OMV on Raspberry Pi and 5.4.42 kernel

  • That kernel was just released two days ago. So, probably not many people running it yet. Upgrading my system now and trying the 2020-05-27 raspbian buster lite image now.

  • Just a note, I thought the kernel was in the repo. Not sure why you need the 5.4 kernel but if you want the most stable system, avoid running rpi-update. Once the 5.4 kernel is the default kernel, it will be in the repo.

  • HI, i actually need an updated kernel to solve the macvlan issues already highlighted in other threads and have been forced to run the rpi-update to have a kernel version that solves it.

    That has been annoying me a bit bc I know i should not be running untested kernel on a regular basis.. every updates makes me shiver :)


    I have a "test" RPi to try some functionality out and report if I found any issues.

  • Ok, i run a apt-get upgrade on the "test"rpi3 on which I 've run rpi-update previosuly, and the kernel was bumped to 4.19.118-v7+.


    Is this normal? I was expecting it to go to 5.4.42, perhaps I was wrong.


    so fare everything is working ok..

    Will try in the afternoon to upgrade the RPi4 (not previously updated with rpi-update).

    If you need an ultra stable NAS, an RPi should not be your first choice.

    Since I know many more will do this, I updated an RPi4 to the 5.4 kernel. Seems fine so far.

    let's say I'm more looking for a compromise : won't' look for trouble going regularly installing the latest firmware and kernel with rpi-update but also want some functionalities and i'll wait for them to be properly fixed int he stable branch.

    did you do it with rpi-update? or is the 5.4 in the official repository by now?

  • did you do it with rpi-update?

    Yes


    or is the 5.4 in the official repository by now?

    No. 4.19 is still in the repo and the new 2020-05-27 raspbian buster lite image is still using the 4.19 kernel. I can't imagine the macvlan issue requires the 5.4 kernel. I realize it might need a change to the 4.19 kernel though.
