Realtek SDIO Wi-Fi driver

History

This repository originally contained a vendor driver provided by Realtek: rtl8723BS_WiFi_linux_v4.3.5.5_12290.20140916_BTCOEX20140507-4E40

It was then tidied up and had huge chunks of unused code removed by a number of contributors (see the git history for details), and eventually merged into the kernel staging tree in time for kernel 4.12-rc1.

Getting the code

This repository contains the history of the driver cleanup, which is not available in the upstream-merged driver. Compiling or running the driver on older kernels is not supported, please ask your distribution to provide updated kernel packages.

For support running the upstreamed staging driver, please refer to the NETWORKING [WIRELESS] section of MAINTAINERS file to find where to send requests.

To provide patches, see the driver TODO.

The various firmwares were added to the linux-firmware repository in February 2017
