    USB Wifi Adapter AC1200 EW7822UAC (chipset rtl8812au)


    I was following tutorial from edimax on how to install this adapter on linux but it does not work for me.

    1. problem was "Package 'linux-headers-generic' has no installation candidate", I ignored it and go forward.
    2. problem was missing dkms, I installed it somehow.
    3. now, after changed platform versin in Makefile to ARM_RPI I get following error
    DKMS make.log for rtl8812AU-4.3.22-beta for kernel 4.4.50+ (armv6l)

    I'm running on RPi 1 with kali 2017.2.
    I tryed using all versions from this git repo (4.3.8, 4.3.14, 4.3.20, 4.3.22-beta), always with same error.

    Is it possible to install in this configuration?

    Which git repo are you talking about? There are about 10 of them.

    Have you tried ?
