Kernel 2.6.32-26 is missing driver r8192e_pci.ko

Postby Westrabua » 14/12/2010, 23:55

Hello everyone!

Just signed up here on the forums. Great work Voria!!!
Got a Samsung N210 since about four weeks now and Ubuntu together with your PPA is just great. Thank you! +1


So here´s the reason for my post:
Just wanna let you know that the current Kernel 2.6.32-26-generic #49~ppa1~loms~lucid-Ubuntu is missing the driver r8192e_pci.ko.

And because of that, pm-suspend wont work.


I attached my "pm-suspend.log"-file. You can see that it worked (and still works; booted with the 2.6.32.25 kernel to test it) with Kernel 2.6.32.25, but started to fail with the Kernel 2.6.32.26.


The command "find /lib/modules -name r*8192* -print 2>&1" gives the following:

There´s a

but no

Code: Select all

/lib/modules/2.6.32-26-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/r8192e_pci.ko



I found the problem with some help on the ubuntuusers.de-forum.
Here´s the link to the original post (maybe translate it in English or ask me, if there are some more questions):

Hope this helps.

Hello again!

I dont know what happened:

Either Voria updated the PPA or something went totally wrong as I installed Kernel 2.6.32-26 along with the other things from the PPA for the first time.
Anyway, just did a quick "apt-get update", "apt-get upgrade" and an "apt-get install samsung-wireless-2.6.32-26" and now I got my

Code: Select all

/lib/modules/2.6.32-26-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/r8192e_pci.ko

and pm-suspend working again. ::)

So for case one: Thanks Voria!
Case two: Nevermind... :lol:

hey guys!

the same problem exists for Kernel 2-6-32-27. I don't found a topic in the forum about the new problem so far, so I just decided to paste it here.

Is there a new samsung-wireless for 2-6-32-27 in progress Voria, or should I copy the r8192e_pci.ko from 2-6-32-26 in the 2-6-32-27 folder?


Great work Voria, thanks a lot!

I don't know if this is related to your problem
but since mid-November-2010 the wireless driver coming with
samsung-wireless is called r8192e_pci_realtek.ko
