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:

source=('rtl88xxau::git+https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au.git#branch=v5.3.4'

Read the README.me to learn how to set your interface in monitor mode (and other things).

Important: Use ip and iw instead of ifconfig and iwconfig

@iyanmv Sorry for the faulty report, I was sure I was using the newest commit but obviously wasn't, my fault pardon me :)

iyanmv commented on 2020-12-31 14:32

@cedricbambooza I cannot replicate your issue. And this is a git package, it is your responsibility to use the last commit since I will not update the pkver every time there is a new commit upstream [1]. If you are using an AUR helper, probably it is not pulling latest commits and you are stuck in r1123 (based on the logs you put upstream)

@cedricbambooza if it's an AUR issue, why do you report upstream? I will have a look.

[SOLVED] Package does build but won't install through dkms on Kernel 5.10.3 as described here https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au/issues/803 Version from Github works with both dkms and make install

used an old commit, my fault ^^

Package does not build against kernel 5.10 anymore, explained in https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au/issues/762

Solution in https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au/pull/773 New Git branch ee9619b

@kotrfa you were not using the last commit from upstream. When you did a fresh installation (I am assuming by fresh you mean to clone again the package or do a clean build using some AUR helper), you got the latest commit, which probably includes some fixes for the latest version of the linux kernel.

And if rlt8814au was moved elsewhere, the description and keywords are out of date

Just yesterday, I was getting:

when updating the system.

Reinstalling this package from fresh helped for some reason.
