Unable to install linux headers on latest bionic nightlies


Recommended Posts

Hello. I want to test wireguard with the bionic nightlies on my OrangePi Plus 2e, but I'm unable to install the correct linux headers.


In armbian-config, it show the "loading kernel modules" and the installing screen 2 times for a second, then goes back to the main screen.


If I want to install with "sudo apt install linux-headers, it shows these possible options:


  linux-headers-udoo 5.52.180715
  linux-headers-sun8i 5.52.180715
  linux-headers-sun7i 5.52.180715
  linux-headers-rockchip 5.50.180630
  linux-headers-odroidxu4 5.52.180715
  linux-headers-odroidc1 5.52.180715
  linux-headers-next-udoo 5.52.180715
  linux-headers-mvebu 5.52.180715
  linux-headers-cubox 5.52.180715
  linux-headers-4.15.0-1011-raspi2 4.15.0-1011.12
  linux-headers-4.15.0-1013-raspi2 4.15.0-1013.14
  linux-headers-4.15.0-1012-raspi2 4.15.0-1012.13
  linux-headers-4.15.0-24-generic-lpae 4.15.0-24.26
  linux-headers-4.15.0-24-generic 4.15.0-24.26
  linux-headers-4.15.0-23-generic-lpae 4.15.0-23.25
  linux-headers-4.15.0-23-generic 4.15.0-23.25
  linux-headers-4.15.0-22-generic-lpae 4.15.0-22.24
  linux-headers-4.15.0-22-generic 4.15.0-22.24
  linux-headers-4.15.0-1010-raspi2 4.15.0-1010.11
  linux-headers-4.15.0-20-generic-lpae 4.15.0-20.21
  linux-headers-4.15.0-20-generic 4.15.0-20.21


As the kernel on the current bionic nightly is 4.18.0-rc4-sunxi, i tried the linux-headers-sun8i, but wireguard-dkms states, that Module build for kernel 4.18.0-rc4-sunxi was skipped since the kernel headers for this kernel does not seem to be installed.

Development (things are changing all the time) automated builds could be/are partially or fully broken for many reasons. If something doesn't work, you are on your own to fix. A similar notice was written in red text when you first log in to this system.

What to do to save time and get things done? Get build tools and make your own NEXT (4.17.y) Stretch build and enable headers in a build config prior to starting. Also stay away from Bionic if you don't want to deal with irrelevant userspace bugs during your mission. Canonical still needs months to make this build stable.
