Jetson Tx2 Kernel Modules for ttyACM


#1

Hey!
I am using a Jetson Tx2 to communicate via USB with a device using ttyACM. Using raw Ubuntu on the Jetson (without Resin) I followed these instructions to active some Kernels extensions. The problem is that I used the display to select from a GUI the extensions I needed, but I dont know how to do that with Resin.

I need that kernel but I dont know whether I can configure that in the Docker or some modifications of the Resin OS itself need to be done.

Thank you for your support!

Hi,
If you want to use a completely different kernel version you need to modify ResinOS itself, but if you just need to load additional kernel modules, you can compile them for the same kernel version ResinOS uses and use modprobe in your container to load them.

You can look at this example project on how to build kernel modules for ResinOS: https://github.com/resin-io-playground/kernel-module-build

I’ll try to do a write-up of an example. I’ll let you know as soon as I get it working using uv4l kernel module extension.
