wireless dongles

Postby cbuffer » Fri Sep 30, 2011 5:13 pm

I recently bought an Edimax EW-7811Un device. If I plug it into this laptop while running Sabayon from a recent cover DVD it works perfectly without me having to do anything. It wont work with Fedora, Centos or Linux Mint, and if I try to install the linux driver supplied, all three throw up an error at "make". Has anyone else had this problem, and has anyone found any other distro where it just works. Sabayon was the last one from which I expected out of the box use!
TIA

Sorry about that - I couldn't see how to do it.

I'm pretty sure members can delete their own posts, but as I only see the controls available to me as a mod, I'm not sure if they appear in the same place on your view of the page. :?

Which driver are you trying ?

From what I gather, you want the RTL8129CU driver from HERE
