    [SOLVED] Doing some Beta Testing AntiX 8.5


    Howdy guys. I am testing out AntiX 8.5 Beta for Anticapalista and the AntiX Gang.
    My wireless PCMCIA Cardbus Belkin F5D 7010 ver.6 with a ralink 2561 chipset works out of the box running AntiX 8.2 which I have installed on another Partition on this IBM T23 Laptop of mine.
    Wireless tools are, WICD, Rutilt, and Ceni.

    I tried your script in Start Here Waterhead to try and see why I don't have wireless in 8.5 but little info was given in terminal
    Code:
    harry@biker:~$ chmod +x ~/WirelessSetup
    harry@biker:~$ ./WirelessSetup
    ./WirelessSetup: line 24: ifconfig: command not found
    ./WirelessSetup: line 27: iwconfig: command not found
    harry@biker:~$ sux
    Password: 
    biker:/home/harry# ./WirelessSetup
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    biker:/home/harry#
    I figure it is a firmware issue only as I have the rt 61 module installed according to synaptic.
    Code:

    Being just a home grown biker that just happens to use Linux. I am a bit perplexed. Some more info below.
    Code:
    # uname -r
    2.6.32-1-mepis-smp
    Code:
    biker:/home/harry# dmesg | grep firmware

    thinkpad_acpi: WARNING: This firmware may be missing critical bug fixes and/or important features
    dmesg is gonna be long as hell. So I will just post the end part dealing with wireless

    Now I know you guys learned me better than this. But Beta testing has been a lot of work for me. Kernel 2.6.32.1 wouldn't even boot at first with this beta release on my old Lappy. Had to install a modified minstall-antiX in /usr/bin and execute it through terminal to finally bring up a bootable system. If I can get wireless working to. That would help out New Users to AntiX 8.5 and help polish up this release. Thanks for reading. Happy Trails, Rok

    Edit: Just saw the text file in /home. oops.

    Gonna use this thread for my notes if the mods don't mind.

    Looking through /etc/modprobe.d comparing the differences between AntiX 8.2 and AntiX 8.5.

    No rt2400.conf or rt2500.conf files in AntiX 8.5. But present AntiX in 8.2.

    Ok. in /mnt/hda6/lib/firmware which is AntiX 8.2
    I have.
    1.rt2561.bin
    2..rt2561s.bin
    3.rt2661.bin
    4.rt2860.bin
    5. rt2870.bin
    6. rt3071.bin
    8. rt73.bin


    Ok. I copied over a couple of missing rtxxx.bin from AntiX 8.2 over to Antix 8.5 in /lib/firmware

    Hope this works.

    No joy with that effort. I have this showing in Synaptic as Installed (since initial install, haven't added it) so stumped for the moment.

    I'm not positive of this, but I may see some conflicting modules.

    But first, do you actually have the wireless-tools package installed? There should be one for your distro, no need to install from source.

    The conflicting module that I was referring to is the thinkpad_acpi module. It is showing up as being related to the wireless modules.

    thinkpad_acpi: WARNING: This firmware may be missing critical bug fixes and/or important features
    This module controls all of the extra keyboard functions, those usually accessed by using the Fn key, in conjunction with the function key. One of those functions is to turn the wireless on/off. If it isn't working correctly, it may be keeping the wireless from working. If you have a separate wireless on/off switch, try using that first. Boot several times with it either on or off, to see if it will start.

    Otherwise, if you can find an updated version of the firmware, that may satisfy it. I don't know where that may be found, but here are some links concerning that module. You may find something in the GIT repository, or maybe you need to apply the patch that is offered.

    Browse ThinkPad ACPI Extras Driver Files on SourceForge.net
    Public Git Hosting - linux-2.6/linux-acpi-2.6/ibm-acpi-2.6.git/tree

    To see the state that the wireless is in, run this command.
    Code:
     cat /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/state
    It should output a 0 or a 1.

    0 = off
    1 = on

    If you are getting a zero, try resetting it with this command.
    Code:
    echo 1 > /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/state
    You need to remove and reload the wireless driver module after changing the state of it. That can be difficult, and rebooting may be easier.

    Another thing to try is to remove the thinkpad_acpi module, and try to get the card to function. Since it is interdependent on several other modules, you may need to blacklist it and reboot. You then may need to use terminal commands to activate the wireless, like ifup/ifdown commands.

    Wireless-Tools are installed since distro installation. I double checked though by going into syanptic and making sure, just in case. It is a beta after all.

    Don't know i thinkpad_acpi module is killing wireless. Good point.
    harry@biker:~$ cat /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/state
    1
    harry@biker:~$
    Doesn't look like it though. Just for info In next post I will run your Start Wireless "Wireless Setup TXT" in AntiX 8.2 which this card works in great and see if I can see any differences. Time for Reboot.

    This is output for AntiX 8.2 where the card works out of the box with distro install. No major tweaking was needed to detect card.

    Waterhead, looks like I am not the only one with problems with kernel 2.6.32. Might not be a module issue after all.

    Arch Linux Forums / Kernel 2.6.32 does not work with RT2860 Wireless Card

    After talking with Anticapalista and since this is a beta release. I am going to install a newer version of 8.5 Beta. I haven't had much luck Waterhead with the 2.6.32 kernel and my Raylink card, I also run Puppy 4.31 on this lappy with kernel 2.6.30 and it connects up just fine. Same for AntiX 8.2. Since I am a beta tester. I figure there is something inherntly wrong with the 2.6.32 kernel in this beta release. Hence I am gonna blow away the install and wait for the new beta iso. I will be closing this thread as it seems I am beating a dead horse.
