Realtek 8188ce on FreeBSD 9 amd 64

Postby mylux » 27 Jan 2012, 22:15

Hello everybody,
I installed FreeBSD 9-RELEASE amd64 yesterday and until some hours ago everything was going well.

The first problem began when I tried to install my wireless card.

The card is a Realtek 8188ce and I found no drivers for FreeBSD.

My only hope was in the NDIS, that builds a .ko based on a .inf and in a .sys.
I tried to run the command:
[CMD=""]ndisgen file.inf file.sys[/CMD]

And after some "Enter hits" it tried to begin the conversion.
After some errors I've got it to build, but when I run kldload I get the following error:

Code: Select all
kldload: can't load ./rtl8192ce_sys.ko: Exec format error


I tried to run ndisgen in the "WinX64 drivers", "VistaX64 Drivers", "Win7X64Drivers", but all of them display the same error

Can anyone help me found this annoying error?

the driver to my card can by found here:
http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=48&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true#RTL8188CE

Thanks in advance.

Is there a way to make it work in FreeBSD?
Thanks!

Compile it for FreeBSD, make the necessary changes. Basically you need to port the driver to FreeBSD.

The last message in the thread says it does not support RTL8188CE.

I know, but that wasn't the question that was asked. I correctly answered the quoted portion.

Getting support for the PCIe portion shouldn't be impossible though, just needs to be done:
