RTL8192SU and kernel 2.6.39

Post by parapente » Fri Jun 03, 2011 11:30

I have problems using this wireless driver with the latest kernel. It works just fine in 2.6.38. If I try to boot 2.6.39 I get in dmesg that the driver cannot load the firmware. I have already installed linux-firmwares-2.6.39 and net-wireless/rtl8192su-firmware-2.6.0001.0320.2009. What could be the problem?

Could you post here the output of "dmesg" ?
For sure there is a missing firmware, and we would like to solve it by adding the same to our repos.
