How do I upgrade the kernell

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport


I have used the Ubuntu image provided by FA and did a dist-upgrade to the newest version. I want to upgrade the kernel so I will have NFS/CIFS support. I tried to install linux-image-generic but creating the initrd fails:

Code: Select all

Processing triggers for initramfs-tools (0.125ubuntu9) ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.10.0-35-generic
Warning: root device  does not exist

Press Ctrl-C to abort build, or Enter to continue

Unsupported platform.
run-parts: /etc/initramfs/post-update.d//flash-kernel exited with return code 1
dpkg: error processing package initramfs-tools (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.24-9ubuntu2.2) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:

Any idea how I can upgrade to the newest kernel?

I used a different firmware which does have NFS support in the kernel: https://github.com/avafinger/nanopi-a64-firmware - It's based on Ubuntu 16.04 (LTS)
