Hi remus
You can find  setterm  in  util-linux.tcz.
Off-Topic - Tiny Tux's Corner / gdrive error when executed as cron job
« Last post by remus on May 24, 2018, 06:43:11 PM »
Hi all,

I use gdrive + cron to automate backups from a server to a google drive account.

When running drive manually from the command line it works fine every time.

When running drive as part of a shell script I get frequent failures to upload.

The error
Failed to upload file: googleapi: Error 403: Rate Limit Excee
ded, rateLimitExceeded

There's a patch I can work into the source and recomile as soon as I get some time.

A discussion about the error here seems to make more sense to me though.

Does anyone know how I introduce a slight delay in the cron to level out the API workload ?

Thanks for any comments and suggestions :)

See man setterm

Feed back much appreciated curaga.

My results with setterm experiments from the command line

Code: [Select]
$ setterm
-sh: setterm: not found

Perhaps its a part of a tcz package.

I'll have to learn how to use appbrowser to search the tcz's for it.
Raspberry Pi / Bluetooth PAN on rpi0W and piCore 9.0.3
« Last post by gjm on May 24, 2018, 11:54:53 AM »
Hi all,

I've been trying to setup Bluetooth on a rpi0W following various posts on here, but all seem to relate either to piCore 8.x.x and/or rpi3 so I'm really struggling to get it all working as I can't. 

Ultimately I'd like to be able to set up the rpi0W as a PAN (either GN or NAP) so that clients can access HTML files from an HTTPD running on the rpi0W but would be happy just to get the Bluetooth working in any capacity.

Device: rpi0W
OS: piCore 9.0.3

Other forum threads talk about tce firmware-rpi3-bt and bluez but I can't find anything in the TCZ's other than bluetooth-4.9.22-piCore.

Any help gratefully received.

I'm getting a /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf created, but the key in it is half a mile lone! The original key is also there, commented out with a #. It doesn't connect to the network.

Hi MagicMatt
Yes, that looks like the correct format.

I've obviously misunderstood somewhere along the line, as I thought "tce-load -i" added them to boot, but it doesn't.
I've added the following to my /mnt/mmvblk0p2/tce/onboot.lst
Code: [Select]

I have a Realtek RTL8188CU dongle, so hopefully that's the right tcz for it.

Making ~/wifi.db manually didn't work, but I think maybe I have the formatting wrong.

Assuming my network router shows as "TellMyWiFiLoveHer" and the password is "KissyKissy", is it...
TellMyWiFiLoveHer <TAB> KissyKissy <TAB> WPA"  ?

Hi MagicMatt
You might also need one of the firmware extensions for your WiFi dongle. If you post the make and model of your dongle
someone on this forum might be able to offer some further advice.

You could try creating  ~/wifi.db  manually ...
Code: [Select]
echo "*YOUR_WIFI_ACCESS_POINT*    *YOUR_SSID*    WPA" > ~/wifi.db
then add the following to  /opt/bootlocal.sh ...
Code: [Select]
wifi.sh -a &
then do a backup
Code: [Select]
filetool.sh -b
and finally reboot with your wifi dongle attached.
