The driver does not compile anymore with kernel 4.15.

Looks like this is fixed upstream. Can you please update the package?

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.

Duplicated with package rtl8192eu-git. If you have any problems with the driver itself, please contact the upstream.

Thanks for your work! This driver works excellent on LTS kernel 4.4.x in Manjaro. Very good connection speed. But almost doesn't work on kernel 4.9 and higher... I can only see other SSIDs but can't connect to my network. Can this be fixed?

DOES NOT WORK. IN ARCH SAME

I've done some changes to the PKGBUILD to build the driver on a raspberry B+:

$ cat rpi.patch
6c6
< arch=("x86_64")
---
> arch=("x86_64" "armv6h")
21a22,24
> if grep -q 'model name.*ARM' /proc/cpuinfo; then
> sed -i -e 's/CONFIG_PLATFORM_I386_PC = y/CONFIG_PLATFORM_I386_PC = n/' -e 's/CONFIG_PLATFORM_ARM_RPI = n/CONFIG_PLATFORM_ARM_RPI = y/' Makefile
> fi

Thank you! Will there be a 32-bit version?

Does work on my Arch 64-bit setup. Though the driver takes a long time to activate or something. Wicd is having problems configuring it. I have an USB dongle with the 8192eu chip.

When it is up it gives godd fast connection it seems, and so far stable. It's just at boot.

I might try networkmanager. iwconfig and such doesn't seem to like wext otherwise I'd try some textbased config/app.

Thanks for the upload to Aur!
