Hi folks, just to let you know. I have submitted a new version of a PKGBUILD for a version of this driver available at https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu: 8188eu-dkms-git

With a bit of extra work (patching kernel), It even functions as hostapd.

I'm getting the following build errors when upgrading package linux 4.18.8. Any ideas?

Edit: seems this may be the same problem as @zhengyi5403 is having, as from what I can tell this data field was removed in Linux 4.15.0.

8188eu-v4.3.0.8_13968.tar.xz is an HTML file after download. dropbox download URL needs a ?dl=1 appended. Best to modify the first source-entry to:

"${_pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.xz::<https://www.dropbox.com/s/afs5d2yfgwurqm2/>${_pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.xz?dl=1"

build fail with linux>=4.15

laloch commented on 2017-10-10 13:35

Does not work in HostAP mode with linux>=4.13 since commit 8bfb3676606454ffec836f56c5dc3e69dfc0956a removed legacy IOCTL interface from the wireless extensions module. The same applies to the mainline staging driver.

moham_96 commented on 2017-09-05 12:21

what are the advantages of this driver compared to driver included in mainline linux (r8188eu)?

rdnvndr commented on 2017-07-30 14:48

With my patch works. If you have problem, write about it.
