DebianOn is an effort to document how to install, configure and use Debian on some specific hardware. Therefore potential buyers would know if that hardware is supported and owner would know how get the best out of that hardware.

The purpose is not to duplicate the Debian Official Documentation, but to document how to install Debian on some specific hardware.

This device requires a close sourced driver to work. The following instructions is based on Aureum4200, First, prepare the system for compiling modules

# aptitude update
# aptitude install module-assistant
# module-assistant prepare

Then download the driver from Realtek website, and expand it.

make

.The tool checkinstall can be used to build a simple deb package, for easy installing and uninstalling. Please note that the package name would just be the directory name, so it's a good idea to change the directory name properly, such as rtl8192.

checkinstall make install

Then the generated deb package can be installed by the following command as root

mkdir /etc/realtek
dpkg -i packageName.deb
