Building kernel modules in armbian?
Newbie to tinker here (though not to linux).. tried lots of images out and the armbian ones were the ones i liked best at the moment. Unfortunately not all my USB hardware is supported so I thought I'd try and build the missing modules. (It's a wacom tablet I want to use, supported perfectly in most recent mainstream linuxes.)
That's where I got stuck. Is it possible? closest i found in the docs was
which starts (quote)
armbian-config -> install kernel headers
I'd love to install kernel headers That's usually one of the first packages I install. But that's not a bash command with the -> thing unless > is a strange command line switch and not a redirect , also
$ sudo armbian-config
doesn't give me the option to install kernel headers and I tried every menu item! And the most obvious attempt
$ sudo apt-get install linux-headers
gives me a list of available packages, but apparently I need to specify the kernel version, and
$ uname -r
tells me my kernel is 4.4.73-rockchip
which isn't one of the ones supported. So I am stuck. Can anyone help?
