Linux kernel 6.4 will support RTL8188GU natively, and it will be released soon. (Some news said it's on June 25)

I have a bad news for you: the driver doesn't work.


You can use MCMCCRU's repo as your upstream, then apply the patch to the source code before packaging.

Here is the patch.

@jackoneill I don't have rtl8188gu, so I only verified compilation of this repo. At least, @KierPrev's and McMCCRU's could not compile under newer kernel versions, such as 5.19, 6.3.

Does actually work? The issues are full of people saying it's broken and the recent commits only seem to fix compilation errors.

@KafCoppelia I'm very glad you found it and tested it. So the driver should now work under every kernel version

@KierPrev I found lwfinger/rtl8188gu fixed all the bugs(including the one @aquilarubra mentioned) when using the latest kernel. This repository is under active maintainance. So I changed the upstream URL. Also, I tested it.

rtl8xxxu doesn't support AP mode for rtl8188gu though.

rtl8xxxu supports RTL8188GU now. Use rtl8xxxu-dkms-git instead.

Fails compilation with latest kernel. error: unknown type name ‘mm_segment_t’

@KafCoppelia McMCCRU didn't agree to add the DKMS file to their repo. My repo only adds that file, so you can use DKMS install. If only GitHub had an option to update the branches automatically..
