Support for Wifi on Pi Zero W?
« on: April 07, 2018, 08:42:08 AM »
I have a picore installation that runs perfectly on my Rapsberry Pi 3 and connects to the Wifi network.

However, when I put the SD card into my "Pi Zero W Rev 1.1" the wifi.sh does not show any devices. Neither does it connect to my Wifi.

Is there support for Wifi on the Pi Zero?


Thanks for help.

I found a thread related to my issue (http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,21134.msg133965.html) and followed the hint to reorder the extension list in onboot.lst and load the firmware before the wifi package. Unfortunately this didn't solve the problem.

Further research in this forum (http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,20454.msg127612.html) told to add the non ARMv7 packages which solved my problem. :)
