UPDATE: it was fixed on the same day by owner of the repo :) Hi the latest update thru #4e57601 (upstream commit) removed the Wifi I also tried to install directly from the repo and it gives bunch of error related to functions dont have specific members. I opened an issue at the upstream repo as well. Issue #229

I have been using this package for a while on my laptop. I got an dkms error while updating to kernel 5.15.93-1 (on Manjaro). It gave a bad return status and exited with 10 .

Here is the make.log that error was pointing out under

/var/lib/dkms/rtw89-dkms/git/build/make.log ;

I've flagged the package "out-of-date" with the request to include the _b and _be modules as @compgamer89 already suggested.

For my own use i've modified the package, source can be found at

For those who need rtw_8852be: You need to modify dkms.conf and PKGBUILD as follows.

dkms.conf: change module names 2 and 3 to rtw_8852b and rtw_8852be (or add them as index 4 and 5). Important: put the make command in single quotes, i.e. change make to 'make' Delete version specifier

PKGBUILD: change sha256sum for dkms.conf to 'SKIP' or insert the correct value.

Afterwards you can build and install the package. It worked (at least) for me (for kernel 5.15, 6.0 and 6.1)

You can find the code here:

dkms: pkgbuild:

Hopefully, this helps with 8852be...

@JerryXiao @xz-dev , some updates on this. I found no problem with manually compiling and installing the rtw89 modules, which installs the rtw_8852be driver.

It works without any problems. It's really just this package that for some reason does not built/install it.

I have tried tweaking with dkms.conf to include this module there, but never managed to get makepkg to include it, not sure what is missing...

@JerryXiao I am facing similar troubles as the other guys here, trying to get the rtw_8852be module to work...

From what I read on the upstream repo, the reason why this module does not get built is due to missing firmware, which should now be a part of the linux-firmware package. The author claims that any recent linux distro should have such firmware, but not sure if that is the case with current arch. Point is this module is not build, not sure if what @compgamer89 says will make it happen, can you please have a look?

There is already an issue upstream:

compgamer89 commented on 2022-12-04 07:40 (UTC)

@xz-dev You need to retain rtw89pci and rtw89core modules, so as to patch/replace the default versions that come with the kernel. The git branch contains new code there which is in linux-next right now, but not yet in mainline (i.e. isn't in 6.1 RCs and won't be in linux-6.1).

Would actually suggest to package maintainer to include the a/ae, b/be, and c/ce modules and to bump the version specifier to include 5.[0-9]+. and 6.[0-1]. to allow for 8852b support until linux-6.2 is out.

Build success, install module success, but can't enable module.

It not install 8852be module. But I can follow rtw89 README to install it.
