first time kernel recomile - module questions
I'm in the midst of my first kernel recompile (2.4.26) and I'm having moderate success. I have the kernel successfully compiled and installed and even booting thanks to a great HOWTO at http://www.digitalhermit.com/linux/K...ild-HOWTO.html
I have hit one stumbling point so far (i'm sure there will be more to come) and this is my Netgear 802.11b wireless PCI Adapter (MA311). Going through xconfig I thought that I had selected everything necessary to get this thing to work (orinoco_pci, orinoco, and hermes modules) however the device cannot be activated once the system boots. All three modules are loaded, but my NIC still work work. I shouldn't say that it doesn't work at all, the GNOME wireless link monitor shows that the NIC is getting a signal, but I cannot activate the device. Could this be an iptables problem?? Any thoughts for a fix ???
Thanks in advance
