BPI-R2 OpenWrt(LEDE) Souce code : 2018-04-11

Yeah, I wasn’t able to get LuCi to work either. :disappointed:

Something with the packages has to be changed, but dont know how and witch is the right one.

I spend a lot of time (the whole Day) to access SSH via WAN and install luci, both didnt work.

Hello! I’ve got my BPI-R2 few days ago, and installed OpenWrt (from google-drive-link)…

And have some question. How i can get packages which I need?.. (bash, screen, uhttpd or apache, rrdtools… …and other…) i do not see so many available packages for BPI-R2 OpenWrt((… but have 8Gb eMMC storage :confused: and a lot free space for packages…

And second question… in description OpenWrt have WIFI Support. But on my OpenWrt I dont see any wireless interfaces (I wish to see onboard wifi in ifconfig)… and no any words about wireless in ‘dmesg’… But on raspbian(debian9) internal wifi works well. My interfaces:

 root@BANANA-R2:~# ifconfig | grep -v "         " | grep -v '^$' |  awk '{print $1}'

Sorry if my question has answers above… But i did not found them.

Hello, Did you try “opkg update” and “opkg install luci” ?

Here is my luci page: image

hello, Please see this link: BPI-R2 new image: Ubuntu with Linux kernel 4.14 release V1.0 2018-4-28

it’s almost same ways to open AP mode. if you have any questions please let me know.

I think all knows how Luci looks like :slight_smile: and commands to install…
But our OpenWrt does not have repository with correct LuCI package;
can you show result of commands from your BPI-R2 with OpenWRT:

cat /proc/version    
cat /etc/opkg/*.conf

it more helps for all who want to install LuCI;

Thank you for your answer!

My OpenWRT:

root@BANANA-R2:~# cat /proc/version
Linux version 4.9.44 (gary@gary-HP-Z238-Microtower-Workstation) (gcc version 5.4.0 (LEDE GCC 5.4.0 r4768-b1d4a37) ) #0 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jan 10 17:09:53 2018

and it does not have commands from your link:

root@BANANA-R2:~# stp_uart_launcher
-ash: stp_uart_launcher: not found
root@BANANA-R2:~# which stp_uart_launcher

and there NO device /dev/wmtWifi

root@BANANA-R2:~# ls /dev/wmt*

Internal WIFI still not work;

Hello, Did you build-in “CONFIG_PACKAGE_wmt=y” in your “.config”?

you could see steps here:

I do not understand which about file do you write… (you did not write full path to .config)
and it difficulty to answer;

i write image: mtk-bpi-r2-EMMC.img directly to eMMC using dd (previosly booted from SD-card)…
mtk-bpi-r2-EMMC.img I downloaded here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1yEP6o3EGhICOV2DJRW-eqDg0vO_xK1Mg

no any configs I did not edited.

Can you tell where you get this image:
Linux version 4.14.36 (root@JackBpi) (gcc version 7.3.0 (OpenWrt GCC 7.3.0 r6767-50b0919)) #0 SMP PREEMPT Fri Apr 27 07:59:33 2018

or is it self compiled?

Hello, cement, this image is for my testing, I will show you Luci steps with this source code.

thank you…
but LuCI not important for me…
More important WIFI Support and and lot of available packages.
for now I can install only this packages:

1.make menuconfig

2.Choose Utilities->wmt


Sorry… may be I live in forest.:monkey:
I really do not understand how you got this window…
all my previously images i wrote using dd (it was ready images from other peoples… I did not compile myself any custom images before)

Hi cement, it’s not in image,

it’s in your source code project, you need compile by yourself.

see Gary’s infos at the beginning of this thread.

@Jackzeng, i have the same Problems as cement… I use Ubuntu 18.04 so i’d had first to download source package and an old lede image to compile first an image ? than activate Wifi and after that, install Luci from repo…

I have errors during compiling. Used the .config from here… Guys any solutions ? Thanks

Me too… :roll_eyes::disappointed_relieved:
