I am trying to update Promox and I seem to be getting a kernel error due to the Coral PTU gasket driver. I am not exactly sure how to proceed.

PVE headers and the TPU driver are all up to to date. Maybe the driver isn't support with the newer kernel?

Any ideas? Thanks!

Probably. Maybe check /var/lib/dkms/gasket/1.0/build/make.log? And then search the web and check if there is a new driver version available, from the place where you got the previous one.

Same exact issue. I had to uninstall the gasket-dkms package to fix the error, preventing me from using Frigate. Hopefully an update to the driver will fix this. It was last updated in March 2022.

Were you able to reinstall after? I have frigate running on this node in an LXC and don’t want to break the Corral TPU.

I was able to reinstall, but had to get the gasket kernel module from here instead. I cloned the repo, built the module using the command mentioned in the README (you'll need dh-dkms, dkms, and devscripts packages), and installed the deb file generated by the build (it'll be located in the outer directory of where the build was ran). After a reboot, /dev/apex_0 appeared and Frigate in my LXC detected the Coral TPU.

Hello

same probleme here.
A build new module , install with dpkg -i gasket-dkms_1.0-18_all.deb and it's ok now !

T you :)
 
sorry I'm a noob at all of this...do you have a list of steps on how to do this? I'm trying to get frigate back up after updating proxmox versions

Edit:

I figured it out

  1. install dh-dkms, dkms, and devscripts packages using apt install
  2. download the code, unzip, copy to proxmox installation, cd into the folder you just copied, run "debuild -us -uc -tc -b", cd back into root and install the debian package using "dpkg -i gasket-dkms_1.0-18_all.deb"

Was having exactly the same issue. This worked to resolve the issue. Steps followed as per @LiloBzH and it worked perfectly.

Lesson for me - don't ignore errors when running updates :)

yeah

apt remove gasket-dkms
apt install git
apt install devscripts
apt install dh-dkms

In HOME

git clone https://github.com/google/gasket-driver.git
cd gasket-driver/
debuild -us -uc -tc -b
cd..
dpkg -i gasket-dkms_1.0-18_all.deb

apt update && apt upgrade

if no error => reboot !
Just want to add my thanks to @LiloBzH for the idiot proof instructions. Apex had disappeared from /dev after the upgrade, but this fixed it without any other changes needing to be made.

For any other dummies like myself that have no business using Linux and thus might get confused about a few things:

In HOME = cd /home (not home as in going to debian's home/root directory).
cd.. = This step should be putting you back in /home and needs a space e.g. cd ..
(the latter was the mistake I made; cd.. didn't work and I just went cd which put me back too far, obviously, yet the dpkg command seemed to run fine or else I'm just extremely thick and skipped that step actually yeah that was it never use CLI when sleep-deprived okay shutting up now)

Everything went well here until running the debuild command above and the result was a dependencies error - can anyone help?

Only thing off the top of my head is that you're running it from wrong directory. Per my previous comment:
In HOME = cd /home (not home as in going to debian's home/root directory).
So root@pve3:/home rather than root@pve03:~#.

Note I have no business instructing others in using Linux, but that was my takeaway (and, of course, it worked on my machine™).

Feels like you might have missed removing gasket-dkms or adding dh-dkms? Unmet build dependencies: dkms
Reckon you should start again from step one, line by line. Easy to skip a line and miss something.
If that ain't it, sorry I couldn't be more help.
