OS is Xbian which is also based on debian. Wouldn't that work?
I don't know if it will.

I compile the drivers using the source provided by RPF and the last kernel source for raspbian is 4.9.80 so I cannot compile the driver for 4.9.95 anyway.

I had a look on the Xbian forum and found a post that suggested the 8812au driver was added to Xbian a couple of years ago. I am downloading Xbian at the moment and will have a look at it.
Thank you!
I was trying this, because I keep having problems with LibreELEC on my Raspberry Pi. Driver support for this drivers seems to be very difficult. I find that very strange, because a lot of dongles are based on these drivers.

Hi,

I've taken a look at Xbian and the images do include the 8812au driver and couple of other out of tree drivers, 8192eu and mt7610u_sta.

It is possible they are not properly registered so I would suggest you try the following command in a terminal window

Code: Select all

sudo depmod -a
and then reboot and see what happens.

I can't try myself as I do not have a display, keyboard and mouse to set up Xbian. I connect to my PI using putty and SSH from my W7 laptop.

I will do that. I have to see when I have the time to do so. I think it will be tomorrow...

I had some time left....

I see it is using the driver. But I can't seem to connect to my network. I did disable the onboard wifi to test this. But can't get it to connect.
