Hi to all and congratulations for your great distribution!

Hi DomieMic65,

you have to modify the file "/etc/modprobe.d/disable_rpi3_wifi_bt.conf"
Code: Select all
##wifi
#blacklist brcmfmac
#blacklist brcmutil
##bt
#blacklist btbcm
#blacklist hci_uart


Code: Select all
##wifi
blacklist brcmfmac
blacklist brcmutil
##bt
#blacklist btbcm
#blacklist hci_uart


After this it is necessary to disable the wifi service
Code: Select all
systemctl disable netctl-auto@wlan0

and reboot.

Hi,

How do I access this file to edit?
I've created it on the sd card but to no avail.

Thanks

With WinSCP.
You must install it on your computer and gain access to the Raspberry
You must also use PuTTy to give the commands.

Ok I downloaded WinSCP.
Found RuneAudio IP
Login using standard ports
Login is "root"
PW is "rune"
Add code to the file as above.

Thanks

Hello
I'm hanging on to this post even though it's old
I would like to disable the wifi, I did the procedure above, but once I do the Reboot it restores the whole folder without the changes made and the wifi remains active.
Any ideas?

piero,

Changing the content of /etc/modprobe.d/disable_rpi3_wifi_bt.conf to:

##wifi
blacklist brcmfmac
blacklist brcmutil
##bt
blacklist btbcm
blacklist hci_uart

will disable wifi and bluetooth.
