Been primarily splitting time today between Precise 5.3.3.1 and the latest and greatest Slacko release......other than the expected early little problems it's looking really solid........Particularly since this is an early test build.
Excellent work as usual. Smile

Pesamu,

Thanks for all your effort. But it didn't work. Dmesg still only informs is see the USB device, but does not load any drivers for it. Also lsmod does not indicate any drivers loaded. When I try a modules with different chip (Realtek) I see both lsmod as dmesg indicate what it is doing.
It seems the USB ID is not "linked" to the Broadcom driver.
And I have no idea if that can be forced manually.

Regards,

Volhout

P.S. is this driver PET very specific for UPUP 5.3.3, or can it be used with other kernels also ?

Volhout. Could you post lspci -nn findings concerning your wireless chip. I need to check what it tells.

The support for your broadcom usb chip is new.

The pet I provided has just the supposed needed firmwares. You can try them in other Puppy which has that brcm* drivers included. There wasnt any kernel driver module included.

What we test now is brand new testing...

Hi Pesamu,

lspci missed some libs in 5.3.3. I used a different puppy (Slacko) to try the lspci, and it did not list the module. But "lsusb" did.....


    # lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0a5c:bd17 Broadcom Corp.
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub



These id's are the same as in the listing I did post earlier from dmesg.
I'll see if I can find a puppy that already has these (but older) drivers. Maybe Slacko has (3.2.7 kernel).

Volhout. I checked the information once more. I am not sure that the kernel module brcmfmac.ko is still ready to support usb modules. There isnt in .config specs option for usb modules, there is sdio module option only.

Even though there is already firmware available...it can be that the brcmfmac.ko supports those 2 usb chips in the future. I cant do much more atm.

Jim1911. I checked the firmware.dep file and it seems I have missed the dependency for iwlwifi.ko module.

Here is the updated firmware.dep file. Just install the pet. And maybe reboot....or just try once again with rmmod iwlwifi and modprobe iwlwifi.

Also...brcmsmac.ko support has been nowadays linked to broadcom spesific amba. If I would enable it...the broadcom ssb dependent modules will be dropped out. Oh well....there isnt justice in this world. I am thinking to revert back to 3.2.14 kernel. Mavrothal would be happy with this decision....lol..

Just loaded 5.3.3.1 -- sound works, wifi works -- both seem to require puppies with 3.x kernels (so far tested) on this new machine.

key assignments (screen brightness keys, volume and mute keys, etc, still don't work.

In Racy 5.3 (by comparison), brightness keys do work (though reversed). Volume does not.

In case of any use, below is a snip from /tmp/xerrs.log:

Pemasu, I've tried your combo xkeybindings, vattery etc .pets in this machine with various other puppies (looks like it's incorporated in this one) and the machine is unresponsive to it. Continues to ignore the bindings.

battery display is okay in UP5331 as is proc and speaker in the bar, so those portions do seem to work.

Do you have a default set of key bindings in this puppy, or are they all to be added by the user?

I have compiled now the latest xbindkeys in upup precise. Lets see if it helps you.

Yeah...there is the old default set. You see them by running from the menu xbindkeys-config. I havent given much thought yet for finetuning.

You can remove existing keybindings and create them again with your wanted commands with xbindkeys-config

Hello, vtpup.

On the subject of xbindkeys, I have two experiences to share:

xbindkeys provide a low-level binding with the keyboard keys.
You can have interference from a superior level, like

from the key shortcuts you can set up with the ROX-Filer.

For example, if you have set Ctrl-A in xbindkeys to lauch
abiword and in ROX you have set Ctrl-A to launch Alsa-config,
the ROX shortcut will have precedence. Alsa-config will be launched, not abiword.

or

from the window manager, which has absolute precedence over all keybindings.
For example, jwm or icewm will steal any keybinding involving a mouse click. In other words, if you have a key binding in xbindkeys such as Ctrl+A+leftmouse click = abiword, it will be inoperative in jwm or icewm because any desktop click is transmitted to them, not to the xbindkeys program.

So, when you prepare the key conbinations in xbindkeys, make sure that
you do not have a mouse-click reference (which is handled by the window manager) and
that the key shortcut is unique (that the same shortcut does not exist in ROX-Filer).

I hope this helps your understanding of xbindkeys.

BFN.

Note. Icewm can be made NOT to control the background clicks iun the preferences file. Oroborus does not control any background click. Aewm and Echinus, only the left-mouse click (if I remember correctly). In short, you have to test with the window manager you are using.

Addendum:
here is another consideration. Most programs (opera, geany, ROX, for example) reserve control of the mouse right-click for their own context operations. So generally, its of no use to try to configure the mouse right-click in xbindkeys.

@pemasu.

Would you know if the kernel for Upup-Precise has been compiled to read / accept sfs files compacted with the latest gz (with lzma / xz)?

There is supposed to be a 25 % gain of space if the sfs is compacted with the recent xz.

I ask because I tried recompacting the Precise sfs file with a recent xz enabled sfs-utility. The space saving promise seems to be true, but I got a "kernel panic - not syncing" message at reboot.

Of course, "kernel panic" messages can be triggered by many causes, but I would like to eliminate this possibility.

Thanks in advance. Regards.

I do think that you cant just compress main sfs and get it working. I have done the xz compression always with woof.

For fun of it I could build one experimental build with xz compression,

I do have tough time to get transmission to really download torrents.

When I try to download for example this:
http://torrent.ubuntu.com/edubuntu/releases/precise/beta-2/dvd/edubuntu-12.04-beta2-dvd-i386.iso.torrent

I get this in console:
# transmission
** Message: Couldn't read "http://torrent.ubuntu.com/edubuntu/releases/precise/beta-2/dvd/edubuntu-12.04-beta2-dvd-i386.iso.torrent": Operation not supported

I have tried to get understanding of underlying problem with no cure yet.

This is with build without libssl-0.98....just symlinks.

I have compiled transmission several times and it compiles easily and I have tried to throw everything possible needed in to os without cure....

I suppose you first unsquashed the sfs and the resquashed it with
mksquashfs source nameof.sfs -comp xz

Have you tested also if just unsquashing and then resquashing with default gzip compression boots.
I had once problem with the name of my sfs. Barrys code didnt like too many letters in it. Numbers in version should be ok, it should support as long versioning as you want.

Of course dont change the default version numbering or naming...it surely fails.
