How to patch orinoco wireless driver


I have an IBM laptop with Fedora Core 1 installed. My Netgear MA401 card is now working. I am pretty sure the Orinoco_cs drivers are being used. I can surf the web via the wireless link.

I would now like to know how to patch the driver or whatever needs to be done so I can set the card in monitor mode. I'm really not sure what else to put in here, this is really what I want to do.

Thanks

The link you gave me is fantastic. I am still haveing a problem. When I get to this point in the install.

# cd or # cd /root/
# tar -zxf orinoco-0.13e.tar.gz
# patch -p0 < orinoco-0.13e-patch.diff

patching file orinoco-0.13e/hermes.c
patching file orinoco-0.13e/hermes.h
patching file orinoco-0.13e/orinoco.c
patching file orinoco-0.13e/orinoco.h
# cd orinoco-0.13e

# make
# make install

When I perform the make install part of this I get:

[root@localhost orinoco-0.13e]# make install
if [ -d /etc/pcmcia ]; then install -m 644 -o 0 -g 0 hermes.conf /etc/pcmcia/hermes.conf; fi
mkdir -p /lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2129.nptl/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
for f in hermes.o orinoco.o orinoco_cs.o orinoco_plx.o orinoco_tmd.o orinoco_pci.o; do \
if test -e /lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2129.nptl/pcmcia/$f; then \
install -m 644 -o 0 -g 0 $f /lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2129.nptl/pcmcia/$f; \
else \
install -m 644 -o 0 -g 0 $f /lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2129.nptl/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/$f; \
fi; \
done
depmod -a
make: depmod: Command not found
make: *** [install] Error 127

What am I doing wrong???

that is wierd that depmod is not found, it should be installed, try

whereis depmod

should be in /sbin/depmod

also you put the diff file in the driver directory, though i may be lost on this.
