This is “How to use 6LoWPAN(IPv6 over Bluetooth) on VMware Player Ubuntu LTS image”. 6LoWPAN is already included in linux kernel tree(net/bluetooth/6lowpan.c), and Nordic nRF51 IoT SDK is using Raspbian kernel for Raspberry Pi Linux kernel 3.17.4 as IPv6 gateway, but hardware(RPi) is needed if want to try the 6LoWPAN. so I build lastest Linux kernel 3.18.4 for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and use VMware Player instead of the Raspberry Pi. Even if you don’t have RPi, can use the 6LoWPAN!!
1. download the Ubuntu Linux VM player image from my website.
If want to build the linux kernel, check the “/boot/config-3.18.3” linux kernel build file. Maybe it’s easy to develop the linux 6lowpan kernel module by using the VM linux.
