Fenix Build. Kernel modules not available in image (+PPS GPIO config)

Which system do you use? Android, Ubuntu, OOWOW or others?

ubuntu 22.04 server from fenix 1.0.11

Hey there. I try to build in the pps modules but can not manage to get this working.


kernel builds and modules are within fenix/build/linux/drivers/pps/clients/pps-ktimer.ko

However when I build an image it will not be present.
/usr/lib/modules/5.4.125/kernel/drivers/ does not contain a pps folder

modules.builtin is also not aware of these modules (just copy from build folder to /usr/lib does not help)

What do I have to do to have them available? I’d assume having them in the kernel config and build the image was enough, but it is not.

You need make kernel-deb to generate new debian package if you added new configurations.

After running kernel-deb and building the image I have the modules available, just to understand:
Is ‘make kernel-deb’ not run when running ‘make’ or ‘make all’?

Who is interessted or finds this topic when searching for pps.
This is what i added to my kvim4.dts file (fenix/build/linux/arch/arm64/boot/dts/amlogic) to have a dedicated gpio for pps (GPIOT_19, IO5, Pin 37 on GPIO Header):

pps {
	pinctrl-names = "default";
	gpios = <&gpio GPIOT_19 GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH>;
	compatible = "pps-gpio";
