Debian Installation :: How To Force Load Realtek-firmware Driver During Install
Dec 25, 2015
Now, my issue is that I have no access to ethernet in my apartment so I need to rely on wifi for my install. But during the install when it is looking for the network hardware it never sees the TP-Link Dongle and never asks if I wan to load the firmware. I even tried it with the CD image that has the non-free drivers included but it never asks for the drivers. Any other distro, like Linux Mint 7.3, sees the dongle fine.
So is there a way to force load the realtek-firmware drivers during install?
I performed an update that has caused issues with my wireless. Errors relating to wireless firmware missing and consequently no internet connection.
I've been through this before with my 2008 macbook air BCM card whose firmware isn't included in installs. In the past I've manually installed the b43-fwcutter package an extracted some firmware... That doesn't seem to be working here.
I've used [URL]i ... cefirmware to troubleshoot. I have not been able to get b43 or wl to work.
I attempted to install the "firmware-b43-installer_015-14.1_all.deb" package; however it depends on wget to download and install "broadcom-wl-5.100.138.tar.bz2" from wlfinger.com.
So I manually installed b43-fwcutter and used it to extract the broadcom-wl-5 file referenced....
modprobe wl says wl doesn't exist and modprobe b43 doesn't seem to work.
Code: Select allsudo dpkg -i broadcom-sta-dkms_184.108.40.206-8_all.deb Setting up broadcom-sta-dkms (220.127.116.11-8) ... Loading new broadcom-sta-18.104.22.168 DKMS files... Building only for 3.2.0-4-amd64 Module build for the currently running kernel was skipped since the kernel source for this kernel does not seem to be installed.
I tried something from broadcom that produced make errors "/lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/build: No such file or directory"... I think this means I need some kernel development packages, broadcom says:
Code: Select allOn Fedora install 'kernel-devel' (Development Package for building kernel modules to match the kernel) from the Package Manager (System-> Administration-> Add/Remove Software).
On Ubuntu, you will need headers and tools. Try these commands: # apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic # apt-get build-dep linux
I'm having trouble install this stuff without the net and not sure installing generic headers and build-dep outside of apt-get is the way to go... linux-headers-3.2.0-4-amd64_3.2.57-3+deb7u2_amd64.deb has alot of dependencies that would take me a while to find and download.
I installed linux-image-4.1.0-trunk, when I boot into the kernel there's no wireless available. Dmesg indicates seems like the firmware is loaded, although firmware-iwlwifi is installed: ... [ 11.047031] iwlwifi 0000:04:00.0: firmware: failed to load iwlwifi-7265D-13.ucode (-2) [ 11.047039] iwlwifi 0000:04:00.0: Direct firmware load for iwlwifi-7265D-13.ucode failed with error -2
Now it is fine when browsing the web, but whenever I download a large file/game from Steam it becomes unresponsive and stops working.I have noticed it happens whenever the download is maxed..which at the moment is at around 5.4mbps on steam.Never get a warning...just internet stops working...no pages can be displayed...The connection never disconnects.I can only get it working again when I unplug it and re insert it back in again.
Things I have tried: - Returning it to the shop and getting a new one (didn't fix it).
Code: Select allzerocool@hal9000:~$ uname -a Linux hal9000 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt4-3 (2015-02-03) x86_64 GNU/Linux
So I bought a new wireless pci-e adapter today that has a realtek 8192CE chipset. I checked before I bought it and it is supported in the kernel since 2.6.38. Just to be safe I used the kernel-huge-2.6.39-rc4 config file from testing just to get it to work. All the kernel modules are loaded correctly and it is recognized by iwconfig, however wicd acts as if there is no wireless card in the system. I checked dmesg and saw this error. rtl8192cu:loading firmware file rtlwifi/rtl8192cfw.bin rtl8192cu:firmware loading failed
So I googled around and didn't find much except for somethings about needing firmware. I did make firmware_install but for some reason there is no rtlwifi/rtl8192cfw.bin file. As a test I found an RPM that had the bin file I needed. I converted it to a tgz and ran explodepkg on it to extract the one file I needed. I made a directory /lib/firmware/rtlwifi and dropped the .bin file in and wicd immediately found my networks. So I guess it is a missing firmware issue, however I am currently not able to obtain and ip address. Why did the kernel not build the firmware I need, or is that something I have to download and build separately?
I hope I'm posting in the right forum here, but I'm trying to install a realtek wireless driver and make goes okay, but when I get to make install it says permission denied when trying to create a file in a folder near the end of the process. Is there anyway to fix this? What can I do?
I have made a set of ISO CDs for Fedora 11. I put in the first one (disc1 not the Live CS) and boot the system. This is fine. I choose "Install or upgrade an existing system". It is a fresh system not an upgrade. The installation proceeds - but it starts to download everything from the network, not from the CDs. How do I prevent this and force it to load from the CDs?
after installing Ubuntu Natty Narwhal 11.04, I'm experiencing tons and tons of complications with the wireless Internet connection. I have solved most of them. Now I have only one thing left. When I hit the drop-down menu for wireless connections, it says "Wireless connection (Firmware missing)"
I have installed the driver for my wireless card but what is the firmware? I honestly don't know what it is although it's very basic. I have a Broadcom 43xx as my wireless card (specifically 4306). How do I get the firmware for it? Do I find it in Windows? Also I cannot get b43-fwcutter because I have absolutely to Internet connection on Ubuntu. To post this, I'm using Windows.
i use fedora11 and try to use wireless i find driver for chip Realtek RTL8187 but want to know command to install it. i save folder of driver on desktop in folder name rtl8187_linux_26.1010.0622.2006has like this
I just installed FC14 on an ASUS Eee Pc with Realtek WNIC (RTL8191SE) and I am trying to install the driver for the WNIC which I downloaded from Realtek's website. There is a problem though during the 'make' command and this is the output
what is this 'build' that is looking for? what can I do to fix this?
