Having problems with atheros wifi network controller


Hello all, i just installed opensuse 10.3 on my toshiba satellite laptop (l305-s59071). The problem i'm having presently is that my network manager does not detect the wifi card. I'm also having problems with my video card. I can't get true color mode on my display. Can someone pls help?

Funny coincidence... I just built a DKMS rpm for the Atheros driver, do you have any aversion to installing DKMS ?

PM me an email address so I can send the rpm to you, you'll need to install dkms first or simultaneously:

cheers,
