trying to overwrite ‘/lib/firmware/rt3290.bin’, which is also in package wireless-firmware-osmc 1.1.2
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I also disabled connman.
systemctl disable connman.service
I installed the latest osmc-build a few times refresh. I didn´t imported any settings. I did sudo apt-get update
and during another test i didn´t update, so no success.
If i use the original osmc build in-thetering-feature (wifi enabled, ethernet to wifi)- the raspberry give me a hotspot wich im able to connect… buuut my iPhone shows no WiFi Symbol in the top but i am connected and get an IP (192.168.0.2) from the Raspberry. But no Data. Thats quite strange.
When i´m trying whole thing with hostapd - always the driver issue and no ap. I did this various times from scratch with the latest osmc build.
I tried the same steps with raspbian - it was working flawless. I tried also the thetering feature of LibreELEC. No problems with the AP! So for me it looks that there is a driver problem with the ralink drivers.
For testing- is there a possibillity to deinstall the osmc-ralink drivers and install the jessie drivers? Lets give that a shot.
osmc@osmc:~$ iw list

But if iam set bridge=br0. It is no possible to connect to the AP! I recieve the following errors.
wlan0: STA bc:54:36:2c:e9:ba IEEE 802.11: authenticated

WPA: wpa_sm_step() called recursively
It seems thats wpa_supplicant is blocking the driver. If you don´t need to connect with a WiFi, you can deinstall/ disable it. Then u have a few further problems…
Bridge is not up, ethernet is not part of the bridge, Network (Lan) is locking when u add ether net to the bridge…no possibillity to access via SCP.
Just control all you steps with brctl show and ifconfig (not ifconfig -a!).
What are the steps (after the others in the fist post):
Remove wpa_supplicant - sudo apt-get remove wpasupplicant
Bring Bridge up - sudo ifconfig br0 up
Add eth0 to the bridge (in my settig wlan0 is already part of the network) - sudo brctl addif br0 eth0 (after that- eth0 is locking!)
Stop and restart the network services - sudo service networking stop, sudo systemctl daemon-reload, sudo service networking startifconfig
Now i have to reporoduce that steps automatically after every reboot…and somehow i cant connect to that device via scp. The IP that ifconfig shows for eth0 isnt answerring.
Did anyone know- how its possible to enter OSMC from the commandline again without reboot…???
