I would say give it a try.

I need more information. Are you using the Pi3 and its inbuilt wifi? Or if the Pi2, what wifi adaptor?

Pi2 and 8192cu module.
btw, in puppy's forum there [email protected] had same issue, but you just ignore page-9 #8 .

Ah, yes, a problem. I also have a wifi adaptor that uses this module, and I couldn't get it to work. Fortunately, I have another that does.

There is quite a lot of discussion on the Pi forum about this module. '8192cu.ko' is an out-of-tree driver provided by the RPi kernel developers, in other words, it is not in the official kernel source. The official source has 'rtl8192cu.ko', which has been disabled in the RPi kernel build.

Does it work for you with Raspbian?

Here is some discussion:

bought EW-7811Un (8192cu) about 2 years, never had issue with raspbian.
your link is old story.
thinking you better follow raspbian's kernel not ubuntu, we play Pi after all and they fixed Dirty Cow issue.

1: Yes it is slow on any system in any Mozilla based browser. Use a Webkit browser, OR use youtube downloader and play the video with SimpleVLC.

2: Is your time set correctly? If not any mozilla based browser, and most WebKit browsers will give security errors.
issue(3)..............................can't install 'sonic-pi'
What is sonic-pi? Some kind of audio procesing library or application?

Ok just took a look. What trouble are you having installing Sonic Pi?

I assume you downloaded the deb and double clicked on that, what is the error given to run from the console?

That is a time setting error. Which version of Quirky are you running?

Also make sure that your date is set correct, your time is set correct, and the correct time zone is selected.

Quirky Xerus 8.1

Seems a problem with the clock ?
It's off plus the times don't match the timezones :)
I'm not goin to worry about it now.
I want to get the x_86 (8.0?)version going on my other
system (via usb) but no luck so far ....

And you did setup the automatic sync for the time?

I ask as I had the issue with Quirky Xerus 8.0.98, though not with 8.1.

Not sure .... I'll look at it again today .....
FWIW ............. Got Quirky on x_86 machine
NONE of the issues as RPi
Utubes even stream :)
I think I may have read that the Pi hardware
itself can't quite do video ?

The RPi can do the video no problem. Unfortunately Seamonkey uses a software only renderer, so it does not work as well as many other browsers (that use the hardware rendering). If you use a good browser that supports HW rendering then problem solved, or download the video and use SimpleVLC to play it.

It is a matter of setting things up correctly, nothing more.

As to the time issues:
Yes the x86 has a hardware RTC to hold the time, so it does not need to sync from a time server. You will find once you setup the Quirky on the RPi to automaticaly sync the time with a time server the problem will be solved, unfortunately the RPi does not have an RTC (the battery used to power one on the x86 would be almost enough to run the entire RPi).

Yes, and Puppy streams youtube, keeps time, and can have whatever you want, without forcing a bunch of extras down your download.

Got the time set.....
(had to use the terminal(not my forte))
I cannot get the 'setup' to work for time.
That did, in fact, enable the websites I was
not getting ......

Note that my website http://barryk.org/ is down, including my blog.

My host hostgator.com has told me too much traffic to my blog.

I am trying to figure out a solution with them.

Yes, I have an "unlimited" account, what they call their "Baby Croc" account, or what they used to call it any way.
