wireless dCore-stretch
« on: June 23, 2018, 05:30:37 AM »
I've got a minimal dCore-jessie installation with kmaps, wireless-3.16.6-tinycore, wireless and a text mode web browser as only extensions. It's working fine.

Now I wanted to get a minimal dCore-stretch installation with kmaps, wireless-4.8.17-tinycore, wireless and a text mode web browser as only extensions. But there arises a problem.

With only the above extensions loaded I don't get a connection ("Failed to connect") to my (password-protected) router, although a connection to a public AP (not password-protected) is possible.

If I additionally to above called extensions install and load xorg-all or xorg-intel, there is no problem and I can connect to my router. But I want to remove xorg...

Hi volkerp
It sounds like one of those  xorg  extensions is supplying a missing dependency, maybe  openssl?

Hi Rich,
I already suspected exactly this and installed onboot therefore wpasupplicant and openssl. But unfortunately it didn't help.

Hi volkerp,

I compared the differences in the deps drawn in by wireless package of  dCore-jessie and dCore-stretch and here is what may be missing in wireless of dCore-stretch:

libcap-ng0
libkmod2
libperl5.24
libreadline7
libunistring0

If you could import those packages in addition to wireless in dCore-stretch and see if it works I would appreciate it.  I will  get a wireless card for my PC in the near future to test wireless so I can make sure the deps of wireless in each dCore port are good.

I have added the above deps to the wireless package.  Please re-import and test.

Hi Jason W,

I loaded all five libs, but still I can't get a connection to my router without xorg.

Thank you very much for your effort!

Hi volkerp,
On a minimal dCore-stretch install with only the packages you mentioned I ran ldd on /sbin/wpa_supplicant and found that liblz4.so.1 was missing.  I added liblz4-1 to the dependencies of the wpasupplicant package and password protected wireless works with only the wireless and wireless-$kernelversion packages installed.  I will test the other dCore ports to make sure they also work the same as expected.

Thanks for your testing and input.


 
EDIT: All standard x86 and x86_64 dCore ports have been tested and password protected wireless works with only the wireless and wireless-$kernelversion packages installed.
