HP-2000 Ralink RT5390R Wireless Adapter
« on: June 20, 2019, 02:20:52 PM »
I have downloaded TinyCorePlus to a USB stick and can succesfully boot to any of the flavors I choose from the boot menu.

I have connected to a wired lan in order to figure out the wireless networking, which as the subject would indicate

I have booted into the base FLWM option then loaded the following:
pci-utils, ntpclient, dillo,firmware-ralinkwifi,wifi.tcz

This is the full output of dmesg after booting (and connecting a usb mouse)

https://pastebin.com/3uvVY7CU

Hi  mnemonic76

Please post the output of dmesg | tail -50  after attempting to connect

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ dmesg | tail -50
The device is most likely supported by the rt2800pci module and ralinkwifi firmware, but first lets see the dmesg output


Please note that the output is easier to read when enclosed with [ code ] tags

Hi coreplayer2
I didn't see any mention of the wireless adapter in the pastebin link that mnemonic76 posted. I did notice this entry:
Code: [Select]
input: HP Wireless hotkeys as /devices/virtual/input/input12I wonder if the wireless adapter is disabled, possibly in the BIOS.

Rich,  Having looked at the link I also noticed the CDE bootcode on a USB installation !!  Maybe that’s expected if booting from the iso directly.  I didn’t read it that way though


You’re right there does not appear to be any mention of the WiFi adapter in dmesg

Thanks for the help guys.
So I checked BIOS and didn't find anything related to disabling wireless, however this keyboard has an F12 key with a wifi symbol and a smal LED indicator on it. I suspect tinycore knows nothing about the key... i pressed it, presed fn+F12, alt+fn+F12 etc... did nothing. if I run sudo rfkill list all it returns nothing...

So in the above response from coreplayer2 : "Please post the output of dmesg | tail -50  after attempting to connect"

I am guessing you mean after running sudo wifi.sh?

BTW, I INSTALLED to another USB instead of a live USB, that was so much easier than I thought! TinyCore is so cool... just wish my hardware was easier! -I digress.

So, since I changed to a INSTALLED usb (using tc-install) with a persistent /tc I am reposting the entirety of dmesg prior to running any commands:

Here is the pastebin:
https://pastebin.com/m38NisV3

Then, finally what you requested:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ sudo wifi.sh
No wifi devices found!

then:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ dmesg | tail -50

This means your hardware is searching for firmware:
Code: [Select]
r8169 0000:02:00.0: Direct firmware load for rtl_nic/rtl8105e-1.fw failed with error -2
r8169 0000:02:00.0: Falling back to syfs fallback for: rtl_nic/rtl8105e-1.fw
r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: unable to load firmware patch rtl_nic/rtl8105e-1.fw (-11)
..that firmware is in the firmware-rtl_nic extension, but I think it is only for wired network hardware.

In any case it will not hurt to try it - before loading any other extensions.

Ok, so I saw that too... however I am connected via the wired connection.. I think the next lines that say eth0 up or whatever proves that...

So when you say "In any case it will not hurt to try it - before loading any other extensions." I dont know what you mean exactly...

I am not a power user, and I am really confused by the kernel modules and firmware stuff... I have been playing around with Linux for many years, but have never really understood some of the fundamentals of how the kernel interacts with the hardware. I have learned a little about filesystems and higher level stuff, but am a total newbie with the hardware stuff....

So out of desparation I tested a couple other USB distros I had lying around. Xubuntu 16.04.3 and Lubuntu 16.04..

I am writing this post from Lubuntu live USB. This is the result of uname -r:

lubuntu@lubuntu:~$ uname -r
4.8.0-36-generic

And the wifi is seeing APs and the F12 key seems to work... would there be any value in me posting outputs from this distro?

Thanks,

Yes there would. The  dmesg  result would be useful. Also, the result of this command:

lsmod

Hi mnemonic76
Please use  Code Tags  when posting commands and responses seen in a terminal. To use  Code Tags  click on the  #  icon
above the reply box and paste your text between the  Code Tags  as shown in this example:

Please note that  Code Tags  don't actually have a space between the  e  and  ]  characters. This was done here so that they
would be visible rather than executed by the browser.

Code Tags  serve as visual markers between what you are trying to say and the information you are posting. They also preserve

Hi mnemonic76
The  dmesg  link shows  rt2860.bin  being loaded which is provided by  firmware-ralinkwifi.tcz,  so install that too.

First of all, thanks for the tip on the code tag... I am on dillo when I am in tinycore and the forum interface is super basic... so here goes...

I used the App browser and selected the firmware-ralinkwifi.tcz and wireless-4.19.10-tinycore.tcz extentions set for "OnBoot" that seemed to work for the Dillo extention... here is what I get:

Code: [Select]

What is a concern for me is why isn’t the wireless* extension being loaded as it’s a dep of  WiFi.tcz

Also, it’s better to load the firmware extension before the wifi and all it’s dependencies. This way the driver will find it’s firmware. 

BTW,  “F12” key is often used as a Wifi hardware switch

When enabling the wifi hardware using F12 the best place to observe results is dmesg
