Error "No package rtl8187se available"

Post by amtrakuk » 2019/02/21 19:20:48

I tacked onto the back of a resolved thread asking for help installing a wifi driver on CentOS 7 but with a mixed response.

I have a Realtek PCI Express WiFi card. After performing the Device ID, It appears I need rtl8187se.ko.

So I added the repos

Code: Select all

rpm --import https://www.elrepo.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-elrepo.org
rpm -Uvh https://www.elrepo.org/elrepo-release-7.0-3.el7.elrepo.noarch.rpm
Then tried installing what I believe is the correct driver

Code: Select all

yum install rtl8187se
Only to get a Error "No package rtl8187se available"

Someone said it is kmod-rtl8187se

So I ran

Code: Select all

yum install kmod-rtl8187se
which also didn't work?

Am I doing it correct, have I forgotten something?

Thanks

You didn't share that information with us though... the device id that is

Sorry I didn't include that info. The repos are installed, as you see I have just tried with no luck.

I have also spotted posted in CentOS 6 but I am running 7.

Any details on where I'm going wrong too would be appreciated.

I moved you to the CentOS 7 forum instead. However, running grep -i 10ec /lib/modules/3.10.0-957.5.1.el7.x86_64/modules.* | grep -i 8199 returns no output, confirming that it has no support in the current CentOS 7 kernel. Your best bet at this point is to go out and spend $15 on a new USB card but this time, pick one that you know beforehand is going to work.

OK so unsupported hardware to me. Only seems Intel hardware/chipset works with CentOS?
