Setting up Wi-Fi in HypriotOS v1.7.1


#1

I just flashed the latest version of HypriotOS, v0.7.9, to my SD card. However, /boot doesn’t contain device-init.yaml in this version of the OS… How do can we set up our WiFi with the latest version of HypriotOS? A procedure on how to do that would be very helpful :slight_smile:

*EDIT: the latest version is v1.7.1 (not v0.7.9)

G’day

I used hypriotOS 1.6.0. The newer versions do not have the .yaml tile in question.

Are these the instructions that you are looking for??

Right on. From what I can gather, device-init.yaml doesn’t exist anymore in v1.7.0 and beyond. The BrewPi Wiki is written in the context of pre-v1.7.0 (as you’re using). For now I’m gonna format my SD card and try it with v1.6.0 so I can (hopefully) get back up and running faster.


#4

This has been causing me issues too. I’m keen to use the latest version myself.


#5

I ordered 3 new Raspberry Pi’s for testing. I’ll set them up using the new version and will update the wiki, probably tomorrow.


#6

You might find it easier to just use the latest Raspbian image (Stretch) as it works fine. I did ensure that I did an update on apt and then pulled down the latest docker first though.


#7

+1 for just using Raspian and pulling the docker package through the repos. I think it will be more stable, less likely to see configuration files moved around and make finding generic OS installation support easier. For our very low intensity needs, I don’t think whatever optimizations a docker specialized OS provides are really necessary.


#8

I think you have a good point. Hypriot had its place when docker wasn’t support on normal raspbian yet. I’ll give that a shot and rewrite the wiki.
Will also make it much easier for users to switch to docker. No need to re-image.


#9

I rebuilt my Pi recently and installed Raspian Stetch Lite (no GUI) and installed docker. A few items may help

Only thing I struggled with is the BrewPi container was getting access denied to opening the USB port for the BrewPi. I had to run chmod a+rw /dev/ttyACM0 to allow the container to access. I added it to /etc/rc.local but I assume there is a better way to do that


#10

I have updated the BrewPi container and the wiki:

I think the process will be a lot easier than before.
I stopped using hypriot and switched to Raspbian.
