RTL8192cu in imx6qp android 6.0.1 kernel 4.1.15

Hi all

Im trying to port RTL8192CU driver to imx6qp sabre board running on android 6.0.1 kernel 4.1.15.

Please advise the steps to be taken.

I am trying to compile the aosp and kernel with rtl8192cu as a module. I edited the imx_v7_android_defconfig file to include

CONFIG_WLAN=y

CONFIG_CFG80211=m

CONFIG_MAC80211_MESH=y
CONFIG_MAC80211=y

CONFIG_HOSTAP=y
CONFIG_RTL8192CU=m
CONFIG_RTLWIFI=y
CONFIG_RTL8192C_COMMON=y
CONFIG_USB_USBNET=y
CONFIG_NET_RADIO=y

But when I try to 'make imx_v7_android_defconfig', the defconfig file doesnt get copied to .config file.

CONFIG_RTL8192CU=m
CONFIG_RTLWIFI=y
CONFIG_RTL8192C_COMMON=y

are missing from the .config file. So the module doesnt get built with the 'make'.

Is there some other file I need to modify to build the module?

But I did make menuconfig and selected the required options and the module got compiled when I built the kernel separately. But again when I build the aosp with make, the kernel config again reverts back and starts building and gives this error.

If anyone tell me which all files are needed to be edited and how.

I referred posts about porting rt8192cu but its about previous versions of kernel and android. I tried following those only but Im failing to even compile everything. So can someone update the steps here. Thanks.

Hi Jaffin,

First you give make menuconfig . By using this set your WiFi chip as module(CONFIG_RTL8192CU=m). Then you save it. 

Now you copy .config into imx_v7_android_defconfig.

Now you can compile. Your WiFi chip build as module only.

Hope above information is helpful for you!

Hi

I have installed the driver module in the android system but how do you connect android to it. I have noticed wifi_realtek.c in some posts but I dont have that file in my source. Any idea what should be done?

Hi Jaffin,

Why you are making you wifi as module. Any valid reason is there??

IN build it straight away it will work.

Hi

I am making it as kernel builtin module. Thats all fine the driver is loaded it is attached to the device. But wifi still doesnt work. Not even from the kernel. I get this error

Hi Jaffin,

If you make it as in built, some service will start automatically.

Hi

Like I said I am building as builtin in the kernel. Also since this is not linux, services dont link to the driver directly. But through androids HAL layer. But I am missing the realtek specific HAL. Also I am having issue with the firmware loading of the device. Please tell me how you have done this if you have integrated realtek wifi.

Hi Jaffin,

I did for some other chip. 

Just now i checked in kernel. It is default chip. So we can fix it easily.

Can you share what are all the steps you did for wifi?

And also attach you latest bootlog(full log).

Thank you for the answer. I did it exactly like you said. I am able to build the kernel like this

$ make menuconfig

$ cp .config arch/arm/imx_v7_android_defconfig

$ make imx_v7_android_defconfig
$ make KCFLAGS=-mno-android

but when I try to build the aosp

$ lunch sabresd_6dq-user
$ make 2>&1 | tee build-log.txt

it gives me this error.

Target build info: out/target/product/sabresd_6dq/system/build.prop
make: *** No rule to make target `kernel_imx/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8188c_8192c_usb/8192cu.ko', needed by `out/target/product/sabresd_6dq/system/lib/modules/8192cu.ko'. Stop.

#### make failed to build some targets (03:42 (mm:ss)) ####

EDIT:

Sorry that was my bad. I messed up my sabresd_6dq.mk.
