Question

Armbianmonitor:

I am attempting to install the v4l2loopback module for my device (Le Potato running Armbian 22.02.1 Bullseye) and am running to some issues.

 

I installed linux-headers-5.10.102-meson64 since that matches the kernel image installed:

marc@lepotato:/usr/src$ dpkg -l |grep linux-image
ii  linux-image-current-meson64           22.02.1                         arm64        Linux kernel, armbian version 5.10.102-meson64 current
marc@lepotato:/usr/src$ dpkg -l |grep linux-headers
ii  linux-headers-current-meson64         22.02.1                         arm64        Linux kernel headers for 5.10.102-meson64 on arm64 current

 

But when I try and install the v4l2loopback-dkms package I get the following:

marc@lepotato:/usr/src$ sudo apt-get install v4l2loopback-dkms

Looking into the error logs I see:

I googled around for that error and found a lot of posts about it and found a suggested solution of downloading the module.lds file from git using:

 

sudo wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/torvalds/linux/master/scripts/module.lds.S -O /usr/src/[your linux header version here]/scripts/module.lds
sudo sed -i '$ d' /usr/src/[your linux header version here]/scripts/module.lds

 

but when I try and reinstall the v4l2loopback module after that I now get the following:

marc@lepotato:/usr/src$ sudo apt-get install v4l2loopback-dkms                                                       Reading package lists... Done

At this point I am stuck. Am I missing something obvious? Can someone point me in the right direction?

 

Thanks in advance!
