BananaPi BPI-M2Z(H2+) New Image Raspbian & Ubuntu Release 2018-07-09



Could you please make a build with Raspbian Stretch Lite? Also, what can I do to get the ethernet port to show when I run ifconfig?

Thank you.

Hello, I am preparing to release some other images in few days;

did you mean “ifconfig” in terminal?

I think you could use root user to execute ifconfig in terminal.

[BPI-M2+] New image: Android 7.0 (Version:V1)

I don’t see the eth0 interface when I run ifconfig in terminal, only wlan0.

Hello, Thanks for this OS, i use raspbian on my banana pi zero M2 (H2+) and it works great. Except for the wifi that i had to set up manualy with this :

MY QUESTION is about creating an hostpot with it. I use Raspap (wget -q -O /tmp/raspap && bash /tmp/raspap).

All the installation works great, the configuration web page at also works but no WIFI is available using my surrounding devices… Any idea? :frowning:

BananaPi BPI-P2 Zero(H2+ with POE) Ubuntu server & raspbian images release 2019-01-16

Hi, Jack! Ubuntu Mate is good! But is good for something more powerful than Zero, with more RAM and… more stable HDMI and more advanced GPU. For this kind of device I need an image of Ubuntu 16.04 but without desktop. So my question - is there such image? I’m developing a PCB for a robot based on ROS. My PCB is designed for use with Raspberry Pi Zero, but I was disappointed with its weakness. And I bought Bpi Zero, because it have the same size, same GPIO pinout and can run Ubuntu, for which I wrote all my software. But Mate is too heavy, I need a clean image without desktop.
