Hi BPI team,
Would it be possible to release the drivers for the BPI-M3 hardware (wifi, bluetooth, etc) separately instead of packaged together in the images that you’re releasing?
This would be extremely useful if folks (like me) want to install a base linux image and customize it for their needs instead of installing the super-sized desktop images that you’ve been releasing for the BPI-M3.
If this is not possible then I’d like to understand why and what help would you need to make this happen.
yes ,we have support all deb file. you can do image by youself.
all wifi ,BT and etc dirver all in those deb file.
it is your need.???
Thanks for the quick reply! Yes I think that works but I’ll try and confirm once I get it working.
My idea is to install a base Ubuntu 16.04 and install these drivers. Any recommendations on how to proceed? Thanks
yes, when we finished all image , we will support base ubuntu and debaian os, so everyone can easy do theyself image ,add what they wanted.
Aha When are you planning on having that done?
we do it now ,but need some time. you also can study our bpi-tools , we support many tools .it maybe useful for you.
That’s great to hear, let us know when you have updates.
I forget, which arch is the BPI-M3: armhf (32-bit hard-float ARMv7) or arm64 (64-bit ARM)?
