Just goes to show that searching the repository is ALWAYS a good thing.
I bought a smicky super-mini USB wifi adapter with the 8192 chipset family and
found that it did not work. I went through all the work to get the
driver code, compile, and installed by hand to get it to work.
If I simply would have looked in the repository FIRST, I could have
saved myself a couples hours of work.
Lesson learned. The PCLinuxOS repository is a useful resource if you
take to time to search it!
