USB DVB-T kernel module missing on Rock64

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have a Rock64 V2 which I am using as a Tvheadend server, among other stuff. For some months I put the kernel/dtb packages on hold, because I discovered that linux-image-rockchip64 after version 5.75 did not include the kernel module for th USB DVB-T stick I need (an EyeTV DVB-T device, i.e. a clone of Hauppauge), that is dvb-usb-dib0700 or the like (I am trying to remember).

 

I have recently unhold the Linux packages and let apt to update them. Now at version 5.90, I see that the kernel module is still not included, and my USB device cannot be used. Going back to Linux image 5.75 makes the stick to work again, but I'd like to have the latest versions running.

 

Questions:

 

1) Am I missing an extra package?

 

2) How can I get back on driver? (Well, a third one would be why it has been removed from the latest versions)

 

Thanks!

Do investigation of those two files:

https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/config/kernel/linux-rockchip64-default.config

https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/config/kernel/linux-rockchip64-dev.config

And when you figure out which modules are missing, send a PR. Like this one:
https://github.com/armbian/build/pull/1441

OK, I've checked them and apparently in commit 58725209d970c98489a4ee5cdf085a80347c5d47, in linux-rockchip64-default.config, CONFIG_DVB_USB_DIB0700=m was removed for reasons I haven't investigated yet (although it seems it's coming from a sync with ayufan's branch) , hence the kernel module went out of the package.

 

It will take some time on my side to submit a proper pull request, as I am not particularly fluent in rebuilding the kernel, nor in managing Git contributions.

 

Thank you for your support, Igor.
