I need to compile the rtl8821 driver (the preinstalled is not working - no search results in wireless menu) so I need the headers for atv osmc, how can I install them?
This driver is included in OSMC. It is possible we don’t have your VID/PID combo covered in the driver yet, and you would be better off providing it so we can include it in OSMC.
Nonetheless, apt-get update && apt-cache search atv-headers should provide you with a list of header packages.
Ok, the lspci -nn says:
Network controller : Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8821AE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter [10ec:8821]
Can you chek is it already included or not, please?
Ah, PCI-E, that makes more sense…
It’s probably not included
So need I just wait for update or something?
Not for a while, as the driver is unified across all platforms. I don’t have plans to add PCI-E support until we separate out for x64.
You will be better off building manually for now and pinning the kernel
Ok, when I run apt-cache search atv-headers there is nothing in output
atv-headers-4.2.3-6-osmc - Header files related to Linux kernel, specifically,
Make sure you run apt-get update first.
yes, double check it, update first then search - still nothing
alsto trying sudo apt-get install atv-headers-4.2.3-6-osmc:
E: Unable to locate package atv-headers-4.2.3-6-osmc
E: Couldn’t find any package by regex ‘atv-headers-4.2.3-6-osmc’
