View Full Version : kmod-compat-wireless-2.6.39-1.fc15.1.x86_64 requires kernel-uname-r =

kmod-compat-wireless-2.6.39-1.fc15.1.x86_64 requires kernel-uname-r = I am installing this package in order to use my rtl8192se wireless card. Does anyone know how I can resolve this error for this .rpm?

This is my kernel version for f15:

/lib/modules/ No such file or directory.

and the above is the error I get when I try to compile the driver from source.

I have tried 'yum install kernel-devel' which is no help at all for my x86_64 setup.

Thank you,

I think the key to all this was to do:

yum install kernel-devel
yum groupinstall development-tools

and most importantly do a restart and then compile the drivers from source. I think I missed the reboot part earlier. In any event my wireless card is working now.

Hi there, may I know, where do you download the kmod-compat-wireless-2.6.39-1.fc15.1.x86_64 source , i can't find it.

I don't know exactly. If this is in regards to the Realtek wireless card I think it is 8192SE then your best bet is to find a distro that supports the card naively. Compiling the kernel can be a complex issue and is very distro specific as to what files and packages you need. There are distros available that support the card without doing anything at all.

i mean the .rpm, where do you download it. or you install it via yum?

I am trying to find the answer to that question also. It was an issue that I could never resolve.
