This blog post explains my experiences with C.H.I.P. - the World’s First $9 Computer.

Manually configure Wi-Fi from command line

See https://docs.getchip.com/chip.html#wifi-connection

Install TINC on C.H.I.P.

Based on the instructions at https://github.com/gmacario/tinc-ninuxto/blob/master/configuring-tinc-ninuxto-on-udoobuntu2.md

Logged as chip@chip, change default password for user chip, then configure hostname (let us choose chipgm34 in our example)

password chip
echo "chipgm32" | sudo tee /etc/hostname
sudo vi /etc/hosts      (Replace occurrences of old hostname with new)

Update installed Debian packages, then reboot to activate the changes

sudo apt update && sudo apt -y dist-upgrade
sudo reboot

As soon as the host is up and running, remote login via SSH as chip@chipgm32, then install TINC and other required pacakges

sudo apt -y install git rsync tinc

Clone the “gmacario/tinc-ninuxto” repository from GitHub

mkdir -p ~/MYGIT &&  cd ~/MYGIT
[ ! -e tinc-ninuxto ] && git clone https://github.com/gmacario/tinc-ninuxto

Create the local TINC configuration

cd ~/MYGIT/tinc-ninuxto && git pull --all --prune && \
  sudo mkdir -p /etc/tinc/ninuxto/hosts/ && \
  sudo rsync -avz hosts/ /etc/tinc/ninuxto/hosts/

Customize TINC configuration files starting from some templates

sudo cp ~/MYGIT/tinc-ninuxto/sample-tinc.conf /etc/tinc/ninuxto/tinc.conf
sudo vi /etc/tinc/ninuxto/tinc.conf      (Adjust Name="chipgm32")
sudo cp ~/MYGIT/tinc-ninuxto/sample-tinc-up /etc/tinc/ninuxto/tinc-up
sudo vi /etc/tinc/ninuxto/tinc-up        (Choose an available IP Address according to the table at README.md)
sudo chmod 755 /etc/tinc/ninuxto/tinc-up
sudo cp ~/MYGIT/tinc-ninuxto/sample-tinc-down /etc/tinc/ninuxto/tinc-down
sudo vi /etc/tinc/ninuxto/tinc-down      (Everything should be OK, but double check)
sudo chmod 755 /etc/tinc/ninuxto/tinc-down

Create a public/private key pair if they do not exist

sudo -i sh -c "[ ! -e /etc/tinc/ninuxto/rsa_key.priv ] && /usr/sbin/tincd -n ninuxto -K4096"

Accept the suggested paths where to save private and public RSA key.

Submit a Pull Request to https://github.com/gmacario/tinc-ninuxto with the following changes:

  • A new line in the table at README.md to mark the IP address you chose for your node
  • Your public key /etc/tinc/ninuxto/hosts/chipgm32 saved under hosts/

After the PR is merged, update the gmacario/tinc-ninuxto repository in all your peer nodes (i.e. tincgw21, rpi3gm23) to make sure the new node is recognized.

Test connectivity to tinc-ninuxto

Try connecting to TINC network ninuxto

sudo tincd -n ninuxto --no-detach -d7
Automatically start tinc at boot

Type the following commands to have TINC network ninuxto active at boot:

echo "ninuxto" | sudo tee -a /etc/tinc/nets.boot
sudo service tinc restart

Install Docker on TINC

See https://blog.hypriot.com/post/docker-supported-on-chip-computer/

If you would like to use Docker as a non-root user, you should now consider
adding your user to the "docker" group with something like:

  sudo usermod -aG docker your-user

Remember that you will have to log out and back in for this to take effect!

NOTE: The message above modprobe: FATAL: Module aufs not found. should be harmless as Docker engine is using the overlay2 Storage Driver:
