Author Topic: Crash with "apt-get upgrade" or "apt-get install wpa_supplicant"  (Read 6855 times)

Hello,

I try to use the GuruPlug as a wlan client. The wiki indicates the use of a package wpa_supplicant. I cannot install it as the apt-get crashes the GuruPlug everytime I use it  ???. Any idea why it crashes ? Any idea for a workaroud ?

I have checked the sources.list and this server is never responding : deb http://10.82.108.51/kedars/sheevaplug_wifi/builds/packages/ binary/
I removed the line but an apt-get crashes the GuruPlug while reading the package list at 46%

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

Hello

What do you mean with "apt-get crashes"? I assume it just does not download from that server.
Are you connecting over ssh? Does your network work properly? Do a apt-get update and it should download most of the package information (mine also can't connect to the server you mentioned: "W: Failed to fetch http://10.82.108.51/kedars/sheevaplug_wifi/builds/packages/binary/en_US.gz  Could not connect to 10.82.108.51:80")

But: do you really have to download this package? I think wlan is working by default.
Maybe this helps? http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=624.0

It is the GuruPlug that crashes. It reboots without warning while reading the list (45 or 46%). In fact, it seems I cannot install any package at all.

I am just trying to have the wifi running as a WLAN client. I followed the tutorial in the plugwiki and after modifiyng the startup mode to WLAN client (and not host), it says install and use wpa_supplicant to enable the GuruPlug to get connected to a WPA protected wifi network : http://www.plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/Setting_GuruPlug_to_be_a_WiFi_Client

If anyone as an idea to connect to a WPA wifi network without installing the package or to make the package installation work, I would appreciate it greatly !

Thanks for the link but I could find information for  WEP only. By the way my network is running perfectly well, so I really thing the problem is the GuruPlug (as I have also SheevaPlug working well but is not wifi).

Thanks in advance.

I already read a few times that there might be an issue with 1Gb network. Try to switch to 100Mb (I don't know how to do it though :p). Here is a post mentioning the problem: https://www.newit.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,388.msg1665.html#msg1665
