Re: WPA2 Network Connection

Hi, There are more then one way to setup a wireless connection. Like the recent versions of Fedora, it is now possible to configure WIFI using the Network Manager like this: [[email protected] ~]# nmcli dev wifi con <yourssid> password <yourwirelesskey> Connection with UUID 'aa60e0b6-8871-4d79-b0c1-44xxxx...

Re: Network rstarting each minute

Hi rotarucalin, I have a very interesting issue with my Pi B+. I have a periodic restart of the network that is driving me crazy. I've seen it only once. But the problem was gone before I could determine what was going on. It appears to be very common issue on all Raspberry distributions when I see ...

Re: Installing telnet-server

Once installed i can see xinetd service running but not telnet-server. How do I start telnet server?? Use "systemctl" instead of "service". That is Legacy and it becoming more and more out dated. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Systemd Use "telnet.socket" instead of "telnet-server". Start xinetd and...

Hi satishcarya, You have trouble configuring your WIFI adapter on Pidora. You're very brief on what goes wrong. What type of brand is your adapter? It is possible that the chip-set of your WIFI adapter is too new, so that the Linux kernel that Pidora is using does not provide support for it at this ...

You do this by placing the correct settings (depending on the type display you are using) in /boot/config.txt.

Re: How to find the current IP address?

It's hard to google for this because of the Pidora "headless" feature which reads out the IP address over the audio channel and by blinking the LEDs. This very clever feature doesn't help when googling a pretty simple problem. My Pi, using Pidora, has booted up and successfully connected to a WiFi ...
