ADM8211 driver on Mandrake 10 (Wireless)
I've been working on this for a while now and finally got the kernel module for the driver to compile. I'm a linux newbie but forgive me if I'm wrong, but don't I need to get the kernel to load the module, then the Mandrake Control Center to recognize it as a network driver? I don't know how to do that, even IF that's what you do.
the README says to
#insmod 8211.ko (the created module)
then restart the computer, start the network if required, then configure using "iwconfig" from the wireless-tools package.
The insmod works, so I restart the computer, but iwconfig doesn't recognize my eth0 device, so I start my network ("/etc/rc.d/init.d/start network" or somthing), and it goes fine untill it tries to start eth0, and fails.
So, I've come to the conclusion that I need to assign this driver to my device in the Mandrake Control Panel, so that "start network" will recognize eth0, but I don't know how to get it to be recognized.
Sorry if this is hard to understand... I'm not good at explaining things.
