Support for Realtek RTL8191SU chipset on USB device
Last modified: 2010-10-01 09:43:31 EDT
Description of problem:
None of the USB devices with chipset Realtek RTL819xSU is supported and yet the linux kernel has drivers for it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Very. Not working at all -- no drivers and no source in this version of the kernel.
Steps to Reproduce:
I have a nettop, Foxconn NT-510-A-B-A-NA, with the 8191SE, Fedora 13 and 14 Preview don't recognize it. Ubuntu 10.10 recognizes and configures the chip. I don't think the drivers are in the kernel but there are Linux drivers available
We only include drivers that are in official upstream kernel (i.e. not from staging, not from vendor site, etc). Try http://rpmfusion.org/, I _think_ realtek wlan devices could be supported by kmod-staging.
I'm closing this bug with upstream resolution, that mean we (or someone from community :-) will work on include realtek drivers in kernel.org .
