There is a patch making this dkms module compile&work on Debian and now openSUSE. I tested the patch on openSUSE TW and it works with kernel 5.10.rc5 . see https://github.com/brektrou/rtl8821CU/issues/100#issuecomment-733511163

@simona I am afraid not. I have a kernel supported USB dongle too and it works right after plugging. Realtek does not (it has led too,not lighting).

newer kernel core has it inside?

I have tested Manjaro kernel 5.10.rc4 right now on "testing" branch Intel i5 64bit system. Unfortunately it fails stating "error 10" when switching kernel. I have the git tree locally too and manually trying to build fails too.

Update: Here is the reason why. Unless those API calls change there is a little hope it will work in 5.10

bug on armv7, attempts to enter /path/to/kernel/headers/build/armv7l; the directory is however /path/to/kernel/headers/build/arm

Also: https://github.com/brektrou/rtl8821CU/issues/85 - not sure if this is packager issue or upstream. - Too busy&tired to dig further...

@Cuiyn There has been an update on https://github.com/brektrou/rtl8821CU. My dongle is working on Linux 5.8.3.

@Ilgaz Thanks

Because it fails to work on Linux 5.8.x, I am using the modified version on https://github.com/mbrysa/rtl8821CU, and this works fine for me on 5.8.1.

I am using the manual/git download dkms version and it fails to compile on Linux 5.8.x which just released to stable. Saying for heads up.

@Skallwar I should note that the error I was getting doesn't stop the driver from working. In fact, I'm using it right now to post this comment. Perhaps I should've mentioned this earlier. So the error doesn't really impact me, I just thought it was interesting that someone else was getting the same error.

@janentikan That's strange, the fork just change the name and version of the driver

@strobelite Try remove your AUR helper cache to force a clean build. If it does not work, provide a log and I will switch to "https://github.com/ctwfei/rtl8821cu" while trying to solve your problem. I don't like to rely on a fork but if there is no option, so be it.
