Do I need to download drivers in ubuntu 18.04 to support the Sixfab module?
No driver installation required.
The Linux kernel can recognize Quectel modules.
You can use Ubuntu Core.
What does this comment mean then? :
I bought this hat to use with an rPi running latest Ubuntu server as a homeassistant / alarm system I’ve built running docker containers. I have zero knowledge which/any ppp/qmi interfaces I need and didn’t really gain much from the instructions beyond one being faster than the other… didn’t notice any OS requirements in the docs.
Do I need ppp/qmi?
Am I good with Ubuntu server 20.04 for rPi?
I’m using the USB cable - don’t plan to use UART. Only need to be able to put the modem into whatever mode ( ad hoc or AP? ) needed so it can act as an access point.
There’s been a misunderstanding.
I mean, We do not have experience with other OS, except Raspbian and Ubuntu Core, with RPI for now.
@ensar, I’ll try to get it installed… might use an OpenWRT container.
Can you point me to anything to clear up about ppp/qmi? Is it a dependency for using the hat via USB in a normal fashion?
