Is there a guide on compiling modules for wifi adapters?
I'm trying to get my RTL8188CUS based adapter working, on a standard slackware install it's as simple as extracting and running the install script.
On armedslack I've installed make and gcc and got a copy of the kernel source from the raspberrypi github (/lib/modules/3.1.9+/build) but am still having problems.

Code: Select all
make ARCH=armv6l CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/3.1.9+/build M=/root/RTL8188C_8192C_8192D_USB_linux_v3.4.2_3727.20120404/driver/rtl8188C_8192C_8192D_usb_linux_v3.4.2_3727.20120404  modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/lib/modules/3.1.9+/build'
Makefile:567: /lib/modules/3.1.9+/build/arch/armv6l/Makefile: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/lib/modules/3.1.9+/build/arch/armv6l/Makefile'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/3.1.9+/build'
make: *** [modules] Error 2

All wifi usb modules are compiled.

Your module is rtl8192cu.

You need the firmware from the realtek webpage.

From all the googling I've done it seems that the RTL8188CUS does not work with the rtl8192cu module. I did try adding the firmware from realtek but there is nothing I can find in the driver zip. Then I tried the firmware from the debian package with no luck.

You can build your own slackware package.

You have all you need here: http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13.37/desktop/xvkbd/

Hi,

I installed ok the latest image, but after 2-3 reboots I see now the error:
mmc0: Controller never released inhibit bit

I assume its a kind of incompatibility with my SD card or something like this?
I had no problems with the Archlinux/debian so I assume has something to do with this distro...

thx

Oh boy, I haven't run Slackware since....before the turn of the century (I don't think I've ever used that reference of time before). I might just have to go pick up another SD card on my way home from work.

That is kernel related. Maybe an older kernel worked fine with your sd card and the new version is causing problems.

It might be worth looking at the FAT partition to see if there is a config.txt file there. If so it may contain settings incompatible with your system (you can look at it/edit it with a text editor). Try renaming it to something else so the system boots with default settings to see if that works.

Thanks, i'm going to try that. Thought all raspi's are same so this should be no different.

The Pi's are all the same but the devices they are connected to are not, in particular the video devices. You need settings in the config.txt file if you have any HDMI device that does not report its settings in a way the Pi can use in its dynamic detection so you can force appropriate settings. There is a sticky in the 'Basic setup and use' area of the forum on setting up HDMI output.

Thanks for the appreciation. Slackware uses pkgtool as the package manager (installpkg, removepkg, upgradepkg) or if you want to automatically grab the package from the repository you can use slackpkg install emacs .

The following days I`ll release a new version based on the -current tree. I hope things will move in the changelog because the arm version of slackware is lagging behind the x86/x64 version which has undergone major changes last week.

@ sorinm - is your website broken - http://ns1.spit-ct.ro/raspberrypi/ ?
I've tried several times recently and get "Unable to connect".

@ xeonxu - I installed gnuplot on RPi/ARMedSlack 13.37 by downloading it from the repository at
ftp://mirrors.vbi.vt.edu/linux/armedslack/ and using installpkg. It worked fine.
You'll find emacs there too - look here - ftp://mirrors.vbi.vt.edu/linux/armedslack/armedslack-13.37/slackware/FILE_LIST

Cheers,
Peter

Earlier today on LinuxQuestions I announced a load of Raspberry Pi goodies for Slackware ARM, and I thought I'd cross post the news here.

There's a Slackware ARM Installer image and instructions for how to use it, up to date kernel and boot packages, a package that hacks fixes for several annoying problems, some patches for xorg on -current, and prebuilt packages for XFCE 4.10. The new kernels and boot firmware are a big improvement. I intend to update the kernel and boot firmware regularly. There are also SlackBuilds for the Pi specific packages and for the new XFCE, and some other stuff that might be useful.

Get them from here: http://daves-slackbuilds.comlu.com/raspi/
