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.

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

which board do you use?

could please you do “ifconfig” , “bpi-hw” and show me the log?

I will try the solution described here: Thank you anyway for supporting this board.

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:

Hello, Did you connect Antenna?

i do have en external antenna. I can surf on the internet well. what is sta, how do i check that?

Kill supplicant didnt work

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.

Hello, I will provide a ubuntu server 16.04 to you

Hi, Jack, I am a newbie for BPI-M2Z, and just had bought a OV5640 Camera module recently. But it seems not working well. My problem is at … 1. How to disable the auto-exposure 2. How to disable and enable the auto-focus function. and so many functions from V4L is not working on OV5640…

Thanks and best regards.
