Have you downloaded and built the ipw2100 driver and ieee80211 subsystem? Ubuntu (feisty at least) has multiverse packages containing the source (do "apt-cache search ipw2100"). When you get the source there is a README with install instructions.

thanks,

I ran this:
apt-get install ipw2100-source ipw3945-source ipw2200-source
then this:

Code:
make-kpkg --rootcmd=fakeroot --initrd --append-to-version=-$kernelversionn --revision=1.00 kernel_image kernel_headers
make-kpkg --rootcmd=fakeroot --initrd --append-to-version=-$kernelversionn --revision=1.00 modules_image
make-kpkg --rootcmd=fakeroot --initrd --append-to-version=-$kernelversionn --revision=1.00 modules-image
[ "$questionnmakemodulesmakemod" == "y" ] && echo "make modules:" ; make modules
from my script:
http://yellowprotoss.ye.funpic.org/w...owtocompile.sh

thanks for any information

Frenchn00b,

Can you give the entire apt-get output? Those lines look like part of an install script. What happens if you try to modprobe ipw2100 now?

I think I got an error in teh script. thats strange, and I kind of no idea much how good and bad I compile...

here we go:
Code:
# modprobe ipw2100
FATAL: Module ipw2100 not found.

# uname -a
Linux Debianbox 2.6.23.1-kernel14 #1 SMP Sat Oct 13 15:22:40 CEST 2007 i686 GNU/Linux


thanks a lot, I am permanently learning a lot of Linux !
