    Mandrake 10.1 and Orinico wireless


    Hello, I am trying to get Orinoco Gold working on linux (from Avaya). I downloaded the drivers, but I get errors when I do ./Build after make config.


    Anyone have any help?

    This is what I get when building:

    You shouldn't have to build drivers for the Orinoco Gold Card. The orinoco drivers are some of the first included with Linux distros and I would think are certainly included with MDK 10.1 Open a terminal and type:

    lsmod
    or

    /sbin/lsmod

    And see if you see something that says "orinoco" something or other...

    Just checked my laptop which uses the same card. Type

    lsmod | more

    press enter to look further down the page. The driver should be orinoco_cs.

    Do:

    modprobe orinoco_cs

    pull the card out, wait a few seconds then push it back in.

    I did see that, and I did do modprobe. The lights on the card never turn on....


    It works fine when I boot into windows.

    Did you configure it in the Mandrake Control Center?

    HardDrake doesnt detect it, and when I try to load the driver manually through the 'Internet Connections -> Wireless', it wont let me. I tried all the orinoco drivers.

    BTW card is Avaya Wireless World Card GOLD. Someone said this was Orinoco, but it does not say that anywhere on the card itself.

    Have a look at this and see if they are talking about your same card...

    Found this too...

    http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/sh...cat=998&page=1

    Both are reported to use the orinoco_cs driver. The only thing that bugs me is this card is listed as a PC24E-H-FC and you say yours is a PC24-E-HC. Otherwise, both are "Avaya Gold world card."

    It *should* be the same card but these days you never know. Hardaware manufacturers will release model number 12345 that will work with Linux, and the next will be model number 12345-b that doesn't because they went with an entirely different chipset.
