You should add linux-headers into list of dependencies.

I'm having trouble with an Edimax EW-7811Un, which I'm assuming uses this driver. Am I correct in installing this if I need support? Also, why doesn't the default kernel module work?

@Revelation60 3.18.6-2 on pi working fine. It's been a bit strange these last few kernel updates, I've had to rebuild and reboot a couple times.

I cannot get a connection all of a sudden on 3.18.6-1. Am I the only one with this problem?

I am having issues with the latest kernel, wifi seems connected but connection doesnt works after a few. Anyone else?

runnytu commented on 2015-01-15 18:19

@Magbed Yes it's working ok.

bertogs commented on 2015-01-15 16:21

Anyone tried this driver with the 3.18 kernel? Is it working ok?

I've moved the directory /lib/modules/3.12.29-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8192cu/ to another place, ran depmod, modprobed 8192cu and it looks like now I'm running the correct module:
[root@pie ~]# modinfo 8192cu | head
filename: /lib/modules/3.12.29-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8192cu.ko

I'm running Archlinux on a Raspberry PI. It looks like after installing the package, the system is still using a driver which comes packaged with the kernel:
[root@pie ~]# modinfo 8192cu | grep -i file
filename: /lib/modules/3.12.29-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8192cu/8192cu.ko.gz
[root@pie ~]# ls -l /lib/modules/3.12.29-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8192cu/8192cu.ko.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 242943 Oct 7 16:05 /lib/modules/3.12.29-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8192cu/8192cu.ko.gz
[root@pie ~]#

And here's the actual driver built by the package:
[root@pie ~]# ls -l /usr/lib/modules/3.12.29-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8192cu.ko
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 636580 Oct 28 17:57 /usr/lib/modules/3.12.29-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8192cu.ko
[root@pie ~]#

Some more info:
[root@pie ~]# locate 8192cu.ko
[root@pie ~]# md5sum /usr/lib/modules/3.12.29-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8192cu.ko /usr/lib/modules/3.12.29-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8192cu/8192cu.ko.gz /var/lib/dkms/8192cu/v4.0.2_9000/3.12.29-1-ARCH/armv6l/module/8192cu.ko
93a56119f7210a5265c507019a28c4b5 /usr/lib/modules/3.12.29-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8192cu.ko
d41b5d92544b879764b4430a3580f42c /usr/lib/modules/3.12.29-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8192cu/8192cu.ko.gz
93a56119f7210a5265c507019a28c4b5 /var/lib/dkms/8192cu/v4.0.2_9000/3.12.29-1-ARCH/armv6l/module/8192cu.ko
[root@pie ~]#

The dkms driver is the first and the last file. The system is using the second one.
