This is New Installation - KALI 2020 5.90-kali1. I am trying to compile a driver and install. What I have done.
- Installation completed. Went to get updated driver as KALI support modified under 2020.4
- Tried a make command and it failed.
- Ran sudo apt update Great amount of files listed.
- Ran sudo apt full-upgrade to upgrade files to see if this corrected. It did not.
- Because of previous upgrade, I am now at 5.9.0-kali5, per uname -r
- Ran make again and same issue.
- Updated linux headers sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
- After completion of above make will run
- I still receive the following error on make install. I believe this to be from NOT being root or another permission that was missed at install.

install -p -m 644 88XXau.ko /lib/modules/5.9.0-kali5-amd64/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
install: cannot create regular file '/lib/modules/5.9.0-kali5-amd64/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/88XXau.ko': Permission denied
make: *** [Makefile:2261: install] Error 1

- However, I am under impression ROOT no longer exist in Kali since 2020.x per here

For years now, Kali has inherited the default root user policy from BackTrack. As part of our evaluation of Kali tools and policies we have decided to change this and move Kali to a ?traditional default non-root user? model. This change will be part of the 2020.1 release, currently scheduled for late January. However, you will notice this change in the weekly images starting now.

What am I missing here? Thoughts?
