This tells me there is an issue with 4.1-RC1.
Hey, you wanna try something really quick and see what happens? I don't have a Zero to test.

You are going to need to connect to network though, so maybe tried wired and then run this:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install openresolv
I was able to get my 4.1 hotspot to act correctly the instant I reinstalled that package, it started resolving network hosts right away.

For some reason Andy removed that package, I'm guessing he was trying to downsize the image, and I'm 99% certain that is the culprit.
I went ahead and tried this with an RPi 3B+ based hotspot (so I could use a wired connection to my network), but I got an error message. Any ideas?

Code: Select all

Have you run a "sudo apt-get update" recently? Normally its kinda assumed you run that before other apt-get install commands, so I kinda didn't mention it. Sorry about that, but it might be that theres a serious issue with that package and they've removed it from the repo. I'll have to take a look and see if I can find any info on it.
All views, comments, posts and opinions shared are entirely my own.

:lol: , if someones previous actions are any indication of their future actions, then I predict the deletion and removal of access will happen at any moment. 7-11-2020.

I run sudo apt-get update on a regular basis on my RPi computer in my shack, but I've never run it on any of my Pi-Star hotspot RPi boards. I didn't even know that was possible. I do run sudo pistar-update on a regular basis, though I didn't in this case, since I was working on a brand new install.

I'll try running sudo apt-get update and see what happens.

Did the Beta get pulled. I got my Pi 4 and was hoping to have something to play with.

Sadly for you guys, its going to be burn a new image, since it looks like only a small number of people managed to get the 4.1 build - once I get one that is behaving we'll roll changes into that one so there wont be too many new image cycles.
