Linux adventure

I am somewhat of a novice at the family of operating systems, but I'm getting there. You know you haven't too far to go when even other experienced users ask you for help. I feel fairly accomplished, having installed over a dozen distinct versions of Gnu-Linux, and was able to do everything I used to do in Windoze. This is a good thing.

OK, my mistake. The site is the old obsolete one; I read all about their hosting issues before, when I was looking for ndiswrapper alternatives.

Not getting anywhere with MadWifi

Posted 01-23-2009 at 10:00 PM by ctroyer

Went to to look for the wiki. Couldn't find it, but did find lots of hints that the sourceforge version of the code is obsolete. So I went to a mirror site for the 'latest' snapshot. That file was madwifi-20060331. Sounds older than madwifi-0.9.4, but what the heck. Tried compiling it, but just got...

The next step is to set the CATALINA_HOME as an environmente variable for /usr/local/tomcat. I opened the /etc/profile file with vi and added the following line:
