    Default RTL8192SE/RTL8191SE driver in kernel

    The rtl8192se driver, which handles the RTL8192SE/RTL8191SE devices, was
    accepted into the kernel at wireless testing today. It will be a regular part of
    the 2.6.40 kernel, and should be part of the compat-wireless sources within a
    couple of days. Once that happens, it will soon be part of the compat-wireless
    package.

    lwfinger,

    Thanks for all the efforts, looking forward to being able to run a new install or update without having to reinstall that driver also.

    When it becomes automatic will depend on which kernel openSUSE uses for 12.1. If
    2.6.39, then you will wait for 12.2. If 2.6.30, then 12.1 will work out of the box.

    Of course you meant 2.6.40 for the latter.

    This is great news Larry.

    I have just installed the drivers from Taiwan and you release this lol anyway I got wireless working now so IDC but as I am running tumbleweed do I still have to wait for 2.6.40 or can I install something now to update it? I know when the next kernel update is released my installed version will vanish, is it just a case of make install reboot to get it back? If so that is fine, I can manage until then.. Who knows if this latptop will still be functioning properly by 12.2 god that will be like July 2012.

    I have a HP DV7 that wouldn't work pre 11.3 and now with 11.4 its just about ready for new keyboard and battery lol if it wasn't a 600 quid laptop I wouldn't bother!!

    Driver rtl8192se was added to compat-wireless today. When that package for
    openSUSE reaches the May 10 version, then you can use it. It may take a while,
    as the current package was built on April 19. Your other option would be to
    build c-w from source.
