Skywise
can you get the firmware from windows?
Iraqi

atheros ar5523 ( no firmware )
that all problem i have
skywise how?
rob0
http://wiki.debian.org/ar5523#Installation step 2, firmware
Skywise
Iraqi, it would be one of the files in the driver
Iraqi
rob0 wait because i have back track now
debain is 1 giga
sky how how
rob0
You would use /lib/firmware in Slackware.
Skywise
Iraqi, try what rob0 suggests
Iraqi
rob0 from where in windows i get firmware for my wifi
in windows how i got it then i copy in there /lib/firmware
rob0
grrr ... the link has a URL, did you try that?
Iraqi
waittt
but is for debian ?? it wil work?
mancha
rock the kazbah
rob0
Firmware is for the device, not the OS.
Iraqi
very goooooooooooooooood
wait open web site is want time
rob0 i did that
and in
before this line
# m-a a-i ar5523
i got problem
and it was show me ( ignore) skip ( stop)
rob0
Don't do the Debian stuff. Just get the firmware and put in the Slackware /lib/firmware directory.
Iraqi
can i download manul this firmware
because how i can get it
is in side
sahko
do noobfarm quotes have to be approved before they appear?
rob0
To get good at this, one must be able to pull abstract concepts from what one reads. If you take everything literally, you will not do well.
And yes, I know part of that is the language barrier, sorry, can't help with that.
Iraqi
rob0 my english bad sorry
mancha
there are too many to post all at once
switch10__
I just installed the google chrome browser, but I am getting this error: /usr/bin/google-chrome: error while loading shared libraries: libgconf-2.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Iraqi
what is extration for firmware
i mean this extration for install in windows .exe
rob0
Noobfarm has a continuous feed from ##slackware, just chops them randomly and inserts.
sahko
switch10__: chrome has dependencies
Iraqi
what about for firmware .??
switch10__
sahko, ahh ok
mancha
can someone disconnect Iraqi's power supply?
rob0
Iraqi: the link was a .tgz which implies it is a gzipped tar file.
arfon
Howdy Slackers
rob0
Opening it in Windows might be possible, but rather pointless, I would think.
Skywise
winrar can manage them
rob0
Skywise: ^^ pointless?
stinky
Iraqi: the wifi worked in backtrack 4?
rob0
You get the firmware, you get the source, you boot Linux.
sahko
isnt backtrack 4 ubuntu based?
Skywise
rob0, should be pointless, but in this case....
stinky
Skywise: yes
sahko: ^^
rob0
Then you install the firmware and compile the source.
Finally. "modprobe -v ar5523" and check dmesg.
Skywise
if he warm boots from windows, won't the firmware still be loaded from the windows boot
mancha
"firmware" has lost its true meaning
Skywise
yeah, that was an old trick for some devices that didn't have support
looks like something didn't work
Iraqi
Disconnectoin
sorry
rob0
stinky
Iraqi: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/ar5523
Iraqi

rob0
http://verein.lst.de/~hch/ar5523.tgz firmware. Unfortunately the driver source is in git, and I have no idea how/if you can get that from Windows. Are you depending on the wireless device for Internet?

Iraqi

KaMii
(Action) trusts no one
Iraqi

rob0 what happen?

rob0
We being ##slackware, should use the traditional computing rather than the mass-media definition of hack/hacker.
KaMii

KaMii
Iraqi: go to the TinyCore chat and ask three
rob0
paissad, did you try "man crontab"?
mancha

Iraqi
KaMii i just travil in irc all say go therre go there :D
mancha
or crontab -e <username>
this will edit that user's crontab
Iraqi

rob0
If you don't like Slackware's cron implementation, rip it out and install a different one.
Iraqi
rob0 download it is very small size file
paissad
mancha, actually, i know about crontab -u user, crontab -e , ..... but i would like to have a file where i could put all cron jobs i want for what user i want ..
instead of doing crontab -e for each user
mancha
huh?
Iraqi
stinky i'm from irbil ( arbil ) is capital city for region kurdistan of iraq
mancha
so basically, you don't like dillon's cron
rob0
paissad: < rob0> If you don't like Slackware's cron implementation, rip it out and install a different one.
stinky
Iraqi: oh, okay
mancha
dillon's cron works by giving each user a different crontab
