darling-mach module in kernel 5.9 is not supported?

Asked by Gran Jacob on 2020-11-12

Trying to run darling on ubuntu I finally installed, but when I try to run it, I get this:

modprobe: FATAL: Module darling-mach not found in directory /lib/modules/5.9.0-050900-lowlatency
Failed to load the kernel module

Googling I found the following instructions to solve it:


Doing it I get this:
ERROR (dkms apport): kernel package linux-headers-5.9.0-050900-lowlatency is not supported

This is the log:

Where did you get this 5.9.0-050900-lowlatency kernel please? It's not in the official repos as far as I can see....

This does not explain where that kernel comes from.
Have you tried with the standard Ubuntu kernel?

Gran Jacob (granjacob) said : #4

Then I suggest you report a bug to the kernel maintainer

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #6

You could also try the newer versions of the kernel, e.g. https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.9.8/

Eventually the compilation logs reveal the cause of the failure
"Consult /var/lib/dkms/darling-mach/0.1/build/make.log for more information."

Can you help with this problem?
