Debian for De0 Nano SoC: couldn't find remote ref socfpga-4.14.130-ltsi


I’m trying to follow the steps outlined here Debian: Getting Started with the DE0-Nano-SoC Kit. First oaf all, thanks a lot for the detailed instructions.
Unfortunately I got stuck pretty early in the process:


I guess this error comes from the ine 103:


I have not been able to find that reference, and advice?

Also, the instructions require running on a machine with no OS virtualization, I don’t think this issue would be related, but I am running Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS on a VMware virtual machine. Could you indicate where the virtualization might cause issues?

Thanks in advance

Hi @pablo.arias , sadly it looks like Intel nuked that branch again… Branches · altera-opensource/linux-socfpga · GitHub

They did this previously. I’ll take a look tonight, so much has changed with the FPGA loading in the kernel, since 4.14.x

Edit: 2022.05.25, this is now fixed, while Intel nuked the branch, i was able to dig out a tag, so i’ve adjusted the script:


Thanks very much for the quick response, Robert.
The rest of the build instructions worked without any further issue.
Do you know how can I install the Linux headers for this release?




Build against the “./KERNEL/” directory… The headers are right there…
