I tried a few time to ping, but it looked ok. No packet losses.
I was curious too see how the installer script(s) looked liked and found a difference between the VLC radio script and the phat beat/spotipy in the check network section.
In VLC radio script it looks like this:
sudo ping -q -w 1 -c 1
ip r | grep default | cut -d ' ' -f 3 | head -n 1 &> /dev/null && return 0 || return 1
…but in the phat beat/spotipy script it looks like this:
sudo ping -q -w 10 -c 1 18.104.22.168 | grep “received, 0” &> /dev/null && return 0 || return 1
I don´t know exactly how this stuff works, but could it be so that the installer script doesn´t work since the adress where it y´should try to ping isn´t written out? Or does the VLC script get that data from somewhere else within the script?
