  1. Solved - Can threads be marked "Solved"? Facts: - kernel headers appear to be generally incomplete, upstream also. I ran into this exact same error: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1758710 - lot of obsolete information - old kernels - armbian-config fails to install headers - No correct linux-headers version available for download. linux-headers generated by build incomplete, wrong $ARCH. - ./compile.sh INSTALL_HEADERS=yes does install headers, but issues (forum search) due to WIREGUARD - ./compile.sh INSTALL_HEADERS=yes WIREGUARD=no is required for proper he
  2. @IgorDo what I do: ignore idiots, "ready, aim, fire" as opposed to "fire, aim, ready" once the target is properly identified as an idiot. Your frustration and all the time / energy you waste is due the ignoring the reality of humanity: 5% criminals, 90% followers (idiots), 5% leaders. Which is best: shutting down the forum because YOU are annoyed with reality, or, ignoring time wasters? Be aware the the corporations / individuals who are able / choose to pay 10K for support do so because of Armbian excellence which is a product of understanding / dealing with / solving
  3. "and why" because this is a "help" forum and, every answered question eliminates it being asked again and contributes to excellence. Just today, my WiFI patch helped two people who didn't have to annoy you by asking. Please keep your "bad day" to yourself and don't call a professional evaluation and thank you for the excellence of Armbian and developers "BS".
  4. Gents; I am working from git source: https://github.com/150balbes/Build-Armbian .. following latest instructions. Repeat Build Options [ ./compile.sh BOARD=aml-s9xxx BRANCH=current RELEASE=bionic BUILD_MINIMAL=no BUILD_DESKTOP=no KERNEL_ONLY=no KERNEL_CONFIGURE=no ] It was a simple question: how to use linux-headers from released build system, hoping someone has run into this already. @SteeManappears to suggest if I work with dev as opposed to current, headers may be OK. Maybe so, but hard to get repeatable builds at bleeding edge, so, I w
  5. Hi Folks; (Tanix TX92) uname -a: Linux aml-s9xxx 5.5.1-aml-s9xxx #trunk SMP PREEMPT Thu Apr 9 17:54:57 EDT 2020 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux I need kernel headers to build some out of tree kernel modules such as openvfd but have been stuck for several days. Research / experience has shown that: - lot of obsolete information - old kernels - armbian-config fails to install headers - No correct linux-headers version available for download - ./compile.sh INSTALL_HEADERS=yes does install headers, but issues (forum search) due to WIREGUARD
  6. Tanix TX92 Wife tired of looking at "boot" Would appreciate instructions how to integrate https://github.com/arthur-liberman/linux_openvfd/tree/master/driver either using Build-Armbian or target compile. armbian-config install kernel headers not working... Thanks; Bill
  7. whoohoo!! solved: No Wifi Tanix TX92 I did all the heavy lifting on this. Please incorporate changes in build (if you want), including the firmware patch from https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-wireless/msg190482.html to patch/kernel/aml-s9xxx-current/qca9377_hw1.1.patch on target: hint: https://github.com/erstrom/linux-ath/issues/9 cd /tmp; git clone -b bd-sdmac https://github.com/erstrom/ath10k-firmware.git mkdir /lib/firmware/ath10k; cp -rf ath10k-firmware/QCA9887/ /lib/firmware/ath10k cp /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/
