    I have the same chipset and I also use madwifi from source code.
    I can probably help you get it working, if you can tell me how far you have gotten. Have you extracted the madwifi drivers and tried the make command?
    Any errors?

    What file did you download?
    madwifi-0.9.2.tar.gz?
    save it to your home directory or create a new folder as root
    Code:
    mkdir /wireless
    then change to that directory
    Code:
    cd /wireless
    uncompress the files
    Code:
    tar -zxvf madwifi-0.9.2.tar.gz
    that should create a directory named madwifi-0.9.2
    change to that directory
    Code:
    cd madwifi-0.9.2
    read the INSTALL file
    Code:
    gedit INSTALL &
    start the build by typing
    Code:
    make
    If everything goes well you need to type
    Code:
    make install
    IF that goes well, type
    Code:
    modprobe ath_pci
    If no errors then type
    Code:
    system-config-network &
    Then create a new wireless connection and enter all your settings, it shuld be ready to go.

    Hi Jos,

    You need to create a symlink from "build" in /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 that points back to your kernel source in /usr/src/kernels. So you would do something like...
    Code:
    ln -s /usr/src/kernels/linux-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5/build
    ...or whatever the actual name of the kernel source is.

    Sorry for bumping an old thread. I have the exact same card as this guy, and the exact same problem. I'm running FC6.

    I followed the instructions on this page:
    http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/B...t=%28kernel%29
    to create a link.
    HTML Code:
    su -c 'ln -s /usr/src/kernels/<version>.<release>-<arch> /usr/src/linux'
    I then used your link:
    HTML Code:
    ln -s /usr/src/kernels/linux-2.6.18-x.xxxx.fc6xen /lib/modules/2.6.18-x.xxxx.fc6xen/build
    but it's giving me an error when I run the MAKE command.
    HTML Code:
    /bin/sh:line 0: cd: /lib/modules/2.6.18-x.xxxx.fc6xen/build: No such file or directory
    makefile.inc:89: *** /lib/modules/2.6.18-x.xxxx.fc6xen/build is missing, please set KERNELPATH. Stop.
    even though
    HTML Code:
    cd /lib/modules/2.6.18-x.xxxx.fc6xen/build
    works. Any ideas?

    Cheers,
    Nish

    Are you sure you have kernel-devel installed?

    Useful information for about Fedora core. It was so beneficial for me.
