ASUS USB-AC53 Nano rtl88x2bu Driver for CentOS 8

Post by Dark_Turtle » 2020/04/02 14:30:52

Hi All,

I've been trying to get my ASUS USB-AC53 Nano working in CentOS 8 with no luck. I am attempting to build and install the rtl88x2bu driver from the following repository: https://github.com/cilynx/rtl88x2bu. However, it fails when I try the command below.

Code: Select all

[centos@localhost rtl88x2bu]$ sudo dkms build -m rtl88x2bu -v ${VER}

Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel.  Skipping...

Building module:

make -j4 KERNELRELEASE=4.18.0-147.5.1.el8_1.x86_64 KVER=4.18.0-147.5.1.el8_1.x86_64 src=/usr/src/rtl88x2bu-5.6.1......(bad exit status: 2)
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.18.0-147.5.1.el8_1.x86_64 (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/rtl88x2bu/5.6.1/build/make.log for more information.
I have also attached make.log for your reference.

Some suggestions I have tried are placing USER_EXTRA_CFLAGS=-Wno-error=incompatible-pointer-types in Makefile which does not work.

What is the output from the lsusb.py command that refers to the adapter in question?

Here is the output from lsusb.py

Code: Select all

 3-2             0b05:184c 00  2.10  480MBit/s 500mA 1IF  (Realtek 802.11ac NIC 123456)
I believe the driver from the repository should be compatible with the wifi adapter as I've tried it under Ubuntu 18.04 and it works fine.

Unfortunately that model is not supported by any kernel module in the CentOS 8 kernel. Nor does it appear that the ELRepo third party repo contains any kmod package supplying a driver.

I've been having a quick look at this driver (having been conned by an Amazon listing saying a USB wifi dongle was Linux compatible), the sticking point has been the way upstream backports kernel changes, and made a few tweaks to version checks to allow it to build.

In my case my item is 0bda:b812.

Now, while I can get it to build without error, sadly it doesn't work.
