[Solved] Auto connect to wifi onboot wasn't working
« on: December 30, 2018, 01:23:43 PM »
 Followed the guide on the wiki*, I'd suggest using "sleep 3" between the wpa and dhcpcd commands, as it seems the latter get there much faster and knocks his face on the door, i mean, received a SIGTERM(!)

* ie. verified the commands and conf file worked when issuing manually, after using bootlocal.sh didn't connect unless i reissued the dhcpcd command. sleep solved for me.

btw, I have a script that complains running as root ("dont run this as root") but it does run it if I first run it as non root. Anyway to fix this so I can run from bootlocal?

You might consider a including link so people don't have to guess where in the Wiki.

Maybe you could call the script from the end of your  .profile  file in your home directory?

Hi tcFan,

To run a program as a specific user:

$ sudo -u tc tce-load -i net-usb-KERNEL.tcz
