IPW2100 on Slackware 10.1


Hi all,
I'm using slackware 10.1 with kernel 2.4.29, and have a problem getting IPW2100 software to work. I finished the compilation and installation and everything went fine, but when I get to the part of loading the driver, I'm not sure what to do. All I found in the INSTALL file was:
Code:
LOADING THE DRIVER
------------ -----   -----       ----       ---       --         -     

You need to configure the device for your particular distribution.  The steps
below will work on Red Hat, Fedora, and other similar distributions.  

First, create a file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ called ifcfg-eth1 
(or eth2, etc. as appropriate).  Place the following within it:

DEVICE=eth1
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
TYPE=Wireless

% modprobe ipw2100
% ifup eth1
The /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ directory doesn't exist on my Slackware... should I create it or use a different one?
What will be the name of the device, wlan0? eth1?

I'll be thankful is someone will be able to help me.

There are some settings in /etc/rc.d/rc.wireless.conf. The device name should be wlan0. When I set up my wireless adapter, I had to add the following lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

/etc/rc.d/rc.wireless wlan0
/sbin/dhcpcd wlan0

You may also have to add "/sbin/modprobe ipw2100" to /etc/rc.d/rc.modules, so that that module is loaded on boot.

HTH a bit.

10X for helping...

I added all the lines, saved the files and rebooted. On startup I get some error message about wrong interface wlan0... what can it be? How can I make sure the installation went all right?

btw, when I run IWCONFIG with no extra parameters, I get:

lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
ppp0 no wireless extensions.

Edit: heh, it doesn't look like your wireless card has been detected :/. Did "modprobe ipw2100" do anything?

This is what I get...
Code:
bash-3.00# modprobe ipw2100
/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2100/ipw2100.o: init_module:No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2100/ipw2100.o: Hint: insmoderrors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
      You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2100/ipw2100.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2100/ipw2100.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2100/ipw2100.o: insmod ipw2100 failed
Thanks again

That's where the problem is, then . What does "dmesg" show?

Eek, I should've said to do "dmesg | grep ipw2100", but never mind. It would seem that your wireless adapter is eth1 and not wlan0. Strange.

As far as the modprobe command not working, I don't know . You need to get that working before anything else, I think.

The error is complaining about not finding the firmware for the card. Have you copied the proper firmware to the location the module is expecting to find it?

Emmm... I don't really know... how can I check it? If not, what is "firmware" and how to copy it?

btw: do I need to use this firmware thing if I am installing IPW2100 externally?

Thanks, but I am using the 2.4.29 kernel... Last time I tried to upgrade the kernel something went wrong and I had to format the partition... Maybe someone knows about a good tatorial for newbies like me, that will help me upgrade my kernel?

Slackware 10.1 is already 2.6 ready. Install the kernel from the testing directory.
