I'm trying to compile my own kernel for Fedora 7 - which is going very well. Speed increases etc, but whenever I do I loose my wireless.
I've traced it back to both the stock kernel and also the src.rpm kernel from Fedora (!) is missing this module, so I'm having to go get it and build it.
My main question is this: do I need to grab it from anywhere special?
The main site (ipw3945.sourceforge.net) requires a daemon - which I don't like the idea of - not to mention a quick browse of google says the iwl module is using the new wireless stack in the kernel, making the daemon unnecessary.
Sorry if this seems trivial, but I'm just starting to play around with the kernel, and would like any tips in that area too.. Is there a collected fedora module set about?
Do I need to make any special settings for Fedora?
Is it wise for me to jump ahead and use the 126.96.36.199 - rather then sticking to the older 2.6.21 (I think I remember hearing Redhat back-port improvements, not sure if that's done in Fedora too)?
Thanks for your time.
