@sixtyfive I've got about the same problem as you (but I have Archer T3U Plus), but I don't have enough knowledge to understand how to "build package manually". Installing via makepkg -si doesn't show any errors, but it doesn't work. I've tried to understand what's going on in the PKGBUILD, but it wasn't successful

Can you, please, provide a list of commands I should execute to get this thing working?

upd. Nevermind, thanks. This AUR worked for me (!!!): https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rtl88x2bu-dkms-git/ (for future researchers)

As I've understood, this AUR was was not intended for my device

Apparently bc needs to be added as a dep since it fails to build without it:

DKMS make.log for rtl8822bu-5.8.7.4 for kernel 5.13.10-arch1-1 (x86_64)

/bin/sh: line 1: bc: command not found

So, one successful yay -Syu rtl8822bu-dkms linux-headers later, dkms informs me the module has been loaded into the kernel. But nothing in dmesg. No addition if. Nothing in nm-applet, either. What am I missing to get the adapter working? (I'm stil on 5.10.52 ... does this only work with 5.12?)

Edit: thought that perhaps my adapter might not be supported. According to the jeremyb31 repository, it's for revision 3 of the Archer T4U only. Mine says 3.20 ... not sure if that's the same or a different one. Anyhow, manually cloned and built that repository and insmod'd the .ko ... and voilá, the adapter works. So I guess your patched version is for 5.12 only. Leaving this comment here for posteriority.

@FabioLolix You might want to avoid jumping to conclusions in the future.

Also a package that did not show up in my initial AUR searches seems to have a working build of 5.8.7.1 based on the comments. I've informed the maintainer of the updated driver.

Brother, you don't seem to be paying attention to what I'm telling you. This code for driver 5.8.7.4 was pulled from an upstream release here: https://www.cudytech.com/wu1200_software_download

The github repos you have asked me to write a new pull request for are on version 5.8.7.1. The patches should be very similar, but I cannot guarantee the 5.8.7.4 release doesn't contain additional code required to get 5.8.7.1 compiling. So you can use the 5.12 commit to identify what needs to be updated for 5.8.7.1.

As for what exactly has changed in 5.8.7.4, I haven't dug into the code, but there are differences. It is not worth my time to test/compile/debug these changes to 5.8.7.1 as well.

How much outdated? Both have been patched for 5.10 from commit message, your repo have a patch for 5.10 and one for 5.12

BannedPatriot commented on 2021-07-12 20:53 (UTC)

Those are outdated drivers. you can read through my two commits if you wish to write a patch for 5.8.7.1.

FabioLolix commented on 2021-07-12 20:50 (UTC)

Ok, then send the pacthes to https://github.com/EntropicEffect/rtl8822bu and https://github.com/Mephysto666/rtl8822bu

BannedPatriot commented on 2021-07-12 20:46 (UTC)

@FabioLolix source is https://www.cudytech.com/wu1200_software_download, which is why the only git history are the patches.

FabioLolix commented on 2021-07-12 20:42 (UTC)

So you have made a copy of one of the rtl8822bu repository and erased the git history

For this pkgbuild you have invented the license (rtl8822bu don't have one), invented the pkgver= and made a VCS pkgbuild disguised as stable without a pkgver function
