PirateBox on Raspberry

This Page is currently under construction! It may work, its more like a draft Help: PirateBox Forum - Raspberry Pi Thread

  • Download: Raspbian “wheezy”
  • Install Raspberry as normal:
  • Boot as normal with a Monitor & Keyboard
  • Do the following steps in Raspi-Config
    • Enable SSH Server via raspberry-config
    • change Password
    • Expand FS
    • Finish & reboot now
  • Wait until reboot is finished- needs a while because the OS is resizing the filesystem during this reboot
  • Install needed packages and prepare some stuff:
 # sudo apt-get update
 # sudo apt-get -y install lighttpd
 # sudo /etc/init.d/lighttpd stop
 # sudo update-rc.d lighttpd remove
 # sudo apt-get -y install dnsmasq 
 # sudo /etc/init.d/dnsmasq  stop
 # sudo update-rc.d dnsmasq remove 
 # sudo apt-get -y  install hostapd
 # sudo /etc/init.d/hostapd  stop
 # sudo update-rc.d hostapd remove 
 # sudo rm /bin/sh
 # sudo ln /bin/bash /bin/sh
 # sudo chmod a+rw /bin/sh
  • Fetch and copy over PirateBox Source
 # wget 
 # tar xzf piratebox-ws_0.3.1.tar.gz
 # sudo mkdir -p  /opt
 # sudo cp -rv  piratebox /opt
 # cd /opt/piratebox
 # sudo ln /opt/piratebox/init.d/piratebox /etc/init.d/piratebox
 # sudo update-rc.d piratebox  defaults 
 # sudo /etc/init.d/piratebox start
 # sudo touch /opt/piratebox/conf/init_done
