Fedora 8814au Kernel Module Compilation
For my wireless card, the Alfa AC1900, I had to compile the module to get it to work on Linux since it wasn’t already part of the kernel.
To do this you will need:
- sudo permission to
insmodthe compiled module
This^1 is the only one I found that worked for me on the latest stable linux kernel, which as of today on Fedora is 5.17.6.
First you need to install the kernel development header package.
sudo dnf install kernel-debug-devel
sudo apt install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
Next you need to make the module.
git clone https://github.com/morrownr/8814au.git
make the module using the
make command and use
insmod to load
sudo sh -c "modprobe cfg80211; insmod /home/codebam/8814au/8814au.ko"
If everything worked successfully, you should now have a loaded 8814au module that you can use along with your wireless card to connect to WiFi.
