Can you please show me where I can find instructions to compile RTL8192EU driver for retropie 3.3.1? I am quite new to building and compiling drivers on linux.
I’ve tried a few instructions including cross compiling to OpenElec 5.0 but keep bumping into compilation errors.
My wireless component is a generic USB that I’ve bought from eBay and it has RTL8192EU chipset. I’ve tested this wireless dongle on Windows 7 and it is working perfectly with the drivers provided on the CD. On the CD, they have included 3 drivers for linux:
`- RTL8188 8192EUS_linux_v126.96.36.199_1148
I assume all these drivers will work with my chipset as I’ve inspected the *.inf file and they have included the above chipsets.
I am confused with all the different versions of kernel, drivers and gcc. Do I need the same kernel version as seen in the drivers name for it to work?
I’ve tried to get the kernel headers through apt-get but the package doesnt seem to exist.
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) E: Unable to locate package linux-headers-4.1.13-v7 E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'linux-headers-4.1.13-v7'
Please help me!danmurphyParticipant01/10/2016 at 01:49Post count: 3
I’ve obtained the headers for 4.1.13 (linux-headers-4.1.13-v7+_4.1.13-v7+-2_armhf.deb).
dpkg -i linux-headers-4.1.13-v7+_4.1.13-v7+-2_armhf.deb
and it installed successfully.
Then I get compilation errors when I do:
sudo make ARCH=arm
I’ve attached the output.txt and the file that has warnings during compilation.
should I be modifying the os_intfs.c? please help.
Thank you.danmurphyParticipant01/10/2016 at 08:43Post count: 3
