Ubuntu Kernel version with 'md' module ?

Hello all;

I am currently using Ubuntu version:

Linux ubuntu-armhf 3.8.13-bone20 #1 SMP Wed May 29 10:49:26 UTC 2013 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux

And the ‘md’ module which would allow me to setup a RAID array does not appear to be installed.

I am wondering if it is possible to just upgrade to a kernel version with this module installed?

And if so, where would I find this version ?

Thanks;

And Seasons Greetings to all !

Bill

"3.8.13-bone22" was the first release with the md modules built..

Here's the config commit:

Thanks for the quick reply Robert.

I tried to do a "git pull" and got an "error 403" (access denied?)
I did the pull from my BBB, is there something I need to do first?

Also I assume once I do the pull, I just run the '.sh' script to apply the patch to my existing Kernel?

Thanks;

Your going to need to build and then install it.

Do it on x86 then replace the boot files on your microSD card.

Ok
That's what I thought :frowning:
There is no way to just upgrade the kernel without completely rebuilding the Kernel?

Would I not be better off just getting a more recent version say "3.8.13-bone22" ?

Your using the "ubuntu-armhf" image from armhf.com.. The creator took
some liberties when creating that image that make it incompatible with
any of my standard "kernel" update techniques.

Sorry your choice is only to build the kernel from my scripts and
manually replace the kernel files.

What version of the kernel is completely up to you, but
"3.8.13-bone22" or greater has the md module bits enabled.

Thanks Robert, I'm going to just go get an Ubuntu image > 3.8.13-bone22

It will probably be less painful in the long run :slight_smile:

3.8.13-bone47 is where I am at my own personal “happy place” so far, which seems to also be where element14 seems to be with their kernel versions too.

My own reasoning is fairly simple. It is fairly up to date, and systemd is optional at this point with a simple apt-get install systemd if and when you feel like experimenting. This upgrade also seems fairly clean. Just my own 2-cents. . .
