Linux headers. Unable to locate package

Recommended Posts


Im trying to install a driver for a usb wifi dongle.

Im getting the error below.

Can I compile the driver with the older linux-header?

Is there somewhere where I can get the current linux-headers?


I tried adding --kernelsourcedir but it keeps asking for the same version.

I used armbian-config to install the headers and source


Kernel upgrades are frozen due to hardware

You need the kernel headers matching your kernel version. Older headers will not work.

However we  had (have?) some issues with the repository so you may need to switch to a different kernel version which also has the matching headers in the repo.

Will this version have headers bookworm_edge_6.6.9

I don't know. You can check by yourself  (something like apt-cache search linux*current-rockchip64)

an I update to the 6.1.70 via CLI

Well that would rather be a downgrade than an upgrade :D

Anyway while switching kernel again would work the module you want to build and need the headers for will not.

How do I execute this command to import python module?


// this is necessary for oragepi5
sed -i '31i MODULE_IMPORT_NS(VFS_internal_I_am_really_a_filesystem_and_am_NOT_a_driver);' os_dep/linux/os_intfs.c
