Wireguard onE25 running Debian or Ubuntu

Hi,

Does anybody know how to get Wireguard to work on E25 using the pre-built images of Debian or Ubuntu?

I get this error…

root@radxa-e25:/etc/systemd/system# wg-quick up /etc/wireguard/wg0.conf

[#] ip link add wg0 type wireguard
RTNETLINK answers: Operation not supported
Unable to access interface: Protocol not supported
[#] ip link delete dev wg0
Cannot find device "wg0"

Which seems to suggest the Wireguard module has not been installed.

Install the following Ubuntu packages:
wireguard - fast, modern, secure kernel VPN tunnel (metapackage)
wireguard-dkms - fast, modern, secure kernel VPN tunnel (DKMS version)
wireguard-tools - fast, modern, secure kernel VPN tunnel (userland utilities)

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion.

I tried to install those packages but get…

Any other suggestions

Hmmm… broken dkms package :frowning:
You’ll have to compile yourself.

First, remove the wireguard-dkms package.
sudo apt-get remove wireguard-dkms

Then, install the pre-requirements to compile:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install -y build-essential
sudo apt install -y pkg-config m4 libtool automake autoconf
sudo apt install -y ca-certificates
sudo apt install -y git

Then get the wireguard source code, apply a minor patch and make:
git clone https://git.zx2c4.com/wireguard-linux-compat
perl -pi -e “s/ktime_get_coarse_boottime_ns/_ktime_get_coarse_boottime_ns/g;” ./wireguard-linux-compat/src/compat/compat.h
make -C wireguard-linux-compat/src -j$(nproc)
sudo make -C wireguard-linux-compat/src install

Perfect thanks.

I did try compiling this before but it failed. As I was not aware of the required patch.

Thanks again
