    Hi,

    Ive problems with Atheros card wireless installation. My linux kernel is 2.6.18 and I have livna & freshrpms repositories configurated.

    Error dependencies with madwifi-kmod-common

    i see with yum extender that i have not installed the kmod-madwifi module and there is 3 modules 0.92.-2.2.6.18-1.2239.fc5 for the linux kernel 2.6.18
    kmod-madwifi-kdump
    kmod-madwifi-smp
    kmod-madwifi.xen0

    what kernel module must i do installed ?

    I had this same problem awhile back when I installed FC6. Which kernel do you have installed?
    uname -r
    If it's a 586 kernel, you'll need to change it to a 686. This is a known bug with FC6.
    http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bugs/FC6Common scroll down to "Common Issues"
    I actually ended up swapping kernels, then compiling madwifi from source because I couldn't get yum to sort the dependencies.

    THE ERROR IS THE SAME WITH THE KMOD-MADWIFI-KDUMP MODULE

    try disabling some repos, because you could be mixing madwifi from more than one repo.
    yum --disablerepo=dag --disablerepo=freshrpms install madwifi

    Question Same Problem

    I have just installed core 6 x86_64, and i'm trying to install kmod-madwifi-0.9.2.1-1.2.6.18_1.2869.fc6.x86_64.rpm, buy doing the following command.
    yum install madwifi kmod-madwifi-0.9.2.1-1.2.6.18_1.2869.fc6.x86_64.rpm
    However i then get the following output;
    Loading "installonlyn" plugin
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up repositories
    Reading repository metadata in from local files
    Parsing package install arguments
    No Match for argument: madwifi

    Does anyone have any ideas as to how to get around the above?

    I have tried downloading different .rpm files but all seem to have the same issue..

    Help!!!

    This is a wild guess, but are you using third party repos like, DAG, ATRPMS, or Freshrpms?
    post the output of this command to check
    ls /etc/yum.repos.d

    Tried that

    Sorry it's been a while, i have run the ls and it would appear not, see results below;

    [scott@localhost ~]$ ls /etc/yum.repos.d/
    fedora-core.repo fedora-legacy.repo
    fedora-development.repo fedora-updates.repo
    fedora-extras-development.repo fedora-updates-testing.repo
    fedora-extras.repo
    [scott@localhost ~]$

    I am also getting a depend error when i run the standard fedora updates, any ideas?

    Which version of Fedora are you using?
    You need to install the livna repo, see here
