Description David A. De Graaf 2012-06-21 15:33:19 EDT
Description of problem:
r8712u.ko is missing

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Do yum update, getting new kernel-3.4.2-1.fc16.x86_64 and kmod-staging-3.4.2-1.fc16.x86_64.x86_64
2.  On reboot, see that wireless interface is gone.
Actual results:
r8712u.ko module is no longer available

Expected results:
r8712u.ko module must be available

Additional info:
For those of us with an RNX-N180UBE usb wireless adapter as the only means of connecting to the network, the r8712u driver module is a necessity.  It has worked well over the past several kernel releases, and on this basis I've bought several more of these good quality 802.11-n devices.  Suddenly this essential driver is gone and I'm incommunicado.

# l /lib/modules
3.3.6-3.fc16.x86_64/  3.3.7-1.fc16.x86_64/  3.4.2-1.fc16.x86_64/
# find /lib/modules -name "r8712u*"

but nothing in 3.4.2-1.fc16.x86_64/  so the 3.4.2-1.fc16.x86_64 kernel cannot be used.

Please tell me this was a simple oversight, and r8712u.ko will be restored ASAP.
