    Open rtl8192cu_linux_v2.0.xxxx.2010xxxx/os_dep/osdep_service.c and edit the following line:
    (probably line no. 291):

    change this line

    init_MUTEX(prwlock)

    to

    sema_init(prwlock,1)

    now compile and insert the module

    Thanks to the Moopi solution, I have got this working on my son's little netbook - given it a new lease of life since the internal wifi adapter is very flaky.

    Thanks again!!

    I cannot get this to work on my Emac running Lubuntu..

    As it's a PowerPC is that a major problem why I cannot get this to compile or install properly..

    I see that you have the RTL8192

    In the past I had the RTL8111/8168B and I learned that I had to blacklist the 8169 and until I did Ndiswrapper wouldn't work even with the inf file.

    Trying to be of help-

    This is your ethernet device; not wireless. Are you saying that somehow the ethernet must be stopped for wireless to work???

    Incidentally Ndiswrapper won't work as it returns the error : Unable to find a version on ndiswrapper! even though both the Common and Source are installed of Synaptic

    Your device uses the module rtl8192cu which is included by default in Ubuntu 11.10 but must be compiled in older versions like yours. Did you try and fail to compile it? I am not too sure about PPC.

    Yeah what sucks is that 11.10 screws my PowerPC up somewhat Chronic..

    Always totally scraps my PC..

    Get all sorts of Issues so sticking to 11.04 which Still Works..

    Tried all sorts of attempts of Compiling and Installing Drivers for this but I use 11.10 Lubuntu on a i386 and needs no Drivers but any attempt to put 11.10 on my PowerPC will render my PC as Scrap until they fix it..

    Mem..
