madwifi driver won;t build with slackware64 13.1
 
I have a D-Link DWL-G630 wireless card that used to work when I was running slackware64 13.0. I did a clean install of 13.1 and the madwifi tools builds no problem but the madwifi driver has errors and fails to compete. My wireless card had the AR2413 chipset.

madwifi has been phased out since Slackware 12 and most Atheros chipsets are now supported by an in-kernel driver called ath5k

Code:

root@nitrogen:/home/jan/tmp# lsmod | sort
Module                  Size  Used by
ac                      8196  0
agpgart                32584  2 drm,ati_agp
ath5k                101248  0
ati_agp                10764  0
battery                14340  0

Works great for me in this 12.2 Slack running on an Acer E-machine.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Still have a few minor issues to work out but at least now I can connect.
