OpenPLi 6.2 release

-Build from OpenPLi git source develop branch
-GCC 6.3.0
-GLIBC 2.25
-GStreamer 1.14.2
-Python 2.7.13
-Some big binaries compressed with UPX (Ultimate Packer for eXecutables)
-Removed lots of python source files from the image
-Dedicated feed server

The box has about 6.4MB free after a virgin install, it's enough to run a softcam, and some other small plugins.
Plugins not installed in default image: samba-base.
Keep in mind the free space is limited and don't go wild on installing plugins.
See Releasenotes for more info.

I think if you did try to do some searching you could have found that the wifi modules for the SR4 are not installed by default, all you need to do is:
opkg update
opkg install kernel-module-r8712u
opkg install firmware-rtl8712u

I know this, but it does not work.
So please tell me the extra steps for this 6.2 release to get it working.

It does work, I tested it on my DM800SR4. Whats not working for you ?
Can you see the wlan adapter in Setup - System - Expert settings - Network ?
I know there are 2 types of wifi adapters used in the boxes with build in wifi, but I don't recall which is the other one.
If you have another working image, have a look which wifi driver is installed.
If you can't figure this out yourself, post the output of lsmod and lsusb in a telnet console. Something like this:
Code:

opkg update
opkg install kernel-module-rtl8192cu
opkg install firmware-rtl8192cu

When using this image, the wlan adapter is not visible in Setup - System - Expert settings - Network.
Tried the installation of rtl8712 and rtl8192cu. Still not visible.

In the previous releases the wlan adapter is visible and working.

I installed 'kernel-module-rt2800usb'

Now the adapter is found

I need to install 'linux-firmware-2800usb' next to get the adapter working but I cannot find it in the feed ?

After a lot of searching I managed to find the linux-2800usb-drivers somewhere else (2870 drivers from the feed do not work). With these drivers + kernel for rt2800usb the wifi is found and can be activated on open unprotected wifi networks.
As soon as encryption is used, it does not connect anymore.

In the meantime tested on 3 different dm800se sim2 boxes, all same problem. When using 6.1 release of gjstroom, the wifi is immediately detected and working without any problems.
