Here's something weird in the xorg log. If I read it correctly, some modules are built-in, but the system, nevertheless is trying to load them:

And why modesetting is missing?

Artsown. Creating udev rule for rt2500pci assuming that it is associated to wlan0 is easy.
My attached pet has udev rule for disabling powersaving for rt2500pci wireless driver.

The problem is that I would like it to be generic like wlan* so that rt2500pci would be disabled as wlan1 also.

Test the pet. Reboot is required before the result can be seen.

Anikin. Modesetting_drv.so xorg driver needs to be in alternated location and not found automatically... if not needed. It is not useful if you dont need it. intel atom netbooks with certain intel gma graphics need it and I hope modesetting can be taken in use when needed in those netbooks. Modesetting driver is unaccelerated xorg driver for getting better resolution in those dedicated netbooks.

Otherwise. It is wanted behavior that modesetting driver is not found.

Thank you, pemasu for explaining this. No issues with modesetting, just reporting what's in the log.

I've been reading your dotconfigs (out of curiosity) for some time, and they didn't have built-in video modules in your earlier builds. They seem to have appeared in upup Raring, is that correct?

I ditched Seamonkey and installed Firefox from ppm. Works like a charm!

3.8.7:
Looks nice, fast, was able to change to 1024x768 on Quickset (new! - doesn't usually work from there). Sound ON and working by default.
No working FlashPlayer by default nor did loading files/XOrg reset/ nor the usual Mickey Mouse tricks persuaded it to play. Too close to 'buntu? They don't like Adobe; does anyone?! SM crashed at first use, not the most stable version. Just needs a proper browser and email client now!

Pemasu, I tested your udev pet and Raring starts up with power
management off on wlan0. My brief testing suggests your method
works on Raring 3.8.7. Is the pet supposed to work on other pups?
If so, I can do more testing if you wish.

Recall that I had initially modified rc.sysinit but later found that
one pup turned pwr mgnt back on again. So I placed the script
in /root/startup (runs after X starts) and that has worked ok on all
the many pups I've tried that have the bug.

artsown. It should work in most Puppies. It has been created as simple udev rule file and placed to the usual location. That kind udev rule based, rt2500pci extra command, can be included to the base build. That is why I wanted to have feedback. That rule is for rt2500pci only.

Xorgwizard seems to work OK even if run many times. There is a file xorg.conf.new generated in /root but is it supposed to be left there?

On my nVidia GeForce FX 5200 machine I don't know if it is possible to load the nv driver in xorgwizard, but I can select and load vesa if I want to. The default nouveau driver seems OK with this kernel. Glxgears (after export vblank_mode=0) shows 468 FPS which is not bad.

There is a new version 173.14.37 of the nVidia legacy driver released a few days ago. Don't yet know if it will compile in these newer kernels, probably not though.

Upup Raring still does not boot to desktop on my Pentium 4 SiS chipset machine. It gets to a cursor in the middle of a black screen and freezes like that with no response.

Works fine on all my other computers including an old Dell Pentium M laptop.

OscarTalks. If I decide to stay with this kernel, I will give a go for proprietary graphics drivers. But you can try getnvidia-0.8.1.pet by Shinobar. You find links from this forum for it. It compiled nvidia proprietary driver in 3.8.4 kernel just fine.

Also after patching I managed to compile catalyst modern driver. Legacy should compile as well. But havent tested them yet with this kernel.

So far feedback of this kernel has been promising. I might stick with it for awhile.

nv_drv.so is in alternate location. I dont know if new xorgwizard sees it. Of course you can manually move nouveau_drv.so and switch nv_drv.so in place instead. Check /usr/lib/x content. That is the alternate location. And /usr/lib/xorg is the location for offered xorg drivers which are selectable.

I still have problem with savage card in the new build (I guess old savage cards are no longer supported) but new xorgwizard works well. It was easy to switch to vesa. Seamonkey crashed once and asked to send report to Mozilla.

Pemasu,
I think Shinobar's getnvidia only downloads and builds the latest drivers and not the 173.14.xx legacy drivers.

I used the GUI for unloading the nouveau driver which pops up and after reboot the nv_drv.so was in with all the other drivers (not in the drivers-alternate location) but xorgwizard was not offering it to me. Not really a problem if nouveau is better anyway and all the graphics are present and correct.

I don't suppose you have any ideas about my blackscreen with frozen cursor on my SiS machine, do you?

Pemasu, I ran tests on several pups of your rt2500pci-udev-rule-power-off-0.0.1.pet. The
following pups tested ok:
Raring 3.8.7
Wheezy 3.5.2.5
Precise 3.8.3.1
Lucid 5.28 on 3.18 kernel

The following pups did not test ok:
Slacko 5.5 4g
Racy 5.5

Slacko and Racy both started up with wlan0 power management ON, and they both failed a
download speed test I use. The pups that were ok started up witrh power management
OFF, and they passed my d/l speed tests.

All pups are installed frugal on a FAT32 hard drive partition using a mult-boot menu.

Sorry. You are right of course. I just dont remember those nvidia numbers. I think legacy can be hard bit.

Artsown. Thank you of the feedback. Anyway. I can use that udev rule now on in my builds.
Thanks.

I booted with puppy pfix=nox on the SiS machine and from there I can run xorgwizard but it does not offer me the sis_drv.so sis driver which I know is the correct one.
