Comment: Updated ppa name to 'astuff' to use the new PPA created


titleLinuxcan PPA

A PPA (Personal Package Archive) is now available for Ubuntu 1416.04+ to install Kvaser Linuxcan as a DKMS (Dynamic Kernel Module System) module. This saves you from having to rebuild/fix linuxcan after every new kernel upgrade. To install the PPA, do the following:

Code Block
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:jwhitleyastuffastuff/kvaser-linux
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kvaser-canlib-dev kvaser-drivers-dkms

After a reboot, linuxcan should work as before and automatically re-build on a new kernel install. New versions will become available on this PPA as they are released by Kvaser.
