Thread: TP-Link AC600 Driver installation failed

  1. #1

    Question TP-Link AC600 Driver installation failed

    Hello,

    I recently bought an TP-Link AC600 T2U Plus WIFI adapter.
    I followed the instruction at https://ostechnix.com/install-tp-lin...pter-in-linux/ to install the driver.

    But at the last step:
    Code:
     sudo make dkms_install
    I'm receiving an error message:

    Code:
    mkdir -p /usr/src/8812au-5.6.4.2_35491.20191025
    cp -r * /usr/src/8812au-5.6.4.2_35491.20191025
    dkms add -m 8812au -v 5.6.4.2_35491.20191025
    
    Creating symlink /var/lib/dkms/8812au/5.6.4.2_35491.20191025/source ->

    Default AW: TP-Link AC600 Driver installation failed

    The kernel in openSUSE are not the kernel as it seems, kernel 5.3 in Leap 15.3 is a backported kernel 5.9, so it can be, that you have to patch the sources.

    But I have build many kmps in my Repo.
    So please post with the TP-Link in the USB:
    Code:
    lsusb
    Code:
    uname -a
    I can say, which driver is for your Wifi.

    Code:
    {USB_DEVICE(0x2357, 0x011F),.driver_info = RTL8821}, /* TP-Link - Archer AC600 T2U Nano */
    Maybe its this one?

    Default AW: TP-Link AC600 Driver installation failed

    Install:
    https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...5.1.x86_64.rpm

    After reboot and working Wlan, add this Repo because of the updated kernel with following command:
    Code:
    zypper ar -f https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Sauerland:/hardware/openSUSE_Leap_15.3_Update/ Sauerland-Update

    Update your System by
    Code:
    zypper up
    And see, if you get a newer rtl8812au.......

    Received
    Code:
    rtl8812AU_8821AU-kmp-default-20200731_k5.3.18_59.19-lp153.5.1
    With which command can we check the integrity of the installation?

    Best wishes!

    post:
    Code:
    uname -a
    Code:
    zypper se -si kernel rtl8812au
    You must not quote this, you can do this with one Code-Tag:
    Code:
    stephan@linux64:~> uname -a
    Linux linux64 5.13.11-lp153.5.g8c13a2d-default #1 SMP Mon Aug 16 05:23:16 UTC 2021 (8c13a2d) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    stephan@linux64:~>
    Ever the whole commandline and the whole line after the output......

    Code:

    I hope everything shows right now.

    Now all is working, you can delete this:
    Code:
    i+ | rtl8812AU_8821AU-kmp-default     | package | 20200731_k5.3.18_57-lp153.5.1    | x86_64 | (System Packages)
    And your package will be automatically updated if a new kernel is delivered.

    How do you do this?
    I could not find my way around in Yast.
