Hello. How can i add wifi dongle driver for HOST OS to /etc/modules from service ? Or any other way ? Thank you.
Hi there. Another user has documented their method to doing this in the following forum thread: How to build custom kernel modules. Here is also an example project that may be useful: https://github.com/balena-os/kernel-module-build
Hopefully these can be useful to you
So the answer, i only need to compile custom balenaOS? But i already have a file , and right now i am doing next on HOST:
mount -ro remount,rw / wget http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/plain/mt7601u.bin -O /lib/firmware/mt7601u.bin sleep 10 && reboot & exit
How can i automate this ?
Unless for some reason that module cannot be built out-of-tree, you should actually be able to do all this from a regular service defined in your
docker-compose.yml. Have a look at the following forum thread for more nuance regarding building wifi kernel modules: How can I configure tp-link wifi adapter
Is that not working for you, or perhaps there’s something else blocking you from doing that?
Hi. I do not need build. I have file. I need to put it on HOST file system to /lib/firmware/ dir. How can i do that from Guest docker app ? Is it possible ?
Maybe i can put somewhere to iso with resin-image-fs tool ?
Currently there is not a way to inject a file like this firmware in the root fs which will be preserved after OS update, so we do not have a way for doing this that we would recommend. We are currently working on a solution for this, but it is not ready yet unfortunately.
The proper way for handling this is for us to include the firmware in a next OS release. I see you are copying
mt7601u.bin - is this for a Ralink MT7601U wireless adapter? Also what is the device that you are using - a Raspberry Pi or a different one?
Yes, Ralink MT7601U and Raspberry Pi. It will be great.
Thank you for the information @sergbbb,
Which specific model of the Raspberry Pi are you targeting?
Raspberry Pi 3

Hi, we have created an issue to add this support to balenaOS, https://github.com/balena-os/meta-balena/issues/2067. We will update this ticket once the issue is resolved.
Hi! I’d like to tag on to this thread. I’m currently using an UP-Board and it’s official Wifi Kit.
lsusb shows that to be the same chipset, MT7601U. So having that driver available for UP-Board as well would be great!
Hey there - thanks for letting us know. I’ve added your voice to the github issue for this.
