Is there an image file for 2.6 in the future?
They usually only make images for major releases so I doubt there will be images for 2.6....
If to err is human, I am more human than most people.

Can you then upgrade from 2.5.3 to 2.6 when connected to the mini USB port? When I try here is what I get:


FPP Manual Update
[size=78%]Stopping fppd..[/size]
==========================================================================
Pulling in updates..
Can not access github, unable to pull git updates
==========================================================================
Restarting fppd..

Also, how do you get the time pulled from an NTP server. I put in an IP address but no go.  I can ping my router but is being connected by USB to the computer blocking the time and manual updates?


Thanks in advance.

When in doubt, empty the magazine!
Better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6.

You likely don't have a connection to the Internet DNS.  Try using 8.8.8.8 for a DNS server.

See my reply 5 posts up .. switch to dhcp and be sure you can reach the internet.
(who knows about the future - they might post a 2.6 image :-) )

Here is the problem:



Wireless LAN adapter Wi-Fi:


   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
   Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::a890:5556:4d2d:cde6%11
   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.7.3
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.7.1


Ethernet adapter Ethernet 2:


   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
   Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::4553:a78c:65c7:e0ef%8
   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.7.1
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.252
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :


FPP keeps showing up with the same IP address as the router.  I have set the PocketBeagle in FPP to a static IP of 192.168.7.2, BUT you see the results I am getting.  The Ethernet 2 adapter is the PocketBeagle connected via USB to the computer.


Help?

go into the network settings of your computer and set the DNS of FPP on the Wifi side to the gateway of the laptop.  You should be able to click on the Wiki help stuff and it take you to the site.  once you can do that try updating again.  I just went through hell getting my set-up to work and the DNS stuff was one of them.

Can you then upgrade from 2.5.3 to 2.6 when connected to the mini USB port? When I try here is what I get:

Can you just connect the BBB to your home network instead of tethering it to your PC?  If not, you will probably have to go into the filesystem on the BBB and update it to use a different subnet.  This involves editing at least a couple files, maybe more.

This is a PocketBeagle from dkulp.  Do you use a USB to RJ45 male to connect to the router?  I am REALLY a Noob at this kind of thing, so I am sorry for the dumb questions.  If the USB isn't right, hoe do you get into the network?

The pocket beagle does not have RJ45 ports! What you need to do is to setup a wireless connection on your PocketBeagle. To do this, connect the PocketBeagle to your computer with a Micro USB cable. You will need a WiFi adapter on the PocketBeagle.
After you connect, go to the network setup and make sure that you have your wireless network setup. You will need to enter your wireless SSID and password for your wireless network.
If that doesn't work, send us a screenshot of your wireless setup on the FPP
BTW, I love the F8PB, is that what you got?

You can  use a usb to ethernet(RJ45)  instead of usb to wifi if that is what you want. After setting up the network, click on update interface and then restart networking.

That's the one.  I know it doesn't have an RJ45. I was wanting to know if you could use an adapter from the USB on the PB to an RJ45 to the router.

Yep.  However, I've heard reports that not all of the gigabit USB->Network adapters work.  I was going to send a link to the one I use, but it's no longer available on Amazon.  :(


Found it on ebay:
https://www.ebay.com/p/QacQoc-Aluminum-USB-3-0-3-port-Portable-Data-Hub-With-1-Gbps-Ethernet-Port-Rj45/25023517243?iid=283335562595&chn=ps


I like it as it has a 3 port hub built in.  Thus, I put a wifi adapter in the hub and I can bring it up on ethernet and configure the wifi.  I see a few similar ones on Amazon.  I'll have to order one to see if they work the same.

This one worked good for me with the pocketscroller last year.  Should work with the F8-PB as well.
