Basic Troubleshoot help

  • Good afternoon, I've just bought the Edimax EW-7811Un wireless adapter specifically to be used with Recalbox. I'm having a few problems getting the wireless to work although I've put in the details in correctly. My next option was to try and edit the 'recalox.conf' file but I'm really struggling with this. The system folder referred to in the guide doesn't show on my network share only the folders psx, snes, mame etc. The following is from the dmesg [ 140.939243] usb 1-1.2: USB disconnect, device number 4 [ 824.550412] usb 1-1.5: USB disconnect, device number 6 [ 824.580740] rtw_cmd_thread(wlan0) stop_req:1, break [ 827.600658] usb 1-1.5: new high-speed USB device number 7 using dwc_otg [ 827.702031] usb 1-1.5: New USB device found, idVendor=7392, idProduct=7811 [ 827.702048] usb 1-1.5: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 827.702060] usb 1-1.5: Product: 802.11n WLAN Adapter [ 827.702071] usb 1-1.5: Manufacturer: Realtek [ 827.702082] usb 1-1.5: SerialNumber: 00e04c000001 Can someone point me in the right direction? Kindest regards, Nick

    Hi pal, The recalbox.conf is not available, i'm currently preparing it for the next release that will be online tonight. For now, you can use the "Network Settings" in the frontend, but you will have issues like many of us because of the unsupported keys on keyboard. If you want wifi right now, activate the wifi in emulationstation, then edit the /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

  • Hello nickdj The edimax wlan dongle have on some configurations a strange sleep mode issue. I already put an entry on github for that. To solve this issue, you need to add a following line to the file /etc/modprobe.d/8192cu.conf: options 8192cu rtw_power_mgnt=0 rtw_enusbss=0 Regarding the share. Your description of your behaviour sound like how it's implemented in recalbox today. In recalboxOS there is for each system a definition /recalbox/share/roms/<system> in /etc/samba/smb.conf. So there is no share for only /recalbox/share in smb.conf. You can adding this yourself. But you will lose this configuration when you update it online. @Retroboy: Why is the sharepoint not pointing only to /recalbox/share/ in smb.conf. It would allow users to access not only to the roms, they would also have access to screenshots and saves.

  • Thanks for you help. What I've done is ssh into recalbox and entered 'cat wpa_supplicant.conf' and it shows the correct SSID and password. By luck I think it's now working. The bluetooth adapter arrives in a few days so hopefully everything will up and running fully by the end of the week. I love this project, keep up the excellent work! Nick
