  1. Well, I'm thinking if I can go that route. I did configured and complied my kernels long long time ago, but for the last 20 years I'm only programming microcontrollers and I'm not sure building it is my thing. In the meantim I have downloaded an ubuntu desktop image, it confirmed that from hardware point of view it works. I guess that use different structure and I can not just take the dtb file. The problem with an added wifi adaptor is that it would go through usb2 and for this one I need the throughput. If I do not know I can get it working, I do not continue with it. Than I rather get a PI4 and get a USB3-SATA interface. Thanks, JG
  2. Thanks!! How can I download that? Thanks again, JG
  3. I know it is not a good practice, but I did not have anything to loose, so I just tried to force the berry dtb file to be used. I gave small chance that it will work, but I did not think it will not boot at all. I think it also proves that it does use the ultra dtb file (I have overwritten that and only that).
  4. I have tried to rename sun8i-v40-bananapi-m2-berry.dtb to sun8i-r40-bananapi-m2-ultra.dtb, it does not boot any more :-)
  5. Thanks! I did overwrite the files, but it still does not work for me. BUT, I've noticed a problem I have overlooked! login as: root root@'s password: ____ ____ _ __ __ ____ _ _ | __ )| _ \(_) | \/ |___ \| | | | | _ \| |_) | | | |\/| | __) | | | | | |_) | __/| | | | | |/ __/| |_| | |____/|_| |_| |_| |_|_____|\___/ Welcome to Debian Stretch with Armbian Linux 5.1.12-sunxi System load: 0.29 0.24 0.13 Up time: 6 min Memory usage: 9 % of 998MB IP: Usage of /: 38% of 3.5G [ General system configuration (beta): armbian-config ] Last login: Tue Jul 9 20:02:38 2019 from root@bananapim2ultra:~# At the terminal, it says the host is BPI M2 Ultra, while it is not an Ultra, it is a Berry. For some reason it thinks it is an M2 Ultra, but it is an M2 Berry. How do you make it pulling the M2 Berry config? Thanks!!! JG
  6. Thank You for all your replies. I still try to understand some part of the dmesg, I also inspect the board under a microscope and try to run it from a 5.5-5.6V power supply, just to see maybe the voltage to the wifi interface is dropped on the board too much. JG
  7. YES! that does not give error message. " root@bananapim2ultra:~# modprobe brcmfmac root@bananapim2ultra:~# ifconfig" but, unfortunately I still have no wifi interface :-(
  8. This does not look good, but I do not know if it is a warning or is it blocking: "[ 3.663984] vcc-wifi: voltage operation not allowed" dmsg.txt
  9. In the meantime I just plugged a sata hdd and I can see it in the OMV menu. So that works, but wifi not. Thanks, JG
  10. Hello, I'm using Armbian_5.90_Bananapim2ultra_Debian_stretch_dev_5.1.12, which is offered as latest, but non supported download. I have used it a bit and installed OMV already, which seems to work fine (sata not tested yet), but I can not get wifi to work. wlan0 device does not exist. iwconfig says : root@bananapim2ultra:~# iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. dummy0 no wireless extensions. ifconfig does not bring up wireless interface at all. If I try to modprobe bcmdhd, ap6210, ap6212, it says : modprobe: FATAL: Module bcmdhd not found in directory /lib/modules/5.1.12-sunxi I did tried to search here, google it, saw modprobe on several places, but does not work for me. It does not exist in the library. Do you have a suggestion where to start? I would like to make a small mobile OMV server through mainly wifi from a sata hdd. Thanks a lot, JG
