Sorry to put you through so many steps, but try this.

I recommend compiling from source since all of the Redhat and FC packages are all compiled against different kernel versions.

This way, we will know for sure that you are getting a setup that is made specifically for your setup.

Go here:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ckage_id=85233

Get:
madwifi-0.9.2.tar.gz

Unpack the tar.gz
Code:
tar -xvvzf madwifi-0.9.2.tar.gz
Change directory into the new madwifi folder and run:
Code:
./configure
make
make install

Ignore the previous reply then.

This what we are going to do.

Go to:
http://atrpms.net/dist/el4/madwifi/

Get:
madwifi-kmdl-2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp-0.9.2-27.el4.at.i686.rpm
madwifi-0.9.2-27.el4.at.i386.rpm

And install them in the order listed above.

./configure command

[root@shoaibahmed madwifi-0.9.2]# make install

Purpose:
Locate all madwifi-related kernel modules for a given kernel
(including all its subdirectories).

Usage:
scripts/find-madwifi-modules.sh <kernelrelease> [destdir]

<kernelrelease>: the kernel release that madwifi has been compiled for
[destdir]: destination directory for the compiled madwifi modules (optional)

Don't worry about compiling for now. I sincerely apologize for the confusion. Try the last suggestion.

Ok... get:
madwifi-hal-kmdl-2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp-0.9.2-27.el4.at.i686.rpm

From:
http://atrpms.net/dist/el4/madwifi/

Basically each package relies on what is installed before it, so the rpm command is telling you that it needs: madwifi-hal-kmdl-2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp which is contained in the above rpm name. Keep getting the necessary dependencies until you get no errors.

Don't use the hugemem package.... you do not have that kernel.

You want this one.

Ok. Go through and install each of these files using the command:

Code:
rpm -i --nodeps name-of-package.rpm
This will force the packages to be installed, as long as you have all three installed, you should be ok to install the modules and run configuration.

That means you have an old version of madwifi already installed, version 0.9.0-1.2... you can try to configure the old version but if not, you will need to uninstall the old version before installing 0.9.2-27.

Code:
man rpm
Check the rpm manual entry for usage on how to uninstall if you decide to do that. If you want to try to configure the old version first, check the documentation at http://www.madwifi.org/.
