This package now forces to use the branch v5.6.4.2 (the one that works better for me), which is the default one in the remote repository although they still mention branch v5.3.4 as the stable one. If you have any issues, please leave a comment, and also tried to change the branch in the source array. For example, change it to:

Important: Use ip and iw instead of ifconfig and iwconfig

This works in kernel 6.8.9, but fails to build with kernel 6.9.1 Something about: ioctl_cfg80211.c:464:17: error: too many arguments to function ‘cfg80211_ch_switch_started_notify’

The full build log can be found

Hi, i used yay -aSyu --devel to update the driver and it works now, thanks very much

ec22583: If you use yay, I think you can also use yay -aSyu --devel to update git packages.

ec22583: I think yay -S rtl88xxau-aircrack-dkms-git will not use the latest commit from upstream unless you force to do a clean build. What is the output of pacman -Q rtl88xxau-aircrack-dkms-git?

hi iyanmv:

Devices I have it on: Archer T2U, Archer T3U. I have them on my laptop and desktop respectively. I have just did the command

yay -S rtl88xxau-aircrack-dkms-git to make sure i'm on the latest commit.

and yes, I can confirm it does not work on linux 6.8.1 (for me at least)

ec22583: it works just fine on my side. Are you using the latest commit? Remember that this is a -git package so it is your responsibility (or use any good AUR helper) to update regularly to follow upstream.

Does not work on kernel 6.8.1

ec22583 commented on 2024-03-12 23:12 (UTC)

Kernel version 6.8 (core testing) does not work. My wifi adapter does not work but I can confirm it works on 6.7.9

I confirm this works out of the box, kernel 6.7.6
