Thank you very much for your efforts! I have now three different laptops of two different brands using this module. Is there any chance of getting it into the mainline?

Please do not use my "big" Repo, for Hardware use: https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/home:Sauerland:hardware

You have to install the kmp and the blacklist package or as alternative only rtw88kmp-xxxxxxx.

But I do not know, if that will be working with the "new" kernel from SLE in Leap 15.3.

I am working on it.

Use your TAB-Key?

rtl8821ce is not a working name of an rpm.......

Maybe you should search before you install?

I understand that the command line on software.opensuse.org is false to install manually the package. Thank you

Hello I added "https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:Sauerland:hardware/openSUSE_Leap_15.3_Update/home:Sauerland:hardware.repo" as repo and try to install

  • rtl8821ce-kmp-default and
  • rtl8821ce-blacklist-rtw_8821ce correct? I get the missing packages
  • "ksym(default:module_layout) = 20574e54" (two times)
  • "ksym(preempt:module_layout) = 52f0075"

same if I want to install rtw88-kmp-default

It is a fresh install what did I wrong?

"ksym(default:module_layout) = 20574e54" (two times)

"ksym(preempt:module_layout) = 52f0075"

zypper is writing 2 Solutions for that, use the second one by "breaking rtl8821ce" or so.

I do not know, why that will be done.

Ok thank you for the fast response and the clarification. I installed the two packages but the adapter wont be discovered. Do I have to perform additional actions? Also the rtw88-kmp-default does not work (I had to do the same setting because of the missing packages error)

I have a fresh install of Leap 15.2 and it wont be a deal for me to switch to 15.3 will this maybe help?

Thank you for your efforts!

1.You have to disable secure boot in Bios/uefi

2.The rtl8821ce-kmp must match to the installed and running kernel: default-default or preempt-preempt.

Please ask on the official opensuse-forums for help:

Please do not write such nonsense here, open a thread in forums.opensuse.org.
