If I remember correctly, you have to hit http://[yourRPi]/board/admin.pl - you should then be asked for your password and can delete stuff ;-)

Re: Raspbian howto?

I don't know of any tutorial, but you can download the stuff and extract the /opt/piratebox directory. You will need all the dependencies (lighttpd, hostapd, etc.) and you'll have to get them to start by themselves with the correct config files (located at /opt/piratebox/conf)... I think it's possible if you are willing to put some work in it, and if you're familiar with raspbian ;-)

Good Luck!

Hi,
this is the old howto for 0.6 [piratebox.aod-rpg.de] (out of my history of the wiki)

it applies to 95% to the PirateBox 1.0, but in the current PBx 1.0.0 release are some bugs that may cause some trouble.

Thanks for your time.

I get this response below after pi start up.

Running

and

works only until next start.

Tried increasing probe time to no avail.

Using approved TP-Link TL-WN722N wireless adapter and followed setup instructions exactly, numerous times.

Any help or advise much appreciated. Keep up the awesome work BTW.

Hey guys
I'm a massive amateur at anything to do with computers and managed to set up the piratebox but I want to be able to load all files on my 8GB usb and be able to edit what is on there by putting it in my computer after.

Can I even do this? If so how?

Thanks in advance

Hi,
thanks for your feedback.

Can you please edit the file /opt/piratebox/conf/hostapd.conf

and add the following lines at the end:

logger_syslog=-1
logger_syslog_level=2


After that, please power you raspberry off (using the command "halt"),
and then boot it and post again the output of
systemctl status piratebox

Those two lines should enable the debug output of hostapd and hopefully systemd catches that (and shows it later on)

Thanks,
Matthias

Re: WiFi AP with Edimax EW-7811Un

Thanks for this!!!

I had some trouble at first, took me a couple hours. (Im not really a linux guru)

My problem was the last step of the tutorial, it said to edit /etc/default/hostapd and update a line. the file was empty for me but i added the line anyway. It said it would make it start on boot. It didnt work. after a lot of trial and error i ended up using systemd to get the wifi dongle to work at startup.

If anyone is as dumb as me and needs help hese how i did it.

Execute this command:
nano /etc/systemd/system/wifi.service


Add the following:
[Unit]
Description=Starts Wifi
[Service]
ExecStart=/usr/bin/hostapd -dd /etc/hostapd/hostapd/conf
[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target


Execute these commands:
systemctl start wifi
systemctl enable wifi

Thanks.

Okay sorry I forgot something. This is probobly a really terrible way of doing this but its all i could think of.

I forgot to mention that you need to set the service on a timer or else it wont work, im assuming this is because the os is not ready at the point it executes.

So assuming you did the steps above:

Execute the following:
systemctl disable wifi.service
nano /etc/systemd/system/wifi.timer


Enter the following:
[Unit]
Description=wifi timer
[Timer]
OnBootSec=1min
Unit=wifi.service
[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target


Execute the following:
systemctl enable wifi.timer


Reboot and it should work. Sorry if this is a really backwards way of doing things, its all i could think of. Feel free to provide a better solution.

Hi Peter,
thank you... too bad, I hoped that would give more information on the first try.

Can you modfiy/add the lines & test again please. Now the snipped would be:

logger_syslog=-1
logger_syslog_level=1
logger_stdout=-1
logger_stdout_level=1

Thanks Matthias

Thanks.

I applied the same changes and get the same feedback as Peter (above).

For the record I get the same response with not only the TP-Link TL-WN722N but also the WIPI (FCC ID: OYR-COMFAST88). Both are listed as known to be working. I just wondered what might be different in our cases here where the setup is working.

I am more than happy to provide you with unlimited hosting from my account. Let me know if this is ok and I'll provide you with the link.

You have to configure some stuff in the config.pl file (in the same directory as all the other board stuff)

- What files do you mean?

Re: Really don't get how to set up the USB

Basically, you'll have to:
1. Plug in the USB device
2. Wait a few seconds
3. Enter the command
lsusb
And see if your device is listed, if yes, go to 4, if no...well, that's another problem
4. Enter the command
dmesg | tail
And find the device name associated with the usb (something like /dev/sda1)
5. Mount it using (something like)
mkdir /mnt/usb
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb

You might have to change the syntax on any of those commands, or google "how to mount usb flash on arch linux" or alike

Good luck! ;-)

Oh, thanks for this!
I guess that /etc/default/hostapd is not in use, if it's some kind of configuration file you'll need to edit the /opt/piratebox/conf/hostapd.conf, because that's the one in use ;-)

I'll add that in my post, thanks a lot!

Edit: Took a look at the tutorial - What they are doing is getting hostapd to start at bootup with the correct config, we don't need to do that because it will be started by the piratebox service with /opt/piratebox/conf/hostapd.conf as config file ;-)

How can I connect a usb flash drive and use my 16gb sd card (os sd card) for the piratebox file sharing instead? Because I would need to expand the file system before I do that right? And I don't even know how to cd to the flash drive and cope the directory anyways.
