rtl8192se driver install for rtl8191SEvB wireless adapter


I have recently created a script for a course I am taking on working with Linux systems. My script installs the driver needed for a rtl8191sevb wireless network adapter (NIC). It uses the rtl8191se driver that is the one needed for this wireless card. If your adapter also uses the rtl8192se driver then this should work for you to. This script is for a Fedora system, that uses yum to install needed packages. I am uploading the script here and you can run it by using the sh WLANDriver command with WLANDriver being the name of my script. After running the script you should reboot your system if iwconfig is still not registering your new WLAN0 interface, sometimes a reboot is needed to get it to register. If somebody uses this script and it works or doesn't work, please let me know so I will know if I need to improve it, thank you. Here is the link where you can download my script from http://www.4shared.com/file/jR2mGFHW/WLANDriver.html

If you choose to use this script, please post a reply here letting me know if it worked properly, and if it doesn't let me know what errors may have occurred so I can figure out what changes I may need to make to it. Thank you, I hope this script helps others I know when I initially installed this driver it was a little frustrating, hopefully it can ease this process for others. Also, I would recommend looking at the script's text file so you can see the commands it runs allowing you to understand how to compile drivers and other software you may download on your Fedora system.

Ok, the script in general is OK, but a head to change some lines and letters to make it functional. In the line 19 uname -r is with the cotes '' it should be `` and it should be rtl8192se_pci.ko and not with underline. In the line 16 RTL8192SE should be upper case not lover case. And i inserted gunzip rtl8192* in line 13. In line 14 i deleted a z letter. In the line 20 it should be r8192se_pci, not rtl8192se.

Thank you very much for this script. I hit a snag and your script saved the day. I just did the code manually to try to learn a little bit. fithy, thanks for your input as well. You're corrections were on point.

Hi I am trying to install the driver for my toshiba l500 running fedora. when executing the script, I get a couple errors. The first one has to do with the firmware/rtl8191se in line 16, whinch in the directory tree for the driver source is firmware/RTL8191SE. Thhen, there seems to be an issue with the driver ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=678669 )which gives the following error:


make -C /lib/modules/2.6.35.11-83.fc14.i686/build M= CC=gcc modules
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.35.11-83.fc14.i686'
CHK include/linux/version.h
CHK include/generated/utsrelease.h
make[3]: *** No rule to make target `missing-syscalls'. Stop.
make[2]: *** [prepare0] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.35.11-83.fc14.i686'
make[1]: *** [modules] Error 2


Did you see this issue? if you did, How did you go through it? thankyou for your help.
