Post kernel-package fails to compile kernel headers on (*)Ubuntu 16.04.2


Hello everyone,

I am very happy to have just acquired a new laptop (HP ProBook 6460b intel i5 quad core processor). I just got though installing Kubuntu 16.04.2 onto this newly obtained powerhouse and I am attempting to build the latest kernel sources from kernel.org using kernel package. Unfortunately, only the kernel binaries will build, but no headers. With these complications, I am experiencing very similar difficulties on my linux desktop/server as well (running Ubuntu 16.04.2) in which any headers past kernel version 4.9.10 fail to compile. These headers seem to be essential in installing the modules/drivers for my Broadcom BCM43223 (b43) chip and Virtualbox on my new machine. Any suggestions?

Yep, might just get a supported kernel and then try. https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?k...eaders-generic.

Doubt this will work. sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

Guess you could make a package from scratch.

This is what happens to you and I when we go off the mainstream kernel.

Hello Jefro,

Thank you for your reply. I know right? I guess those devs want to put us into a little box. Speaking of building stuff from scratch, I tried that with kernel package, but it just stopped working sooner or later. I will give the aforementioned suggestions a try and let you know how they work out.

Sincerely,

D3H
