Fedora :: How To Install RealTek Wireless Drivers

Jan 6, 2011

is how I added the RealTek 8188CE (or other RealTek drivers) to my newly installed Fedora 14 on a Toshiba Satellite L645D-S4056 laptop. This is assuming you have performed a regular install of Fedora 14 and have done nothing else.

1. Download the drivers at the RealTek download page here:URL...Search for your model in the "Download Search" box and selecting the Linux version of the software. In my case I typed in 8188CE and selected RTL8188CE (Software).

2.Extract the downloaded file into the desired location, open a terminal window, and navigate to the folder where you extracted the drivers.

3.Enable Sudo using the following command:su -echo "username ALL=(ALL) ALL" >> /etc/sudoers.Where "username" is your account username.

4.While still logged on as root, type in the following to install gcc and the kernel headers:yum install gcc kernel-devel kernel-headers patch make exit(From this point you really only have to follow the readme.txt instructions in the drivers folder, but I'll add them here)

5.Change to Super User sudo su

6. Compile driver from the source code make

7. Install the driver to the kernel make install reboot

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Make Fails For New Realtek Drivers (D-Link DWA-131)

May 6, 2010

I am trying desperately to get my wireless n adapter to work. I had it running sporadically with ndiswrapper for some months now (it was always unreliable). Now I was very optimistic, when I found new driver sources from Realtek directly: Realtek I understand the DWA-131 is based on the Realtek 8192su chipset. Unfortunately the build fails:

Fedora :: Install A Realtek Wireless Driver?

May 18, 2011

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?

Ubuntu Networking :: Loading Native Drivers For Realtek Wireless Adapter?

Feb 12, 2011

Just made the jump to Ubuntu, and until this install I considered myself very tech savvy. Now not so much! Built my new desktop, loaded Ubuntu 64 bit no problem. But I'm having a terrible time figuring out how to load the native driver for my realtek wireless adapter. I successfully un-tarred the file, and used the terminal to run the make command by using cd command to navigate to the file. It returned a wall of text, and in my mind looked to work. Next I go to run "./clean" in the same file location in the terminal and it returns:

"ERROR: Module r8192s_usb does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_rsl does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_ccmp does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_tkip does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_wep does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt does not exist in /proc/modules

Not completely sure if this is an issue, I try moving to the next step of instructions issuing the command "insmod 8712u.ko" in the terminal same file location and get the error message
insmod: error inserting '8712u.ko': -1 Operation not permitted
I've tried running "sudo insmod 8712u.ko" from both that file directory, and from my home file directory. My guess is I'm missing a step or need to be typing these commands in a different file directory in the terminal.

Fedora :: Need GCC To Install Wireless Drivers In F14?

Mar 7, 2011

I'm using Fedora 14 (standard Gnome desktop) on a x86_64, GCC is not pre-installed. It's from a physical DVD installation, not a live installation. As I need GCC to install my wireless drivers, I have no internet access right now and can't use

Code:
# yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
or
#yum install gcc gcc-c++
or any other yum commands.

My next course of action was to try to call GCC by name, but when searching for it in the terminal, all I get is:
Code:
bash: find/: No such file or directory
Although the Add/Remove Software utility recognizes that I have GCC and all other standard compilers (but does not install them for some reason). So I think, okay, no problem, I'll just download the .rpm and other dependencies from a different computer and add them to my machine with a flash drive since I can't find them within my own OS.

I got gcc-4.5-1-4.fc14.x86_64.rpm, then these additional files as outlined in the error message:
Code:
error: Failed dependencies:
binutils >= 2.20.51.0.2-12
cloog-ppl >= 0.15
cpp = 4.5.1-4.fc14
gliibc-devel >= 2.2.90-12
libmpc.so.2 ()(64bit)

I get as far as installing the cloog binaries before I start getting long lists of failed dependencies, like so:
Code:
# rpm -Uvh cloog-ppl-0.15.7-2.fc14.x86_64.rpm
warning: cloog-ppl-0.15.7.2.fc14.x86_64.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 97a1071f: NOKEY
error: Failed dependencies:
libppl.so.7 ()(64bit) is needed by cloog-ppl-0.15.7-2.fc14.x86_64.rpm
libppl_c.so.2 ()(64bit) is needed by cloog-ppl-0.15.7-2.fc14.x86_64.rpm

I go on adding missing dependencies, the next one being libppl.so.7, but
Code:
error: Failed dependencies:
libc.so.6 is needed by libmpc2-32bit-0.8.2-9.1.x86_64
libc.so.6 (GLIBC_2.0) is needed by libmpc2-32bit-0.8.2-9.1.x86_64

libc.so.6 (GLIBC_2.2) is needed by libmpc2-32bit-0.8.2-9.1.x86_64
libc.so.6 (GLIBC_2.3) is needed by libmpc2-32bit-0.8.2-9.1.x86_64
libc.so.6 (GLIB_2.3.4) is needed by libmpc2-32bit-0.8.2-9.1.x86_64
libgmp.so.10 is needed by libmpc2-32bit-0.8.2-9.1.x86_64
libmpfr.so.4 is needed by libmpc2-32bit-0.8.2-9.1.x86_64

