Is that the only file in /lib/firmware/rtlwifi?  There should be 4 rtl8192* files as well (and it should also have put RTL8192SU, RTL8192E and rtl_nic directories under /lib/firmware too).

However, the relevant thing is whether you end up with a wlan0 device.  I presume that ifconfig isn't showing anything (and that is what you mean when you say "but still no wlan of any flavor")?

What kernel are you using?  I have a dual-band Buffallo Wireless-N Nfiniti running on mine, and that needed a 3.x kernel to get it going (so I run the cbxbiker61 kernels).  That also needed a firmware file (rt2870.bin, but I had to get the one from the kernel git download last October to get that running).

So wlan0 is nowhere - don't know where to go from here?
You need to install the relevant firmware file.  Which (judging by what I have on my mandriva2011 system) will be:
   /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8192cufw.bin
Now, as to where you can get the firmware files - it's in the firmware-realtek package, so:
   apt-get install firmware-realtek
should get it.
If not, the actual deb file is at:
 ftp://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/pool/non-free/f/firmware-nonfree/firmware-realtek_0.36_all.deb

I checked and found that there is no automount:
There is no automount.
But you do have a mechanism in place which is mounting devices as you plug them in.  This will be something to do with udev and/or hal.

Unlocking the disk /dev/disk/by-uuid/c34f5d53-8365-469a-aeb0-eb840ac0cc56 (sda2_crypt)
Enter passphrase:
cryptsetup: sda2_crypt set up successfully
...
mount: mounting /dev/sda2 on /root failed: No such device
Wild guess here (since I've never used encrypted fs)
Should that root device be /dev/sda2_crypt, rather than /dev/sda2?

According to the Packages file for wheezy, initscripts breaks versions < 1:0.7.3-3.
But don't ask me for anything beyond that....
36  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: problems mounting external USB hard drives on: May 27, 2012, 04:17:09 PM
Hello,
I have a sheevaplug running Debian (2.6.32-5-kirkwood) on an SD card. Everything is running smoothly except that I cannot mount external USB drives.
So how long have you been in this state?
If it has just started, what did you do just before that?
37  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Re: Debian Lenny unavailable on: April 05, 2012, 01:29:07 PM
squeeze is the stable version now.

This is from the README file at http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/dists/

stable, or squeeze         - the released Debian 6.0.4

 cron jobs and start-up scripts aren't going to show anything.  They are static scripts.

You need to look at the system log files - the things in /var/log, especially the messages file.

If there is a serious error on a file-system the OS will switch it to read-only to prevent any further damage.  So look for file-system errors on the relevant file-system or hardware errors on the device.

Thanks for the references, sorry to say they were not much help.
Really?
From what I could see the .ndo_set_multicast_list field was just renamed to .ndo_set_rx_mode. That seems to be all that the second link did.  The first link renamed the callback function too (but left the code within it the same).
Just a rename was all that was done here too.

Hmmm...something went weird when I put those two links in (looks like I quoted them when I shouldn't).
Trying again:

wctc4xxp: Replace 'ndo_set_multicast_list' with 'set_rx_mode'

and another one.
41  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Help from Marvell on: February 13, 2012, 04:16:47 PM
If it's any help, here's a github change that someone else has done as a result of it (I think...)

wctc4xxp: Replace 'ndo_set_multicast_list' with 'set_rx_mode'
and another one

It's an AG10.  So I'll look for a local supplier tomorrow.
And then take another 4 days to install it.
But many thanks - the hardware clock is now working again!
PS: The battery size is also a 389 or SR54 (amongst many others, but the numbers seem to be the same - the packaging on mine says SR54, the battery itself says 389).

The *.config files (which were present in your previous kennel builds) are not there.
They are.
Yes - they are there now.
But they aren't there for 3.2.5.

Thanks.  I'll give that a go.

Minor problem at first as:
  • I couldn't get one the case apart (one of the screws was locked in place, but eventually I won).
  • I have a Rev1.3 motherboard, which looks different and doesn't have the big silver button form the middle of the image.  Then I realized that's not the battery....

It's an AG10.  So I'll look for a local supplier tomorrow.
