    F15, RTL8192 and Staging Drivers

    Have recently updated my netbook from F14 to F15. I have always got the Realtek chipped wireless card to work by installing the staging drivers from RPMfusion for every previous version of Fedora I have installed on it. However, having just downloaded kmod-staging from the RPMfusion repo the driver appears not have have been installed (lspci -k listing no kernel module or driver).

    Any thoughts?

    Re: F15, RTL8192 and Staging Drivers

    I just tried the same thing after installing a new kernel. For some reason installing kmod-staging defaults the installation to the old kernel. I had to reinstall f15 and include KDE because Gnome 3 wouldn't log in. I updated the kernel before doing anything else and then installed th staging drivers. r8192_pci.ko is located in the old "6-26.rc1/extra/staging" folder. I tried reinstalling staging drivers but it didn't change anything. I don't have any idea how to get the module loaded from the old kernel. Gnome doesn't work with the old kernel and I don't like KDE.

    Re: F15, RTL8192 and Staging Drivers

    Ummm, my kernel is 2.6.38.6-27 and the kmod-staging is 2.6.38.7-1.fc15. I don't know much about numbering conventions but this would seem to imply that the staging module is later than my kernel. Correct me if I'm wrong.
