Everex Cloudbook wifid binary

by on Jul.29, 2008, under Linux

If you have a little trouble enabling the WLAN card on your Cloudbook, you can use this binary to activate the power button for it.

Copy it into /usr/bin, then create a script to activate the button at system boot:

Put the following script here: /etc/init.d/wifi_power

#! /bin/sh
setkeycodes 6d 112
nohup /usr/bin/wifid &
exit 0

now run this command
update-rc.d wifi_power defaults

Now, the power button for your WLAN card will work.

Here’s the wifid binary from the Cloudbook gOS recovery ISO.

Alternatively, you *could* just download the ISO from Everex…
