Driver for realtek RTL8188su wifi-card


Hi,
anyone tried to run wifi-card based on this chip? In coming days I will build myself a proprietary driver for 2.6.27.7 kernel. I mostly aware about patches for wpa_supplicant. Should I use a source for wpa_supplicant from slackware 12.2 distro or a new version? Do you know about any other prerequisities (requirements, dependencies) for building this proprietary driver?

The Realtek RTL8188SU wifi card is supported by the kernel module r8192s_usb, beyond 2.6.32. Just upgrade the kernel.

Is it possible to upgrade to 2.6.32 kernel on slack 12.2? If I fail compilation I'll try to upgrade the kernel.
