Anyone uses Banana Pi BPI-W2?


Banana Pi BPI-W2 looks perfect for a router. I'd love to buy it and have slackware on it. According to the documentation Banana Pi is among the compatible devices, but there are quite a few versions of Banana Pi, and I could not ascertain whether Banana Pi BPI-W2 is among them. Anyone could tell me? Anyone has this board?

Thanks,

Karl

Thanks

To summarize your answer, no, you don't own a BPI-W2, and slackware running on it is questionable at best.

I don't have BananaPi myself, but it doesn't look like Slackware supports BananaPi boards.

http://arm.slackware.com/supportedplatforms/
http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:har...llation_guides

They do support RaspberryPi boards though, perhaps one of those might work for you instead.

Thanks, yes, it looks like Slackware isn't going to run on this one. On this page http://arm.slackware.com/releases/ they mention Banana Pi (Original and Pro), but those must be different from the one I am eyeing (BPI-W2)

Kind-of but somebody else searched it out for you...

Pi 4 goes to 4G on RAM and the Zero is $5.00?