I feel like I'm in an infinite loop of failed dependencies. Basically what I want to know, is there a much easier way of doing this that I'm missing? Or should I just tough it out and rpm -Uvh all these lib binaries?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Unable To Install PCI Wireless Card Drivers In CentOS

Feb 15, 2011

installing the PCI wireless card drivers in CentOS linux. I have "Sabrent PCI-G802 PCI Wireless Card - 54Mbps, 802.11g". I tried looking in google and tried multiple ways to install the driver but failed , I have followed the instructions given in the link i.e.
performed the following steps .....

1.# tar xvzf package.tar.gz (or tar xvjf package.tar.bz2)
2.# cd package
3.# ./configure
4.# make
5.# make install

I have the original cd (this cd has linux drivers also) which came with the PCI card but its not a plug and play cd like the MS windows, the cd drive is not reading the disk (But i can open it in windows 7). I copied the installation files from the cd to usb drive on my windows 7 PC and copied them on to the CentOS /home/user directory and performed the above mentioned steps. I was successful in getting till the second step. when i did the step 3 the system is asking some thing about

"Linux kernel source directory [/usr/src/2.6.18-92.el5PAE-i386]: Configure"

I just pressed the enter button and it went to the next message which is

"Linux source tree 'Configure' is incomplete or missing!" Configuration failed

Ubuntu Networking :: Install A Realtek USB Wireless On A RT Kernel?

I was able to successfully install the drivers on the generic kernel, but I seem to be having a problem getting it done on the real time kernel I downloaded via the Ubuntu Software Center. Here's what shows up when I type in 'make' at the command line:

Fedora :: How To Get Realtek USB Wireless Working

Oct 22, 2010

Supported chipsets:
8188
8191

Terry Polzin on the Fedora list today posted a request for help with getting a Realtek 8188S(U) working. I replied saying that I had a similar device and shared my experiences.

I told him that there is a driver in staging which supports the device, but that Fedora only ships quality working drivers by default, so no staging drivers are included. It's easy enough to get them though, just add the RPMFusion Free repository and install their kmod-staging package which (as the name might give away) includes the staging drivers for the current kernel.

Once you have that installed, the r8192s_usb module can be loaded, but the device still needs external (presumably proprietary) firmware to work. Fortunately, although the driver available from Realtek does not include it, it was included on the disk, and is also available in the Billion driver from their website. So, once you have put the firmware in the right place, the device just works.

Here are the steps to get it working (you will need to have RPMFusion enabled, and run these as root).

Code:
yum install kmod-staging unzip
depmod -a
wget http://au.billion.com/downloads/3011N/3011N_Linux_Driver.zip
unzip -j 3011N_Linux_Driver.zip "*rtl8192sfw.bin" -d RTL8192SU

[Code].....

The main downside here (apart from the obvious) is that you will be relying on RPMFusion to build an updated kmod-staging version when you get a Fedora kernel update. Sometimes this might not happen before you get your kernel, so when you reboot, you lose your wireless (because there's no driver). If so, boot to your older kernel for a while, or build the driver yourself, or create an akmod instead of kmod.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Realtek Wireless - Refuses To Show Itself Under FC13

I am having problems with with a Satellite Pro L500 and FC13. The laptop has a Realtek RTL8192SE wireless adapter, which runs under Win 7 that it came with, but refuses to show itself under FC13.

When I run lshw it shows me:

I looked on the web and this forum for clues and someone suggested installing kmod-ndiswrapper. So I installed the yum rpm-fusion repository and an ndiswrapper for my kernel ------ and nothing's changed.

When I do an lsmod I get:

I've been a Fedora Core bunny since FC3 but I've only recently discovered the wonders of wireless networking and this one has me stumped. I don't fancy being reduced to Windoze when I work from home!

Ubuntu Networking :: Set Installed Realtek Drivers Permanently?

Sep 1, 2011

I've had some hiccups with my the wired connections on my new ASUS M5A88-M motherboard, ethernet card is a Realtek 8111E. The default drivers keep giving me an unstable connection - keeps starting and stopping. I figure it must be the drivers since the connection is fine when I boot to the windoze os. I went here and downloaded the "LINUX driver for kernel 2.6.x and 2.4.x (Support x86 and x64)" file. Untarred and ran the .sh. Checked speedtest.net and the result was almost a mirror, if not better, than when I did speedtest on the windoze os. I read this thread here which gave me some insight. The .sh appears to have replaced a r8169 driver with the one I downloaded, r8168. But when I restart, it reverts to the r8169 driver.

Also an easy way to install nvidia drivers?
