    Default Linux-Headers - 15.1 - don't exist?

    With Untangle 15.1's release, it moved the kernel to 4.19.0-8. Unforunately, it doesn't appear the headers are available in the repository (yet?).

    It looks like linux-headers-4.9.0-9-untangle-amd64 and linux-headers-4.9.0-11-untangle-amd64 exist, so I'm hoping it's just a matter of time.

    I'm attempting to download the headers so I can inject the r8168 drivers into the kernel instead of the default r8169 drivers for Realtek NICs. Yes, I know Realtek isn't great, but it's what I have. Performance increases significantly using the r8168 driver vs. the kernel's r8169 ones.

    Thoughts?

    I would try the stock install to see if it works before you go mucking about with replacement kernel modules.

    Stock install using r8169 does work, speeds are just much slower.

    Unfortunately, I don't have screenshots, but using r8169 on my 1Gbps connection usually yields about 350Mbps vs. 850Mbps using the r8168 drivers.

    I have done this numerous times on 14.x builds and on 15.0 without issue.

    v15.1 isn't "released" yet, so yeah I don't think the repos are ready.

    *Edit* And it's released now: https://forums.untangle.com/announce...available.html

    Hmm. Something still seems off... running an "apt-get update" from CLI has 404 errors in it for the Untangle buster repos. Pardon the odd substitution; I don't have enough posts to add links.

    Ign:1 http COLON //updates DOT untangle DOT com/public/buster stable-151 InRelease
    Err:2 http COLON //updates DOT untangle DOT com/public/buster stable-151 Release
    404 Not Found [IP: 52 DOT 39 DOT 250 DOT 125 80]
    Reading package lists... Done
    E: The repository 'http COLON //updates DOT untangle DOT com/public/buster stable-151 Release' does not have a Release file.
    N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
    N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
    N: Usage of apt_auth DOT conf(5) should be preferred over embedding login information directly in the sources DOT list(5) entry for 'http COLON // updates DOT untangle DOT com/public/buster'

    Looks like it may be password protected.

    Interesting. By default, the untangle.list that gets generated under /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ is prefixed with the UID of the Untangle installation, so I would assume it would do a check based on that. I'm a licensed user and was added to the 15.1 distribution early. Maybe I'll spin up a VM from the ova and see if it has the same issue.

    EDIT: This JIRA issue seems to be what I would need, but I don't see a resolution other than "closed" but I'm not super familiar with JIRA. https://jira.untangle.com/browse/NGFW-12937
