That little monster is your wireless driver. To use it, you will also have to install firmware (which is definitely not included in Slackware), and this is where it gets a little complex. To create the firmware files, you need a program called fwcutter, which you run against a Windows driver. However, if you do a little searching you'll find there are not one, but three versions of fwcutter floating out there on the Internet. This stems from the fact that bcm43xx has been replaced by b43 and b43legacy in 2.6.24 and newer kernels. Each of those have their own version of fwcutter, and neither of them will work for bcm43xx. So what you need to do is use an old version of fwcutter and created your firmware files from that.

That is your wireless chipset, and it will work just fine with bcm43xx. The downside is that bcm43xx is limited to 802.11b speeds, so if you need to go faster, you'll have to ditch bcm43xx and use ndiswrapper, which allows Windows wireless drivers to function in Linux.

dmesg

Thanks again guys. It will give me a project for this weekend.

Tink, as for my dmesg. Well I saved as a file dmesg >>dmesg.txt and it stops about 2-3 line short of the error. The error occures with in the last 10-15 lines just before the log in prompt. So in short, I had to type it. If I have left out a letter(s) and it confuses you, let me know and I'll retype.

Thanks again everyone for all the help and attention.

Any Ideas

All,

As I previously posted I'm getting an error on boot up. My wireless card and sound card aren't working and I don't know if this is a contributor. Does anyone know what this error refers to. I tried to capture it with dmesg but it doesn't capture the last 10-15 lines prior to login. So I had to hand type it in. It is as listed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm anxious to start using my Linux full throttle but with no sound and no networking, my experience will be limited.

Thanks

Sound issues: Have you run alsaconf? (by the way, I'm assuming you're using Slackware)

Wireless: Is the driver loaded (check lsmod) and if so, has the device been configured (iwconfig output)? If both of those are fine, did you request an IP address?


As for the SIOCSIFFLAGS error, I'm guessing it is something from udev, but that is a complete WAG.

Can you please post your /etc/rc.d/rc.M and /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf here?

To answer hangdog's question: the wireless and alsa drivers *are* loaded.
See posts above.



Cheers,
Tink

Tink. Here is the data you requested. I appreciate your attention. What exactly are these files supposed to tel you?

# /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf
#
# This file contains the configuration settings for network interfaces.
# If USE_DHCP[interface] is set to "yes", this overrides any other settings.
# If you don't have an interface, leave the settings null ("").

# You can configure network interfaces other than eth0,eth1... by setting
# IFNAME[interface] to the interface's name. If IFNAME[interface] is unset
# or empty, it is assumed you're configuring eth<interface>.

# Several other parameters are available, the end of this file contains a
# comprehensive set of examples.

# =============================================================================

# Config information for eth0:
IPADDR[0]=""
NETMASK[0]=""
USE_DHCP[0]=""
DHCP_HOSTNAME[0]=""

# Config information for eth1:
IPADDR[1]=""
NETMASK[1]=""
USE_DHCP[1]=""
DHCP_HOSTNAME[1]=""

# Config information for eth2:
IPADDR[2]=""
NETMASK[2]=""
USE_DHCP[2]=""
DHCP_HOSTNAME[2]=""

# Config information for eth3:
IPADDR[3]=""
NETMASK[3]=""
USE_DHCP[3]=""
DHCP_HOSTNAME[3]=""

# Default gateway IP address:
GATEWAY=""

# Change this to "yes" for debugging output to stdout. Unfortunately,
# /sbin/hotplug seems to disable stdout so you'll only see debugging output
# when rc.inet1 is called directly.
DEBUG_ETH_UP="no"

## Example config information for wlan0. Uncomment the lines you need and fill
## in your data. (You may not need all of these for your wireless network)
#IFNAME[4]="wlan0"
#IPADDR[4]=""
#NETMASK[4]=""
#USE_DHCP[4]="yes"
#DHCP_HOSTNAME[4]="icculus-wireless"
#DHCP_KEEPRESOLV[4]="yes"
#DHCP_KEEPNTP[4]="yes"
#DHCP_KEEPGW[4]="yes"
#DHCP_IPADDR[4]=""
#WLAN_ESSID[4]=DARKSTAR
#WLAN_MODE[4]=Managed
#WLAN_RATE[4]="54M auto"
#WLAN_CHANNEL[4]="auto"
#WLAN_KEY[4]="D5A31F54ACF0487C2D0B1C10D2"

