Dream : My raspberry zero mod

Post#1 » Tue Sep 06, 2016 4:39 pm

I made Dreampi raspberry pi zero for thus who wanna take small idea how to do it.

i use raspberry pi zero, usb hub 4 ports (inside i have wifi adapter tongle, i wish i can find the way to connect and run via dreampi), usb modem fax, TP link ethernet adapter and mini usb to micro usb cable. For some reason raspberry pi zero can't give enough power to use many adapters but i found a small tricky thing. The TP link ethernet is the way to give enough to all usb hub and is not necessary to use power adapter on usb hub(one more less adapter). If you have any questions please ask me :)

Great DreamPi build!
Raspberry Pi zero is perfect for that things.
I triead to make the wifi works too, but with no succes.
The wifi usb works perfectly doing a easy setup on

Reboot and the wifi catch the IP on my net, able to acces via ssh... All perfect. But dont launch correctly the Python script of dreampi or dont aims well to the wlan0 interface. When dreamcast tries to call, the DC ip doesnt exists. The usb dial-up modem doesnt do nothing.
I retourned to work with the eth0 interface and DC now connects again with the world like always.
I didnt found any cron startup job, only a dreampi script on init.d folder. End of the attemp. :-(.

I think that the fail is in some file tha bridges the usb wifi with usb modem.

Someone have another way or try?

UPDATE: I got it. Works Fine. I will open a New post explaining it. I tried only on a Raspberry PI 1 and a usb wifi (very bad and cheap), but sure that it will works on a newer pi that have integreted wifi too, like RP3. Now your DremPiZero will be more tiny!!! :-)
Be Dreamcast My Friend!!!

I am also trying to get the Pi Zero to be a Dreampi. I see that your Pi Zero is not plugged into anything for power. How is it on then?
