I manage to key in the code using root access and I can see that the /etc/modules file has the 8188eu driver name within it.
However, once I restart the Raspberry Pi, the driver still does not load....
I wonder what is the problem.
Thanks for your help so far.
That is very strange. It is possible the driver was not installed with the correct permissions or something like that. I don't think I've seen this problem before.
I am running the same version of raspbian, #541, with the same driver and have no problems. However I usually do not use the GUI and set up my wifi just using /etc/network/interfaces although I have also set it up using wpa_supplicant similar to using the GUI and it is OK then as well.
Can you report the output of command sudo find / -name 8188eu.ko
. If you are root user you will not need sudo. This command should show all instances of the file 8188eu.ko and where they are installed. Then can you run the command ls -l /directory/where/file/is/8188eu.ko
so we can check the permissions. Like the following
- Code: Select all
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo find / -name 8188eu.ko
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ ls -l /lib/modules/3.6.11+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 973773 Aug 31 00:12 /lib/modules/3.6.11+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ ls -l /home/pi/8188eu.ko
-rw-r--r-- 1 pi pi 973773 Aug 31 00:12 /home/pi/8188eu.ko
pi@raspberrypi ~ $
The only other thing I can think of at the moment is delete all copies of 8188eu.ko and to reinstall the driver from the command prompt using the commands
- Code: Select all
tar -zxvf 8188eu-20130830.tar.gz
sudo install -p -m 644 8188eu.ko /lib/modules/3.6.11+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
sudo insmod /lib/modules/3.6.11+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko
sudo depmod -a
with you not logged in as root user. These will install it in the correct place with the right permissions and then hopefully you will find it works.
