oops, I forgot Juanito does not like the name 8188eu which is the actual kernel module name.
I will call the TCE rtl8188eu.

I think I will attempt to add more modules in it, with appropriate attritubution so members do not have a dep file,
but choose wifi or some other wireless TCEs

thanks for reading

@nick65go
Thanks for correct me with my spelling :)
I am not the best English writer, but better in talking it.
I am so stubborn that time is not a factor. :)
I don't give up in the first place, if I meet resistance, I put the project down for a while, to pick it up again later. I have to take a little break now and then, to let my thoughts go in other directions.

@aus9
I am happy for you that you also stubborn and don't let the problem not be fighted. And meanwhile you learning things you have never know, like using qemu in some problems/project, if you went that route.

Hi patrikg

sorry if I did not make it obvious before, will fix in build script but post 36 mentions qemu was where I attempted to modprobe etc

Yes I used your qemu method and it works. I just did not want to package until I was on actual (real hardware not emulated) to package.
So far I have only done a direct injection for the module I built in qemu. Not yet packaged which I hope to build soon.

thanks again for suggestion, I accept all compliments  ;D

good.

As prev suggested, if you are rarely going to use ethernet....I would suggest you add a blacklist=<modulename> to your bootloader.

inxi -Nxxx reveals the kernel module
dmesg should but for me its revealed towards the tail so
Code: [Select]
dmesg | grep eth0  does too

2) In the meantime you can reply and ask Rich to mark as solved please

Hi

I forgot to mention that if you want this TCE to be able to be booted, it needs to be in your tcedir. So move it there please.

There will always be some TCEs that are private and meant to be private. Example getlocale generates mylocale.tcz
Apps -> Maintenance -> Onboot Maintenance will show mylocale.tcz on the left until you click it and add it to your current boot list.

so for OP once you add it to your tcedir....do above and add it AND wifi.tcz

correction getlocale puts mylocale into tcedir for you.

Anyhow, whatever packages showup on the left can be included on the right for whatever your boot list is
Apps is smart enough to only edit your current list in case you are not using onboot.lst
