i wanted to switch to linux-lts (install linux-lts{,-headers} and remove linux{,-headers}) but this package is keeping me from removing linux-headers

i can confirm the driver works on linux-lts

i suggest moving kernel headers packages to optional dependencies like dkms:

linux-hardened-headers (optional) - build modules against the HARDENED kernel
linux-headers (optional) - build modules against the Arch kernel
linux-lts-headers (optional) - build modules against the LTS kernel
linux-zen-headers (optional) - build modules against the ZEN kernel

The driver is broken again with Linux 5.19.2. I already opened an issue.

I had a Bad return status error on 5.18.14-AMD, and the log reported that the gcc version was incompatible. I checked the gcc versions and found that gcc and gcc-libs had recently been updated to 12.1.0-3 on my system. I was able to install the module after temporarily downgrading gcc and gcc-libs to 12.1.0-2 and reinstalling the dkms module.

I'm on a fresh install of 5.18.12, getting an error when DKMS tries to install the module at the end:

it works at home with wpa2, but i just tried to connect with a peap wifi network (username and password), it doesnt work with this driver on kernel 5.18, i downgraded the kernel to 5.17 and it works again

@tomaspinho Just installed and working on my laptop. Many thanks, as always, for providing and maintaining this.

by the way my package manager yay doesn't update it automatically, and yay tells me the version is 1.0.5.r36.gca4abd8 although i have 1.0.5.r140.gbe733dc installed, the 1.0.5.r36.gca4abd8 is also in the .SRCINFO, i think updating .SRCINFO would fix this.

can confirm working on my laptop, thanks for fixing
