[SOLVED] ASCII Backports Linux Headers

I am testing Devuan ASCII to see if it is compatible with LinuxCNC http://www.linuxcnc.org/ which requires a realtime kernel.

I added ascii-backports to my repository list and I have successfully installed a realtime linux-image 4.19.67-2+deb10u2~bpo9+1 and it errored while install the matching linux-headers as they are dependent on linux-compiler-gcc-6-x86 4.19.67-2+deb10u2~bpo9+1

According to this page https://pkginfo.devuan.org/cgi-bin/d1pk … ease=ascii it should be available but it doesn't appear in Synaptic Package Manager

Am I looking in the wrong place?

Cheers, Phill.

Re: [SOLVED] ASCII Backports Linux Headers

Give the root terminal a try. First do an apt update/apt upgrade, then:

apt -t ascii-backports install linux-headers-4.19.0-0.bpo.6-amd64

You will have to replace the 4.19.0-0.bpo.6-amd64 with the correct suffix for your machine. That apt install will pull all the required dependencies for the headers.

Re: [SOLVED] ASCII Backports Linux Headers

It's better to install the metapackages, they will keep the kernel version updated:

# apt -t ascii-backports install linux-{headers,image}-amd64

Re: [SOLVED] ASCII Backports Linux Headers

Thank you both. I needed RT so I went with:

# apt -t ascii-backports install linux-{headers,image}-rt-amd64

and it worked a treat.

Cheers, Phill