There seems to be some trouble with 8139too not working in a previous post. Has anyone found a solution to this? ubuntu version 2.6.24 (Hardy Heron?). Followed all known possibilities but information is all mostly out of date. module 8139too.ok? does not load. Following makefile on 8139too.c supplied, after altering to suit my version, comes up with 3 pages of errors?. ifconfig shows nothing for eth0like the last person markjuggles i have hit a brick wall here. Am I wasting my time?
I just installed Maverick 64-bit on my new Satellite AMD 4-core laptop. I've run into an issue with the fact that Brother does not have a 64-bit driver for my Multi-Function Laser printer. They recommend force installing the 32-bit driver. I have made sure that all the 32-bit library and all the folders exist per Brothers instructions. However, I'm confused on what command I need to type in the terminal window to actually do the install. Can someone recommend the proper command to force install the 32-bit driver? Or should I download the source code and compile? I don't know the proper method for compiling a 64-bit driver either.
Is this card supported in Squeeze by either the non-free firmware or the proprietary driver? I just got one to stick into an older box that will be going to a college girl that wants the 3D desktop in KDE. The built-in video was a joke and wouldn't even work without compositing. It was one of those crappy, non-standard pieces of crap known as a "Unichrome" (not the pro).
I've got a Puppy system running version 4.3.0 that I'm trying to get on the home network. I'm using a D-Link DWA-130 (H/W revision C), which has a Realtek RTL8192U chipset. I got the drivers off of D-Link's website, and they compiled and installed just fine, but when either a) I try to connect to the network, or b) while I'm browsing the web, the system locks up completely. No mouse, no keyboard, no Ctrl-Alt-Bksp to get out of X, nothing.
I'll outline my steps: Install Puppy using a "Full" HDD install (not "Frugal"). Copy the "devx_430.sfs" file (which I got from the Puppy website) from a thumb drive to the "my-documents" folder (although the exact location proabably doesn't matter). Mount it, cd to the mounted directory and execute "cp -a --remove-destination ./* /" and "sync". Copy the kernel source for 22.214.171.124 ("kernel_src-126.96.36.199-patched.sfs4.sfs") to the same directory. Mount it and execute the same commands as before. Copy the folder containing the RTL8192U drivers ("rtl8192u_linux_2.6.0006.1031.2008") to the root directory (i.e. "/"). cd to the folder in the terminal and run "make", "make install".Reboot the machine. Set up networking using the Puppy Internet Connection Wizard. HERE'S WHERE IT SCREWS UP: It connects, but after a while (e.g. just after logging into LQ through it, as a test) it freezes the entire system.
I have to do a hard reboot ("panic button"), then a soft reboot (for some odd reason the usb module won't load after a hard reboot, so the mouse won't work) to get the system working again, only to have it lock up again once it connects to the network.
Are these drivers broken? Outdated? Is there anything I can do to fix this? EDIT: I should add that this only occurs when the adapter is plugged in. If I boot the system with it unplugged, it works fine (probably because it never loads the kernel module).
I'm new to Fedora and just installed the latest version on my Compaq Presario CQ56. Everything except for the WirelessLan seems to be working. The driver is missing, which I've already downloaded and when trying to run the "make" command it tries to cd into the following directory:/lib/modules/188.8.131.52-45.fc14.i686/build
whereas the build folder is actually a dangling symlink which it for some reason can't access. Is there anything I can do to solve this issue?
I installed openSuSe 11.4 on a Lenovo W500 and noticed this error message upon bootup. The desktop login doesn't make it to the screen. I went into fail-safe mode as root. I know the issue is attributed to the R600_rlc.bin located in /lib/firmware/R600_rlc.bin. I attempt to make some config changes but the file is in binary. It could be a problem associated with the creation of the initrd but not certain. It's a dual-boot system running Windows 7 on the other partition
I'm having an issue with the installation. I've downloaded the live ISO and put it on my USB. Everything appeared fine except for the wireless because it requires non-free firmware. The installation tells me that I can insert a USB device with the firmware on it, so I ran to a different computer to download it off the manufacturer's website and put it on the root of another USB.
However, when the installation tries to detect the firmware on the USB, it fails.
The installation is claiming to look for rt2561.bin. I have placed this in the root of the USB as well as the .zip file it came in and a .bz2 file for manual installation of the firmware. Unfortunately, I cannot install the firmware manually either because the system is missing various commands (make, etc.). I am assuming these would be installed automatically with an internet connection.
I have an Airlink101 AWLL3026 and the zd1211rw driver. When I insert the USB card, it is recognized but syslog indicates that the firmware wasn't where is was expected.I am running an updated Linux Mint system (based off of Ubuntu): Linux hoverfly 2.6.28-11-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 17 01:57:59 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux Plugging in the USB Wifi adapter results in the following on syslog:
Jan 31 19:04:08 hoverfly kernel: [105617.584051] usb 1-7: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 9 Jan 31 19:04:08 hoverfly kernel: [105617.740521] usb 1-7: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
But idea is that this PC will work without operator so driver must be loaded automatically. As i realized the solution is to make script but when i try google it shows me how and where to put this script but not how to make it. Also i've tried to put tmk1553b.ko to /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/kernel/drivers/misc but it doesn't work.
