Amiga brain unable to connect to internet


  • What package and version are you using ?

(venv) amiga@refracting-reinitialise:~$ uname -a
Linux refracting-reinitialise 4.9.253-tegra #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Jan 8 23:41:46 PST 2023 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

  • Please, describe the issues you are seeing ?

We have been trying to install an example app without avail. When we try to run ./, it throws an error message which says we are unable to connect to the internet. It looked similar to the previous post: No Internet Access on Amiga connected to a Wifi Network - #7 by shrijits.

How should we proceed?

hostname: refracting-reinitialise
IP address:

Thank you!

Hello Pamodya,

Unfortunately I do not see the machine online at this moment but should have a method to “self-service” the fix this weekend or be able to schedule a time to fix the issue.

@ppeiris if you could post the output of host and ping that might be helpful. Also can you paste the output of ifconfig.

If it can ping but not resolve you can try the following work around until a proper fix is available.

ssh to the amiga and run the following command.

echo nameserver | sudo tee /etc/resolv.conf
host # should print some ip addresses

While on wifi and once SSH’d into the amiga, try the following command.

curl -v

Once this returns an array with a status of “ok”, power cycle the amiga brain (or whole amiga) to allow the system to pick up the correct DNS hosts.

This is needed only once.

Thank you @chris @ethanrublee. We’ll try these first. Could we also schedule a time this week?

Sure, how does Wednesday at 11AM PST sound?
Are there other items you may need assistance with?

@chris yes 11 AM PST works. 3 PM PST works better if that works with you. we have more questions. Thank you.
