Hello, new version with added Hercules HWNUM-300V2 devices support with the same version number to avoid others users to update.

Aldebaran commented on 2015-08-09 15:36

I have an Hercules HWNUM-300V2 and it work with this driver, but to do this I must add this line : {USB_DEVICE(0x06F8, 0xE035)},
in the file : os_dep/linux/usb_intf.c

I want to add this modification at the aur package but I don't know how, I can post a patch here ?

Sorry if this is not the right way. And for my english.

8192cu-dkms depends on dkms, but dkms *optionally* depends on linux-headers, so i have to install linux-headers before install 8192cu-dkms.

is there any kernel module option for 8192cu to disable the led blinking?

Please note that I had to do couple of small changes, as my gcc compiler complained.
- One seems like a code bug, as an array is accesses beyond its last element.
- The other is about the use of strnicmp, which seems deprecated
Patches are at the links below for your consideration:

@fabioca, because are propietary drivers, the open source are the included in the vanilla kernel, and the ARCH way is to be the most close to vanilla kernel released by linus torvalds and company.

I am a newbie so apology in advance if the question is dumb:

This seems like a fix to a faulty driver. Instead of having a separate package, why doesn't it just get upstreamed in the mainline kernel?

Hello, Bump to new version 8192cu-dkms v4.0.2_9000-8 with support for kernel 4.0 branch.

moesgaard commented on 2015-03-26 11:32

I suggest adding this to the package for black listing.

blacklist rtl8192cu
blacklist rtl8192c_common
blacklist rtl_usb
blacklist rtlwifi
blacklist mac80211
blacklist cfg80211
blacklist rfkill

because i went from a maximum 10Mbps to my top speed of 50Mbps just by adding those extra lines.

@Kuci The discussion, about including or not linux-headers as a dependencies, in a dkms package should happen on the AUR mailing list. we should follow what is written in the wiki ( which is not including linux-headers as a dependencie because dkms already lists it as an optional one.
