Marv,


My MSI u270 netbook is using Realtek rtl8188ce 802.11n pci-e nic.
(As far as I know)


As a quick and dirty diagnostic stab, copy the directory /lib/modules/all-firmware/rtl8188_8192su into the directory /lib/firmware and reboot. Then use one of the network managers to look for a wireless Interface. I've been testing PeasyWifi with good sucess and like it. Not at all elegant (the hack above, not PeasyWifi Smile ) but....

Edited once for Caps and clarity.

I created a savefile for xslacko 2.0. next, I copied rtl8188_8192su folder
from /lib/modules/all-firmware/
to /lib/firmware/

reboot
no luck

Marv,

Thanks anyway.


@rg66

I tried to run pup-kview from terminal
but it doesn't want to run.

So, if I want to use xslacko, i might have to settle for x-slacko 1.1 for now.

@ pchan

/usr/local/Pup-Kview/Pup-Kview. You need the CAPS.
Or you can use lsmod from terminal and look for rtl8188xx

If not you can try Control Panel > System > BootManager > Modules tab > Add new module and try rtl8188ee or maybe rtlwifi.

rtl8192cfw.bin does exist in /lib/modules/all-firmware/rtlwifi. That directory is symlinked from /lib/firmware but possibly the symlink doesn't work in this instance? Could try replacing the symlink in /lib/firmware with the rtlwifi directory from /modules/all-firmware, reboot, and repeat 01mickos directions above. Could also try copying that .bin directly into /lib/firmware.

I did as you suggested that is I found the file, rtl8192cwf.bin and copied it over to /lib/firmware/ then reboot. Unfortunately, it didn't work. I didn't recreate the Sy link because when I clicked on it, it appeared to work.

Hopefully, a solution can be found. Previously versions of puppy slacko , I have never encountered this problem before. Puppy slacko up to slacko 5.6 always worked very well on my netbook. Something changed from slacko 5.7 onwards.

Hello @PChan

You indicated that you copied the file. I need to ask, when you shutdown, did you save the session? And, when you rebooted I also ask; Did you check your library to see if the file you copied is there in the location you copied to?

Hope this helps

gcmartin,

Yes, I checked again. After reboot, the settings was saved properly and the file, rtl8192cfw.bin is still at /lib/firmware/

This time. using simple file sharing, the wlan button appeared.
But when I clicked on the wlan button, I immediately get a black screen with lines of wordings. (see attached)

Then, nothing else could get me back to terminal or the windows gui. I tried pressing ctrl+alt+backspace but nothing worked. Finally, I had to press and hold the power on/off button of my netbook to shutdown.

Ouch, that's a kernel panic. Puppy just left a stinky one on the carpet! Shocked

No it's a kernel "oops".

Seems like a bug in the rtl8192ce kernel module. I'm afraid not much can be done apart from using a different kernel. Or possibly ndiswrapper if you can locate a windows driver and blacklist rtl8192ce. May still need the firmware though.

bug in the rtl8192ce kernel module

Some of these Realtek devices regularly throw up non-detections (even detection without operation) and have been discussed in other threads over the last 2-3yrs+. Sometimes two devices show up instead of one causing confusion - BK knew how to fix that. Blacklisting may be required. One simple solution has been to alias them as a similar device. But which one?! Trial and error or consult one of the Forum experts who know about these things. Search.
