Sub_title: Do I need to compile a driver for it?
 

Newbie here and I need help in compiling a driver for my RTL8188CUS Wireless USB in Precise 5.6.1. (uses 8192CU driver). I think this is what i need to do:

get correct devx sfs
get kernel source
unzip driver

with all the above unpacked into a directory, cd to that dir in terminal and:

./configure --prefix+usr

run make

then

make install

is this right?

then what? do i need to modprobe or anything to get the new driver to work?



also if i want to try to make a pet of this at the configure step shoul i use
./configur --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu --prefix+usr CFLAGS="-mtune+generic -02 -fomit-frame-pointer" CXXFLAGS=$CFLAGS

sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for any help.

I recently solved the same problem with much the same kind of dongle. Have a look at this:
