What would be the last version? how to compile the drivers to support kernel upgrade?

Hello all. I`ve made a review video about the Banana Pi M2 Zero with this distro.

Here it is, I hope you`ll like it. Thank you, greetings. NicoD

Thank you for the img. It has been the most stable GUI one I’ve used so far.

I’m however having no luck in getting external USB wireless adapters to load. lsusb shows them, but the modules are not present.

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8812 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8812AU 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN Adapter Bus 001 Device 003: ID 148f:7601 Ralink Technology, Corp. MT7601U Wireless Adapter

Do you know where I can go to find/build the modules for these devices on your image?

Hello,You could build your own kernel to support this, Here is Bpi_Zero BSP code:

After you built it,I will tell you how to update your image.

Thank you, Ill look into that and let you know.

So what is the SU pass?? Why is LOCKED?? why is there no accesible GRUB ?It is usseless system when i cant even go to internet without su pass… wtf! what a jocke!

Beautiful OS, however, after one upgrade, memory consumption went up to 200MB SWAP and 400MB of RAM. Continuous disk access, system slow down, mouse unresponsive, wifi deactivates intermittently… Not sure what’s going on, but I would suggest a more lightweight approach than mate (try Lubuntu).
