I’m currently using OpenHABian 1.4.1 (running OpenHAb 2.3.0) on a Raspberry Pi Model B Rev 2.
The current kernel is 4.9.35+.
Today I tried to upgrade my system, but seems to be on the newest version already.
I’m trying to access a DS2438 chip via 1-wire. I’m already using a DS18B20 (temperature sensors) without problems. The DS2438 is supported by newer linux kernels.
Now by questions:
Is there a newer kernel available?
Is it possible to install a newer kernel with OpenHabian?
I there a (supported/recommended) way to install a additional kernel module?
The Raspbian Jessy has a stable branch with the 4.9.x kernel that openHABian is using. Is this the same branch openHABian is based on?
If so, why are we currently using 4.9.35 while the latest Raspbian is 4.9.80?
What is the recommended way to only upgrade the kernel (in the 4.9.x branch)? Should I use rpi-update for this or will this upgrade to the newest available 4.x kernel (currently 4.18.x)?
I looked at the RPi forum and the answer would be to install the newer version
of the kernel.
A rpi-update 5c80565c5c0c7f820258c792a98b56f22db2dd03 should do the job, but the problem is: “rpi-update” is missing.
So? What to do?
Does the next version (1.5?) use the newer kernel?
Any other ideas?
Did really nobody upgrade the kernel?
