armbian-firmware-full vs armbian-firmware

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm building my own kernels but just wanted to know what the difference is between armbian-firmware-full vs armbian-firmware? Which packages should I be installing after building custom kernels?

 

armbian-config_5.98_all.deb

armbian-firmware_5.98_all.deb

armbian-firmware-full_5.98_all.deb

linux-dtb-next-sunxi64_5.98_arm64.deb

linux-headers-next-sunxi64_5.98_arm64.deb

linux-image-next-sunxi64_5.98_arm64.deb

linux-source-next-sunxi64_5.98_all.deb

armbian-firmware = minimal blobs that are needed that on-board wireless function + few popular ones = https://github.com/armbian/firmware 

- full = + everything else https://kernel.googlesource.com/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git

 

You can install one of those, while source package, headers and armbian-config are optional. Also armbian-firmware if your will not be running any wireless.

Kernel = image + dtb package. Those are the core.
