Wifi TL-WN725N

Post by lccotta »

Dear all,
I am a beginer using stereo vision and I am trying to configure a dongle wifi TP-Link TL-WN725N on a SLP distribution.
The wifi was properly working on a Raspberry Pi OS distribuition after instaling the driver, folowing these steps:

https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 71#p462982

tar -zxvf 8188eu-201xyyzz.tar.gz <--set data code for driver version above
sudo install -p -m 644 8188eu.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
sudo insmod /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko
sudo depmod -a

The file 8188eu-201xyyzz.tar.gz , I downloaded from http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi ... yzz.tar.gz

where xyyzz is the kernel version, that I got from the command: uname -a

Unfortunatly, when I tried to use in SLP distribution, the wifi is not working. And, because it is blocked to edit, I could not configure it properly.

Someone can help me to solve this problem?

Hello lccotta,
SLP has a read-only filesystem by default for filesystem safety purposes.
TO unlock it, you can follow the guide in the advanced users' section of our Wiki.
To say briefly, right after login enter two commands:

Code: Select all

sudo mount -o rw,remount /

Code: Select all

sudo mount -o rw,remount /boot
After that filesystem will be turned to the read/write mode, until the next reboot. And you can install all software you need.
