Hello @Jackzeng,

Why there is no new kernel 4.x supported for Ubuntu release ?

Thanks, Kiran.


(ZB) #3

Hello, thanks for your advice, kernel 4.x still being developed,next week I probably release a demo image with kernel 4.x to you.

Hi @Jackzeng,

I did below configuration to my current setup and now able to discover the SSID of HOTSPOT.

load_modules()
{
  case ${BOARD} in
  bpi-m3)
    modprobe bcmdhd
    ;;
  bpi-m64)
    modprobe bcmdhd op_mode=2 firmware_path=/lib/firmware/ap6212/fw_bcm43438a1.bin
    #modprobe bcmdhd
    ;;

And I want to connect back to other network it doesn’t allow as below.

pi@bpi-iot-ros-ai:~$ nmcli con down id "newnet"
Connection 'newnet' successfully deactivated (D-Bus active path: /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/13)

pi@bpi-iot-ros-ai:~$ nmcli con up id "FAB_PF"

pi@bpi-iot-ros-ai:~$ nmcli con up id "Fabritronix"

How to configure such that I can switch back and forth between HOTSPOT to other network ?

Thanks, Kiran.


(Kiran Patil) #5

I will check with new image tomorrow or next week Monday and will report.

Our requirement is we should be able to switch between HOTSPOT and other network as it happens in our Ubuntu desktop (16.04).

Thanks, Kiran.

Hi.

Could you provide the Google Drive Link. I don´t have a Baidu account and it’s very difficult to create one since I don´t have a chinese mobl number.

Kind regards.

Hi, I’m also interested in the 4.x kernel for Ubuntu. When will it be ready?
