Meego Wireless(wifi) Configuration

After 3 days searching, my Wifi issue resolved for Meego on Dell Mini

Dell inspiron Mini uses TL8188CE driver. Unfortunately, this is not included in any linux version

It can be downloaded from hotfile :

Link: http://download.wireless-driver.com/driver/Realtek/RTL8192CE-VA4/rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010.tar.gz

Now We need to Compile the Drivers for this need the basic development tools at least for that. Should be able to install them as so (Meego 1.1 apparently uses zypper for command line package management, while 1.0 used yum.)

]#sudo zypper install pattern:development-tools
]#sudo zypper install rpmdevtools kernel-netbook-devel

uncompressing

Now Uncompress the file to folderrtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010

Goto command line

[abi@abi-desktop ~]$ su

Password:
[root@abi-desktop abi]# cd Documents/rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010/

[root@abi-desktop rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010]# make

[abi@abi-desktop ~]$ su

Password:

[root@abi-desktop abi]# cd Documents/rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010/
[root@abi-desktop rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010]# make

[root@abi-desktop rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010]# make install

Now Reboot the System , Wifi will start working
