I am trying to make a usb gadget project following: http://www.isticktoit.net/?p=1383
I am starting with: 2019-09-26-raspbian-buster-lite
On initial install I get kernel: linux simknob 4.19.75+ #1270 Tue Sep 24 18:38:54 BST 2019 armv6l GNU/Linux
I am a bit confused about kernel versions. Searching around I see people talking about running 4.4.11, 4.59, etc., but I cannot find a 'hash' to install those versions with rpi-update. I also cannot find any concise information around using these kernel versions.We need to use the 4.4 Kernel, which is currently (Feb. 2016) not installed on the default Raspbian image. But upgrading is easy: just run
Code: Select all
sudo BRANCH=next rpi-update
If I do a simple rpi-update, I get kernel 4.19.86+, which is apparently the current development kernel? Was there ever official 4.4 support? Does the isticktoit blog actually mean '4.19.4' ? or maybe 4.14 ?
Thanks in advance for any explanations!
