So how does one know or figure out the correct dtb file to copy up to /boot/dtb.img ? Is it purely trial and error? I'm using this build: Armbian_5.44_S9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_mate_20180515.img. I've modprobe xyz about everything i could find under /lib/modules/3.14.29/kernel/drivers/amlogic/wifi but no wlan0 i/f will show up. Some of these KLMs will load and show with lsmod, but no wifi. I'm motivated to make a donation armbian.com to get the wifi working on this box. It's the only 8 core box I know for under $100 so this is a great platform to support.
Fwiw, I had to use the 3.x kernel to get the mecool bb2 pro s912 to boot. This build: Armbian_5.44_S9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_mate_20180515.img But no wifi KLM is loaded for the wireless hardware. Maybe I need to try another dtb file in that build.
I have a mecool bb2 pro which is a powerful 8 core s912 box. I'm using it for real-time FFMPEG transcoding and re-streaming and it's able to do this for HD with this number of core w/o GPU. The problem I have is I need to make the wifi work on this box. The install of Armbian is not finding the wifi hardware and installing drivers. I tried the methods at the top of this post for wifi and none of them work on this box. Maybe I need to build drivers for it myself? Does anyone know the wifi chip used on the mecool bb2 pro and/or if there is a way to detect and dump that info from Armbian command line tools?
