I've just started using my new Pi.
I finally managed to get the wifi dongle working (Realtek RTL8188CU based).
However the system was unstable. It kept locking up after a few minutes of use. So I tried the rpi-updater to upgrade the firmware.
It seems to have broken it. I'm getting messages saying that the 8192cu "disagrees about version of symbol module_layout"
Some websites have suggested recompiling the 8192 drivers... but whilst I've used linux for a number of years, I've never messed with recompiling things.
Can anyone suggest either :

Any idea when the firmware is likely to be 'fixed' (assuming that this is the problem)
