Building 8852be Driver


I bought an AMD Ryzen 7 5825U 8 core laptop. The wifi chip is an RTL8852 chip. Linux does not yet have a driver for it in any distributions. So, here is how to build it from source code.

First you add the repository.


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kelebek333/kablosuzsudo add-apt-repository ppa:kelebek333/kablosuz
sudo apt update
git clone https://github.com/HRex39/rtl8852be.git
clone https://github.com/HRex39/rtl8852be.git
cd rtl8852be
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe 8852be

Now when you reboot and go into control panel and look at adding a wifi device you will see the new device present. Mine shows up as a device named wl0.
