xbian kernel source package - eph - 17th Dec, 2014 10:35 AM

I'm trying to build wifi dongle driver but for that I need kernel source (with module.sysvers file). I've failed to find xbian-package-kernel source package, the repos don't seem to contain source packages. I'm not even sure if module.sysvers would be included. I want to avoid the need to build the kernel myself so can anybody point me to the right direction? Cheers

Thanks for that. But that is not kernel source package, only headers.

Source package == headers. At least in XBian.

Hm, you are right, there are some source files but most of the stuff is just Makefiles and config files - I guess because xbian kernel is small with most of the normal stuff not needed on rpi.

The reason why I've asked was that kernel/bounds.c is missing so make modules_prepare fails.

Basically I'm trying to build MT7601 driver for my rpi. I'm following the tutorial here (there are some others but basically the same) but can't even prepare the kernel (for reasons mentioned above).
