This package is for firmware, not kernel modules. The clue is in the
name.

We aleady provide the rtl8192s_usb kernel module which should handle the
RTL8191S, but it does not currently list the right device ID. I'll try
to fix that.

I own an USB wlan dongle (Sitecom WL-352) which claims to be a rtl8191s device
(usb-devices).

I manually modprobed rtl8192s_usb, then restarted networking service but
iwconfig says no wireless extensions are detected.

Should I file a normal bug report?

Antonio

No, I've reassigned this bug to the kernel package (linux-2.6) and it
should be fixed in the next version. Let us know if it isn't.
