What are the step to build this driver on kernel 5.3.0-46-generic ?

Running the make command on the new kernel give me an error on timer structure on the kernel source code (there has been some change) and I can't go on with this.

So how can I build this on the current kernel ?


You can take rtl8812(14)au driver that is building with new kernels form this repo:


It has been patched for the 5.3 kernel.

  • I know... I've a ALFA AWUS 1900 and in my case this driver is the worst choise... I don't know but it is very slow compared to other drivers, if my connection reach 70Mb/s in download (speedtest) with this one of aircrack i touch almost 20Mb/s in download – Bob91 Apr 28 at 15:12
  • This is exatly same driver, but with additional patches supporting new kernels. – Pilot6 Apr 28 at 15:13
  • I don't know man ! In my case the driver is very slow and it seems that the connection isn't stable as the other one... Have you any hint ? – Bob91 Apr 28 at 15:19
  • It is a completely different question. You asked why you couldn't install a driver from a specific github repo, not why the ohter one is slow. There may be a ton of reasons why why Wi-Fi is slower. You can't compare two drivers on the same system. – Pilot6 Apr 28 at 15:34
  • yes you're right it's a different question but it is related to my problem – Bob91 Apr 28 at 15:43
