I purchased  USB WiFi adapters that is supposed to work on Linux (Realtek 8192 cu ). I am using IMX6Q android 5.1.1 with version 3.14.52 of the kernel. I have enabled the rlt8192cu driver in the kernel, compiled it and installed it on my board. When I boot the board and plug in the usb dongle the system sees it and tries to install it. However it then says it tries to install "alternalte" firmware. This is what I am seeing:
