Raspi Firmware Bump to 6.1

Hi all,

I am currently facing an issue:
I flashed a Raspberry Pi 3A+ incl. ReSpeaker hat with the current Pi OS 64bit light (still kernel 5.15).
There has been a kernel bump in (I think) the firmware package. So somewhen in the installation process via install_arm64.sh I encounter the below error which is not fixed when rebooting and re-executing the installation.

Has anyone experience with this situation? Should I just wait for newer Pi OS releases?

Thanks and regards,

OK, update:

Obviously, the new kernel 6.1 is rolled out via APT. So dist-upgrading already solves the kernel mismatch.
Nevertheless, the installation script is not able to properly retrieve the installed kernel version on the system and still throws the above error, although the kernel versions are actually matching…

Did you solve it? I also encountered the same problem.

Hey guys,
The problem still exists. I’m not able to use the driver on my new RPI system.

Any workarounds here?

May I ask which specific product you are using?

Hi and thanks for your response!
We, for instance, use the 2-mic PiHat like this one:
ReSpeaker 2 Mics PiHat

A usual host would be a Raspberry Pi 3 (A or B)

Perhaps you can try rebrushing your system to 64-bit and changing the clone link for the new seeed-voicecard according to the following post
I hope this is helpful to you.

Hi @Seeed_huang,

thanks a bunch for that suggestion!
Unfortunately, I end up at a similar problem (see below).
What about the others? Do you experience something similar?


From my side, I’m still using the 6+1 mic array.

In fact, I tried to modify the install script to make him believe that the right headers are installed, as in my understanding, when he extracts the information about the current kernel, he doesn’t take into account the “-v7+” info, but afterwards, during compilation, there is an error.

Best regards,
