@zebulon thanks. now I see the problem with the recomended driver vs chip on the wiki

zebulon commented on 2017-10-04 09:03

@capoeira: it is a 8811au. You should use rtl8821au-dkms-git as explained in the documentation. 8811au is only supported by driver v5.1.5. This package uses v5.2.9, only for 8812au at the moment.

this is my vendor id, though my antena looks totaly diferent than the picture:
because of this I always thought my device is 8812au.

However, I have big problems with it since that kernel problem started.
Guess I'll buy a new antenna

@thelinuxguy @zebulon Ok, well deserved RTFM, my bad :-)

If rtl8821au-dkms-git works for you, that means the chipset of your wireless adapter is probably RTL8811AU or RTL8821AU.
I believe that the name shown in dmesg is determined in Makefile:
ifneq ($(CONFIG_RTL8812A)_$(CONFIG_RTL8821A), n_n)

RTL871X = rtl8812a
ifeq ($(CONFIG_USB_HCI), y)
MODULE_NAME = 8812au

If you have the Vendor ID and Product ID of your wireless adapter, you may search WikiDevi to see if you can find out the chipset used.

it's strange. this driver wont be started when I plug in my antena,
when I install rtl8821au-dkms-git it will work,
BUT 8812 should be my driver since DMESG says: [ 8678.390893] usbcore: registered new interface driver 8812au

That's right, you never put any package that is in base-devel as a makedependency. Otherwise you would need to add gcc, etc... Linux-headers was debatable, but the policy is that since there are several versions of the kernel, they can only be an optdependency (here, inherited from dkms dependency).

@lacouture I'm going to be the bad boy here and tell you to RTFM. fakeroot is in base-devel which you HAVE to install if you want to do anything in aur...

lacouture commented on 2017-09-19 21:43

Hi. This package fails to compile if fakeroot is missing.
You might want to add fakeroot to the makedepends list.
Thanks for maintaining this packet.

I have now uploaded a new version, which respects the git guidelines. pkgver incorporates now the git HEAD revision. Regarding the makedepends: only git and bc. linux-headers are not anymore a makedepends, only an optdepends inherited from dkms. A dkms user is supposed to know he needs linux headers.
