Call Reminder : Saturday, December 12 at 14:00 UTC

The FreedomBox community’s upcoming progress call is this Saturday, December 12 at 14:00 UTC. We aim for our calls to last no more than one hour, although sometimes the core team stays on the call past one hour to discuss additional items.

As always, our team will discuss the latest issues in our software development and community. All are welcome to join the discussion or listen!

How To Connect :
We are using Mumble/Plumble, voice over IP (VoIP) applications. Please connect to server port 64738.

  • We use Mumble for voice communications to allow residents outside of the United States to participate without running up a phone bill.
  • You do not need to create a username before hand (just make one up).
  • No passwords are required.
  • You can join the call using desktop or mobile apps. There is a client package in debian (mumble) and an app for Android phones (plumble).
  • We recommend you use headphones (or half-duplex mode) to avoid any echo.

Notes will be taken at A link to the collaborative document to be posted in chat before meeting.

Comment agenda items here! If you can’t make it to the call but want to put something on the agenda, please feel free to comment in this thread. We’ll get to it if time permits.

Hope to see you there!

Hi, I would like to leave a comment for an agenda item if there’s time in the call.

“USB Wi-Fi. Outdated firmware versus updated kernels. (Specifically: the discontinued TP-Link TL-WN821N… Version 5… RTL8192EU…trying to enable on the Freedombox Pioneer)”

My search continues…

Never mind! I am both diligent and a dumbass! I found the solution that got my device to be identified by Freedombox, and as in depth as I had to go to determine why certain little parts of things weren’t working and how to fix them… the most basic starting solution is indeed found at the Debian wiki

Once I start tweaking it further I can add more… but hopefully this can be of use to those who seek it.
