I'm sorry I don't quite understand, I am using the Ubuntu build from this link:

When I run uname -r I see "3.10.101-0-pine64-longsleep" but no 51 at the end.  I see your 51 build at this link:

But I only know how to flash the .img to a SD card, I'm not sure what I need to do with the .xz files here to get an image on the SD that will boot in the Pine64.  Do I follow the same process of using the "dd" command?  Perhaps the at this link?:

If you could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.


Re-Installed this img:

I found this link:

In regards to the "demsg" hundreds of things are printed out and I don't know what I'm looking for.

I had to install "wireless-tools" to be able to run iwconfig but running that showed:

eth0 no wireless extensions

sit0 no wireless extensions

lo no wireless extensions

I again tried to run "make all" on the driver i got from github (see link in original post), also note first I installed "git" and "build-essential".  Here is a link to the error:

Next i tried the github repo's README DKMS instructions to see if that would work.

On the "dkms build" build I got this missing headers error:

This package: "linux-headers-3.10.101-0-pine64-longsleep" does not exist so it cannot be installed.

Any advice would be appreciated.  Thanks.
