    Question Strange DKMS issues

    I recently found an updated driver for my RTL8812AU wireless chipset that works in kernels >= 3.10 (I'm on 3.12.1). I want to set up DKMS, but I have some weird issues. No matter how I write the dkms.conf "MAKE[0]= ... " section, it doesn't compile and gives the error
    make: *** No rule to make target `all'.  Stop.
    However, it I enter in something like
    pwd && make
    ls && make
    it work perfectly. I looked at the make.log, and with the working commands, it seems to run the make command
    make ARCH=x86_64 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/3.12.1-031201-generic/build M=/var/lib/dkms/8812au/4.22/build  modules
    If I put that in the "MAKE[0]" section, once again I get the target error. Does anyone know what's happening and how I can make it work right? I partly want to know because I want to compile with 9 threads because it's a pretty large module and I have an 8 threaded processor and I also am really confused at why it doesn't work as I think it should. Here's the link to the driver on git if you need it:

    Re: Strange DKMS issues

    Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I was hitting the same issue.

    Try the rule
    MAKE="'make' KVER=${kernelver} KSRC=/lib/modules/${kernelver}/build"
    (borrowed from

    That seemed to work for me.
