Once you have your RPi2 up and running with Tizen, it is helpful to get network connectivity setup. This article is part of our series about Tizen on the Raspberry Pi 2, and this guide will describe how to enable WiFi on your RPi2. Doing this will make it much easier to work on the device because it will allow you to connect using ssh through your wireless network and access remote resources on the Internet. Get Familiar With the Hardware The procedure to enable WiFi on Tizen for Raspberry PI2 (Rpi2) is simple. You will first want to make sure Tizen detects your WiFi adapter. You can find it by running lsusb which will display all connected usb devices, including . My own RPi2 is using a Realtek device based on the RTL 8188CUS chipset:
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0bda:8176 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188CUS 802.11n WLAN Adapter
Once connected, it produces the following messages:
[ 2.787810] usb 1-1.4: new high-speed USB device number 6 using dwc_otg
[ 2.889252] usb 1-1.4: New USB device found, idVendor=0bda, idProduct=8176
[ 2.889265] usb 1-1.4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3

Once you’ve got Tizen running on your Raspberry PI 2 (RPi2) using the procedures described in Tizen on RPi2: Now Supporting 3D Acceleration, you will probably want to be able to dynamically add/remove packages. It’s a pain to be required to rebuild and flash your OS every time you want to change the included software, so following this tutorial will help make this much easier. This small tutorial shows how to install the smart tool that is shipped on Tizen, but is not installed by default. 1) Add Smart to the RPi2 Image The first step is to add the Smart Package Manager (python-smartpm) to the RPi2 Tizen image. This is the same package manager used on Yocto, and Tizen has its own patches for it. In order to install it, you should apply the following simple patch on your Tizen repository:
@@ -66,0 +67,2 @@ CORE_IMAGE_BASE_INSTALL += "gstreamer1.0-libav"
+# Package management
+CORE_IMAGE_BASE_INSTALL += "python-smartpm"
If you are unfamiliar with the patching […]
