Re: madwifi

I have been using the CVS version of the driver with 2.6 for awhile, and it appears to work fine. However, it does require vmlinux in order to complete its compilation process.

When the kernel is built, vmlinux is created. I believe that the Fedora 2.6 kernel RPMs package vmlinux in the kernel-debuginfo RPM. Therefore, you can get vmlinux for your running kernel by rebuilding the kernel using the kernel-source RPM with the kernel config file in the boot directory, or by installing the kernel-debuginfo RPM.

Personally, I have been rebuilding the kernel from the kernel-source RPM, since kernel-debuginfo is so large.

I've been searching all over the internet and can't seem to get the
madwifi driver for my DWL-G650 wifi card to compile. Has anyone had
success compiling the cvs version of madwifi under Core 2 test 1? Everytime I try the build process complains about not finding
'/lib/modules/2.6.3-1.96/build/vmlinux'... Is this not included with
the kernel source? Isin't this driver suppose to work with a 2.6

I've attempted it - but encountered similar errors. I suspect madwif
needs some updates to work with 2.6
