[TESTING] Linux 4.14 kernel for Raspberry Pi


I’m finding that the current sources in GitHub won’t build package kernel-osmc for rbp2.
The build errors out with the message:

    install -p    -o root -g root  -m  644 REPORTING-BUGS                  /mnt/package/kernel-osmc/src/linux-4.14.15/debian/rbp2-headers-4.14.15-5-osmc/usr/share/doc/rbp2-headers-4.14.15-5-osmc/
    /usr/bin/install: cannot stat 'REPORTING-BUGS': No such file or directory

It looks to be the same as the problem reported here:


Your kernel-package-osmc is too old.

Purge your toolchain.



Hopefully the issue is now addressed with the following commit:

I’d appreciate it if you could test this and provide feedback before we potentially release this as an update to other users. To test this update:

  1. Login via the command line
  2. Edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list
  3. Add the following line: deb http://apt.osmc.tv stretch-devel main
  4. Run the following commands to update: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade && reboot
  5. Your system should have have received the update.

Please see if the issue is resolved.

I also recommend you edit /etc/apt/sources.list again and remove the line that you added after updating. This will return you to the normal update channel.



Thanks Sam, but I don’t think the module got built? Maybe somebody else can confirm, because I cant find it.


Got the latest and the module loads perfectly and allows me to use the USB wireless NIC again. Thanks again Sam for your help!
