Hi there,

I would like to install mc to my piratebox. How can I connect to internet via wifi? The instructions here are for version 1.1.3: raspberry pi:mods

I'm using 1.1.4-27. How can I change from AP to client mode? How should I configure wpa_supplicant.conf?

Alright, I tried it. What I have done:

1.) Boot raspi zero w
2.) connect with the AP of the pirate box with wlan on my ipad
3.) connect via ssh from my ipad
4.) in the terminal gone to /boot and edit wpa_supplicant.conf with the editor "vi"
-> simply insert "SSID" and "PASSWD" of my Wlan
5.) Execute "sudo /opt/piratebox/rpi/bin/switch_to_client.sh"
6.) Reboot
7.) connect from my linux pc with "ssh alarm@alarmpi"

At this moment i could install new software with pacman. Cool. smileys with beer After reboot the piratebox works fine offline again.
