No, not running up, it relies on libgtk-3-0 I have tested those who depend on libgtk-3-0 software because that GStreamer can not use.
I'm sorry, I not familiar with the system, to give us trouble ...
Thank you!
Like Upup Precise, this software is currently not spend part of the the software Dpup Exprimo top, just my computer hardware Dpup Exprimo, not very good, is only suitable for upup Precisc

Okay...Guvcview has jumped to the gtk3 boat. And the g_thread error has been fixed in newest gtk3 enabled versions....it seems that it is end of gtk2 and precise pangolin version of guvcview...

Bad thing....we should start to improve gtk3 compatibility soon...Debian is going to gtk3 with apps also...Wheezy seems to follow the trend....

Interesting to say the least!

Posting this message from Precise.... running on an old:

T22 IBM Thinkpad (Notebook)
With 512MB RAM
15-inch screen

He old IBM can find no fault so far with Precise and its hot kernel... (and everyone believed you needed old kernels for old machines... hogwash!) Loaded just perfect and looks the same, Internet connection found itself and set itself up without a hitch.

For those of you that have these-type of old Notebooks stuffed in a garage somewhere, dig em' out and put em' back to work with Precise.

Nice work pemasu!!!!

And hey.... get well soon, you certainly will be missed here on this development my man!

But... God, family and bread & butter always come first remember.

"You take care"

PostPosted: Tue 01 May 2012, 22:26    Post subject: Expanded Broadcom wifi support  

pemasu, jim3630 & Broadcom wifi users,
I have updated the Broadcom-wifi support to include the new brcm open-source driver and logic to select the correct driver for every supported Broadcom device. This includes jim3630's device, making it especially important that he try the attached package.

Note that my testing was limited by my having only a device that requires the b43 driver. But the logic appears to do what I intend. As with the package submitted for precise pup, this upgraded version re-implements the concept of ensuring that certain drivers are loaded in a particular order, to avoid momentary conflicts among newer and older drivers active concurrently. Now, the proprietary driver is loaded first, then the new "brcm" driver, then the old ssb-related b43-type drivers.

That is not to say that this strategy actually works with all device combinations. My hope is that it supports, at minimum, any one such device automatically, at least by the second boot-up. Therefore, I need all who have tested Broadcom wifi on precise-pup will try this new version. We need to confirm that driver conflicts are truly avoided and that jim3630's device now works. If someone has a combination of these devices, possibly also including one using the b44 (wired ethernet) driver, a test with those would be valuable.

Thank you, all, for your help in verifying this package, which if successful would be a candidate for woof. This experimental package includes the brcm drivers, which are not already in precise pup, because pemasu told me that they conflict with the ssb-related drivers. I intend that this package resolves that. So, please look out for that potential conflict. (Maybe pemasu will explain to us the nature of the interference between bcma and ssb.)

Thanks rerwin. I update the Upup Precise woof with this latest and greatest improvement for broadcom detection.

Broadcom spesific amba ie bcm traditionally has not been activated in Puppy kernels. During my broadcom tests I enabled it in one Dpup kernel...when the brcm drivers came in. And I noticed in field reports that b43 - ssb dependent wireless didnt work. When I dropped bcm out...they started to work.

So...now in 3.3.2 kernel brcmsmac driver is bcm dependent. It could be that bcm now does not conflict with ssb dependent b43 but I didnt take that chance of course. I dropped brcmsmac out and I didnt enable bcm. Well....luckily I was aware of the change and previous conflict when rerwin asked the reason.

Atm I dont have much time to test kernel with bcm module preinstalled. But....I compiled bcm and brcmsmac as separate modules and they can be installed now with rerwin`s newest broadcom detection pet.

installed the test package on a pfix=ram run of 5333. rebooted and frisbee auto-detected wifi on wan0 as previously did with this release of 5333. i can not tell a difference. do not have b44 (wired ethernet)to try but attached diag for your review.

thanks for all the hard work.

Subject description: A Puppy version identifier on your desktop
 

Hello all.

I have many different Puppies, and I sometimes wonder which one I am using. So I created a little identifier for Upup Precise and other recent Puppies.

You will need my "less" package, from:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=75161
The default "busybox less" that comes with Puppy is too stripped down to do this.

