Build driver for wifi device MT7630E


  • OpenMandriva Lx version:

  • Desktop environment (KDE, LXQT…):
    Not relevant, but KDE

  • Description of the issue (screenshots if relevant):
    I try to compile the driver for my MT7630E wifi device.
    The compilation fails.

  • Relevant informations (hardware involved, software version, logs or output…):
    The page where I download the driver is this one:

I download, and install task-devel and kernel-release-desktop-devel

According to this, though it’s made for Debian world, compilation works on Fedora 27 so I guessed it should work with OMLx 4.

But it fails quickly:

[root@arrosoir MT7630E-release]# LC_ALL=C ./install                  
make -C /lib/modules/5.1.9-desktop-1omv4000/build M=/home/raphael/Téléchargements/MT7630E-release/rt2x00 modules
make[1]: Entering directory '/lib/modules/5.1.9-desktop-1omv4000/build'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'modules'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/lib/modules/5.1.9-desktop-1omv4000/build'
make: *** [Makefile:9: all] Error 2

Can someone please help me?

Probably this is in order: Issues · neurobin/MT7630E · GitHub

No commits since Jan 23 so it probably has not been updated for kernels that OM is using. Fedora 27 isn’t all that recent either. Currently this is not maintained at all. So you may need to bribe an OM dev to do something?

Post-edit: Removed something that turned out to be incorrect.

Post-edit-2: This will need help from a dev on IRC.

Do you think I need to open an issue in bugzilla?

Yes, we could stand to add some wifi drivers to our kernel packages. I have one myself I have to build.

Where should I open it, in rocking or cooker?

Rock. But ultimately, for this, it won’t matter, packages originate in Cooker and go downstream from there so it would reach all branches.
