I recently bought a new computer and after getting my secondary OS up and running smoothly it is time to install my primary OS - Linux.
I have installed Fedora 17 KDE and everything seems to work splendidly, except for the fact that the wireless does not seem to run.
lshw -C network -numeric gives the following output:
*-network UNCLAIMED description: Network controller product: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. [10EC:8723] vendor: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. [10EC] physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:03:00.0 version: 00 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list configuration: latency=0 resources: ioport:d000(size=256) memory:f7900000-f7903fff
I have searched on Google and found this AskUbuntu question on this exact matter and I have downloaded the two files linked in that reply that another seemingly got his card working with.
These files are:
After downloading them I ran
yum install make gcc kernel-header kernel-devel patch
and extracted the folders into ~/Documents and tried to run make
This in turn gave the following error:
and exited with error 2
This is how far I have gotten and I can't seem to find what I should do next.
rtlwifi is not loaded on my current system.
