Specifying a kernel version when building an armbian image



Recommended Posts


I've previously build and deployed an armbian image for a pinecube using "bionic" which used kernel version 5.10.60. I have recently tried to build and deploy a new image, but the kernel is now 5.10.72 which wouldn't normally be a problem, but I have found that I've not been able to get gstreamer and some of it's dependacies installed.


Is it possible to specify a particular kernel version when I'm building an armbian image, in if so how do I do it?


Thanks in advance

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

When going through the menu you will be asked if you want to build from current or edge branch.

It is not possible for any board to get a specific kernel version since all need custom patches on top which would be impossible to maintain. Therefore the author of the Pinecube contribution limited his efforts to these two branches.  https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/config/boards/pinecube.csc

If the choice is not shown try using compile.sh with EXPERT=yes attached.
