Customised (encrypted) eMMC installation using Anarsoul's ArchLinux
Bumping an ancient thread yet again with a minor update just in case it might benefit somebody. Since the mainline Arch-ARM kernel incremented to the 5.11.x kernel series, the latest rtl8723cs DKMS module from the Manjaro repos no longer builds properly against the kernel (which means no wifi). It still builds just fine against the last 5.10.x kernel, so for the time being I've just reverted to that.

The odd thing is that the Manjaro Pinebook image uses the 5.11.x series kernel, and wifi works out of the box. I assumed there must be some patches in the Manjaro kernel to enable the Realtek module, but if you run
dkms autoinstall
dkms install -m rtl8723cs -v 2020.06.27
from the Manjaro image, it produces the exact same build error as my Arch install, even though the module is loaded and running. If time permits and I'm able to find a solution I'll post back, or if anyone else knows what I'm doing wrong, please let me know.
