7 5747
Hi,

thanks for your great work.
I got an banana pi pro at xmas, so now I played a little bit with it, and Bananian rocks,

but for the pro boad the ap6210 driver for wlan is missing.

So I will start a cross-compile seassion for this driver, and it would be very nice if this module will be provided at the next update for bananian.

regards

Robert
Hi,

there will be a minor(?) update soon. It's already in our GitHub.

follow this howto:
http://wiki.lemaker.org/Building_u-boot,_script.bin_and_linux-kernel#Building_the_kernel

But clone my repository instead of LeMakers.

Thanks!
But I have a problem =>
  1. 1 root@bananapi ~ # make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihf- sun7i_defconfig
  2. make: *** No rule to make target `sun7i_defconfig'.  Stop.
Copy the Code
Can you upload the new image with the new kernel please ?

no problem

Go to the following url and download the kernel archive:
https://dl.bananian.org/kernel-snapshots/

The name indicates which kernel you have to choose:
bpi = Banana Pi (and BPI-R1)
bpro = Banana Pro
The long hex number is the git commit. Compare to https://github.com/Bananian/linux-bananapi/commits/bananapi-3.4

Extract all files from "kernel" to the FAT partition and all files and folders from "rootfs" to you root filesystem. Then add ap6210 to your /etc/modules and configure Wifi as described here: https://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/HowToUse#Command_Line
You have to install all required packages first. Don't know which these are? See https://dev.bananian.org/view.php?id=47

Hi,
i'm not so experienced with linux permits and i think to have some problem with it.
I'm working on debian system.
I downloaded and expanded the zip file in a new directory and when i move the kernel directory to the sd all it was ok.
when i tried to move the rootfs directory to the sd it seems impossible.
i can't modify nothing in this partition.
Some suggestion?

thanks Simone
