invalid/unknown driver 'rtl8192cu' - in hostapd

Re-asking this quuestion as it appears to still be a relevant issue. None of the latest Debian distributions include a driver that resolves this issue. On the contrary, most GitHub patches that are made to build and compile ancient versions of hostapd with a specific realtek driver seem outdated: ht...

Hey, Thank you for your replies. Just to clarify things a little bit: The SD card is practically brand new. What I was trying to achieve, was to test whether something works on both Stretch and Jessie. So, I took 4 images from the Raspbian download site ( https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian_l...

Is your external drive format in fat! if yes than the maximum is 2GB per file.
All drives are EXT4. I don't use FAT nor NTFS.

Re: SSH was working but now "Permission denied (publickey)"

As a workaround, I have a shell script file on the Pi that gets run every minute as a cron job. I plugged the Pi SD into my laptop and modified the shell script to run:

Code: Select all

ssh-keygen -f "/home/jimjamz/.ssh/known_hosts" -R 192.168.0.5
However, it did not solve the problem.

The SSH link does encrypt the communication but the standard proxy doesn't. So the chinese can still observe your http traffic and block it if you visit "illegal" sites.

The only issue I can think of would be if you were forwarding a port on your PC that was open to outside users - e.g. if your PC was set up to allow users on your network to access port 8080, using that port to access your proxy might not be what you want. As long as you don't have anything like th...
