Wifi not working after building customized image


  • administrators

    Only the binary is available for this mt76x8 driver and it is actually compiled for 4.4.46 Kernel version. On the current firmware (b160), the mt76x8 is located under the /lib/modules/4.4.46.

    As you can see in the package makefile the install deirectory is based on $(LINUX_VERSION) variable. I would suggest trying your luck with modifying this installation path.

    I don't know about anyone else, but when I try and incorporate this 4.4.46 binary into a new kernel compilation, I can't get past the kernel bug that results:

    Are you at Onion able to get past this problem in your build environment?
    If you are, I would sure like some pointers on how you are doing it.



  • @cas If you look at https://github.com/OnionIoT/source, you can read in the description:

    "Due to incompatibilities with recent kernel updates, building a firmware with the Ralink APSoC WiFi SoftAP driver will cause a kernel panic during boot".

    The official firmware runs on 4.4.46 and I bet that reason for that is WiFi kernel module. You can try to go back with LEDE to 4.4.46 or try to use open source driver (mt76?). I'd rather recommend going with closed source driver (open source driver seems to be buggy). To be precise, you can take a look on commits to kernel-version.mk (https://github.com/OnionIoT/source/commits/lede-17.01/include/kernel-version.mk). The 4.4.46 was introduced with b786a5ffc39539d55cf74ebd43edde9051b4682d (https://github.com/OnionIoT/source/commit/b786a5ffc39539d55cf74ebd43edde9051b4682d#diff-9e2e0c0e43d2d4ab7bf91e5fdd11cf2a). However, I didn't build this kernel yet so I am not sure if you will face other problems.

    I'm curious as to whether the OP @aobs has achieved any success with this?
    And same for @Pavel-Metrokhin & @onion



  • According to Onion, they will roll out a new WiFi driver in April.



  • @aobs said on 27 Mar 2018, 06:50

    According to Onion, they will roll out a new WiFi driver in April.

    Really?
    For Omega2(+)? But in which year / decade / century / ... ? ;-)
    Please let us know, where did you read this?



  • Next month. From their staff by email directly. At least, this is what they told me.



  • They are indeed very close (15h ago):
    https://github.com/OnionIoT/OpenWRT-Packages/commit/1b4280a7b51bc835de22288edd142dfaf7084c2c

    @EDIT
    Actually, they are done with it:

    @Maximilian-Gerhardt said in Omega2 current defects:

    OnionIoT has released a new firmware version b176 in https://onion.io/2bt-march-27-2018/ in which it is stated that:

    • a new WiFi driver "WiFi Warp Core" has been released, which fixes problems with:
      • general WiFi performance
      • Automatic Network Switching
      • Automatic Network Encryption Detection in wifisetup
      • Support for Hidden SSIDs
    • SPI Improvements
      • maximum transfer sizes increased to 4096 bytes
      • MSB corruption fixed for "some" devices ("We’ve observed that some SPI devices still show data corruption but others do not")
      • new python-spidev package for writing user-space programs with SPI (apparently different from old pyOnionSpi)

    Will re-test and recompile older programs to see how much it improved. Main post updated.





  • hi,

    I just build my own firmware and wifi is working !

    ( I just have to manually select Coreutils to make the wifi drivers appears in onion/wifi )



  • Hi Stephane
    can you explain your steps to succeed your image.



  • @Stephane-Foloppe
    hello stephane , could you please write a brief explanation on how you build your image ?



  • @Stephane-Foloppe hi, I'm trying to build my own image (from https://github.com/OnionIoT/source) with wifi-warp-core.

    I simply copied the folder wifi-warp-core from https://github.com/OnionIoT/OpenWRT-Packages to source/package/onion.

    After doing this, Onion > WiFi > wifi-warp-core* appears in menuconfig, but when I enable it I get the following error:

     Collected errors:
     * satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for wifi-warp-core:
     * 	coreutils-base64 * 
     * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package wifi-warp-core.
    package/Makefile:60: recipe for target 'package/install' failed
    

    I tried enabling coreutils-base64 by enabling Base system > busybox > Coreutils (after enabling Customize busybox options) > base64 in menuconfig but nothing changed...

