@ensarman: there is another AUR package for that, This one is for the people who indeed have problems with the aircrack-ng version.

I propose to change the repostory from to because the first isnt working for me but the aircrack one works well

Hi @zwangzw,

would you mind sharing your modified PKGBUILD? Using ./ of the mentioned git-repo / driver does not work with makepkg, since you would need root... Thanks!

I figured it out myself. Since I don't know how to send a Pull-Request in this git:

From my reading, ipx is decpreated from removed from kernel 5.15

modified PKGBUILD and used this driver:

Compiled successfully on 5.15.2-arch1-1

Install DKMS modules

==> dkms install --no-depmod -m rtl8812au -v -k 5.15.0-arch1-1

Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.15.0-arch1-1 (x86_64)

Consult /var/lib/dkms/rtl8812au/ for more information.

==> Warning, `dkms install --no-depmod -m rtl8812au -v -k 5.15.0-arch1-1' returned 10

The pkgver() function autobumps the pkgver, a manual bump would defeat the purpose of using VCS. A manual bump is to be used if there is a change in the packaging. In yay use the --devel option to check for updates.

zebulon commented on 2021-03-09 15:28 (UTC)

@eddyecho: I remember there was a guidance stating that a PKGBUILD using VCS should not be bumped if there is change to the upstream sources only. The PKGBUILD should only be changed if the building process, patches or file packaging are changed or added. Now this may have changed, I should check this. I gather it would make sense for a patch that provides compatibility with a new kernel.

eddyecho commented on 2021-03-09 11:33 (UTC)

@zebulon sure, but it doesn't hurt to change the pkgver so that yay automatically prompts the user to update.
