Ubuntu 18.04 TBS 6285 driver install fails at 'make'

I just tried the posted approach as you suggested. I can now see the tuners which is a big step forward but don't seem to have correct frequency data to scan for channels. (This may well be something else I've failed to configure as yet) I also got a fair selection of error messages but its moved forward somewhat from where I previously had got to. It would be really nice if someone could just fix the basic problem, I have no idea how much of a change would be required to do this though.

When does the closed-source-driver support kernel version 4.15? I have installed the open-source-driver, but it seems not to be as stable as the closed-source-driver. With the closed-version I never had problems...

I'm still interested for when support for kernel 4.15 will be added................

I have a very simple solution. Just boot into the old kernel where you have installed the driver. You need to use another entry in grub2. Of course you could automate it. There is no need to install it each time the kernel changes.

But then be warned to connect the PC to the internet as you might use software and packages with potential security issues...

i use 'sudo apt-mark hold linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic' to stop it updating.
then checkout the changelog for the new kernel to see if i need to update for security reasons.

I used this procedure to install the drivers on Ubuntu 20.04 and it worked great. I did not do the parts that are highlighted, the first because it was a brand new install of Ubuntu 20.04 so there were no old drivers to uninstall, and the second because I have no USB-connected tuners therefore nothing that requires firmware. Anyway it worked great, but now I am wondering what is the procedure to rebuild the drivers after a kernel update? I knew how to do it with the old proprietary drivers, but I have no idea how you do it with the open source drivers - or do they even need to be rebuilt after a kernel upgrade like the older drivers did?

Hi BlueSky

After udpate the kernel you need rebuild the driver again as the new kernel have not driver inside ,after update the kernel you can compile like before

Thanks

Kind Regards
