Missing Dependency: dkms is needed by package madwifi

Does any of that mean anything to you?
Yep! it means you need to install dkms and gcc rpms before installing madwifi.
Try to use yum like this: "yum install dkms gcc".
Probably it will work for gcc but not for dkms. If it installs gcc but not dkms you will have to download dkms separetly try this webpage "rpmfind.net".
also you can figure out if you have one rpm installed by using this command "rpm -qa | grep dkms" (replace dkms for any other rpm you want to search in the installed rpms database).
Where did you get the madwifi rpm in the first place?
I hope this helps.
