I have a generic box which has the MT76x8 wifi/bt module. I see that Github page for coreelec has the wifi driver for MT76x8. But, how do I compile this into the kernel available on GH page, or for that matter with any other Linux kernel?
Is it even possible to do that? Or, is there another way to compile the driver into the kernel?
Sorry if it’s an extremely beginner question, but, any help is greatly appreciated.
That’d be great. But, I was wondering if there’s a way to build the driver into kernel so that it can be used for other distros too. I know, it’s not the smartest thing to be discussing other distros on Coreelec forums. But, you guys came the closest to building the WiFi driver for Linux. As you know, the driver does exist for Android, thanks to Fire Stick TV.
I tried with the source available on GitHub (GitHub - CoreELEC/mt76x8). Tried adding it to the Linux kernel source, made changes to Kconfig and Makefile. Unfortunately, Linux kernel building completely ignored the folder. I confirmed this by deleting the mt76x8 folder. The kernel still built successfully. Am I missing something? Will I have to port these drivers to Linux?
Yah, but many members on the wifi/bt issue thread claimed that wifi did work for them. So, I was interested. Moreover, since there is already the Android driver, I wanted to know if there was a way to port it for Linux. Thanks for all the answers. I really appreciate it.
