Currently for mvebu-next is the same, latest headers are missing.

 

Is there any chance that at some point for every linux-image package release on the armbian repo we can find the corresponding linux-headers package ?

 

You can't request to every user to go build their own armbian image in order to get the right headers to compile something.

 

Honestly it's quite frustrating. @Igor could you please push in the armbian repo the latest mvebu-next headers ?

Why should I solve every problem that pops out?? Solving this problem requires costly manual intervention(s) or costly coding to limit manual interventions. None of that is available.

It is frustrating indeed.

Anyone (trustworthy) can prepare it:
https://github.com/armbian/upload

and start to take care of this problem in general.

I'm not arguing your limited bandwidth. My point is that whenever you trigger you process of uploading the linux-image to the dpkg repo, I would have imagined that it should come along to also upload the linux-headers since it is also part of the build output.

Sure. But seems a bit strange that published linux-headers would be built on another machine than the one that build the kernel. Just for the sake of consistency.

 

Is there a piece of script somewhere that you use to automatize the build and publish flow. I mean something that we can help contributing ?

I am only interested in solving this problem in general - if I find some time. Until then it's in users domain.

Repository https://github.com/armbian/upload shows which packages are in the repository. You upload them in the same location as they come from the build script and script do the rest. This service is as is. I am not changing MO. I can only stop doing this.
