Or are you using different kernel source sfs ?
For example...there is floating several kernel source sfs for Lucid Puppy and not all compiles extra third party modules...at least not easily.

Muggins & Permasu, my apologies again for getting back so slow. Again was waiting for email telling me I had new messages. Should have just looked. Muggins, followed your last instructions of booting from CD and at last it compiled and installed correctly, hooray. I was starting to think I was jinxed.

Thanks for taking the extra time to help a beginner get the compiling sequence working.

Gary

Can you tell me if this .pet is still available? I clicked on it, but was given the message that it is no longer available.

dk60902,
Your private message to me indicated that you are running Puppy 5.2.8,
but it appears you have downloaded a driver dotpet for Puppy 4.1.x ???
Check the title of the forum thread where you obtained that dotpet.

What is the WPA fix for this driver?

It's hard to know what you're referring to ... possibly the configuration tweak I helped muggins to add to his Realtek driver dotpet for Puppy 4.1.x - which enables the Network Wizard (in Puppy 4.1.x) to recognise the new driver ...
... but this has nothing to do with a solution for you.
Your solution is to download and install the relevant driver for your puppy version and kernel version. Start here -
"Drivers for Puppy 5.1-5.2.8 with 2.6.33.2 kernel"

Yes, I did download the .pet from the link you sent (on page 2), and now I understand that it is for 5.2.8. The WPA fix was for puppy 4.1 (not applicable for me). I have a work computer with wireless USB with chipset RTL8188CUS running Win XP. I want to get Puppy 5.2.8 running on it. Thank you.

Hello,

This is my first post here, so I hope it's in the right place etc.

I know I'm resurrecting an ancient thread, but it is very visible in Google when looking for "RTL8188CUS puppy" and the like so I think it's a good place to post it in hopes that it may help others.

I wanted to get an RTL8188CUS going under Wary 5.3.9, kernel 2.6.32.59. The above posts worked like a champ. Specifically:

1. Downloaded devx and kernel sources. Kernel sources were hard to find for this version of Wary, in the end I found them here:
ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/sfs/

2. Downloaded and installed sfs_load to load the above two files - worked flawlessly.


3. Downloaded the driver source from http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=21&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&ProdID=274&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true and unzipped it somewhere handy.

4. Enetered the driver directory in the console, performed chmod +x on install.h and gave it a go. Make thows an error. cd'ed into the driver directory and ran "make" and "make install". No errors.

5. Plugged in my wifi adapter and used the simple network setup to connect to the network. WPA/WPA2 working fine. Used "ifconfig eth0 down" to drop my wired connection to make doubly sure it was all good. I am using the adapter to post this message now.

Thanks to all above for your clear directions - I hope my contribution is also useful.

Further to my above post, I have created a .pet. This was done on an intel i686 box but the driver work fine on my amd64 box. It my first ever package for any distro so I'm still emerging through the murk!

After installing run:

Code:
depmod -a
modprobe 8192cu


as per pemasu's post above. The use your favourite network setup tool as you normally would.
rtl8188C_8192C_usb_linux-3.4.4_4749.20120730-i686.pet
