Question Not (yet) enabled kernel modules in -current


We actually don't have a rolling (pinned?) thread where we could note drMozes of present modules not enabled to compile on -current or even an updated release kernel.

How come, You ask ?

Being cheap as I am, I couldn't keep off from buying the cheapest mac802 b/g/n USB dongle there is - couldn't I?

No I couldn't - "what the hack, I will build it if not shipped, that darn module!" :^]

Guess what? Bleeding edge and bleeding nose again X_^

Long story short:

Kindly please drMozes, could You please enable the following module(s) for the next kernel release [snip(edit)] :
rtl8xxxu.ko

since I happen to own an Realtek 8192EU based wifi dongle?
(I checked they are not enabled ( drivers > wireless > Realtek > ...) in the currently shipped kernel)

Kindest thanks for the swift response sir!
^_^

Just checking:
Is there a particular reason not to enable /input devices support/touchscreens/<many modules here>, besides compile time?

Maybe they are obsolete devices?

I even found some I was intending to tryout (SPI touchscreens for one), those certainly are hard to detect if not loaded as module?

thoughts anyone: to enable or not (too specific case of use - must be coded hard - not as module etc)?

I add what I know is needed by the devices officially supported, plus anything else that looks useful or people ask for.
I have to try and make sure that the installer doesn't get too big either, otherwise it won't boot and I have to spend more time figuring out how to remove stuff.

If there's anything in particular, let me know!

Kindest thanks,

making any needed module (overnight ) isn't a chore as it used to be, would there a need suddenly arise.

Otherwise I (or anyone else, most probably ) will report any product that could benefit from any missing inclusion.
