Thanks, Didier July 21, 2017 at 5:22 pm #54508 squigleyMember I think error -2 is a “no such file or directory” error. I suspect you are missing the firmware file for your wifi chip, iwlwifi-3160-17.ucode. These files are usually under stupid licences that do not allow re-distribution, so they are not included in the OS install, and need to be installed afterwards. I looks like you can get the file you need from here: https://github.com/OpenELEC/iwlwifi-firmware/tree/master/firmware (I just found this with google). But I’m not sure where in the filesystem you need to put it, possibly under /lib/firmware/ July 29, 2017 at 4:24 pm #54509 didierMember Thanks for the hint but. The file system is read only, root@zershell firmware> touch test touch: cannot touch `test’: Read-only file system root@zershell firmware> pwd /lib/firmware I had a look in /Database but didn’t find any place for drivers. I there a way to add drivers in Zeroshell ? Thanks August 2, 2017 at 2:46 am #54510 iulybMember @didier wrote: Thanks for the hint but.
