@Knecker really glad to hear that! Thanks for the kind words :)

I just came by to thank you very very much for this driver package! Without, I could not have made the switch from Windows to Linux and now I am running with Manjaro / Arch and left the evil times behind :) So again, thank you very much for your efforts!

That fixed it, many thanks :-)

And again thanks for maintaining this.

@swillber this had already been fixed upstream (master branch), but I forgot to bump the version in AUR. Sorry! Could you try again?

Getting a build error since the release of kernel 4.20 before that it was fine. Many thanks for providing this. Don't know if it's directly due kernel changes or something else that's changed because of the new kernel release. Is this the right place to report this or if I should feedback via github?

Here's an extract from /var/lib/dkms/rtl8821ce/1.0.1.r18.g8c9149a/build/make.log that has the only error message I can see...

Bumped up the package version to force an upgrade to the latest code in the upstream git repo, which is now compatible with Linux 4.19.

@dracut, thanks for the praise and feedback! I was solving my own problem with the exact same laptop model :)

It works for Lenovo e470 (RTL8821CE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter). Finally I can remove USB WiFi adapter and use built-in. Thank you for your work!
