Kernel Patches 3038 and 3709 with compat-wireless

Just installed 11.3 on a older Dell Dimension 8200 with a D-Link DWA-160 N dual band USB card. The install went ok and the card works (seems a little slow right now but that is next on the list). However, when I run YOU I get the following conflict:

“compat-wireless-kmp-default-2.6.37_k2.6.34.0_12-17.1.i586 requires kernel (default:drivers_usb_core)=6faa2c62dac4f41d, but this requirement cannot be met. Uninstallable providers: kernel-default-base-2.6.34-12.3.i586[openSUSE-11.3 11.3-1.82]”

when the system wants to install patch:Kernel-3038.noarch and patch:Kernel-3709.noarch. I cannot seem to find a suitable provider for the default:drivers_usb_core. Is this something to address here or do I need to go to

TIA for all help and suggestions.


I guess you have installed a kernel module
for the kernel of openSUSE factory/factory-tested/11.4 (compare my signature)
or openSUSE Tumbleweed (the search for 11.3 seems to include that extra new rolling release)
but you will probably need something for the kernel of openSUSE 11.3 (probably now compare again my signature).

Maybe you try to use

uname -a

and than post the result here?

And from the other side of your problem:
Could you also try to find the ID number of your wireless device so that we will be able to be a bit more sure about the fitting software (kernel module, driver, firmware, …)?
