Hiyas...

An updated 3.5.2.11, from a working 3.5.2.8, shows no wifi device available under the
network setup.. shows only the ethernet port.

Manually loading the iwl4965 module (under 'More') loads the module but reports back
that no new interfaces were found. So it loads the module but never inits the device.

Hardware shows the intel wifi is out there but network setup fails to find or use it.

On a fresh savefile, if I unload the wifi module it's currently using, setup is unable to reload
the wifi device and remains MIA, even with a manual reload of the module.

Satori. I think you should test how things go with fresh 3.5.2.11 install. Without using previous update or transferred savefile. I am interested how fresh 3.5.2.11 works.
Updates and transferred savefiles does not always work.

If fresh 3.5.2.11 works okay. I am happy. You have to remember these builds have been testing and experimental ones so far. I have hoped that 3.5.2.11 would be the first more mature one with Woof-CE.

I dont use Puppy Network Wizard at all. I cant comment problems with it. I use Simple Network Setup. It is the one Barry Kauler has designed. Puppy Network Wizard is included for ndiswrapper usage. Otherwise...I havent used it for years...
Frisbee is not included intentionally. I dont want more confusion of error feedback. If there would be 3 network tools, I couldnt track the problems at all.
I can count to one...

Generic advice for all networking problems:
In console: pdiag
Post the the created tar ball as attachment. It has been useful tool, when there is problem with missing stuff.

On a fresh 3.5.2.11 savefile, using Simple Network:

1) wifi connects using the iwl4965 module
2) text fields for 'bus' and 'description' on the module shows as blank... no info
3) under 'load module', the iwl4965 does not show up, iwl3945 appears tho.

If I unload the iwl4965 module and do a manual reload, the module loads but reports
that no new interfaces were found and wifi disappears from the network devices list.

Using the same flash drive on another Dell D830 that uses a Broadcom wifi device
instead of an Intel 'N' device, the wifi network sets up correctly using module 'wl' and
it's displayed info description shows up. This is using the custom savefile that was
failing on the D830/Intel wifi laptop. The fresh savefile also starts the wifi correcty.

On a Dell C640 (old pentium laptop), 3.5.2.11 fails to start xwindow when it boots.
However, an 'xwin' continues the start up correctly... probably a timing thing. The wifi
network sets up correctly using an Intel 2200BG wifi card.

In either case, the problem is iwl4965 specific to a previous savefile built under 3.5.2.8,
trying to copy iwl4965 driver files from 3.5.2.8 to 3.5.2.11 has no effect.

--------

Final Solution:

Mounted the bad 3.5.2.11 savefile under another running system and deleted all iwl4965
driver files from /lib/firmware and /lib/modules.

Once this savefile was used as a running system, wifi started correctly with no problems
using the files from the Wheezy SFS.

Hi Pemasu,

3.5.2.11 is looking good, but I notice we have lost the icon from the menu button. Looks like you have been tinkering with the jwm config files including adding of /usr/share/pixmaps/puppy to the icon paths for those .svg icons. I was wondering about upgrading the jwmconfig2 package, but discovered that if I install the 01micko's files I lose some of those icons from the menu because that path is lost. Some of the .desktop files have the full path to those icons so still work, but for example boot manager, IP info and font manager don't. Just an observation really and not a problem if I don't change anything. Easy to put the menu button icon back too of course.

All gtkdialogs in woof and many icons are under heavy development by zigbert (he is making 10-20 changes/additions a day!!!).
Several pets may also need to be updated to match the new puppy look Cool

OscarTalks.
Thanks. The loss of jwm tray mini-dog icon was not intentional and in fact has nothing to do with updates of .svg stuff.
I am tracking the reason so that woofing behaves next time.

Edit. Got it. It is in fact bug problem with 3builddistro. The conditions when 3builddistro inserts with sed command that mini-dog row to the .jwrc-tray will be not met. I dont know when they have been met. .jwrc-tray needs to have that row because insertion will fail due to conditionals:

Code:
#110912 modify jwm to use menu icon 'start-button.png' if present...
#note, similar code also in /usr/sbin/icon_switcher (desktop icon switcher script).
if [ -f rootfs-complete/root/.jwmrc-tray ];then
 if [ -f rootfs-complete/usr/local/lib/X11/${NEWTHEME}/start-button.png ];then #default theme has menu icon.
  if [ -f rootfs-complete/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/start-button.png ];then #precaution.
   if [ "`grep 'start-button\.png' rootfs-complete/root/.jwmrc-tray`" = "" ];then
    #the default is to use 'mini-dog.xpm' with text "Menu"...
    echo "rootfs-complete/root/.jwmrc-tray modified to use start-button.png menu icon"
    echo "(which is in rootfs-complete/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/)"
    PTN1='s%label="Menu" icon="mini-dog\.xpm"%icon="start-button.png"%'
    sed -i -e "$PTN1" rootfs-complete/root/.jwmrc-tray
   fi
  fi
 fi
fi


if you check Puppy icon themes, there mostly isnt that start-button.png and so...insertion fails.
I will modifiy now my .jwrc-tray file and repackage jwm-wheezy pet.

Thanks OscarTalks.

Seems like Wheezy can't create savefile on ext2 partition... Can someone check and confirm?

It worked for me.

BTW, the old Legacy GRUB Config is still in the menus, but it's dead.

Wheezy 3.5.2.11
I tested creation of savefile in ext2 (creating an ext2 savefile in an ext2 partition) in a hard drive and also in a USB flash drive.
Both worked OK for me.
What happens when you try to do it?
