Prepare source code

Download source code package

Download rtl8188EUS_linux_v4.3.0.9_15178.20150907.tar.xz from the network disk.

Decompress source code package

Create working directory

Here we create ~/my-demo/exclude_src directory,and work under the directory.
$ mkdir ~/my-demo/exclude_src -p

Copy source code package to working directory

Copy source code package downloaded to ~/my-demo/exclude_src .
Next step should be done in your own way.

Decompress source code package

  • Enter source code directory.

$ cd ~/my-demo/exclude_src

  • Decompress

$ tar xf rtl8188EUS_linux_v4.3.0.9_15178.20150907.tar.xz

Compilation module

Check configuration

Instruction:module compilation exist with two dependent relationships,cross compilation link and kernel,which need to be in the path designated.

  • Validate configured file of compilation.

$ source ~/my-sama5/03_tools/gcc-linaro-4.9-2014.11-x86_64_arm-linux-gnueabihf.config
Myimx6linux3.14 build

  • Check path of source code in kernel.

$ ls ~/my-sama5/02_source/linux-at91-linux4sam_4.7
If there is kernel source code and in correct path then content of kernel source code directory can be found.
If result of execution of command is anormal,need to re-compife kernel with reference to《MY-SAMA5 L318 compilation manual》.


  • Enter driving code directory.

$ cd rtl8188EUS_linux_v4.3.0.9_15178.20150907/

  • Execute compilation command

$ make

Target file

  • Check target file information

$ file *.ko
Execute file command to see module information compiled,example.
8188eu.ko: ELF 32-bit LSB relocatable, ARM, version 1 (SYSV), BuildID[sha1]=0x1a3bbb865d785effc8acfebf9e2c8faf066b3fbf, not stripped
8188eu.ko is the target file compiled
