Trying to install wifi drivers

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Sorry guys, newbie here, so bear with me.

I have a Nanopi Fire3 running s5p6818-eflasher-20171212-lubuntu-desktop.img. I'm trying to do a 'make' on a wireless driver but get the following error:

make ARCH=armv7l CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/3.4.39-s5p6818/build M=/home/fa/EW-7822ULC modules
make[1]: *** /lib/modules/3.4.39-s5p6818/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
Makefile:1801: recipe for target 'modules' failed
make: *** [modules] Error 2

How do I resolve this? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Try if you can make this work:
https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-m3/

There, this is supported out of the box.

If you have some time and experience, you can try building the image with a modern kernel (4.4.111) on your own.

https://github.com/armbian/config
- ./compile.sh INSTALL_HEADERS="yes"
- create a default kernel image for NanoPiM3 (you can find it under Show CSC/WIP/EOS)
- add fdtfile=s5p6818-nanopi3-rev05.dtb to /boot/armbianEnv.txt on the image. It might boot fine without changing this ... so you can edit this later to get full Fire3 configuration.

I am getting Fire3 board soon and I'll try adopting both kernels for this board.
