Hi Folks,

I spent some time this evening and made a PKGBUILD for the rtl8812au driver found here:
https://github.com/gnab/rtl8812au

This is specifically made for the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B (since that's what I have) but with some modification should work with other systems.

For those that are new to Arch to use these files...
1. In a non-root users home folder make a directory called "rtl8812"
2. cd into the new directory
3. Make a file named "PKGBUILD", paste the contents of the code section below
4. Make a file named "rtl8812au.install", paste the contents of the code section below
5. Run makepkg
6. Install the newly created package with pacman by running "pacman -U rtl8812au-git-r30.17d050d-1-armv7h.pkg.tar.xz" Note: replace the file name with the file created using makepkg

For full details on makepkg refer to the wiki here:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Makepkg

}


rtl8812au.install
Code: Select all
post_install ()

  depmod
}

I make no garuntees this will work for anyone else but in my case I was able to build and install this directly from my raspberry pi with no need to cross compile on a separate computer. If there is some error with the above let me know and I will update this post.

Credit for stolen pieces of other PKGBUILDs...

Hope someone finds this helpful.

gnab's driver fork doesn't work for armv5: See http://archlinuxarm.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=8758&start=10

But... Digging around, looking at debugging the latest Realtek driver, I found another fork: https://github.com/diederikdehaas/rtl8812AU

This is the latest version and patched for RPI (and arm in general). It builds.... It loads.... It don't seg fault on v5!

I've had it working on 2.4 g. Working through the options for 5g and hostapd. Woo hoo! Should work nice in the PKGBUILD

I've uploaded a later version of 8812au driver:
https://github.com/meoow/dkms-rtl8812au

Both 2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz were tested working fine.

meow, any idea if/what the differences are with yours and the one technosf posted?

That's odd, I tried to build both the OP's driver and meoow's and got errors on both. It says it's missing Linux/compiler-gcc5.h. If I add it (from online) to the include dir, I get a bunch more errors about implicit declarations and multiple definitions.

I find it odd because I just built the driver for it a couple months ago without too much problem (though, I don't think 5ghz worked reliably). The only thing I've seen change is maybe the release of GCC5 a few months ago. How could a compiler version change mess up the build process so much? I know implicit declarations are a warning now treated as errors, hence the Werror in the log, but I didn't think anything compiler related can cause every function to be defined twice.

Anyone else having any luck, or are we gonna have to wait until the driver gets fixed to build on gcc5?

Hello,

I just purchased an Edimax EW-7811DAC that I think uses the same chip. I've compiled and installed the driver that meow uploaded but even though the module is loaded, there is no way to make it work. e.g. wicd-curses says there is no wireless device to connect to.

Any ideas?

The device works great in Raspbian following the instructions on this page:

https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 3&p=782878

Best regards and thanks for your help / Fernando

Hey,

Couple thoughts..

How are you verifying that the module is loaded?

Run dmesg -c, unplug the adapter, plug it back in, run dmesg again post up the results. Chances are the kernel isn't recognizing the adapter, the dmesg output should indicate what is doing getting recongized.

Cheers

And here the steps I did:

Code: Select all
pacman -Syu   

pacman -S wget

wget https://github.com/meoow/dkms-rtl8812au/archive/master.zip

pacman -S unzip

pacman -Syu

pacman -S base-devel

pacman -S dkms

unzip master.zip

mv dkms-rtl8812au-master dkms-rtl8812au

sudo cp -r dkms-rtl8812au/8812au-4.3.8 /usr/src

sudo pacman -S linux-raspberrypi-headers

sudo dkms install 8812au/4.3.8

depmod

modprobe 8812au

lsmod



Thanks again

Re: rtl8812 wifi adapter

Postby Grazz256 » Fri Aug 07, 2015 7:55 pm

The issue is that the driver isn't recognizing the device, there is a way to force the kernel to use a module for a device but I don't know how to do it (or have time to find it..). For a slightly harder fix that should work you can..

Open usb_intf.c..

On line 261ish you'll find...
{USB_DEVICE(0x7392, 0xA822),.driver_info = RTL8812}, /* Edimax - Edimax */

Add a line after it that...
{USB_DEVICE(0x7392, 0xA812),.driver_info = RTL8812}, /* Edimax - Edimax */

recompile/install/insmod/depmod

Cheers
