I thought it all was working well, but now I get an error with installing packages:
Certificate verification failed.

What is wrong? I thought it worked all right earlier...

That error appears when either the date on your Zaurus is wrong, or the repository you're using has currently certification issues. The latter is solved by temporarily switching the repository's URL from https to http, or by changing repository:

The repositories can be changed from the default by copying the /usr/share/xbps.d/00-repository-main.conf file to /etc/xbps.d/ directory and editing the repository for example:
Code: [Select]
repository=http://alpha.us.repo.voidlinux.org/currenthttps://tutel.me/c/unix/questions/491888/vo...fication+failed

Hi,

just to clarify, the official Void repos do not have ARMv5tel packages and are not of use for Zaurus users.

If you received a certificate error for the Voidz repo that is hosted on OESF, this should be resolved now.
To set back your repo to the default Voidz one use this command*

Code: [Select]
echo 'repository=https://www.oesf.org/repository/feeds/voidlinux/testing/build8' > /etc/xbps.d/00-repository-main.confIf there is some more demand, I may update the voidz repository again this year, but so far the voidz usage has been quite low unfortunately.

Cheers,

Dear all,

Started my Zaurus today again. voidZ is installed. But I forgot how to get the wifi running. So, I simply entered the corresponding commands in the guide. However, turns out there are a few omissions now. Maybe due to the forum move?

I guess the correct statements should be:
Code: [Select]

ip link show
ip link set up wlan0
wpa_passphrase <ssid> <passphrase> >> /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant-wlan0.conf
iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
wpa_supplicant -B -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant-wlan0.conf -Dwext
udhcpc -i wlan0
ping google.com

Where the wpa_passphrase command can be omitted if wpa_supplicant-wlan0.conf already exists

Now find out what to do with the nice zaurus...

Hi MaBo and welcome back.

You're right, the instructions in the first post were not correctly converted from the old forum: for some unknown reason all the <_> tags under the _code_ tag were not displayed at all, even if they were still present in the post when editing it. It was enough to edit and save again it to make them reappear, everything should be correct now, thanks for pointing this out. I'll keep in mind this issue when fixing the remaining bugs introduced by the forum migration.
