There was an issue with the latest kernel 4.20-rc2 just today which has now been fixed upstream, by a very fine and able maintainer :)

Only the very latest kernel was affected, and 4.19 has been working nicely since the last fix went in at 4.19-rc1.

@zebulon If you are still tracking, you would be advised to pull the latest commit, before the hordes arrive complaining about the latest kernel ...

Can you provide more details of your difficulties, including any error messages. That way someone might be able to help you.

Simply stating the build is broken is not really all that helpful.

This driver has been tested extensively by the current maintainer, and the OpenSUSE developers.

The (upstream) build is most assuredly not broken with any current kernel ... yet :)

Seems the build is currently broken with Linux 4.19.1.

@zebulon: definitely!

As a follow up, I am still monitoring the state of the 5.3.4 driver. A lot of work has been done by aircrack-ng group on Github and a lot of fixes and enhancements have been pushed in the last few weeks. Should we give it a go?

@maarroyo: Would be useful if you were more specific about the build issue you are having. Check your build logs and copy the error message. Check your kernel sources are installed for both kernels. I have both the "default" kernel (as of writing 4.18.12.arch1-1) and linux-ck from the AUR and it compiles correctly for both kernels. It has been compiling for the Archlinux stock kernel for a while.

I have the default kernel and LTS versions on my system. However, this only seems to build the module for 4.14 LTS. Is this a limitation of the driver or the PKGBUILD?

@astewartau: your kernel headers (provided by package 'linux-headers') must match your kernel (provided by package 'linux'). Your error message shows that when DKMS tries to install the module, it detects your running kernel as 4.18.9-arch1-1-ARCH but kernel headers are still at version 4.18.8-arch1-1-ARCH, thus not the same version. You need to make sure both 'linux' and 'linux-header' packages are in sync version-wise. Installing linux-headers may trigger all of this automatically, if not, reinstall this AUR package and it will also trigger recompilation.

I am unable to install this properly. I receive the following error:

(1/2) Install DKMS modules
==> dkms install rtl8812au/ -k 4.18.9-arch1-1-ARCH
==> Unable to install module rtl8812au/ for kernel 4.18.8-arch1-1-ARCH: Missing kernel headers.

I don't really know what it means, but it sounds like this package needs to be updated for the new kernel version 4.18.9.

now using it for two days and it works great
