    RTL8192E and the Testing version of Lucid

    Well - In the vain hope that my wireless card would work in Lucid (Kernel 2.26.32.11??) I booted from the live cd

    lspci shows that the card is present and occupying a resource but still no dice

    dmesg shows the following.

    Code:

    You need to find the firmware file for the card. This may be of help to you.

    I think that may be in the file that Realtek sent me..

    Would it just be the boot.img file in the firmware folder?

    They say it's "requested as boot.img" in the thread referred to (post #10)...
    Good luck getting it working, it seems that others were having plenty of trouble.

    Re: RTL8192E and the Testing version of Lucid

    Hi
    I have the same card and i am using this driver
    http://launchpadlibrarian.net/382012...15.2010.tar.gz
    just compile it while you are root like that
    sudo su
    make ;make install
    to know more about the driver have a look at this launchpad bug
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...6?comments=all

    i hope that the driver will be included in Lucid by default to have a better support.

    Hmm - those links seem to refer to the 8192SE. Bitter experience has told me that these cards are totally different and the SE drivers do not work with the E

    Does anybody reccon that with the final version of Lucid; the firmware will be included?

    What kernel do you use - i386 or amd64?

    i386.

    But I managed to get the realtek provided drivers working. It seems like just the firmware is missing in 2.6.32.xx

    Problem is that I have been testing using the Live CD and so I am unsure how to make the firmare folder /lib/firmware/[uname-r]/rtl8192/ stick on a reboot.

    Any ideas?

    Pendrivelinux doesn't have an installer yet for Lucid.
