so I'm asking for help compiling compat-wireless
running 11.04 on an asus 1201n
wireless has not been great, cuts in and out.
other folks have said they are using a driver from compat-wireless, was trying to do the same, but so far have failed.
i downloaded ompat-wireless-3.0-rc4-1.tar.bz2
followed the instructions from that site -- everything seemed to work except after reboot no wifi. still use rtl8192se_pci which i believe is the default with natty and is also not good.
hope you can help thanksCode:gilad@maya:~$ lspci -nn | grep 0280 07:00.0 Network controller : Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8191SEvA Wireless LAN Controller [10ec:8171] (rev 10) gilad@maya:~$
EDIT -- I think i just found my problem. newbie mistake i think.
i updated my ubuntu in the same sesion i installed the drivers from compat. the result is that my ubuntu now loads a newer kernel header than I installed the driver went from. so i guess i just have to reinstall it in this version? will try
still curious what your hunch is chilli
