I had thought that a change in upper panel icons was my unique problem when I wrote,
I wrote:Instead of the usual internet icon in the upper right panel, I now have two icons, sort of rectangles. The one on the right has internets speed as kb/s by it. Clicking on it shows only the enP4096p4s4: 192... stuff and in: and out: speeds.
but I was surprised today to see the same icons in Christian's first screenshot of Fienix 2020-01 posted New Year's morning.

Apparently one of those sort-of-rectangles was added to the left of the old World internet icon with kernel 5.5. By the time of 5.5.0-rc4 the world was replaced with another rectangle, making two rectangles. Noticing only one rectangle in Casey's screen dump, I wondered if one of them might be wi-fi related, so I rebooted without my wi-fi dongle, but I still got both "rectangles," but the left one showed no wi-fi sources until I plugged the dongle back in. I still think not being able to connect with my usual wi-fi source represents a problem that might be fixable. What makes this really puzzling is the fact that when I click on that left icon, it shows a list of five wi-fi sites, and clicking on any of them except the one I know the password for brings up the password requester immediately! Any clues here?

Code: Select all

[ 2563.726513] rtl8192cu: MAC auto ON okay!
[ 2563.759622] rtl8192cu: Tx queue select: 0x05

Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0bda:8176 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188CUS 802.11n WLAN Adapter
Now I wonder whether my "A start job is running for Raise network interfaces" problem was introduced to everyone with Kernel 5.5 and everyone else just ignores it?

The first rectangle is the NetworkManager-Applet and second one is the MATE Netspeed applet.

Fienix updates for SpiderWeb and Arctic Fox are in the repository. Several cool new games, too - check them out!

Contrast - a 2D puzzle platformer
The Desert and the Sea - a 3D exploration puzzle game that sort of reminds me of a 3D version of Myst (glitchy loading window but the game plays perfectly)
Force: Leashed - a 3D puzzle chamber game that reminds me of Portal (unfortunately I had to disable sound, but it is very fun and playable without it)
Otherworlder - a turn-based strategy puzzle game

I didn't notice at the time, but I guess I was in the mood for puzzle games last night!

Yes, the first rectangle produces the same sort of little window as clicking on the up-and-down arrows in Ubuntu. With one major difference: If I click on my wi-fi name in Ubuntu, it asks me for a password and then connects. In Fienix it is the only wi-fi name listed that clicking on does not bring up a password requester, and leaves me with no wi-fi.

My FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick N doesn't work with the new image.

Error messages:

I solved this with installing the package "firmware-ralink". :-)

Code: Select all

apt-get install firmware-ralink
It works again. Sorry to have bothered you. :-)

I had to install some new packages for Bluetooth:

dpkg -i gir1.2-nm-1.0_1.20.6-1_powerpc.deb (from the Debian ports repository)

dpkg -i libnm0_1.20.6-1_powerpc.deb (from the Debian ports repository)

dpkg -i network-manager_1.20.6-1_powerpc.deb (from the Debian ports repository)

dpkg -i libsbc1_1.4-1_powerpc.deb (from the Debian ports repository)

dpkg -i pulseaudio-module-bluetooth_13.0-3_powerpc.deb (from the Debian ports repository)

apt-get install blueman

Hi Casey,

Arctic Fox 27.9.19, SpiderWeb 2.2.0, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth work without any problems on Fienix. :-)

Screenshots:

Could you please add the following packages to the Fienix boot image?

Absolutely! Thanks for working that out and letting me know! I don't use Wi-Fi or Bluetooth on my machine so it's difficult to troubleshoot these issues for me.

Hi Kilaueabart,

Sorry for my late answer. Did you install the firmware for your Realtek RTL8188CUS WLAN adapter?

If not, please download the following firmware package and install it with "dpkg -i" as root.

Download: firmware-realtek_20190717-2_all.deb

Then reboot your X5000 and try it again.

Thanks,
Christian
