Dear friends,
my card is a ASUS N13 USB WIFI card. The following lsusb gives me this:

Code:
#lsusb
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0b05:17ab ASUSTek Computer, Inc. USB-N13 802.11n Network Adapter (rev. B1) [Realtek RTL8192CU]


The kernel driver itself seems to be buggy, which is confirmed by other users in other distro forums. the connection can be established and used, but its hanging somewhen after some minutes and the usb dongle needs to be replugged in to make it work again.

To solve the problem I have to install the driver from the RealTek website, which is: RTL819xC_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20120806.zip

The makefile, which works for example in Ubuntu well (tested by me), isn't working in Gentoo for a reason which I don't know and the code looks very complex to me.

This is the makefile:

Code:
EXTRA_CFLAGS += $(USER_EXTRA_CFLAGS)
EXTRA_CFLAGS += -O1
#EXTRA_CFLAGS += -O3
#EXTRA_CFLAGS += -Wall
#EXTRA_CFLAGS += -Wextra
#EXTRA_CFLAGS += -Werror

#EXTRA_CFLAGS += -Wshadow -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-qual -Wstrict-prototypes -Wmissing-prototypes

EXTRA_CFLAGS += -Wno-unused-parameter
EXTRA_CFLAGS += -Wno-unused-function

This is the error I get when I use #make

    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-3.5.0-gentoo'

    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/linux-3.5.0-gentoo/arch/x86/Makefile'.  Stop.
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-3.5.0-gentoo'
    make: *** [modules] Error 2


The driver directory includes many *.c files which I am surely not supposed to touch in the subdirectories: core, hal, include and os_dep. There are also files clean, ifcfg-wlan0, Kconfig wlan0dhcp and the makefile which I tried to execute.

I backlisted the kernel driver rtl8192cu. The new driver is supposed to be called 8192cu without the rtl.

Please help me to install the new driver so I can properly use my wlan card.

Thank you.

If I use the command:

Code:
#make install


It will show the following message:

Code:
install -p -m 644 8192cu.ko  /lib/modules/3.5.0-gentoo/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
install: cannot stat ‘8192cu.ko’: No such file or directory
make: *** [install] Error 1


The directory /lib/modules/3.5.0-gentoo/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ exists.

Under /lib/modules/3.5.0-gentoo/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8192cu/ is a file rtl8192cu.ko

Maybe this helps.

I updated the kernel to 3.6.0, hope the kernel driver will work better.

Is after a kernel update the new driver automatically used?

Unfortunately the kernel update did not change the problem.

alocacoc ... here is the source of the problem. You must be booted the target kernel (and so match 'uname -r') when compiling the module, and /lib/modules/$(KVER)/build must exist and point to the kernel sources (build -> /usr/src/linux-${KVER}). So, first 'make && make modules_install' for the target kernel, then install the kernel and boot it. You should then be able to compile the rtl8192cu module.

#uname -r

gives me:

3.6.0-gentoo

This kernel is booted now.

The directory /lib/modules/3.6.0-gentoo/build exists, it contains a makefile, Module.symvers, system.map, config and a directory called include.

The directory /usr/src/3.6.0-gentoo/ got quite the same files.

So it means my compiled kernel is 3.6.0 and I have also booted this kernel 3.6.0.

Isn't my target kernel always the booted kernel?

With 'make &&make modules install' I will compile my kernel again, right?

How to link /lib/modules/3.6.0-gentoo/build to /usr/src/3.6.0-gentoo/?

Like this? 'ln -s /lib/modules/3.6.0-gentoo/build /usr/src/3.6.0-gentoo/'

Thank you for your help.

alocacoc ... this will be a symlink to the kernel sources, its created when running 'make modules_install'.

This is incorrect ... the directory will/should be named '/usr/src/linux-3.6.0-gentoo/', I'm not sure why you have the above, or if its a typo on your part, but gentoo-sources should be installed as linux-{version}-gentoo.

alocacoc wrote:

yes and no ... with the above (typo's) you'll just get an error as "space" is a specical character and the command is "&& make modules_install" not "make modules install". But, otherwise, yes the above will compile the kernel and install the modules.

