Re: Open Source Marine Linux for Raspberry Pi

How does this release handle creating/sharing a wifi access point? In the previous release (64-bit version) I would create an access point using Gnome, only to have it disappear after about 5 minutes. I wasn't sure if this was one of the limitations of the 64-bit version. I was going to reinstall with the 32-bit version to compare. Perhaps I'll do that now with this new release.

Why you were creating access point yourself. If you boot it up it already comes up with access point configured. Plug it into your router via Ethernet without removing access point. Check Getting Started Guide. Itís all there. Donít forget to set up WiFi country. Probably thatís was the reason for losing WiFi.

I'm just following this thread (and marine distros in general) ; I might try this one later.

Here's what the docs say about local AP:
1.5.3. Wi-Fi Access Point

Wi-Fi connections are managed by widely used Gnome NetworkManager. Look for 'nmcli' documentation (command line interface to NetworkManager). Or you can figure it out from Administration/Advanced Network Settings app menu. By default, OS image is set up to provide you with an access point.
... so it should just work. All I can suggest is to try it, and if you still encounter problems with the AP dropping, try the utils and troubleshooting that are part of the NetworkManager.

[aaand the head person has just replied, so i defer to them]

Re: Open Source Marine Linux for Raspberry Pi

OK. I guess my issue must have started with me trying to change the default name of the network to my boat name. It's been a couple of months since I last looked at it, so forgot all the steps i took.

And I encourage downloading and installing latest version. It has firewall too for your better safety. Just donít mix up with an image which was done specifically for Waveshare board. Some people already did that mistake.

Re: Open Source Marine Linux for Raspberry Pi

I'm just learning of this project. It seems it started being built upon OpenPlotter but is now its own project. Can you say something about the comparison of the two, and why we might use one over another?

Thanks,
Greg

Itís more modern design. Openplotter hadnít had released for a long time. Itís
based on my experiences using openplotter. Many more usability improvements over openplotter.
Many other features in all areas.
Image contains everything you would
normally need. Not like openplotter with which you install things after.

More details are here

Re: Open Source Marine Linux for Raspberry Pi

OK, thanks for the feedback. I was planning on making a Pi4 boat computer so I will give this a try - it looks very good. The display you recommended is 600 lines (as opposed to the 480 line display you said you were using). That seems a bit low, although the 1000 nits and waterproof case are pretty nice. Are there no 768, or better 1080, 7 inch displays that are similar? The display choice has always been a compromise. I take it that even at 480 it works adequately.

Thanks for your work.

Greg

Re: Open Source Marine Linux for Raspberry Pi

New release 2022-01-04 of Open-source Bareboat Necessities Marine OS for Raspberry Pi is available for downloads now.

It still includes OpenCPN 5.2.4 because OpenCPN 5.6.0 still doesnít have all plugins available.

You can upgrade to OpenCPN to 5.6.0 easily with apt install and update all plugins via OCPN plugin manager.

Release notes for this BBN release
and links to Getting Started Guide and download locations:

Thanks

Can you DISable this? I have an access point already, and want my Pi to connect to it.

Thatís not most common use case.
Wiring pi into the router is more proper and more common. I wouldnít want to disable current behavior for that reason.

Anyway all you need to do is set up WiFi country (thatís you do in any case)

remove access point in ďadvanced network configurationĒ,
and pick another WiFi to connect to
by clicking top right WiFi icon.

Re: Open Source Marine Linux for Raspberry Pi

Is the Bareboat Necessities system compatible with the dAISy Hat?
