Topic: Novena-RF - recompiling the kernel driver
I'm working through the Novena-RF_Driver instructions on the MyriadRF wiki which point to a pre-compiled Linux 3.19 driver which naturally won't run on my 4.4 kernel. Those same instructions (a) claim a requirement for a kernel build (rather than just the linux-headers-novena package) and (b) the use of a cross-compiler, rather than simply compiling on the Novena.
Has anyone actually worked through this? Are either of these things actually true? It's been close to (more than?) two decades since I compiled a Linux kernel. The prospect does not excite me.
