Hi,

I am testing/using kernel 2.6.29-56 from Kernel:HEAD repo, which is
working fine, and very quick with my eee-pc-901.
However, with this kernel no hw-info is available for the rt2860 wifi
card, so it is not there to configure and use.

The other kernel which came with 11.1: 2.6.27.19- 3.2-pae, does find the
card, and it is useble.
How will i be able to get the card detected by the 2.6.29-56 kernel?


It seems that a kernel module is needed: rt2860sta-kmp-default.
This module is not in the repos.

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/11316859/com/rt2860sta-kmp-default-1.8.0.0_2.6.25.5_1.1-31.1.i586.rpm.html

has one for older kernel, but that rpm cannot be installed.
Is there any hope this module will return, and be maintained?
Or standard be inside the kernel modules list, or whatever?

It is in the 11.1 kernel, so you could just use the 11.1 kernel itself...

The reason for it missing in the 2.6.29 build is:

CONFIG_STAGING_EXCLUDE_BUILD=y

Why is it set? Jeff? Greg? Don't we want the staging drivers too?

It was probably just left on from the SLE split. I'm committing a change
now that enables those drivers. They'll automatically end up in the
- -extra package unless we want to change that.

I don't think we need split kernel packages on opensuse anyway.
