    It looks like the Atheros driver is already loading. If you want to install the MadWifi driver from the downloaded source. I strongly recommend using the SVN version via Subversion.

    You also should remove the Ubuntu package that may be supplying the current driver. It may be part of a linux-restricted-modules package.
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.
