8814au chipset support is turned off in this driver. Please use this package instead. Also, if you plan to use both packages at the same time, make sure that you have an up-to-date package.

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

@pollito if you use the package you'll get updates. If you install with the method from the git repo you won't.

@zebulon Yes i already install the dkms and kernel headers, But whats the name of the module to modprobe? Thank... My wireless adapter is (rtl8811au). Update: nevermind i install from source and works ;)

@iyanmv it builds fine on aarch64 as far as I remember. I used it in my board. I guess it's fine if your do the $CARCH thing. I don't know if we need the options set.

iyanmv commented on 2019-04-04 15:23

I've change ARCH from any to x86_64. @zebulon I'll have a look at what you say about using $CARCH because I also have no experience.

@jpegxguy: no idea, I have no arm device to check. I am only the messenger and would only advise those who need support to report further here.

@zebulon I think Armbian uses the aircrack git without the rPI config option. Does this fail to build under arm?

zebulon commented on 2019-04-04 08:49

@iyanmv: as commented by solstice in (see pinned comment), this PKGBUILD actually only works for x86_64, due to the fact that Makefile in the repository has these presets:




Hence, we should have arch=('x86_64') and not 'any' in the PKGBUILD. That said, it is possible to make it modular using $CARCH detection during build, but I have no experience using it.

@pollito: you will need to provide further information: has the module compiled correctly (you need dkms in addition to the headers)? If yes, does it load succesfully (using modprobe)? You will find the procedure to check every step from the wiki page at:

Hi, im trying to install driver for rtl8811au and i dont know the exact steps to make the usb adapter works, i already install the headers and this driver and still not works.
