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 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?
I am currently running openSUSE 11.4 on my Toshiba A505 laptop. I'm not certain about the exact model number of the wireless adapter but I believe it's made by Realtek. It does not show up in my list of network connections in YaST so I assume I'll need a driver for it.
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
I'm having trouble with my Samsung Netbook N220 and its Realtek 8192 wireless card and could use some help with diagnostics. I would like to use the netbook as a server and after a day or so the system stops responding. What I'd like to know:
- What do the "========>ieee80211_parse_info_param(): athros AP is exist" spam messages actually say? Does anyone else have this and stability problems?
- Why is the realtek driver package not working?
I'm running Ubuntu Netbook 10.04/Kernel 2.6.32-24-generic. Initially the card was unable to connect, so I installed the Realtek driver rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0017.0507.2010 which adds a kernel module r8192se_pci.ko. At first my system was hanging during bootup. I then restored /lib/modules/2.6.32-24-generic and now the card is connecting but the system is unstable. The 2.6.32-23-generic kernel, modules listed below, still has modules as installed by the realtek driver and is not working. Below the drivers supplied by ubuntu
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?
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'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 184.108.40.206 ("kernel_src-220.127.116.11-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).
When I run the makefile I get /lib/modules/2.6.35-22-generic/build: No such file or directory. Stop. Linux error 2 The previous drivers which I downloaded and installed under 10.04 also display the same error.
I recently installed realtek sound driver software in my system, but after installing it,the speakers are not working.... I'm using fedora 13(x86_64). i just want to make my system speak,like before.... how to make my speakers work ?
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:
/driver/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 625$ make make ARCH=i386 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/2.6.31-11-rt/build M=/home/marcoharder/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 625/driver/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 625 modules
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).
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.
I'm using Fedora 14 GNOME. At least until tomorrow when 15 beta comes out Anyway, I'm trying to install drivers for my wireless card. It's a Realtek Semiconductor, RTL8191SEvB. I'm using RTL8192 drivers, which work just fine when I can get them to install. I have all of the necessary files to install it, and they've worked before on a previous Fedora 14 (KDE) install. I cd into the drive and run "sudo make" which gives me the following:
I have been given an Edimax EW7318USG wireless adaptor,no drivers.I download 2008_0506 _RT73_Linux_STA_Drv18.104.22.168.tar.zip from [URL]..onto my Linux computer using an adaptor from another computer.but cannot find out what to do next:. I have just installed Fedora 11 from a Linux Format magazine DVD.
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!
I have just downloaded realtek rtl98192se for my wireless pci card. after extracting the file, the user guide states to go to the top level of the directory and execute the command 'make' to compile the driver
I have done so but I get the error: make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.18-194.el5/build: No such file or directory. Stop. Make: *** [all] Error 2
I have a laptop and a Broadcom 4322AG Wireless adapter in it. I am using Fedora 11 64 bit Live. instructions to install and configure my internet connection in Linux. I dont know how to install drivers in linux though I have Got a 64 bit driver from Broadcom Website. In windows, my internet connection doesnt need any password to access. It get connected to internet when I turn on wireless.