    Could anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?



  • Re: Wifi not working after building customized image

    I have successfully built the customised image. The steps are pretty straight forward. I am using Docker on my MAC. Just follow the steps on Cross-Compiling C & C++ Programs: Part 1 - Setting Up the Build System to pull the latest source from the repository. If you do not have Docker, just follow the steps to install & set up Docker and create a container.

    Run the image. After the container is up, you should be at ~/source. If not, just ensure you are at ~/source.

    Run

     make menuconfig
    

    Select Onion -> WiFi, you should see "wifi-warp-core" there.

    It should be automatically selected already. If it is not, just click "Y" to include this in the kernel.

    If you need other libraries, drivers, modules, etc., just select those in the config menu.

    There is a problem with compiling mosquito if libwebsockets is selected under Libraries, I disable

     Network -> mosquito-ssl -> libwebsocket support
    

    Save & Exit the config menu.

    Usually, I will run

     scripts/feeds update -a
    

    If the packages I require are not there, I run

     scripts/feeds install package_name
    

    To compile the customised image, run

     make V=s
    

    If you encounter a problem with compiling MicroPython and you are not using it, just unselect it in the config menu.



  • @Caio-Mehlem Perhaps you are using the wrong tree. Try https://github.com/OnionIoT/source/tree/lede-17.01. "wifi-warp-core" should be in the config menu.



  • @aobs , I was in the lede-17.01 branch, but I stupidly did not run the feed scripts... (I'm new to OpenWRT/LEDE/Buildroot so I'm still figuring out how things work).

    I can now build the image correctly with wifi-warp-core, but only by cloning the repo @ https://github.com/OnionIoT/source (commit 564089f624f1eb47c20d1f4f8766f2383ce32ef9).

    The Docker image is out of date AND did not compile correctly for me.
    For some reason I had to manually change PKG_SOURCE_URL in libsoxr from git://git.code.sf.net/p/soxr/code to https//git.code.sf.net/p/soxr/code because git clone was failing! I'm running the compilation again but it didn't finish yet.

    The image built without docker boots fine and connects to WiFi using wifi-warp-core (by entering WiFi info manually with wifisetup and selecting Type network info), but I still have the following problems:

    • hostname is Omega-0000, not sure how to make it use the MAC address as in the official build
    • Running wifisetup and trying to "Scan for Wifi networks" fails:

    Anyone has ideas why I'm getting these problems?

    Thank you!!



  • @Caio-Mehlem Try to use the packages in your image directories. My packages are under ~/source/bin/packages/mipsel_24kc & ~/source/bin/targets/ramips/mt7688/packages. Copy the packages you need to your Omega2 and install them with opkg.

    Please check New omega2 boots with Omega-0000 AP and wont let me connect and see whether this can fix your problem.



  • @aobs I'm quite new to Linux development and buildsystems, so sorry for the stupid questions... I realized there is a script to set the hostname which was not selected.

    For the rest, I built a new image with a custom configuration loosely based on the one found at the Docker image (since copying the docker .config and running make oldconfig didn't work) and now everything seems to be working.

    I still don't understand why Onion doesn't keep their official configuration at the repo's .config, it would make customization a lot easier since we could start from the official build and add/remove what we needed.


  • administrators

    We do keep our official configuration in the .config file on Github.
    However, when you run:

    ./scripts/feeds update -a
    ./scripts/feeds install -a
    

    This will actually overwrite the .config and clear our settings.

    My advice would be to run git checkout .config after running the feeds script, and you'll get all of our settings.



  • @Lazar-Demin Sorry, my mistake! Thank you for clarifying this! Can you confirm that building this will result in the exact same image provided @ http://repo.onion.io/omega2/images/ ?

    Thanks!
