Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

I checked for those directories and contents – I only have the second directory (/usr/local/Brother/Printer/DCP7065DN/cupswrapper/) and what's in there is brcupsconfig4 (an executable), and cupswrapperDCP7065DN-2.0.4 ( a shell script). Probably did this wrong, but I got: cupswrapper # bash brcupscon...

Re: Long pause at 'Waiting for uevents to be processed' [Sol

Sorry to be a while in reporting back, but I've been focused on another issue, and took a break to revisit this one. I thought ny issue seemed very similar to yours, kwacorn, and it was - exactly the same. Blacklisting wl in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and rebooting eliminated the long udev pause...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

Yes Fitzcarraldo, the cupswrapper output resolved in the same way - it looked fine, too. So, I ran your new commands and they did seem to have more effect: # cd /usr/local/portage/net-print/brother-cupswrapper/ zenboy brother-cupswrapper # USE="mfcj415w" ebuild brother-cupswrapper-20120123.ebuild ma...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

Closer, I think. I edited the two ebuild files, using RESTRICT="strip", and got a search for files, and after 404 timing out at about nine gentoo/distfiles addresses it appears that it finally made it to the Brother url (edited quite a bit to avoid redundancy): Unfortunately the add-on to the ebuild...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

Thanks for the 'dot' clarification, Fitzcarraldo, good to know more shortcuts. I downloaded both of the .deb archives for my DCP7065DN from the Brother drivers page, and copied them (still compressed, not extracted) from Desktop to usr/portage/distfiles/, thusly: zenboy Desktop # cp cupswrapperDCP70...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

Fitzcarraldo, this looks very promising, and my DCP-7065DN is in the list! I did all the new synching with the split overlays and git (thanks for those tips for getting the newer split ones), modified /etc/make.conf, made the dirs, and fixed the nag. I saved the ebuild's code as text docs (is that r...

Re: Long pause at 'Waiting for uevents to be processed', etc

Heh. Me, too, apparently, and for some time now as well, since some update. I ignored it and just went wired, but... # lspci | grep `lspci -n | grep -i 14e4:4311 | awk '{print $1}'` 03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 01) ... I guess I'll need to address that...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

Hmmm, I looked for kprinter, but fear it may have been removed from kde, at least I can't find it. If it has now become the Printer Configuration button in System Settings, for some reason that's not working - it is still freezing my System Settings window when I click on it. However, I am now getti...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

I, too, am having some Brother issue I can't sort out. This post is a bit wordy, but I'm trying to get you all the data I have so far. I've read all of this thread, and am using the rpm files downloaded from Brother's site for a DCP-7065DN. I followed the entropy version of the Brother wiki page, an...

Re: "Connection auto eth0 failed" Issue - Network Manager

Quick addition:

an HP repair manual lists the actual Ethernet card as

Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC

...if that helps any. :)
