Navio2 support for RPi Kernel 5.10

I am requesting that Emlid please support RPI desktop kernel 5.10 on Navio2 since per today’s Press Release:
“The Raspberry Pi Foundation released today a new version of their Raspberry Pi OS (formerly Raspbian) distribution for the tiny Raspberry Pi computers, finally upgrading the kernel to Linux 5.10 LTS, which brings numerous new features and improvements”. Linux kernel 5.10.17 is included in the new Raspberry Pi OS release,

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your request and sorry for the delay!

I’ll check this information for you and will be back with the news.

Please continue supporting Navio2. It is a fabulous product that deserves continued LINUX support. If you support KERNEL 5.10, and gstreamer 1.18, the Auvidea board B101 works fine with GoPro HDMI. The only alternative is to switch to Pixhawk flight controller. I prefer Emlid.

Hi Rob,

We’ve just updated the current image with a new kernel of version 5.10.11. To get an update, you need to run sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade command.

Thanks for your feedback! We don’t have plans on ceasing the software updates on Navio2.

Regarding GStreamer, you can manually update it to v1.18. Please check the instructions shared by one of our users in this thread.

Edited: changed the command for packages update.

I had to allow root to do the upgrade, had an error with dkms but dkms upgrade was fine at second try.

Raspberry 4, usb is fine, arducopter 4.0.7 running (custom install).


Thank you Liudmila and all at Emlid. Navio2 will live on - this will be much appreciated I am sure by the community.


Hi Marc,

Thanks for this note!

That’s right. Those commands should be run with sudo.

3 posts were split to a new topic: Navio+ isn’t recognized

The instruction do not work to install Gstreamer 1.18.

Go to opensuse link for instruction

Hi @bobbyl8133,

I can barely point out why the issue with the installation appears as we haven’t tested this ourselves. I believe the instructions from the official documentation might be of help.

After installing the upgrade, to be safe I ran through all the calibrations. I am unable to calibrate the ESC’s. Also I have not commination with the ESC. Before the upgrade I didn’t have any issues with calibrating the ESC’s. Is anyone else having this issue?
