Which Damnsmalllinux version has the newest ndiswrapper and wpasupplicant version?
 
Hello,
could a person in this place have a look into my blog?.
I need help in order to know which DSL version have a ndiswrapper version >1.9 and wpasupplicant version >0.4.4.
I would like to make running my PC with a WLAN USB Stick. This stick seems to require the versions higher than mentionned above.
So, the persons who have DamnSmallLinux installed on their computer should have a look to the versions and communicate to me? (if higher than the versions mentioned above):
- DSL version?
- result of the command ndiswrapper -v (give the version)
- result of the command wpasupplicant -v (give the version)
Thanks a lot for your kind help.

DSL uses an old kernel (2.4 series) as a way of saving space; this is likely to make it complicated to upgrade ndiswrapper.

There was another variant called DSL-N (Damn Small Linux-Not). It isn't quite as cut down as DSL, but it has a 2.6 series kernel and is perhaps a better option for systems that need more recent drivers.

Unfortunately there seems to be a lack of development on DamnSmallLinux over the past couple of years, so it is time to consider other alternatives.

Puppy Linux is popular amongst the light distros (and has an active community). Tiny Core Linux is also impressively small.

yes.
I already has implemented Puppy on an sub stick for a standalone system: but too fat for my old PC.
I moved to the latest released Tiny Core.
Nice.
Good. Is like putting nitro into an old engine (few quantity, explosive reaction).
The Fritz USB Wlan 057c:5601 still not running.
I am still trying.

Update 12.12.2010:
my Fritz USB WLAN is running on TinyCoreLinux with ndiswrapper.
Very good. My PC seems quicker now with Opera webbrowser in TinyCore than Windows98. I will try now to improve the hardware: put an USB 2.0 Card in the PC then connect the Fritz WLAN USB in the USB2.0. It should be quicker than the mainboard USB 1.1.
So, this thread is CLOSED.
