    If you have Livna enabled as a 3rd party repo you can:
    Code:
    # yum install madwifi madwifi-devel

    Sorry for delay, is it possible that you have the i586 kernel installed when you should have i686 kernel? You can check by:
    Code:
     yum list installed kernel
    and also get a list of installed and available kernels by:
    Code:
     yum list | grep kernel
    and there should not be the i586 listed as installed. If that is the problem there is a fix but check your kernel version first.

    The problem with the i586 kernel would be that you cannot install your kernel module from the repo as it is built with i686 kernel.

    Go to this link and you will read and follow the instructions there to get the proper kernel installed. Kernel
