Pi zero install
« on: August 04, 2020, 06:43:07 AM »
Recently saw you tube video by nova spirit on how to install tinycore on a pi zero W with wireless support. His article that was liked is for version 9. Wanted to know if I could use guide with current version (11)?

My first attempt using version 11 failed.... so am guessing something has changed either in packages required or package versions

Yup the file has changed....as the firmware is for many rpi boards now.

firmware-rpi-wifi.tcz

The extension with the kernel modules will have a different name too to match your current kernel.  That is wireless-4.19.81-piCore.tcz   I think everything else is the same....

So ran tce-load -i firmware-rpi-wifi and tce-load -i wifi, only if I run sudo wifi.sh I get no devices found. Do I need to load something else as well?

lsmod does not really give any clues, ifconfig only shows lo connection.

dmesg shows cfg80211 as loaded... Switched to root (sudo -s) then ran wifi.sh again. Menu of access points came up and I have connected to net. ifconfig shows wlan0. Will carry on with rest of guide (so that wifi works out of the box).

Am getting ssh keys at boot is this normal?

You’re meant to make a backup the very first time you boot in order to save the ssh keys.
