The new Linux Kernel 3.0.0-39-desktop in Tumbleweed regresses my wireless on my Lenovo ideapad S205 netbook.
$ lspci | grep etwork
03:00.0 Network controller: RaLink RT3090 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe
Before (2.6.39.xx): 3 network interfaces present using ifconfig and iwconfig (eth0, lo, wlan0)
After (3.0.0-39.1): only 2 network interfaces present (eth0, lo)
Missing kernel module. The rt2860sta kernel module which was used by 2.6.39 has been kicked from staging,
rt2800pci was supposed to take over, however has not been configured into the Tumbleweed build.
Download kernel sources from lkml.org. Then build and install an rpm changing the configuration
(Device drivers/Network device support/Wireless Lan/Ralink driver support/Ralink rt27xx/rt28xx/rt30xx (PCI/PCIe/PCMCIA) support)
to include the rt2800pci kernel module ( How To Compile A Kernel - The SuSE Way | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials ).
The wireless should work again after reboot.
Or wait for GKH to fix the Tumbleweed build,
- or give me some hints, where I’ve screwed up and could have solved the problem much faster and easier
