How to get ath5k working on Jaunty with Compat-wireless and a self-compiled kernel

Posted 05-27-2009 at 02:22 AM by sridhar11

I used to have some trouble while setting up my Atheros PCI card on Ubuntu Linux 9.04. It worked natively on Ubuntu 8.04, where it was detected as ath0. I upgraded from 8.04 to 8.10 whereby I noticed my wireless PCI card didnít work natively anymore. Someone suggested me to upgrade from 8.10 to 9.04 Jaunty, and I did that immediately. After the system upgrade I noticed again that my wireless device was gone in Ubuntu 9.04. When I ran iwconfig I didnít see wlan0 or ath0 anymore.

Posted 05-25-2009 at 02:39 AM by CoderMan

Source code for MinMenu 0.11.0 is available at http://indicium.us/cgi-bin/pages/get?view=minmenu. Binary installers are also available for the i386 and amd64 architectures.

I added a cool new feature to MinMenu that allows the end user to specify any command or program, and to have the standard output of the command or program displayed in the top left corner of the screen. The output displays in a line-by-line ticker style, at the speed specified by the user.

So, I did manage to get lilo into my mbr.