The excellent replace utility provided by big_pup here:
http://www.puppy2.org/slaxer/replace-2.24-i486-1_SLXR.tgz

the aerial mono font (attached), or any "mono" font

a nice puppy icon, like the one attached, to decorate the script when you will bring it on your desktop, and this code:

Code:

#!/bin/sh
# /root/my-applications/bin/PVersion.sh
# musher0, 2 mai 2012.
####
cd /root/my-documents
export RML="rm -f ~/liste-ps"
ps -a > ~/liste-ps
[ "`grep PVersion.sh ~/liste-ps`" != "" ] && killall less-444 && $RML && exit
# commutateur | toggle
$RML
head -n 4 /etc/DISTRO_SPECS > pversion-temp.txt
tail -n 3 pversion-temp.txt > pversion-tmp.txt
head -n 1 pversion-tmp.txt > pversion-temp.txt
tail -n 1 pversion-tmp.txt >> pversion-temp.txt
cut -d"=" -f 2 pversion-temp.txt > VPuppy
rm -f /root/my-documents/pver*.txt
replace -T -h a 20 VPuppy
replace -T -h 27 20 VPuppy
replace -e -s -T ' U' 'U' VPuppy
replace -s -T '  ' ', v. ' VPuppy
if [ "`grep fr /etc/profile.local`" ];then
   export CHN="\.\:\. Version de Puppy \.\:\."
   else
      export CHN="\.\:\:\. Puppy Version \.\:\:\."
fi
urxvt -fn "xft:Aerial Mono:pixelsize=15" -fg wheat -tr -tint sienna4 -bg sienna4 -sh 50 +sb -g 26x2-230-34 -e less-444 -~ -P "$CHN" /root/my-documents/VPuppy
rm -f /root/my-documents/VPuppy*



The script should go in /root/my-applications/bin. Don't forget to make it executable.

Instructions: To open it, click on it Wink . To close it, press "q" OR press again on the icon or the script. (It acts as a toggle.)

It is also a little launcher, due to the features of less, v.4.44. For example, you can type "!rox ~" in the identifier box and this will open rox showing "root". Once done, you press "return" in the identifier box to re-display the Puppy identifier. Upon return to the identifier, Rox will stay on the desktop, but maybe not another program.

Please notice the localization capacity, at lines 21-25. I've set it up to recognize French, but you can change the "fr" to "it" or "pl", or whatever your language code is in /etc/profile.local. Just make sure to translate the string on line 22 in your language. If there is no language identifier in /etc/profile.local or no /etc/profile.local file, the identifier string will appear in English.

As I mentioned in the first paragraph, this script can be used with any Puppy that has a DISTRO_SPECS file in /etc. It won't work with the former "puppyversion" identifier that exists in older Puppies.

Now if a buddy who's a Windows user tries to snub you with a: "Oh, Windows has an identifier, you know", instead of muttering a four-letter word between your teeth, just click on PVersion.sh to show him.

Enjoy!

Subject description: graphic, sound, wireless ok
 

Wonderful! Thank you very much for this project. I've started it from a usb stick (frugal) without savepup. It works on a laptop HP 520 with wireless broadcom 4312 chip and intel graphics, sound ok. Even on a Netbook EeePC 1005p does graphics, sound, wireless immediately. The first Puppy Linux with full support acpid just like in Windows XP (as shipped). All in all, the Internet, office, multimedia machine from the best - fast, secure, stable and flexible. I'm always surprised, although I know Puppy Linux since 2006 and not only as a last resort look at compared to Windows OS. Unfortunately, my English language skills are poor. So I had to use Google Translator to get me here to thank the developers and give them feedback.
Kind regards Joerg from Dresden - Germany

Hi Richard

Pristine frugal install of Precise5.3.3.3 on my HP550 laptop

Installed your experiment pet

Rebooted

Both wl and b43 showed as loaded in lsmod

but netwiz and dmesg showed that wl was being used

pmodemdiag attached

blacklisted wl - rebooted

now just b43 loaded and netwiz and dmesg showed it was being used

blacklisted b43 - rebooted

no wifi

Notice from jim3630 report that he has both brcm and wl loaded but wl is being used....

Cheers
Peter

Hi.

The other day I observed:
> Geany's editor had sick colours, however (green+turquoise+blue, and pale at that: couldn't read a thing).

That's because of the depth of the colours. Today, back in worgwizard, I set my video to 1280+1024+24, and geany had normal colours again.

BFN.

That is good. This means that the proprietary driver continues to work even if the new "brcm" driver also gets loaded -- as long as it is loaded after wl.

To test the new driver, please blacklist wl in the BootManager, then reboot. I expect things should appear the same, but the diag file should confirm that the new driver is in control. Thanks.

Good. I was a little loss with your post. I couldn see any difference with tested several Geany configurations.

And I tested many.....
