    Question kernel rpm installation error


    Hey, i am trying to install my wireless 'Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5212 802.11abg NIC (rev 01)' in fedora 3. The manuals i've read said that i needed to install the madwifi package. Now, when installing, i tells me to install this thing:

    Error: Missing Dependency: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-2.3.legacy_FC3 is needed by package madwifi-kmdl-2.6.12-2.3.legacy_FC3
    Error: Missing Dependency: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-2.3.legacy_FC3 is needed by package madwifi-hal-kmdl-2.6.12-2.3.legacy_FC3

    So, i went ahead and downloaded the following rpm:
    kernel-2.6.12-2.3.legacy_FC3.src.rpm

    But when installing this thing, i get like a hundred lines of the following two lines:
    warning: user mockbuild does not exist - using root
    warning: group mockbuild does not exist - using root

    Now, evidently it's not working, how can i get this installed so i can continue with my wireless conquest?

    Did you try to install it with yum to satisfy dependencies automatically?

    Best regards

    Maybe with yum install madwifi-kmdl-2.6.12-2.3.legacy_FC3
    if Fedora supports your ethernet card and it is included in the repositories

    Best regards

    I'll be sure to try it up. I've been googling but apparently, not a lot of people have this kind of problem. Or at least figure out the solution for themselves.
