Please let me know if there"s a better way to format plain text. The "paste as plain text" option doesn"t seem to do much.
I"m using the debian6-13-04-2012 image. I have one of these. It"s got an RTL8188CUS chipset. After following the WiFi instructions here, I plug the adapter in and I get the following from dmesg:
usb 1-1.2: new high speed USB device number 5 using dwc_otg
usb 1-1.2: New USB device found, idVendor=0bda, idProduct=8176
usb 1-1.2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
usb 1-1.2: Manufacturer: Realtek
usb 1-1.2: SerialNumber: 00e04c000001
cfg80211: Calling CRDA to update world regulatory domain
After a very long time, I also get this from dmesg:
rtl8192cu:_rtl92cu_read_adapter_info():<0-0> EEPROM ID(0x0) is invalid!!
rtl8192cu:rtl92cu_init_sw_vars():<0-0> Failed to request firmware!
rtlwifi:rtl_usb_probe():<0-0> Can"t init_sw_vars.
usbcore: registered new interface driver rtl8192cu
I was going to try the drivers from Realtek, but I can"t figure out where / how to get the linux-headers needed to compile:
make ARCH=armv6l CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/3.1.9+/build M=/home/pi/rtl8188C_8192C_8192D_usb_linux_v3.3.2_3192.20120103 modules
make: *** /lib/modules/3.1.9+/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [modules] Error 2
Any tips? I"m going to give the arch distro a try, but I"ve never used arch before.
