Thanks Paul, it is an upstream issue, not our :)

Tried wifi stuff on Pi3 again
Got beta3, wrote it to USB.
Used gparted to increase the 12MB second partition up to 40MB.
Booted it, waited for ssh key stuff, opensshed in and ran this
tce-load -wi firmware-brcmfmac43430.tcz
filetool.sh -b
rebooted then tried to install wifi.tcz

Code: [Select]
tce-load -wi wifi.tcz
wifi.tcz.dep OK
wireless_tools.tcz.dep OK
wpa_supplicant.tcz.dep OK

then this again
tce-load -wi wifi.tcz
........
wifi.tcz: OK

Much better now

Pi 3 wireless working.

sudo iw wlan0 scan  reports stuff

Not exactly sure what did it, tried lots of stuff
http://askubuntu.com/questions/138472/how-do-i-connect-to-a-wpa-wifi-network-using-the-command-line

Something to do with wpa.conf or wpa_supplicant

I didn't have problems

tce-load -w wifi.tcz
wifi.sh
Added wifi.sh -a  to /opt/bootlocal.sh                                                   
filetool.sh -b

The-load -w firmware-brcmfmac43430.tcz

wifi.sh did not work for me, maybe because I have a wireless router?

Had to edit /etc/sysconfig/wifi-wpadrv, used nl880211 instead of wext
Made a wpa.conf and used this
wpa_supplicant -B -iwlan0 -c/home/tc/wpa.conf -Dnl80211

Have not done wifi on piCore before.
To many other things to learn, but now that Pi 3's are around it got bumped up the list.
Still much more to learn re command line wifi.
Basically fumbling around in the dark, trying things from google.
Might have fire up a X11 version of piCore and try to see how GUI's do it.

Is there a wifi GUI?
Time to read up
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireless_tools_for_Linux#wpa_supplicant.2Fhostapd

wpa_supplicant for client
hostapd for server
So if I want to make a Pi3 lawnmower controlled via wifi I need to learn hostapd?

if you are trying to use hostapd....then that is a whole different beast.

wext driver worked fine for me.

Yep wext works too.
Not sure what the difference is anyway yet.

I used the wifi to scan local access points
sudo iw wlan0 scan | grep SSID

https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/Documentation/iw
iw better than iwconfig?

Probably should move this to a Pi3 wifi post, getting off track?

Good idea, it is not really a piCore issue.

Bela,,

When does /opt/shutdown.sh get called?  I was expecting to find it in /etc/init.d/rc.shutdown but it's not there.

I'm back on trying to fix reboot hangs when I'm running on wifi, and have a network share mounted.

I believe what happens is that the wifi connection gets killed before the drive is unmounted......when the system tries to unmount all drives, it has to wait for a timeout to move on.

Hi Paul_123
Take a look in  /usr/bin/exitcheck.sh

Sure enough.....

running "exitcheck.sh reboot" does the trick

Hi Béla,

  I have been trying to use a modified /etc/hosts file and found that it kept reverting after a reboot.

  I eventually tracked down the issue to the /usr/bin/sethostname script which overwrites this file when it is run.

  I have modified the /usr/bin/sethostname script to only change the hostname value in the /etc/hosts file, which works to my satisfaction, and I attach a diff file of these changes.

  If they are acceptable, could the modified /usr/bin/sethostname script be incorporated into the next beta or release candidate build please.

Rpi has moved to Kernel 4.4.y

Is the plan to stay at 4.1.20 for a little bit?

Good question. In the latest 7.1beta editions GCC, GLIBC was updated to latest upstream and I just updated BusyBox for the not yet released beta4. I will travel in the rest of the month so no new release in April. In May I will make a new release with the current 4.4.x kernel .
