Hello openSUSE folks,
Just did a fresh install of openSUSE 11.3 on my Toshiba Satellite laptop
Everything works but my wireless connection.
I'm using Realtek provided driver for my Realtek RTL8191SE Wireless LAN
It worked perfectly in the previous openSUSE 11.2 installation.
I tried to troubleshoot why it isn't working in 11.3
When I execute
it gives me this type of message:
nl80211: 'nl80211' generic netlink not found
Failed to initialize driver interface
I'm using desktop kernel. May be something relevant to my case was
disabled in it?
Should I change it to the plain kernel?
Thank you in advance for any help or hints.
I also have a Toshiba Satellite with the same chip. The latest driver
from Realtek was installed manually by downloading it from the product
support site. WiFi cannot be activated using yast as an ip address
cannot be obtained. The only way is to remove all settings from yast
and to manually activate the connection using iwconfig and dhclient.
Has anyone been able to activate the connection at boot and if so any
hints will be appreciated?
