I just downloaded and burned the picroft image from 3.14. I get through the boot sequence without any issue except that I can’t get it to connect to wifi. I’m on a Pi zero w and I realize I won’t have enough computing power to run Mycroft but I would think I should be able to get it to connect to wifi. I modified the wpa_supplicant.conf file and added my wifi ssid and password. I have verified that my wifi is working correctly but I just can’t figure out how to get it connected with this image. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The documentation for manually configuring Picroft Wi-Fi is here;
but it sounds like this isn’t working. What do the logs at
The logs are empty. I’m wondering if it’s an issue with Raspbian itself. There seem to be several issues that I have found with a zero w not being able to connect with some versions of Jessie. What version of Raspian is the current release of picroft based on?
Good question for @forslund - who’s in transit for the next day or so
@Wolfgange might be better than me here.
Have you manually changed the wpa_supplicant.conf or have you tried to connect using the Wifi-setup (Capture portal you can connect to to setup the wifi connection)
What type of encryption are you using on your wifi?
Yes I did change the wpa_supplicant.conf file manually. I’m using wpa2 encryption so it should work.
I’m wondering if it’s an issue with the version of Raspbian that’s used for picroft. Because I’m using a pi zero w, maybe the drivers aren’t present. I’m going to give the latest unstable version a try and see if it makes any difference.
That might be a possible explanation. This might be helpful: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=184677
Upgrading the kernel/system will probably make the wifi-setup process fail but you should be able to configure manually using the wpa_supplicant.conf
Haven’t been able to try upgrading yet. I’m thinking I’ll probably just buy a new pi 3 and use that instead.
Sorry I didn’t see this earlier. The wifi setup has now moved under the umbrella of the
mycroft-admin-service. If you wanted to troubleshoit further, make sure to look under
Hope this helps,
