Subject description: Can't get parameters right
 

In an earlier post, I let you know how I got Wary Puppy running on my old Compaq and loved it. So much so, that I decided to see how it would run on my ASUS eee Netbook which is currently running Ubuntu 11.10 but very slowly.

I burnt Wary to a 4G USB stick and soon had it running, much quicker than Ubuntu.. However, when I tried to set up the wifi, I ran in to problems.

When I run the connect wizard and scan, the system can see my router (and no others) with out any problems. However, the parameters are not all the same.

My router requires Security to be on, WEP encryption, mode to be Client and Security Option to be Shared Key. However, the Wary wizard only allows me to select AdHoc or nothing for mode and Open or nothing for Security Option.

I am part of a large wifi network that has over 100 WAPs and 20 routers and even though I am the Network Administrator, I can't just go out and change all the parameters to comply with Wary.

My ASUS netbook has 512Mb RAM and a 8Gb solid state hard disk.

The WAPs and Routers we use in the network are all TP-LINK.

Any input would be appreciated.

Tony

Jemimah's Puppeee is a derivative optimized specifically for the ASUS eee.
It's still pretty recent, but no longer supported, as Jemimah is now pursuing other interests.
If you want to give it a try, it's here.

Thanks for that. I've found the ISOs. Mine is the Celeron cpu so I'll give it a go.

Dewbie and tonymoloney hope it is okay if I ask
about that puppeee for celeron too.

My CUPtemp goes up and up and up.

So I try to find the threads about CPU scaling.
CPU FREQUENCY SCALING 1.3-2 - Ondemand (dynamic) - GUI
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=45143
Was not some of the Celeron problematic on such.
How does one know

My fan now run at 1420 rpm and that seems not enough to cool it
even in idle having no prog going.

Hardware only list that it is a Intel Celeron M processor for 900 MHZ
I may have the M 353
I've tested puppeee44 and Snowpuppy 5 and Slacko 53 on it and
all of them run too hot.

I have no idea how hot debian Xandros run due to it have no temp?
Or one have to know to ask for it in terminal.

I may start a new thread if you find it non proper to hijack this one.

@nooby:
I wouldn't know about cpu temps, as I don't have an ASUS eee and have never used Puppeee.
A new thread might be the way to go.

@tonymoloney:
Be sure to check Jemimah's .sfs folder; she also packages many apps in that format.

@ nooby
AFAIK, the only way to slow down CPU frequency in Puppeee is menu->Setup->Eee-Control->CPU. Here you can swich between Powersave (~600MHz IIRC) and Performance (~900MHz).
About which temperature are we talking? In Performance mode usual temp for my one is less than 70°C, IIRC it was never more than 80°C.

Rolf as Dewbie indicate I should stick to my new thread. But few answer there Smile

Oh so that set it down to 600MHz I ahve to test that then.
to me it is more the fan noise and not really temperature.
No heat no need for fan. Smile

But for to live up to the title of the thread.


Wary Puppy can't set up wifi on ASUS eee netbook

my naive take is that first one should use Puppeee44
and to know which puppee 44 to use one look for if
one have a Celeron or an Atom cpu then one check
if puppeee get wifi going. Most likely it will.
If I remember ... puppeee is a Puppy 430 tailored for Asus Eeepc

On my eeepc 900 that have a celeron wifi lights up
on all linux I tested so far. puppeee44 snowpup5 and slacko53
but I have not tested wpa only seen that it sees all my neighbors
routers and mine too.

As I remember. if it comes down to drivers for wifi on Asus
I trust that puppeee has the best drivers she could find.
Pemasu when he did Snowpup made use of her puppeee and fluppy
so that is a good compromise. He has Snow pup 20 I guess
I only use snow 5 on or for nostalgic sentiments.

My Wifi (Eee900, WPA) works fine with wary-511 Very Happy . I don't know about the newest one. This was the main reason, I didn't answered to tonymoloney directly. Also Wifi device may differ (I know only Eee900).
