Default Bug#686605: linux-image-3.2.0-3-amd64: rtl8192ce does not appear available on netinst media

Package: src:linux
Version: 3.2.23-1
Severity: wishlist

When trying to install wheezy on a new thinkpad (containing the generic "thinkpad
wifi," turning out to be a RealTek card), I noticed that the udev of kernel
modules did not seem to contain rtl8192ce as a module, making the install
not possible over wifi. Inserting the firmware did not allow the interface to
appear, and I could't seem to spot it doing a 'find /lib/modules -iname "*rtl*" '

Might it be possible to include this module? After install wheezy, with the
same firmware provided during the installation (which I went through with over
ethernet), the card worked after first boot, on the stock 3.2 kernel.

Default Bug#686605: linux-image-3.2.0-3-amd64: rtl8192ce does not appear available on netinst media

Hi,

Andrew Brouwers <abrouwers@gmail.com> (03/09/2012):
> When trying to install wheezy on a new thinkpad (containing the

we received a similar request on -boot@[1], for rtl8192se this time. I
guess adding the whole family would be nice?

Thanks for considering.
