Re: simple wifi for ttylinux?
I was looking at some of the posting on this site and it seemed to be dead. I am so happy to have a reply from you and will very much like any
help and direction that you can provide.
I am running on a Dell 9 minibook. This has 1 gig of ram and a solid state hard drive. This was one of my miminalist purchase for a few dollars. The
battery has been removed and the hard drive. This is just an experimental unit for me, just real pure. I have loaded the iso for ttylinux i686 on a usb drive (128 mb) using the windows program (oh, hell!) Rufus.
I do not have access to a wired internet except at a friend's house. It works well with the etho0 using the installed text based browser. The problem is that I just have wifi most of the time so I am very interested in getting it all working on ttylinux. My major interest is to work at a real command line system and not a console or terminal window. This is the appeal of ttylinux. I have also been trying to get the wifi working on the gui level with tiny core linux which I have also installed on a usb (256mb). So I know this device has a horrible Broadcom chip. I have been trying to use the windows driver on ndiswrapper. Still working on this. The mainstay OS for this device is a usb (4gb) loaded with the current version of Bodhi Linux which does natively bring up the wlan0 which I use to research topics to apply to the other OSes.
I am just getting to know how things work a little. I have used the development tools to compile and install my favorite editor, nano and it seems to be working fine. I also installed a precompiled version of xlisp-plus and simply placed the in /usr/bin as well as the nano file and both are working well.
Look I am just beginning to use linux so I do need some mentoring. I am really in to learn as much as I can. I can send you the results of lspci which will indicate the precise hardware I am working with. Thanks again for your reply: Joe
I am amazed at the ethernet capabilities of ttylinux. The problem is that I only have wifi access. I want to
work on getting a wifi access. How do I even begin?????? Could someone point me in the right direction?
My skills are someone limited and am at the novice level. Please help