#WLAN_WPA[4]="wpa_supplicant"
#WLAN_WPADRIVER[4]="wext"
#WLAN_WPAWAIT[4]=30

## Some examples of additional network parameters that you can use.
## Config information for wlan0:
#IFNAME[4]="wlan0" # Use a different interface name instead of
# the default 'eth4'
#IFNAME[4]="eth0:1" # Set up an IP alias.
#HWADDR[4]="00:01:23:45:67:89" # Overrule the card's hardware MAC address
#MTU[4]="" # The default MTU is 1500, but you might need
# 1360 when you use NAT'ed IPSec traffic.
#DHCP_TIMEOUT[4]=15 # The default timeout for the DHCP client to
# wait for server resonse is 30 seconds, but
# you might want a shorter wait.
#DHCP_KEEPRESOLV[4]="yes" # If you dont want /etc/resolv.conf overwritten
#DHCP_KEEPNTP[4]="yes" # If you don't want ntp.conf overwritten
#DHCP_KEEPGW[4]="yes" # If you don't want the DHCP server to change
# your default gateway
#DHCP_IPADDR[4]="" # Request a specific IP address from the DHCP
# server
#WLAN_ESSID[4]=DARKSTAR # An example of how you can override _any_
# parameter defined in rc.wireless.conf, by
# prepending 'WLAN_' to the parameter's name.
# Useful with multiple wireless interfaces.
#WLAN_IWPRIV[4]="set AuthMode=WPAPSK | set EncrypType=TKIP | set WPAPSK=thekey"
# Some drivers require a private ioctl to be
# set through the iwpriv command. If more than
# one is required, you can place them in the
# IWPRIV parameter (separated with the pipe (|)
# character, see the example).
#WLAN_WPA[4]="wpa_supplicant" # Run wpa_supplicant for WPA support
#WLAN_WPADRIVER[4]="ndiswrapper"# Tell wpa_supplicant to specifically use the
# ndiswrapper driver (if you leave this empty
# the 'wext' driver is used by default)
#WLAN_WPAWAIT[4]=30 # In case it takes long for the WPA association
# to finish, you can increase the wait time
# (defaults to 10 seconds)

Well ... just goes to show that I've never actually tried to use
wireless yet. I totally overlooked the fact that we'd need to
look at rc.wireless.conf ... not that I see a reference to your
particular card in there, mind you.

But if you google for "SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory"
you'll find a few threads (apart from your own ;}) that deal with
both the message and your card on varied mailing lists.


As for the sound-card. What do you see when you start alsamixer?
Something like this (in colour)?
Code:

Now, if you get something like this, and instead of OO in the red
area you have MM that channel is muted. Un-mute it with the M key.

Wireless

Tink,

Here is the read out. Thanks again.

# Wireless LAN adapter configuration
#
# Theory of operation :
#
# The script attempts to match a block of settings to the specific wireless
# card inserted, the *first* block matching the card is used.
# The address format is "hwaddr", with * as a wildcard.
# 'hwaddr' is the unique MAC address identifier of the wireless card.
# The MAC address is usually printed on the card, or can be found via ifconfig.
# Some examples here use only half of the MAC address with a wildcard to
# match a whole family of cards...
#
# All the Wireless specific configuration is done through the Wireless
# Extensions, so we will just call 'iwconfig' with the right parameters
# defined below.
# Of course, you need to have iwconfig installled on your system.
# To download iwconfig, or for more info on Wireless Extensions :
# http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_...nux/Tools.html
#
# Note : you don't need to fill all parameters, leave them blank, in most
# cases the driver will initialise itself with sane defaults values or
# automatically figure out the value... And no drivers do support all
# possible settings...
#
# -- This is a modified '/etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts' script --
# -- I added sections for Prism/GT and Atheros based cards --
# -- (supported by the prism54 and madwifi drivers) --
# -- 16/sep/2004 * Eric Hameleers --

Sound

Well I have sound working. Some of it was info from you guys and some of it is a mystery. I used alsaconf to get the mute off my card and keep it off. They I used play to verify the sound worked with sound files. Well thinking i had the problem fixed, I logged on to KDE 3.5 but the sound didn't work. I tried various configuration areas and all the media/audio players but nothing helped. I shut down and rebooted, but same thing. Then for no reason that I can tell, it just started working. It cracked and popped for a few secs and then BAM there was sound. Let hope It holds huh LOL.

Thanks for the help
Ace
