sc0ttman, I salute you dude, this product is so appreciated.



However, not knowing very much about linux (I know a little more after last night Very Happy ) I spent many many many hours trying to deal with networking.

The USB WLAN thing is a Asus USB N-13 (B1),
the A1 and B1 revisions are two very different chips, the one I'm trying to get going is Realtek rtl8192cu https://wikidevi.com/wiki/ASUS_USB-N13_rev_B1

When I try to connect to my network with the correct WPA2 key, I get a kernel panic and num- and capslock blinks.

So, I have tried blacklisting drivers, installing new ones, tried Windows drivers but man... I will not give up, but some help could be really great.

When the kernel panics, you get alot of text onscreen - can this be found in some log after a reboot?

OH ALSO! I have to generic (made in china) NES controllers with USB-jacks. These pop up in in Windows as a regular gamepad, what do I have to do to get Puppy Arcade to find them?

Sc0ttman has not replied, so here is a suggestion. The in-kernel version of the rtl8192cu driver is notoriously bad. So I have attached a better one built from vendor sources. It is specifically for the latest Puppy Arcade - Slacko 593, k3.4.94.

Please report back.

Thanks, but I can't get it to work. I have "rtl8192c_common" and "rtl8192cu" blacklisted, but this way, I have no wlan-device showing at all.

EDIT: Nevermind, I think I whitelisted the rtl8192c_common and then suddenly it worked! THANKS ALOT MAN!

Excellent. Just to be sure, do a reboot and confirm that your blacklisting holds.

I don't have a copy of Puppy Arcade, but the driver works fine for me in the base Slacko 593.

Well now that I've got networking going, and I've managed to transfer alot of roms via ftp, I need to get the gamecontrollers/gamepads working.

Could someone guide me here? Is there a "dmesg" something command to see whats connected to the usb ports?

Please Smile

That was it, thank you for that

These are my controllers:

Code:
Bus 007 Device 002: ID 0079:0011 DragonRise Inc.
Bus 007 Device 003: ID 0079:0011 DragonRise Inc.


I will google around and try things but if someone knows right off the top what to do, I'm all ears Very Happy


Well, I'll just keep them coming;

Code:
2544 MiB free (incl. buffers,cache) of 2656 MiB total RAM (shared unaccounted for)


How come it can't find all 8gb's of RAM I have installed?


1: How do I get the gamepads working?
2: How come I won't get any sound via HDMI? (SOLVED: had to add radeon.audio=1 to grubsettings)
3: It doesnt detect all of my ram, why?


Sorry people, many questions...

EDIT! Ok I'm really trying here, keep in mind my Linux skills are extremely limited. So, tonight I've managed to get audio working, and I sort of got the gamepads working. Need help with this one though...

When I boot up with the gamepads connected, they don't show up in /dev/input .. I tried running modprobe joydev and modprobe usbhid but nope. However, they do show up as js0 and js1 when I reconnect them while the OS is running.

This is one problem. The other one is, when calibrating them, only one of them works at a time. I can calibrate js0 fine, but when I switch to js1 it's like the gamepad is dead.

So, at the moment I'm going to bed but I really need these two solved before moving on.

Thanks alot, sorry for posting alot....

I was trying Arcade 11.

It doesn't seem to matter where I put my rom folder - the rom loader can't seem to find it and nothing that I click on seems to do anything. All I have is a green arrow pointing up...

What am I missing here?

Hey guys! I'm copying this over from the beginners forum since a lot of these problems seem to be Puppy Arcade specific. I'm a total Linux beginner so all help is greatly appreciated.

I'm running Puppy Arcade 11 on a couple computers, one of them being a mid-2014 Macbook Pro with Retina. Unfortunately the wifi did not work out of the box, and despite a few days of Googling I still don't quite understand how I can get to fixing that. One solution I found was taking a driver that Apple supplied on a support disc and installing it using ndiswrapper, but Apple stopped giving out those discs a while ago. Is there any other way to go about it?

Also is there any way to get some of the functionality as a laptop that OS X offers? Things like battery life indicators, screen brightness, sleep mode when the lid is closed, etc.

Finally, super nooby question, but I got the .pet for Tuxcube and double clicked to install it, but I can't figure out how to use it now Embarassed There are Tuxcube files in the filesystem now, but nothing I do opens any interface, nor is it in the rom-loader. How do I use it?

Thanks Chris, I'll look into it. In the meantime I'm interested in trying to get Puppy to work before attempting another solution.

Have you considered using a usb wiffi adapter compatible with the kernel of the Puppy Acrade version you are running as a easy solution. I would turn off the wireless in the mac bios 1st before going this route if me to avoid conflicts of hardware.

I am hesitant to recommend a usb wireless adapter since I do not run Puppy Arcade.
But I am pretty sure another member has a good idea on what is plug and play .

The USB wireless Chip I use on the puppy distro I am running below. Mine (usb) plugs inside the netbook and is hidden from view.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=863985#863985

Edit: It won't hurt to show what the internal wireless chip in your Mac uses, you know.
There are menu entries for looking at hardware specs in Puppy.
I am just a command line type of linux user.
But Puppy has the tools built in to show your exact wireless chip name and numbers.

Try which or whereis in terminal for tuxcube. I am not familiar with it.
Or use Pfind in menu and look to see if tuxcube has a launcher in /usr/bin/tuxcube.

to launch it if it is in there.

Code:
tuxcube

You need a pae kernel for 32 bit to see all 8 gig of ram.
I am not on Puppy right now but I am on a 32 bit system with 8 gig of ram on this laptop.
Because I run a pae kernel. All 8 gig of my ram is seen.
But again. I am not on a Puppy edition presently.
