[SOLVED] Internal Wifi not recognized (3.2 RC5)

Please reproduce your error on a second machine before posting, and check the error by running without saved changes or extra modules (See FAQ No. 13, "How to report a bug"). For unstable Porteus versions (alpha, beta, rc) please use the relevant thread in our "Development" section.

Yes! I fixed it.
Firmware file for my chipset was missing!
For a first test i placed firmware file under new created directory /porteus/changes/lib/firmware/
Which resulted in full success! Internal wifi works. Only thing i don´t like is that i have to click onto connect and enter password for kde wallet after every startup. :(
Maybe i will create a xzm module for firmware file if i can find out how to do this.

On next step i got darktable running. I downloaded and merged a module through USM but there seems to be an unresolved depency! Starting from terminal i got error message "could not find liblensfun.so.1".
I downloaded lensfun package through USM and created it as xzm module. Now darktable works.
Gimp worked on first try.
Rawtherapee still doesn´t work. If i try to start it from terminal i get error message "invalid command" (ungültiger maschinenbefehl). Seems to be something more complicated.
I could try my special method from porteus 3.1 xfce 64bit. I have put all modules for all desktop environments into modules directory and after that my three standard graphics software packages worked just fine (gimp, darktable, rawtherapee). ^^

Excellent! Can you please post your wifi card so I can be sure to include the firmware in the next verion?
You can get the info from the output of: lspci -k
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

Wifi solution is Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200. Firmware file iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode
It is also in the package you posted here https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php ... 531#p50531
But i simply copied it over from APorteus after identifying the file on the Intel website. ;)

[EDIT]
Created my own module. :)
If someone else needs it...
