Newbie here. Have created an SD card and first tested it out on a Raspberry Pi 1. Works fine - WiFi channel appears and I can connect to it.
But I use a Raspberry Pi 2 in the workshop and running the system on this one, none of the WiFi dongles I have will work. I can see during the boot one line that says:
bcm2835-v412: error -1
Could not insert ‘bcm2835_v412’ operation not permitted
and I am guessing that this is the Broadcom driver. So is there a compatibility issue with the rPi2?
Just figured out that it does not load the WiFi dongle if connected to the LAN. Is it not possible to have both?
But if it is connected to the LAN during bootup, I then can’t connect to it all… so maybe just ignore me 'till I have played around with this a bit more! Probably have more to learn.
Ok, so it sets the IP with DCHP when connected to the LAN. Used Terminal on the Pi to find out what the IP was and am able to connect to it using that. Haven’t seen this documented anywhere - or have I missed something?
Anyhow - so am up and running. Have a problem with temperature reading, but will do that on another thread.
