I recently had an issue with Ubuntu 22.04 Frigate running with a Coral PCIe adapter. After a recent upgrade it just broke. It seems the gasket driver and kernel 6.5 are not compatible. The following posted steps did the trick for me.

Note: I was not able to find dh-dkms package to install, but the following steps did it anyways.

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install devscripts debhelper -y
Then clone and the rest

❯ git clone https://github.com/google/gasket-driver.git
Cloning into 'gasket-driver'...
...
❯ cd gasket-driver; debuild -us -uc -tc -b; cd ..
...
dpkg-deb: building package 'gasket-dkms' in '../gasket-dkms_1.0-18_all.deb'.
...
❯ ls -l gasket-dkms*

You can install that .deb on any systems that need to build the kernel module, and it will be rebuilt automatically with newer kernel packages being installed:

❯ sudo dpkg -i gasket-dkms_1.0-18_all.deb