No, firstly the link is created when 'make modules_install" is run, so there is no need to link, secondly the path is incorrect, thirdly, 'ln -s /from /to' and you have it visa-versa, and fourthly, to change a symlink the '-f' switch should be used.

You are 100% right, the directory is call /usr/src/linux-3.6.0-gentoo/, my typing mistake.

When I do in /lib/modules/3.6.0-gentoo/build

Code:
# make modules_install


I get this error:

Code:
Makefile:323: /usr/src/linux-3.6.0-gentoo/scripts/Kbuild.include: No such file or directory
Makefile:564: /usr/src/linux-3.6.0-gentoo/arch/x86/Makefile: No such file or directory
/bin/sh: /usr/src/linux-3.6.0-gentoo/scripts/gcc-goto.sh: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/linux-3.6.0-gentoo/arch/x86/Makefile'.  Stop.


It is quite the same error like when I try to make the wlan driver module, so I am doing something wrong in general here, nothing to do with the driver module itself I think.

The correct command would be 'ln -f /usr/src/linux-3.6.0-gentoo /lib/modules/3.6.0-gentoo/build', but I don't need it.

Thanks for your help.

alocacoc ... ignore /lib/modules/3.6.0-gentoo/build its just a symlink to /usr/src/linux-{version}-gentoo ... its there meerly to point a build at the sources for those modules.

Is this perhaps a VM? ... anyhow, the package isn't installed correctly as some files from that package are missing.

Code:
# equery belongs /usr/src/linux-3.6.4-geek/scripts/Kbuild.include
 * Searching for /usr/src/linux-3.6.4-geek/scripts/Kbuild.include ...
sys-kernel/geek-sources-3.6.4 (/usr/src/linux-3.6.4-geek/scripts/Kbuild.include)

carefull ... that would get you a hard link and not a symbolic link ... "ln -sf"

Something was wrong with the sources. I reinstalled the 3.6.0 sources. Then I created the correct symbolic link to this source directory and installed the module with 'make modules' and 'make modules install'. Everything went correctly I guess. The module seems to be installed. I blacklisted the other driver rtl8192cu.

Now in KDE I see in the systray under WLAN Interfaces 'driver: rtl8192cu'. I am not sure how to see if my new driver is now actually working.

This are some commands where I'm not sure how to see if my module is now used by my wlan card.

Code:
# lsmod | grep 8192
8192cu                514313  0

if I use

Code:

It is showing me the kernel driver for devices like my eth0, but not for my usb devices. lsusb doesn't have the -k feature. How to see?

alocacoc ... yes, sorry, I'd completely missed it was a USB device. The device registration should appear in /var/log/messages. However, if the device/driver is detected then you should see the network interface in iwconfig/ifconfig/iw.

The newest driver 8192cu from realtex site only support Linux Kernel 2.6.18~2.6.38 and Kernel 3.0.8 .

I also experience the compile problem. I am on kernel version 3.15.0.

Can anyone help to make the 8192cu driver? The one supplied by the kernel (module) is broken and repeatedly becomes unusable. :(

Hello,

I see that you are having difficulty.

If all else fails, try ndiswrapper if necessary.

ndiswrapper uses windows xp .inf files to install windows drivers.

Here are the instructions: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wireless_network_configuration#ndiswrapper

Ndiswrapper is available through portage.

run
Code:
emerge ndiswrapper


then download the windows driver for your hardware at realtek's website.

Code:


mkdir realtek_windows-driver

mv longrealtekfilename.zip realtek_windows-driver

unzip longrealtekfilename.zip

cd longrealtekfoldername

cd RTWLANE_Driver

cd WinXP

ndiswrapper -i netrtwlane.inf

ndiswrapper -m

ndiswrapper -mi

ndiswrapper -l

(Outputs installed driver)

modprobe ndiswrapper

(if loaded successfully proceed below)

nano /etc/conf.d/modules

=====>modules="ndiswrapper"

reboot



Once the above processes have been completed,

you can reboot your system and your wireless internet connection should be working.


I hope this works for you.


Sincerely,


donald3.heckel
