I’m back working with the omega2s and I’d love to get the upgrade to the latest openwrt done as a part of that work. Is there any timeline on an official update to a newer openwrt?
I see a 21.02 branch of openwrt on GitHub, https://github.com/OnionIoT/source/tree/openwrt-21.02-dev, is this planned for release in the near future? I went and upgraded some tool revs, like node, and now the 18.06 image isn't able to build as the node rev is too old.
Is 21.02 usable? Stable? Planned for release soon?
There are some ble dongles but ble5 is hard to come by. The nrf52840 is a great chip for ble5 and can do so at a lower cost than a usb dongle.
Concept would be a board with:
Thoughts, interest? If there is interest I’d look at a crowdsupply project.
Does the PIC approach support regular Canbus or does it also support CANFD?
I'm looking to see what the best non-usb approach might be for adding can bus support to an Omega2 system. It looks like SPI is out due to the full duplex issue, serial via slcan looks like an option as does the PIC approach as well? For CANFD I was wondering if using a SAM21 micro as the controller could work but I'm not sure if slcan supports canfd (or if it has to).
Or is the usb approach really the only way to go with canfd on the Omega2?
The usb option could work but I'm interested in pcb integrated options for mechanical and cost savings. Something that could live on other busses like SPI, I2C etc but that would have integrated support in the kernel through bluez.
Onion publishes https://hub.docker.com/r/onion/omega2-source but this container hasn't been updated for several months, it looks like prior to the upgrade to LEDE 18.
Any plans to publish a newer container? I'd rebuild the container here but I can't find the originating Dockerfile so maybe it was built manually??
@zedf yep, building on windows works but it sounds like Linux and macOS it doesn’t. I thought docker was supposed to be the same across all OSes? There must be some differences. Would be great if it worked on mac and Linux.
I was able to build the image, I think with the docker container on OS X after disabling mosquitto or something like that. At least I’m almost certain I could build a full image...
