Christian,

You need an updated SM OS. I'm working on granting this download to all users who register. Meanwhile, I sent you a private message with a temporarily download link.

StellarMate OS v1.4.0 and StellarMate App Feedback #39508

Here is the summary:

Stellarmate fully registered (see username)
Wlan and LAN in your own network 100% error free.
Access to all network resources in your own network with VNC Viewer (mobile phone iOS and Win10)

Here is the error:

Stellarmate can not communicate with the Internet!
Update does not work, Chromium does not work, nothing that has to do with access. The new App 1.4 is not synonymous, but VNC
Viewer has access. It's definitely not on the network, that's a bug in the software. I would like to re-record everything, but I do not have this option.


Christian, I had a similar problem yesterday. Everything worked, but no outside internet. I had to add a DNS entry into the network control panel in the new Ubuntu 18.04.

Looks like I'm in the same position and need to update SM OS on the StellarMate to 1.4. I'm still on 1.3 and this is probably the reason the tablet app isn't communicating.

From the control centre choose Network, and then add a DNS entry. For me, I have to do this each time I restart.

EDIT: I added a DNS entry to my wi-fi Network Connection entry for my router's wi-fi and this solved the connectivity, and is persistent.

"was there a green LED next to StellarMate?"... No there isn't. I see the what should be green (it's gray/white, but it has the correct IP under the name stellarmate)

"For the scope, did you try to see if there are in the dropdown list?" If you click the drop down it just has:
Search...
Default X (X being your check)

FYI, if you use the Android Back button too many times and leave the app. You can't rejoin. If you try you'll get the "Establishing Connection" spin message.
Do it again and you'll have 2 "Establishing Connection" spins
Do it again and you'll have 3 "Establishing Connection" spins
Do it again and you'll have 4 "Establishing Connection" spins
etc.

There seems to be an issue with your latest OS 1.4 Jasem. When starting up, it stops stating there's an error: Driver 'sdhost-bcm2835' is already registered, aborting…
Then you can only enter commands at the built in BusyBox Shell command prompt: (initramfs)

Keld,

Are you sure? I just checked and it's fine. The sdhost-bcm2835 message can be safely ignored. Maybe try to check the SD card and burn the image again? Did you verify the md5sums?

I'm 99,8% sure, it starts up, shows the four raspberries plus driver error, then the Stellarmate galaxy then it stops with the error message only leaving me with an option to type help at the BusyBox command prompt.
I've burnt the image twice, same result.
The MD5Sum does not match, mine says bd8e0112c0586c69e210540844f44227, you have listed 572a6efa3586d1236b5f2c86516d92c8 on Stellarmate.com (have you updated it with the new MD5sum?).
I noticed that the SD card has three partitions, boot partition (199MB), primary (5,32GB) and not allocated (8,98GB), that's different from the latest versions where all available space is allocated.
