I’m in the process of running a Kubernetes cluster across my Rock Pi 4C cluster and I’m deciding on running the Cilium CNI with eBPF, however it requires I’m running at least 5.x kernel, I’m using the Rock Pi ARM64 Ubuntu Focal 20.04 image however it’s pinned to 4.4 and I can’t see Rock Pi packages for the more recent kernel versions
My questions are the following:
- Should I compile the kernel upgrades myself? If yes, are there any docs I can follow?
- Is using a fresh Ubuntu ARM64 20.04.2 image that comes packaged with 5.x kernel a better option? If yes, do I need to load any custom Rock Pi firmware to be able to boot?
I appreciate everyone’s comments and thoughts!!
