Ans: it's implement from ubuntu 14.04 LTS image, because it's no long-term support for ubuntu 15.04, so default setting without GPU and VPU support.
You mean, that I should use 14.04 image to have G/VPU support right?
2. Ability to control wifi via drivers (I want to be able to host wifi AP using inbuilt wifi).
Ans: it's already support on our new kernel 3.14.52, you can change the kernel image manual or waiting for our new release.
3. Ability to have full standard linux driver pack. I mean, why I can download ubuntu to my PC, plug in TV tuner and it gets detected, and why when I plug this TV tuner into my wandboard I have to recompile whole kernel, have hard time with boot loader and other unhappy things. I just don't have that much time to spare.
Ans: What's your tuner chip? if you don't like recompile your kernel, you can compile to a kernel module and insert it, more detail you can refer http://sdr.osmocom.org/trac/wiki/rtl-sdr , some tuner's driver is written from me, and I test these tuner on embedded board many years ago, so I think it's not a big problem.
Tuner is Avermedia Volar HD, but it's only one example.
4. Ability to switch my console output to LAN using uEnv.txt and not recompiling whole bootloader for it, like I did it here.
5. Ability to boot board in headless mode.
6. Ability to set HDMI video mode via uEnv.txt without patching and recompiling kernel and likes.
Ans: uEnv.txt is no need to recompile the source including change the HDMI video mode, console output, you can check the load uEnv.txt is success or failed on u-boot.
I DO NOT ( (((( ) have ability to check my console output, because I guess my board came with defunct RS232 port. If there is a way to redirect console to USB OTG it would be good. I was using netconsole (see link in above post), but it was very inconvinient, cause system refused to boot if terminal (the machine that received console messages) was not found.
7. I would really like to have ONE place to look for all source links: kernel, uboot, wandboard patches and likes. Right now there is bunch of scattered and mostly outdated information that does not cooperate
with each other. I mean: even if I DO decide to compile kernel and use it, I have to try multiple sources and configurations just to find one that works.
Ans: all source on the github.....
Yeah, that's the core problem, there are million of sources and forks on github. It would be real nice to have
something like this in instructions.
Anyway, thank you for your response, of course we have many things need to improve.
