Exactly as the title says, I have a wifi dongle on my pc and after every kernel upgrade it won’t work so I have to remove then reinstall that driver/aur package. How should I work around this?
Install the DKMS version of the driver.
For example: AUR (en) - 8192eu-dkms
Had no idea it was that simple. Thanks!
Well first try din’t work. Today I upgraded to 5.11 and as normal rtlcrap wasn’t working again. Tried to remove/reinstall but that wasn’t working, it looks like suddenly I was missing “pahole” from the system…so I went paru pahole then paru -S 8192eu-dkms, it works for now, wainting for the next kernel upgrade to see what happens next. damn rtl
I think you may have to use an AUR helper to keep the package updated.
I would recommend either aurutils (by Alad), aurpublish (by eschwartz) or baph (by Nate). I think the latter is already included in ArchLabs and the other two were written by Arch Linux Trusted Users. Don’t bother with any others, there’s a lot of tosh out there.
I’m using paru to install and update all my aur packages, it works great, never had a problem with it, I like baph as well. The 8192eu-dkms driver packages are marked as out of date but there’s nothing I can do about it.
It appears to be a -git package so just rebuilding it manually will automatically pull in the latest version.
No need, it finally works…I blame it on baph to make it working Thank you again @natemaia for all the work you did and still do for us!
