Bananian Linux for Banana Pi M2 - 2015-12-23 We are pleased to announce the availability of Bananian Linux 15.08 for Banana Pi M2!

Changes compared to the main Bananian image (M1, Pro, R1):

  • The bootloader (u-boot) has been replaced with this one: https://github.com/Bananian/SinoVoip-Mainline-uboot
  • Kernel 4.3.3 has been installed and Kernel 3.4.x has been removed
  • It is not possible to change the hardware platform (options have been removed from bananian-config) This is still a technical preview/beta although working very stable!

Does it include an OMAP-Driver for PowerVR?

I’ve tried this, but the wireless interface doesn’t work. It seems it’s v4 Kernel issue since older images work, but I either get sporadic reboots or I can’t get the wireless into Master mode.

I wonder if anyone know what debian based image (no GUI) is likely to yield the most success is going down the WirelessAP route?

(this all for a BPI-M2)
