upgrade to dbus-python-1.2.18 'broke' WiFi


Has anyone else needed to revert back to dbus-python-1.2.16 because the upgrade
to dbus-python-1.2.18 from the slackware64-current repository 'broke' WiFi ?

The USB WiFi adapter I have is a tp-link model TL-WN725N and dbus-python-1.2.18
seems to have removed support for it.

The same module as always for several years now which gets a fresh build every time
the kernel is upgraded along with all of the kernel modules and kernel firmware.

/lib/modules/5.13.4/kernel/drivers/staging/rtl8188eu/r8188eu.ko

Working perfectly _before the upgrade to dbus-python-1.2.18

Quit working _after_ the upgrade to dbus-python-1.2.18

Working perfectly again by making one and only one change...
reverted back to dbus-python-1.2.16

Interesting I did a clean install of Slackware64-current using the July 22nd ISO on my T410 Thinkpad which until yesterday had solid wireless connectivity. I didn't investigate a lot with the unit and did a reload of Debian 10. Wireless connectivity is fine with Debian 10.

OK, so it's not just me.

For anyone having the same or similar problem and would like to test
if reverting back to dbus-python-1.2.16-x86_64-4
fixes it, here are the saved copies of the .txz & .txt

http://glennmcc.dynu.com/download/db...6-x86_64-4.txz
http://glennmcc.dynu.com/download/db...6-x86_64-4.txt

Found them here....

Well, I see that Debian 10 AKA "Buster" has .... python3-dbus_1.2.8-3_amd64.deb
https://packages.debian.org/buster/a...-dbus/download

Therefore, it would not exhibit the problem which seems to exist with Slackware64-current
upgrading from dbus-python-1.2.16 to dbus-python-1.2.18

_________
+--------------------------+
Thu Jun 21 22:58:42 UTC 2018
l/dbus-python-1.2.8-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.

v1.2.8 was in Slackware64-current way back in June of 2018
and at that time the USB WiFi adapter in-question was indeed working perfectly
as it had been for several years.

The only change that caused it to stop working is that upgrade from v1.2.16 to 1.2.18
and as noted it now works perfectly again with the only change being to revert to 1.2.16

Hi,

I also had to revert but for an other reason.
My g19 screen was not running anymore after update.
Trying to start it in console gave me
Code:
No module named dbus
Reverting to 1.2.16 fixed the problem.

hth,

I see that this addition was made yesterday....

Tue Aug 17 20:08:40 UTC 2021
l/python2-module-collection-2.7.18-x86_64-5.txz: Rebuilt.
Added dbus-python-1.2.16.

So, I'll do this upgrade to see if that addition fixed the problem I had with WiFi

[ upgrade ] - dbus-python-1.2.16-x86_64-4 --> dbus-python-1.2.18-x86_64-1

I too am good-to-go with working WiFi after upgrading... dbus-python-1.2.16-x86_64-4 --> dbus-python-1.2.18-x86_64-1

So, looks like the addition of dbus-python-1.2.16 into python2-module-collection-2.7.18-x86_64-5.txz fixed the issue(s).

But, just in case... will keep this on-hand because the ones @ http://slackware.uk/absolute/ are now gone.;-)
