Old Dell Latitude D610 Wireless missing

There's a difference between what is over-written (overlayed) on the aufs mounts vs what has been already loaded onto the ram. For example, if you replace the kernel or the initrd on your file system, it does not automatically replace the running kernel, or the initrd that have been already loaded o...

Old Dell Latitude D610 Wireless missing

At this point it has been proven that the 3.0.1 vmlinuz and 000-kernel files are not the fix to getting 3.2.2 or 4.0 to signon to the wifi connections. Not so sure, that be the case. The initrd loads the extramods much later in the boot process. By then the original kernel and its drivers would hav...

Old Dell Latitude D610 Wireless missing

You know the goal is to un-/reload the driver after changes have been made (firmware),do you? ;) Kinda pointless question, seeing who suspected and confirmed the firmware was missing and suggested the un/reloading of the driver in the first place :) Here you have another one :D #!/bin/bash if lsmod...

Maybe better to remaster the ISO - add the 3.0.1 vmlinuz and 000-kernel into the 4.0 one and recreate the iso.

Old Dell Latitude D610 Wireless missing

Small problem here, if ipw2200 is not loaded the first command fails and hence the second command of actual modprobe wont work.... That's right, but based on the previous posts, you can almost certainly say that ipw2200 was always loaded. ;) If you were certain, then just the second command would'v...

Ed, use root@porteus:/home/guest# modprobe -r ipw2200 && modprobe ipw2200 (without any path) while 3.2.2 is running. This should un-/reload the driver.It may or may not help. [There will be no output > when done check the wifi.] I see 4.19.113 in the port-4 output, where does this come from? Please...

Old Dell Latitude D610 Wireless missing

Check dmesg if you get any error message, esp. wrt the firmware loading. Wild theory would be the driver (porteus 4 days) is old for the newer firmware (from slackware current). But I doubt it. Try reloading the driver. As root: modprobe -r ipw2200 ; modprobe ipw2200 FWIW, provide also the output of...

Maybe missing firmware, you probably need the ipw2200 firmware package from Slackware.
What are the outputs of these commands (as root)?
lspci -knn
lsmod
dmesg | grep firmware

blkid knows no NVME hard disks in rescue-shell

We have an initrd variant that we are testing which has busybox v1.31.1 and blkid linked to it, rather than a separate binary.

Netsurf sounds like a winner for Porteus.
It's available as a bundle.
