Angry madwifi install question for Altheros driver


Hello,

I try to install madwifi latest driver, madwifi-ng-r1552-20060515, on my Fedora 1 LINUX but I fail.
The altheros linux driver is so difficult to install.

When I use "make install" after "make", I suffer that

"(export MODULEPATH=/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.npt1/net/; /sbin/depmod -ae)
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/net/ath_hal.o
depmod: ath_hal_memcpy
depmod: proc_dointvec
depmod: unregister_sysctl_table
depmod: ath_hal_memzero
depmod: register_sysctl_table
......................

Who know what problem happens ?
I have installed sharutils-4.6.2.
Thank you for any help.

Best regards,

I've never used Fedora, but I believe it has SELinux by default (has it?) You should recompile without SELinux IMO. Not sure it has anything to do with your problem but I believe the madwifi driver doesn't do well with SELinux.

IMO is In My Opinion.

SELinux is that :
http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc2/

Anyway, I believe you need a 2.6 kernel.
What about you install a more recent distro (like Fedora Core 5). Would make things easize IMO (In My Opinion).

Regards

It seems that no SELinux in Fedora 1 because no /etc/sysconfig/selinux exists.

So maybe not the problem!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
