New OS Release!

  • administrators

    Hi everyone, v0.2.0 of the Omega OS is here! Lot's of goodies and updates on many fronts.

    See the blog post for more details!

  • i've tried the oupgrade twice and neither one worked. it goes through the download and certainly looks like it is working but then omega2+ just blinks for 40 min each time, btw running very hot, and then i just reboot and when it comes back up it shows a new b160 installed. i guess i'm gonna try a sysupgrade later.
    edit: i tried a different omega2+ and the oupgrade routine worked well as did the overall installation.

  • First attempt at installing has turned into a dismal failure. All worked fine up until I started creating overlay SD card then it stopped connecting to wifi after a reboot. Tried reinstall from scratch but now it won't connect to wifi at all and i can't revert to 0.160. Have noted that on reboot /etc/config/wireless loses the wifisetup and everytime I connect to the AP putty says it has a new certificate. ifconfig says:

    apcli0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 40:A3:6B:C1:C8:88
    inet6 addr: fe80::42a3:6bff:fec1:c888/64 Scope:Link
    RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

    On other devices running 0.160 there is an IP address from my router:
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:

    Also worth noting is that the mac address in aplci0 is C8:88 whilst the chip is labeled as C8:87. This has also changed since.

    I am now stuck with no wifi - what has changed? what am I missing?

    UPDATE: Completed my SD card installation with python, mysql etc using an ethernet board - wireless came back online after a couple of reboots and remained stable for about 30 minutes then a subsequent reboot reset the wireless conf file again

    A small note:

    To successfully run the oupgrade command, you must connect to the Omega's command line with SSH or via Serial. The command will not work from the Terminal app on the Console.

    @Douglas-Kryder When you try with sysupgrade, for best results I would suggest adding the -n option. This will reset the Omega to the default settings as dictated by the new OS, should make for an easier install.

    Regarding the MAC address, yep there have been some changes:

    • The MAC address of the wireless interface used to host the Omega's AP network will match that written on the label
    • The MAC address of the wireless interface used to connect to other networks will be the MAC address on the label +1

    As for the wireless config file reset, on the very first boot, the new OS will look for traces of the old wireless configuration, and if found, will reset the config.
    It's possible that you still have programs installed that write old wireless configuration, try running the following:

    opkg update
    opkg remove wifi-manager
    opkg upgrade onion-console-base

  • @Lazar-Demin Hello. How to verify that new OS is installed into our omega.

  • @Swapnil-Katpally It tells you so in the bootup banner. Do cat /etc/banner.

  • Ok so I flashed this to my OO2P and as I had nothing to lose also factory reset it with firstboot -y

    So I was a little surprised when I say a segfault on restart to do with the SPI driver.

    I was also surprised when the promised better performing 'Warp Core' driver did not seem connect to any of my networks. In fact it kept on saying it connected but there was no internet. A blatant falsehood given that my laptop I was using to login via the Serial console was working fine on the same access points.

    Anyway of debugging what is going on? If i cannot connect to wifi then not sure how I will ever fix a problem on it again.

  • ERROR: Could not connect to Onion Firmware Server! Check your internet connection and try again!

    Connected via serial or SSH.
    Definitely have internet connection, can perform update, upgrade, install.
    Possibly issue in connecting with Firmware Server, will try again later.

  • Had to do manual download and install.
    link text

  • Installed new firmware omega2p-v0.2.0-b176.bin on 2+.
    Discovers WiFi but will not connect?

  • wifisetup not working?

    root@Omega-35EB:~# wifisetup
    Onion Omega Wifi Setup

    Select from the following:

    1. Scan for Wifi networks
    2. Type network info
      q) Exit

    Selection: sh: 1: unknown operand
    sh: 2: unknown operand

    I'm relatively new to this, but what is going on?

  • @John_L You should simply hit the 1 (or the 2) key.
    It seems you typed the sh: 1 (or the sh: 2) text instead.

  • @John_L

    I noticed in my one the wifisetup script used uci set wireless.radio0.. when of course the device is actuall ra0 now.

    That fixed that problem.. but still cannot get it to connect to any of my wifi AP's,


  • @György-Farkas said in New OS Release!:

    (It seems you typed the sh: 1 (or the sh: 2) text instead.

    NO, I only typed wifisetup and return and was not given a chance to enter selection, rest of output was generated by Omega.

  • @T-NT said in New OS Release!:

    I noticed in my one the wifisetup script used uci set wireless.radio0.. when of course the device is actuall ra0 now.

    But if you look at wireless script in /etc/config , option device is 'radio0' for both ap and sta interface. AP interface seems to work as I can connect and log onto Omega WiFi directly.
    But I can't get STA interface to work to connect to my WiFi router AP?

    In quick start web interface setup, Omega scans and detects my external WiFi router and AP's , but will not connect?

    Then tried terminal wifisetup and will not let me make menu selection, see previous post.

    Looks like I'm not alone with WiFi connection issue?????

  • administrators

    @Brian-Kaisner installation of the new OS will wipe the previous wireless configuration,
    please try running wifisetup and configuring your Omega to connect to your network

    @T-NT regarding SPI, it's not a segfault, rather a very loud complaint, see this for more details:

    Can you post the output of uci show wireless, ifconfig, and iwconfig? That will give some more insight into what's going on.

    @John_L What you're describing is symptomatic of still having the older wifi programs but the new driver. I would say your best bet forward is to back-up anything you don't want to lose from that Omega to a USB and perform a factory reset.
    This will setup your Omega with only the b176 files and you should be good to go. Let me know how it goes!

  • Thanks Lazar,
    No problem, will try factory reset, have over 50 omega 2+ to play with.
    Will let you know how it goes.

  • OK, sorted out wifisetup. Was using TeraTerm terminal on Win-7 and had CR+LF set as Return/Enter. Fixed by deleting LF and only sends CR after Return/Enter key.

    Still no joy in connecting to my local WiFi router that works with previous firmware version.
    Have tried Factory Reset on previously used Omega 2+ and number of new units with previous fresh firmware out of the box.

    Anyway new firmware flashed is omega2p-v0.2.0-b176.bin. Not sure if this is region dependent regarding WiFi channels, I am in Australia?

    After scanning and selecting local WiFi without encryption for this exercise. this is the listing of wireless file in /etc/config

    config wifi-device 'radio0'
    option type 'ralink'
    option variant 'mt7628'
    option country 'US'
    option hwmode '11g'
    option htmode 'HT40'
    option channel 'auto'
    option disabled '0'
    option device_mode 'apsta'
    option op_mode 'preference'

    config wifi-iface 'ap'
    option device 'radio0'
    option mode 'ap'
    option network 'wlan'
    option ifname 'ra0'
    option encryption 'psk2'
    option key '12345678'
    option disabled '0'
    option ssid 'Omega-C0B5'

    config wifi-iface 'sta'
    option device 'radio0'
    option mode 'sta'
    option ifname 'apcli0'
    option encryption 'psk2'
    option ssid 'YourSsidHere'
    option key 'YourPasswordHere'
    option network 'wwan'
    option disabled '0'

    config wifi-config
    option key 'none'
    option ssid 'RR2'
    option encryption 'none'

    config wifi-config is added to the bottom of the script file as above with correct WiFi ssid and no encryption.
    Not sure if config wifi-iface 'sta' should have been filled in with my WiFi setting, it is in fact unchanged from factory reset?

    Below is the output after running wifi command.
