Try rtl8814au-dkms-git I think it provides the 8821 modules

Every time I get a kernel update, I have to re-install this via AUR using my smartphone connected via USB to re-download and re-build the driver.

Is there a way I can mitigate this, e.g. that it will automatically rebuild from cache every time my kernel gets updated? I guess, that the Kernel-headers are missig than, if I remember correctly, they are always downloaded.

Or is there a complete different alternative to this package, maybe in mhwd ?

No, it does not work due to the use of the extramodules folder

khvalera commented on 2021-05-06 09:45 (UTC)

@andym - this is not a dkms package, you need to rebuild it when updating the kernel

andym commented on 2021-04-21 09:33 (UTC)

I am afraid this does not work due to the use of the extramodules folder. The preferred method of installing is now using dkms to avoid having to re-install after each kernel update. See, for example, rtl8221cu-dkms-git. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=252477
