Sounds like that should be done. I'm here comparing rtl8192eu (this) and rtl8192eu-git as well wondering if this takes from a release branch or latest commits like -git releases usually do. It seems they both do the same thing in this case.

This package provides the same package content that rtl8192eu-git: both provide a VCS package by using the latest commit from Git repository. rtl8192eu-git uses branch 'realtek-4.4.x' which is the default, hence it is the same branch used in here.

Can these two packages get merged?

Hi there. Is there a way to build this locally? I run out of internet everytime my kernel updates so there would be great to have the sources stored locally and build. Thanks!

I've made the necessary changes, and its now building from local sources and working great. Thanks!

Why this package is flagged as obsolete?

As commented by the mantaniner.

"This package will clone the upstream repo every time you build it. So feel free to rebuild the package. It will fetch the up-to-date code even if the PKGBUILD file is not changed."

This module breaks sudo for me for some reason (even after re-installing Arch). When I run sudo airmon-ng start <interface>, the output of airmon-ng freezes, sudo doesn't work, and various parts of Linux start freezing/misbehaving. Even modprobe -r and rmmod stop working, so I have to reboot. Can anyone else confirm?

Well it asks me to install linux-headers-5.12.15 even though I'm using Xanmod-Cacule Kenrel 5.12.12. I think the dependency should be removed.

Here is a truncated output for

LANG=en_US.UTF-8 pamac install rtl8192eu

==> Starting build()... Makefile:1341: *** recipe commences before first target. Stop. ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting...

I have found the problem (why drivers doesn't work on kernels 4.14-4.15) and solution. So, we need to do some steps: 1. Install this package or driver direct from upstream link 2. Type lsmod in terminal, we wil see probes 8192eu (that's our driver which we just install) and our big problem - rtl8xxxu -the driver pack for wi-fi built in the kernel. This 2 probes conflict with each other. So we need to prevent rtl8xxxu from loading on system boot. 3. Use, for example, Grub Customizer or edit etc/degault/grub. Add to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="modprobe.blacklist=rtl8xxxu,mac80211", save changes and reboot. (mac80211 depends on rtl8xxxu) 4. Profit! Our wi-fi adapter works great.

Sorry, I'm confused. If the rtl8xxxu driver has already been integrated into the kernel, there's no reason for reinstalling it. Just plug your USB WiFi adapter and use it. However, I usually keep an up-to-date clone of this package(maintained by makepkg -o) to prevent condition that all kernel models crashed and I have to connect to the Internet to update the kernel.

The driver does not compile anymore with kernel 4.15. Looks like this is fixed upstream. Can you please update the package?

This package will clone the upstream repo every time you build it. So feel free to rebuild the package. It will fetch the up-to-date code even if the PKGBUILD file is not changed.

I'm currently having problems when I update my kernel, I always need to reboot and reinstall the package to make it work again with the kernel. I guess this is due to the fact that the files of the module are not moved when the kernel is updated.

There's a dkms version of this package, where the dkms hook of pacman will take care of reinstalling models every time you update the kernel.

this package is missing the bc dependency, pls. fix.


I installed this package on Manjaro with pamac. All was working fine but after 5.4.35-1-MANJARO x86_64 Kernel update, even deinstalling and reinstalling the packages gives me build error: "Makefile:1341: *** La recette commence avant la première cible. Arrêt." (sorry for French)

Could you please run LANG=en_US.UTF-8 pamac install rtl8192eu? It might provide you with English output.
