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:


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

Important: Use ip and iw instead of ifconfig and iwconfig

@mrpanda so probably it's an issue with recent kernels. Have a look at this open issue upstream, subscribe to it just in case someone figure it out, and wwait till they fix it (kernel or driver). I'm sorry but I can't help here, I just maintain the PKGBUILD.

mrpanda commented on 2019-10-01 17:39

@iyanmv Yes it has compatible chipset. My point was that I was using this driver till kernel 5.3.1 update so I was expected to see some error during installation that's it.

iyanmv commented on 2019-10-01 06:43

@mrpanda why should it work this driver for you or any others from AUR? Are you sure your Qoltec uses a compatible chipset? Of course, you will be able to install any of them, but that's not the point, right?

mrpanda commented on 2019-09-30 22:27

none of the drivers in AUR support my Qoltec 57010 hardware rtl8811au no installation problems , but it seems that it has no power , the indicator is dead.

@Gatenkaas The driver works for me on kernel 5.3.1, and I'm using TP-Link T9UH. However, this driver is nowhere close to the performance I'd get with the package rtl8814au-dkms-git. The signal strength is about 30% less and the upload speed is at least 80% slower. Sadly, the rtl8814au-dkms-git driver has stopped working after I upgraded to 5.3.1. Otherwise, I wouldn't be using the aircrack driver.

@Gatenkaas File any bug reports (Search before creating a new issue) in the upstream github. They can fix it there.

Gatenkaas commented on 2019-09-23 16:04

None of the current drivers in AUR for kernel 5.3 seem to support my tp-link T9UH v1 anymore [8814au]. No building problems at all - but the device has no power (lights). However lsusb shows the device, but modprobe hangs. No problems on kernel 5.2.

I have deleted the hardcoded branch in the sources array as suggested by @jpegxguy. v5.6.4.1 is currently the active branch so I'll keep it. If you have any problems, please try a different branch and check issues in the upstream repo.

jpegxguy commented on 2019-09-20 22:12

@capoeira I disagree with that philosophy, but you can certainly go by it.

I mean, Linux 3.10 would work fine, but I wouldn't use it for my PC. It's old, less features and bugfixes.

The driver you chose is maintained and contains none of the work that aircrack have put into it for unification and to support all the chips e.t.c.

@jpegguy thanks, but seams to work nicely for me. "If it aint broke, don't fix it"
