    Help: Errors when connecting Edison to wifi

    marblegravy

      I've ben trying to set up my edison for ages now and keep running in to errors. I've stumbled my way through most of them now, but I'm following the instructions on

       

      The first time I run configure-edison -w I get the count-down while it looks for networks but at around 6 and 4 it throws the following error twice:

       

      Failed to connect to non-global ctrl_ifname: (null)  error: No such file or directory


      Then if I try and run it again, I get:

       

      Job for wpa_supplicant.service failed. See 'systemctl status wpa_supplicant.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.

      Failed to connect to non-global ctrl_ifname: (null)  error: No such file or directory

      Failed to connect to non-global ctrl_ifname: (null)  error: No such file or directory


      I just finished following the instructions to flash the Edison at Flashing Edison (wired) - Mac so I don't imagine that's an issue unless the image I flashed was a broken one for some weird reason (it was the Yocto image downloaded from the Edison downloads page).


      What do I need to do to be able to start tinkering?!
