Linux Kernel question TXT

Beitrag von hvn » 17 Jun 2020, 19:25

Hi,

I want to check the version of the community kernel on my SD card, since the latest version is 0.9.5. However, when I give "uname -a" I get "Linux FT-txt 4.1.37 #2 PREEMPT Fri Jul 14 01:42:07 CEST 2017 armv7l GNU/Linux". And for some reason, accessing the FT-GUI shows me a blank screen on the TXT. So how can I check or figure out which ftc version of kernel I use?

Thanks,

hvn

I do not own a TXT Controller, but anyway.

You approach ist totally correct,

Code: Alles auswählen

uname -a
shows the kernel version (a complete OS may have extra infos).
For the GUI check the HTML source (view source) in your browser. I would expect some script/adblocker
supresses the output. What Browser did you use? Try Firefox or Chrome.

In case you need more info try

Code: Alles auswählen

dmesg | less
this will show a lot of Infos.

Plase report your Browser / Version and the URL your are actually calling.

Hope I could help.

I guess you're mixing up the kernel version and the community firmware version.

I think you are looking for

Code: Alles auswählen

cat /etc/fw-ver.txt
Which shows the community firmware version.

Best regards,
Lars

This did work and showed I had to upgrade the cfw, which solved 2 problems.
