|0004140||Kali Linux||[All Projects] Kali Package Bug||public||2017-08-11 14:12||2017-08-15 18:42|
|Status||closed||Resolution||no change required|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0004140: Installing realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms produce an error when installing|
|Description||Installing realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms produce an error when installing|
|Steps To Reproduce||Boot Raspberry Pi 3 with fresh kali Linux image.|
apt install realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms
|Additional Information||See attached file for screenshot of make.log|
The package has been tested with more recent kernels. Not sure that it's buildable against Linux 4.4 and not sure that this is something we ought to support either.
Maybe it's time to upgrade the kernel in the raspberry pi image.

The raspberry pi kernels (and all Kali ARM device kernels for that matter) are not packaged in Kali, but compiled separately as part of the image build process.
This means that packages and drivers built for the 32 and 64 bit Kali kernels will not work on any ARM devices.
If you want to compile your own drivers for an $ARM_device you will need to do so manually. We've kept a clean kernel source directory on each ARM device for this purpose specifically.
