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

kyak commented on 2020-08-18 05:41

@capoeira pikaur supports that.

capoeira commented on 2020-08-17 16:07

is there any aur-helper that will update git packages with -Syu?

kyak commented on 2020-08-17 14:45

@iyanmv of course, sorry for the noise!

iyanmv commented on 2020-08-17 11:13

@kyak: yes, it does. Probably you are using an old commit. Remember that this is a git PKGBUILD so it is your responsibility to keep it up to date.

This kernel module doesn't build with 5.8.1-arch1-1

Ah, I thought they put the most stable branch as default, not the newest. Though it might not be as stable for all users.

iyanmv commented on 2020-08-15 08:07

@jpegxguy because they often change the default branch upstream, and not all the times the default one is necessary the one that works the best. Right now, yes, I'm pointing to the default one (see pinned comment), but maybe it changes in the future.

jpegxguy commented on 2020-08-02 13:46

Why are you forcing the branch in the source array?

solstice commented on 2020-07-09 09:05

You can make it build on arm (at least rpis) by patching the Makefile.

I suggest changing the PKGBUILD by adding a prepare() function like:

prepare() {
        if [[ $CARCH =~ ^arm ]] ;then
                cd ${srcdir}/${_pkgbase}
                sed -i 's/CONFIG_PLATFORM_I386_PC = y/CONFIG_PLATFORM_I386_PC = n/g' Makefile
                sed -i 's/CONFIG_PLATFORM_ARM_RPI = n/CONFIG_PLATFORM_ARM_RPI = y/g' Makefile
