SM on Raspberry Pi 4 using different kernel #42889
Troubleshooting my Stellarmate OS on Pi4 issues with drivers has made me somewhat of a Linux blue belt and I want to know if I can save time by installing everything I need to get StellarMate to work [through the Android App] is possible on a different kernel. My biggest issue now is that my WiFi adapter just isn't working with any of the rtl88x2BU drivers. So I am at the point where I want to try building my own StellarMate on a different kernel...maybe KDE. Although I know Raspian is very stable [naturally]. Is this possible? How would I go about doing it?

Have you tried this rtl882xbu Wi-FI Installation? These instructions are for an Odroid-N2.
For the USB wi-fi adapter I chose (listed below) and as described in ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2394372&page=3
export ARCH=arm64
sudo apt update
sudo apt install -y git
git clone https://github.com/EntropicEffect/rtl8822bu.git
cd rtl8822bu
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe 88x2bu
Note that when Update Manager offers a newer kernel version you must recompile after the requested reboot:
cd rtl8822bu
make clean
git pull
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe 88x2bu

User Rlancaste included a script for installing the RTL8822BU driver among his system setup script you may want to try.

Specifically: install_driverRTL8822BU.sh

I will include this driver in the next beta for SM OS on RPi4 plus a newer kernel/firmware. Should be out in a few days.

Hi Jasem, will these need to be re flashed to SD card, or updated through the GUI updater..?
I guess with new firmware we are looking at a re flash..

The RPi4 update would be a reflash it's new kernel/firmware/drivers..etc. It would be still be beta until we get proper upstream support.

Awesome Jasem! It would be great if you included all the Realtek drivers -- 8812/8814/88xx. I have an ALFA 1900 I bought to get directional wifi at the end of september star party [Heart of America Star Party] and won't be bringing my SMos Pi4 if I can't get it working in Infrastructure Mode. I've been working hard to ensure it works, along with my Ultimate Powerbox v2.

Do you have an ETA on the new image, or better yet, an ETA on a 'stable' release? I just re-flashed for the 6th time playing with both the Pi4 and SM-OS and would like some stability ; )

I believe tomorrow (or maximum by Monday) is when the new image is ready. Why do you need to reflash? The image works fine currently as far as I know.

Yes it works just fine, but I would want the new drivers, I was referring to you comment above saying the next RPi beta update requires a reflash...
