Omega Onion 2 pro SSID Issues after flashing custom image
After flashing a custom image or at least I think I successfully flashed the custom image (not sure how to check since I cannot ssh into the Onion Omega 2 pro), the onion omega 2 pro no longer broadcasts an SSID to connect to.
Any thoughts on how to approach this?
@Antony My guess is that your firmware does not include the Warp Core drivers or configuration but I can only guess as you have not provided much information How to Ask for Help
I installed the Warp Core drivers using:
./scripts/feeds install wifi-warp-core, but it did not seem to resolve the issue.
I am customizing the image using the latest git repo: https://github.com/OnionIoT/source/tree/openwrt-18.06 and following the instructions provided in the README section.
After downloading this repository I am changing the rc.local file and adding two scripts to the root directory.
@Antony ./scripts/feeds install wifi-warp-core only makes the driver available when you run make menuconfig you still need to select warp core for it to be included in the build.
Thanks @crispyoz !
In the make menuconfig, I searched through all the folders for this and could not find wifi-warp-core. Does wifi-warp-core just extract all different kinds of wireless drivers for one to choose from, because I found many different versions of wireless drivers.
@Antony you an always use / to search inside make menuconfig, the warp core option is inside Onion->WiFi
An easy way to reset your configuration is follow these steps:
ln -s .config.O2 .config
This resets back to the standard Omega2 configuration.
You'll also need to make sure the Onion package repo is in your
Thanks, I will try this.
I was able to serially connect to this created image and I see the following where there are no characters after the dash in Omega-.
Is this related?
@Antony We use a uci-defaults script to set the hostname based on the mac address
See it here: https://github.com/OnionIoT/source/blob/openwrt-18.06/files/etc/uci-defaults/13_hostname
I am still running into the built omega2pro image failing to broadcast an SSID.
I am unable to ssh into the omega onion pro2 after flashing with built image so instead I connect serially.
Using PUTTY I typed wifi in the terminal prompt and its says the following:
radio0(ralink): Interface type not supported
Is this the reason why there is no SSID being broadcasted?
@Antony Judging by the
radio0(ralink): Interface type not supportedmessage and your previous posts in this thread, I'm guessing the wifi driver isn't installed.
You can check by running
opkg list-installed | grep wifion the device. If nothing shows up, then the wifi driver isn't installed.
If you can't find the wifi driver in the menuconfig, then there's probably something up with your build system.
Try doing Step 4 from the following link to update and set up your package feeds correctly: https://github.com/OnionIoT/source#option-a-using-the-docker-image
(Then consider setting up the the minimal build configuration to reduce your compile time: https://github.com/OnionIoT/source#reducing-compile-time-with-the-minimal-build-configuration)
Now try looking for wifi-warp-core in menuconfig
In the make menuconfig, I have wifi-warp-core to be included in the build.
opkg list-installed | grep wifi
on the device and it appears that the driver is in fact not installed. I tried the steps suggested and that didn't seem to fix the issue.
