madwifi + fedoraCore4 + Atheros driver = internet connection?


Hi

I just installed Fedora Core 4 on a LinuxCertified workstation. Somehow the connection to the internet hasn't happened yet. It seems the upgrade wiped out the driver for the Airlink101 32-bit Wireless Cardbus adaptor AWLC4030 that I was using. Looking at a list (http://www.atrpms.net/dist/fc4/madwifi/) of device drivers I selected the following:

Oct 03 14:24:34 CEST 2005
madwifi-0.9.6.0-18.rhfc4.at.i386.rpm - A linux device driver for Atheros chipsets (ar5210, ar5211, ar5212).
http://sourceforge.net/projects/madwifi/

How would I go about installing this driver when I don't have internet access to my Linux system? (I'm currently typing this from my Windows partition.) I've completed a ticket asking the madwifi folks about obtaining the driver on disk, but I don't even know how well monitored their site is and when or if I'll get a reply.

If anyone can suggest anything that would be a solution to me getting Linux back online, I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks much,

Tj

Hi

What is your response saying? Please repeat in 'long hand'.
Also, supposed I did not have a Windows partition, how would I connect to the internet?

Thanks

Opera update/install command

Hi

I'm downloading the information via LAN connection instead of wireless. I guess I'll get the wireless working later.

I figure I might as well get the newest Opera. I'm trying to install with the command '-F' as in

rpm -F opera-8.52-20060201.6-shared-qt.i386-en.rpm,

but getting a command 'Could not find icon installation directory, icons not installed'. I haven't used 'i' install because I don't want duplicate packages, I want to update the old with the new. How do I get on the right track from here?

Much thanks,
Tj

System: Fedora Core 4;
Browser: Opera
