Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

  • Solution

Userland (apt, packages, etc.) is all Debian (or Ubuntu, depending on what you install).  Armbian is focused on low level stuff particular to these little boards (boot, kernel, dtb, firmware, etc.).


So, I imagine you would have to petition some Debian maintainer, or the ksmbd project directly?


I am Debian user, but still not to the point of packaging, yet.  I suppose it's only a matter of time...  But I digress.


Anyway, that might take a while.  In the meantime you could build it yourself, looks like...

There are a few, like Armbian particular tools for instance:

Also I noticed, while poking around in Armbian repositories it seems we package our (hardware specific) kernels, U-Boot, and some other things as Debian packages.  Which I think is a quite good idea, although I could see how it might lead to some confusion as in the case of your OP.


But other than those few things above which are particular to hardware or the Armbian project itself, all the other packages are just straight from vanilla Debian (or Ubuntu) repos.  Which to me is one of the great strengths of Armbian.

Just make something like https://github.com/armbian/build/pull/3232 Such things are accepted without questions asked. 

Yeah, I'll try making a PR.

it's meaningless to add ksmbd or ntfs3 to kernel, due to userspace tools are not ready for debian. espicailly for ntfs3, no userspace tool.


even armbian added, you still can't use them.

We'll use the old ways

make time
