6.30 update ??

This version is available but no info on the forum ??

Yes it’s a hot fix for v6.29.2 to fix a bug in Drive Manager. Information within the forum will follow.

And no kernel update ? :wink: … and an upgrade the ASIX driver (ethernet adapter of my Allo USBridge) >> 0.1.4 > V2.0 (ax88179_178a)


maybe there is a misunderstanding regarding the kernel. There is no DietPi kernel. DietPi did not and will not create own kernel. For Raspberry Pi devices, DietPi is using Raspbian Lite as base image, including the kernel. For other devices it’s mainly Armbian. If there was a kernel update on your side, it might be triggered by apt update + apt upgrade as this is triggered before DietPi update process starts.

This is the change long for v6.30

Yes, it’s Raspian kernel.
But I use an Allo USBRidge with the RPI3 compute module and Allo offers a version of Dietpi with the Asix ethernet driver in version V2 for Dietpi 6.26.
But when I update 6.26 >> 6.29 or 6.30, the driver 2.0 goes back to 0.1.4 (?)

Probably done by the apt process triggered. Did you had a look to this link from Allo?

Yes, I think DietPi_v6.26m1_RPi-ARMv7-Stretch_AlloGUI.img.7z is a local compiled version and if you update, you don’t keep the version of driver 2.0.
So I ask Allo to update: DietPi_v6.30m1_RPi-ARMv7-Stretch_AlloGUI.img.7z :wink:
There is a script to introduce the Asix 2.0 driver but for the kernel version later than 4.19.73.

well I guess the driver should work on other kernel as well

I see at least a directory for rpi-usbs-4.19.55-v7+ and current Raspbian Kernel should be 4.19.66-v7+ on Stretch. But seems this one is missing on Allo side

Finally is good with Allo update script to download driver 2.0. :slight_smile:
I don’t understand … KO with 6.29 and good with 6.30.
