Compiling with DKMS

# sudo make -f Makefile.dkms install

Compiling for NVidia Jeston Nano


Compiling for Raspberry Pi (3)

Install kernel headers and other dependencies.

# sudo apt-get install linux-image-rpi-rpfv linux-headers-rpi-rpfv raspberrypi-kernel-headers dkms build-essential bc

Install kernel headers:

sudo wget -O /usr/local/bin/rpi-source && sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/rpi-source && /usr/local/bin/rpi-source -q --tag-update

Edit Makefile and turn on CONFIG_PLATFORM_ARM_RPI, turn off CONFIG_PLATFORM_I386_PC

# cd /usr/src/rtl8812au
# sudo make clean
# sudo make -j4
# sudo make install
# sudo modprobe -a rtl8812au

Compiling for Ubuntu (16.04) and Debian (9)

Download archive into temp directory

# mkdir -p /tmp/t4u
# cd /tmp/t4u
# wget


# unzip
# cd rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux-master

Install kernel headers

# sudo apt install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

Compile and install from source

# make
# sudo make install

Load module

# sudo modprobe -a rtl8812au

Cross-compiling. You can now specify variables on the command line w/out editing

makefile. For instance, this builds against recent OpenWRT neo2 platform. Your

Cross-compile binaries should be in your PATH.
