Hi to all,
i tried unsuccessful to compile a driver for a WLAN USB device on Igor's image 3.4.107-cubietruck #8 SMP PREEMPT Thu May 14 18:53:36 CEST 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux
after issuing the make command in the directory of the driver files I received the following output and
make ARCH=armv7l CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/3.4.107-cubietruck/build M=/home/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux-master modules
make: Entering directory '/usr/src/linux-headers-3.4.107-cubietruck'
Makefile:567: /usr/src/linux-headers-3.4.107-cubietruck/arch/armv7l/Makefile: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target '/usr/src/linux-headers-3.4.107-cubietruck/arch/armv7l/Makefile'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory '/usr/src/linux-headers-3.4.107-cubietruck'
Makefile:1040: recipe for target 'modules' failed
make: *** [modules] Error 2
What went wrong and how to fix it?
i checked by myself, the the directory armv7l does not exit at all!
Since this is the first time that i compile a driver, i appreciate your detailed instructions how to solve the issue!
In the meantime I investigated the issue further and would like to know how to compile the driver for the given ARM architecture ! But I still do not have a clue what went wrong!
Many thanks in Advance!
and it will work.
thanks for your help!
It worked fine!
Still enjoy your vacation!
After compiling the driver I want to install and get the hardware (ALFA AUWS036AC) to run.
Sofar I have not been succesfull with it.

Try with realtek hostapd - they are present on my image:

Hi to All!
Currently i am using 3.4.107-cubietruck #14 SMP PREEMPT Wed Apr 29 11:57:42 CEST 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux including a WLAN USB Adapter AWUS036AC from ALFA.
First question: Does anybody got this adapter to work with a cubietruck as a WLAN-AP?
Second question: If yes, what driver did you use for the successful implementation?
I want to use it as a 5GHZ (AC-standard) WLAN-AP!
Many thanks in advance.
