New Kernel for NanoPi’s (5.10.160)

After checking the Friendlyelec Wiki I saw that most of their images got updated to the “rockchip bsp linux-5.10-gen-rkr5” kernel which they state is 5.10.160 .

Is the new version gonna be available via a new dietpi update?

I think @MichaIng could provide some information on exactly which kernel is used on NanoPi and how to update it.

Which NanoPi are you referring in particular? And what is your current kernel version?

uname -a

Sorry for the late reply:
Linux DietPi 5.10.110 #1 SMP Tue Mar 14 21:42:07 CST 2023 aarch64 GNU/Linux

Is it about the NanoPi R5S or R6S or some variant of it?

In my case the R5S but Friendlyelec seems to have upgraded it across the board on all the NanoPi‘s 5/6 which were based on their 5.10.y branch GitHub - friendlyarm/kernel-rockchip at nanopi5-v5.10.y_opt

PR up for this update. New kernel images and module packages have been built already. I’ll test them and then merge it for today’s DietPi update: NanoPi R5S/R5C/6 series | Update kernel to v5.10.160 by MichaIng · Pull Request #6510 · MichaIng/DietPi · GitHub
