Compile Drivers

Post by GLevi » Wed Aug 04, 2021 10:25 pm

How can I download the Kernel headers needed to compile a driver ? In this moment I'm trying to installa a WI FI usb dongle that has normally no problems with Linux:
# lsusb
> Bus 001 Device 002: ID 148f:7601 Ralink Technology, Corp. MT7601U Wireless Adapter
> Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Drivers can be found here:
git clone

I have tried to compile them using generic headers but the operation fails when I try to install them:

root@rp-f04078:~# dmesg | tail
[ 2.838649] systemd[1]: Listening on udev Control Socket.
[ 2.863588] systemd[1]: Started Dispatch Password Requests to Console Directory Watch.
[ 3.955974] EXT4-fs (mmcblk0p2): re-mounted. Opts: errors=remount-ro
[ 4.302828] systemd-journald[871]: Received request to flush runtime journal from PID 1
[ 9.283583] macb e000b000.ethernet eth0: link up (100/Full)
[ 118.240893] random: crng init done
[ 724.671009] mt7601Usta: disagrees about version of symbol module_layout

So probably the proper headers are needed.
My question is also more general because I would like to compile and install other drivers for other measuring devices. But as usual the correct headers are needed.
We would like to use the Red Pitaya in a Scientific Experiment. So compiling drivers in order to interface it with science equipment is a crucial part of the work.
Thanks for your help.
