Lenovo S41-35

Post#1 by evergreen » 27 Mar 2016, 17:22

Hello,

Everything was working with Porteus 3.1 x64 XFCE in my old laptop, Now I was testing my Laptop Lenovo S41-35 with my USB key and I notice my WIFI is not working .

Driver name "Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4 Wireless Network Adapter" also my BT "Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4 Bluetooth 4.1"

Would be great to see working my wifi to the next update.

Regards
Porteus-XFCE-v3.2.2-x86_64 Kernel 4.9 AMD A8-7410, APU AMD Radeon R5 Graphics M330

This means that this thread is for you:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2287060

The driver would be included in this firmware, but it needs kernel 3.19 or higher:
https://launchpad.net/~hanipouspilot/+a ... 12_all.deb

Slackware current will be 4.4.3 or higher, thus next porteus version should work.

Maybe you can have a look at neko's kernel builder, to get right away the appropriate kernel:

I am learning everyday a little bit more of this fantastic distribution , I was checking all of this and now I know I need to upgrade the Kernel and then try to make working out the firmware .

One question ? have I convert this deb to xzm and replace the original firmware in Porteus?

Thank you for your accurate and fast information

1.0 upgrade your kernel 3.29 or higher according to neko's instructions. People will help you, if you get into problems. Describe accurately what you have done and your outputs.

2.0 download the firmware package. Right click on it. You will see a deb2xzm submenu that will transform it into a porteus module. Move it into /porteus/modules folder and activate it. ath10k is in there I saw it. Then steps to get it working root mode seems to be:

Code: Select all

su
modprobe ath10k_pci
echo "168c 0041" | tee /sys/bus/drivers/ath10k_pci/new_id
modprobe ath10k_pci
Carpe diem.

I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

Yes I did used the links that you provide me thanks, talking about bluetooth I tried to create new modules with USM.

I tried to make it work with blueman unsuccessfully, something is wrong with python, gtk and Dbus maybe I should try with other bluetooth manager the next time :D

The solution should be here https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=81&t=3619

Before downloading the necessary packages try:

Code: Select all

updatedb
locate blueman
locate bluez
If nothing comes out it should mean that they are not included in rc yet and maybe they have not been on fanthom porteus 3.1 kde. You have to add the necessary packages as proposed in the thread.
Carpe diem.

Make sure you start the bluetooth service.

chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth
/etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth start

Well In order to contribute , today I tried to follow the last instruction with Porteus KDE

chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth
/etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth start

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ su
Password: 
root@porteus:/home/guest# chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth
root@porteus:/home/guest# /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth start
Starting Bluetooth services:  bluetoothd hciconfig sdptool hciattach
D-Bus setup failed: Name already in use
root@porteus:/home/guest# 
Apparently this module is ON... and Bluetooth Device still not found
