It doesn't work with kernel 5.10

Can't build in a pristine environment, it seems as if git is missing as a build dependency.

I had to build it in the "host" environment, rather then beeing able to use makechrootpkg -cu

kernel panic when using TL-WN823N with kernel 5.3.1. Latest code in upstream branch "realtek-4.4.x" works fine. Version bump needed.

Version bump to 59.0a7199b-1 ? Many thanks

Hello Nachoc

Ok, understood. Ran into similar problems with rtl8192eu-git after a kernel update again. As it may be difficult to judge whether it is necessary to fetch new sources, I may simply update the module manually after a new kernel is available.

On the other hand, isn't there something with major minor numbering of kernel versions one can rely on, for reducing the amount of manual work. I.e.

4.14.5 -> 4.14.6 local sources work. 4.14.5 -> 4.15.X new sources required, manually run f.x. yaourt -S 8192eu-dkms

Would appreciate a comment if anybody knows for sure.

With linux 4.14.5 builds and works fine. Being a package that pulls from git you need to manually update the package to get the latest code.

This package stopped working for a few days ago, after I updated arch.

modprobe rtl8192eu

modprobe: ERROR: could not insert '8192eu': Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

dmesg | tail

... [ 6167.563239] 8192eu: Unknown symbol __vfs_read (err 0) [ 6167.563590] 8192eu: Unknown symbol vfs_read (err 0)

Tried the following package from aur: rtl8192eu-git

It worked. After removing 8192eu-dkms, the module belonging to it had to be deleted manually. The path is given in the error message when installing rtl8192eu-git. It complained about an already existing 8192eu.ko file. Maybe I ran into this problem because I tired installing rtl8192eu-git ones before removing 8192eu-dkms.

After previous attempts failed, tired installing again today (using yaourt) and it succeed.

The standard driver, rtl8xxxu, does not yet fully support the Realtek rtl8192eu chipset found in the TP-Link TL-WN822N USB wireless network adapter. Networkmanager finds networks, but can not connect to any with the standard driver.

This one does and prevents me from needing to have a separate laptop running and share access to the internet from it. Your awesome work, Nachoc, is therefore very appreciated!

Maybe others may find this information useful: I have blacklisted the standard driver (prevent it form being used) by creating the following file:


With this content:

blacklist rtl8xxxu
install rtl8xxxu /bin/false

I did not try it without the above. After a restart, the new diver was loaded. Maybe other people also find the following helpful:
To show all loaded modules:


To only show lines that contain "rtl8xxxu":

lsmod | grep rtl8xxxu

Removed dkms.conf and the patch.
I do not use this package anymore because my adapter (TP-Link TL-WN823N v2) is now supported by the rtl8xxxu driver and works fine.
