Marvel 88W8997 Kernel Module build/install for 4.9.x + 4.14.x Raspberry Pi Kernel

Marvel 88W8997 Kernel Module driver for 4.9.x + 4.14.x Raspberry Pi kernel versions

Require script(s) to automate the building and installing of the mwifex_usb module + firmware to allow use of a Marvel 88W8997 WiFi and Bluetooth module.

Product in use is

This module is configured for USB Wifi and USB Bluetooth operational mode.

This module uses the standard inbuilt kernel drivers for 88W8997

This is the kernel module needed :

Ideally script should completely automate getting the respective kernel sources and building and installing the mwifiex modules required (along with installing the firmware)

The build steps need to be easily repeatable for any RPi OS variant.

Suggest using rpi-source to get kernel sources :

Resultant .ko kernel module(s) and firmware files need to be installed into correct locations,

Script should configure system for automatic module loading or at least these should be noted on what to do (e.g. depmod modprobe /etc/modules )

I'm expecting a script or scripts that are produced as part of this project would be be downloaded/installed and then run naively on a Raspberry Pi 3, as opposed to running on any third party system (e.g. cross compiling)

The WiFi module in question is for a custom Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 based board as background.

Addition 2 :

An example of what I need would be similar to how this out-of-tree module installation runs.


This requires little understanding from an end user perspective of how the steps "work" just that it generates the required modules/firmware and installs them.

Hi; Read the brief craefully. Compiling a kernel on a Raspberry Pi is a pain, so I can cross-compile it on x64 for ARM, if thats ok. I also realised you know your stuff well. I dealt with ko's quite a lot, Flere
