Ftdi_sio.ko Kernel Module needed for Kernel 4.2.3-25-osmc

I need help compiling this module.
Or has anybody compiled it already an is so kind providing me a copy?


Please tell us what you’ve done so far, and any error messages you get.

(I don’t have an Apple TV, btw.)

I simply need some help how to compile a kernel module on ATV :flushed:
osmc for Apple TV does not include ftdi_sio.ko
I need the module for a project and therefore I am asking here if someone can help me out.
I already installed some prerequisites:
build-essential atv-headers-4.2.3-25-osmc atv-source-4.2.3-25-osmc gcc
(please let me know if anything else needs to be installed)
what next?

I downloaded the ATV1 image OSMC_TGT_appletv_20171001-HDD.img.gz and can confirm that the ftdi_sio module wasn’t included in the build.

Perhaps this thread will provide some clues about compiling a single kernel module.

It seems that nobody except @sam_nazarko has ever compiled additional kernel module on (for) ATV1. :worried:
I will try the generic howto linked by @dillthedog or others found by Google.
