As far as I understand, upstream provides the driver needed. tree /var/lib/dkms /rtw88/ and tree /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/updates/.

You can read upstreams's README also. Don't miss the last paragraph ;)

@PRESFIL do you think we should report this to dkms upstream?

Also ... I was wondering if this driver has something to do with the Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8822BE Bluetooth 4.2 Adapter because I'm having a lot of problems with it, and I was thinking in fill a bug in the upstream.

You can try to look inside make logs. Search this files with

find /var/lib/dkms/rtw88/ -iname '*log*'

UPD1: OK, now I'm experiencing this error too.

But apparently the build is successful. Maybe this is some minor bug in dkms. It says that there is no such module in the current kernel:

Running module version sanity check.
 - Original module
   - No original module exists within this kernel

, but it is there!

All modules after the build are present here:


The original ones remain in their places. It seems that the build is successful and it is not critical.

@PRESFIL I actually got that message when updating from r44.d4fd1ae to r50.cbe75c9 so now I have the latest version (r50.cbe75c9) but I've had that message in previous updates.

As you can see I have the error also reinstalling the package:

Obviously this time is with r50.cbe75c9

I cannot reproduce that...

  1. If you would provide more information about how the build process went, uname-r, dkms status after installing the package.

  2. Did you perform kernel updates during the build of this package?

  3. Also interesting is why your version is not the latest - my current version is rtw88, r50.cbe75c9. You can compare it yourself.

Why I'm having this kind of messages when I update the package?

Error! the module/version combo rtw88-r44.d4fd1ae is not located in the DKMS tree.

Latest version is working correctly.

librewish commented on 2020-09-26 13:48

The package is available in chaotic-aur repo

You can add chaotic-aur repo for the prebuilt package

It looks like the driver itself is broken since yesterday. Would it be possible to change the source of this package to the last working commit?

Mthw commented on 2020-09-26 11:14

Is this package broken for anyone else? I can install but dkms fails. LOG:
