Re: RTL88x2BU v5.2.4.1 22719 Mint 19

Follow my instructions from my last post and I said to use

Code: Select all

PACKAGE_VERSION=4.3
And that is different than

Code: Select all

PACKAGE_VERSION="4.3"
And then do

Code: Select all

cd ~
sudo dkms add rtl88x2bu
sudo dkms install rtl88x2bu/4.3
It should work that way as the original instructions stink in my opinion

Wifi extenders might be legal, they plug into an electrical outlet but do need some info entered for them to work

The USB sticks are just to try or install Linux Mint, most are not persistent and will not save changes
