sounded like personal attack. I apologize about that. That definitively was not my purpose. I have been thinking to upload also PAE enabled version, but recent information made me to decide that I will concentrate in non PAE kernels. 64 bit OS and kernel will be better direction to those who can use them.
I had written in my first page about that I might build PAE enabled Dpup Exprimo also. And I had thought to use Iguleders 2.6.39-4 kernel as base.
My post which possibly sounded like personal attack was only my desicion not to go along that route. I have updated first page, I apologize the impression which my previous post created and I apologize those people whom feelings I have hurted. Afterwards I can now realize why my post sounded so harsh.
Hopefully this is now end of discussion. Please, no hard feelings. Creating and testing puplets should be fun.
First page information is now updated regarding above.
