@escapement: this is good to read. Note that credits go to the patch developers. I am only a packager and tester at the moment!

Working like a champ with 4.15 kernel! I'm running Manjaro... I got lazy... I don't know if they push out the kernels before Arch officially does, but I've have 4.15 for a while... Couldn't use 4.14 because there were problems with my amd graphics... Thank you so much for fixing this!

@Foolz: good to hear. Modprobe failing to load is probably related to Manjaro specifics, look at the logs for more info.

Thank you so much for your work. I wasn't able to load the module with modprobe earlier. However, after the latest kernel update today, everything works again, for some reason.

I have just pushed the patches for kernel 4.15, should now compile with the kernel in Testing. Please re-install the driver for an automated recompilation via DKMS.

@escapement: kernel 4.15 is still in testing. Probably this driver will require patches, will see if they are ready.

@Foolz: can you manually load the module with modprobe? You need to enquire at Manjaro forums though, I am not a user and cannot really help there. Do they use different kernel patches than Arch?

Using MANJARO with the latest 4.14.15-1 and having issue loading the Module. (which after the update, they system wouldn't load the module automatically) the system simply wouldn't found the module. Even it is clearly existed under the /lib/modules/4.14.15-1-MANJARO.

Tried sudo depmod -a, and so far, nothing conventional works.

Arch just updated to kernel 15.0-1 and the build totally fails... My linux C skills are rusty, but I'm trying to debug.... here's the build error

You are my hero... I bought this Alfa AWUS1900 under the promise it was linux compatible... tried with Fedora... tried with Ubuntu ... using the drivers I found in git land... no joy on either... actually bricked my fedora install... Then I switched to manjaro... I should have used arch in the first place but was lazy... Installed your package and now everything is happy... Thank you
