Re: [meta-raspberrypi] core-image-minimal vs rpi-hwup-image

Sherif Omran <sherifomran2000@...>

hi Andrei,

but when i do core-image-minimal and use the linux-firmware-bcm43430
i get the following:
configuring network interfaces : sucessfully initialized wpa_supplicant
rfkill : cannot open rfkill control device
could not read interface wlan0 flags: no such device
WEXT: could not set interface wlan0 up.

it looks like additional packages are mandatory

to include it, I added
IMAGE_INSTALL += "linux-firmware-bcm43430"

is there a bluetooth driver to be added as well?

in raspberrzpi0-wifi.conf : the line SERIAL_CONSOLE is causing respawning too fast. is it needed for bluetooth communication?

thank you

hello guys,

Core-image-minimal has 75 MB and boots in max 12 sec but lacks wifi drivers.
rpi-hwup-image has 142.MB and boots in 18 sec.

how to add wifi drivers to core-image-minimal?

All you need to do is include in core-image-minimal the package linux-firmware-bcm43430 .
