Post Install

Besides the generic PostInstall are these device specific actions needed.

  • Edit the file /etc/default/robocfg and make sure there is a line like
  • Have a good /etc/network/interfaces, a way to get one could be
    ln -fs /etc/network/interfaces.lan-wlan-bridge /etc/network/interfaces
  • Execute
    update-rc.d robocfg defaults
    update-rc.d robocfg enable S
    update-rc.d hostapd defaults
    update-rc.d hostapd enable S
  • Reboot


  • Port numbers on the casing do not match the robocfg port numbers. Port 5 of robocfg is indeed the CPU port.
  • Having a USB to serial convertor on the second USB port, can give you a serial console without soldering.
  • No IP connection due incomplet configured bridge. See ticket #131 for more information
