Realtek RTL8821CE Driver maintained by Tomás Pinho for Arch Linux.
Still, can serve Slackers as well!


Although the driver builds for kernel 4.4.x as found in -14.2,
I only tested it in the field on kernel 5.4.x as found in -current.
Also, upstream warns that the source is targeting kernels > 4.14.

To build the package for a kernel different from the running one,
start the script setting the KERNEL variable as in:

KERNEL=4.4.14 ./rtl8821ce.SlackBuild


1. If you experience problems using this driver (e.g. a non-working
WiFi or Bluetooth), visit project's homepage to learn about possible
2. If you want to use this driver on -14.2, but with the kernel from
-current, you will need to compile the kernel yourself on -14.2.
Otherwise, you will run into compilation errors while building
the driver. I have no intent of fixing that, unless you provide me
with a working patch. ;-)
