Mediatek drivers

Postby AndrewDB » Wed Nov 21, 2012 11:32 pm

The UG007 uses a Mediatek MT5931 chip for wifi and Mediatek has not published their driver source code.
Ditto for Bluetooth, the UG007 uses a Mediatek MT6622 and again, no source code.
So right now I could get Ubuntu Linux running on the UG007, but it would require at least an extra wifi dongle to be usable.

(If you think this post is similar to the one I posted about the MX1, well, it's not a coincidence: both the MX1 and the UG007 share exactly the same hardware specs, as far as I can see).

are mediatek required to release driver source as part of GPL or are they considered proprietary?

I tried to write here about the publication of drivers for MT5931 + MT6622, but to me didn't answer.
Maybe somebody else will try? "Little strokes fell great oaks".
