0000012: Kernel Update Script and other stuff as an apt repository
See topic, would it be possible to add that stuff to a repository?
Reason why I'm asking this is because I currently have a working banana pi "cluster" up and running which is based on a vanilla debian testing/unstable and is managed via puppet.

I have no intention to ever flash a whole system to the pi, where someone else made some "undocumented" configs or changes.

But an apt overlay providing bpi specific libraries / kernel would be cool.

This would also benefit everyone who rather likes to have ubuntu as a base, but automatic kernel updates and hw libs. [^]

In fact, it would be very nice to have deb package for kernel install/update and have the update script in a dpkg pre install or post install script.
Il would also be very nice to have kernel headers in that repository to allow automatic recompilation of custom kernel modules using dkms.

Note that I did not achieve to completly build a working package for the current bananian kernel headers : the scripts (/usr/src/linux-headers-3.4.90+/scripts) are not compile to arm but x86-64 but the rest is fine. I think it is related to that bug [^]

The repository is now set up.
For details check: [^]

We will now start moving everything to the repository starting with OMD ( [^]) und Linux kernel headers.

When I try to compile my module I get error:

Which kernel version are you using? Try this one: [^]

The Bananian 15.01 kernel is not compatible to the actual kernel headers deb!
2015-03-10 23:46   
OK. I used your kernel snapshot (3.4.104+ #4 SMP PREEMPT Thu Mar 5 11:25:28 CET 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux) on Banana Pro and I got the same error.

We updated our kernel headers package.
Can you please update using our testing repository or by direct download: [^]

Is the error fixed?

edit: updated the package again

2015-03-11 15:03   
I used package from direct link. I removed old and installed your 1.2_armhf (before I have 1.0_armhf).

Now I get simplier error:

scripts/basic/fixdep: 1: scripts/basic/fixdep: Syntax error: end of file unexpected (expecting ")")
2015-03-11 15:51   
Please navigate to /usr/src/linux-headers-3.4.104+ and run "make scripts" (build-essential needs to be installed)

Is it working now?
2015-03-11 16:13   
Solved. It's working. Thanks!

for kernel, headers and firmware see 0000103
Fixed in Bananian 15.04. All other binaries, libraries, .. will be packaged in the next release
