madwifi errors


Hi, i've been having some trouble setting up madwifi on mandrake 10.1 community. I have a planet Wl-8310 wireless card.

i'm pretty sure i have the make file setup correctly, once i ran it heres what happened. i'm just going to put the errors since i'm typing this all out

if_ath.c: In function 'ath_beacon_tasklist':
if_atg.c:1070:warning: implicit declaration of function 'pci_dma_sync_single'

well, i may have configured the make file wrong, i type the lines that i edited in and maybe u can tell

ok, and just so u know my kernel is named 2.6.10-22murph

DESTDIR=/lib/modules/2.6.10-22murph/kernel
TOOLPREFIX=/lib/modules/2.6.10-22murph/kernel
KERNEL_PATH= /usr/src/linux-2.6.10/kernel
MODULE_PATH=/lib/modules/2.6.10-22murph/kernel/net


i probably have the wrong directories so if someone could just tell me what should be in each directory i would be greatful

ok, i have it installed now,

i'm just not sure how to configure it, could someone show me? or link some instructions.
i've tried to add a wireless network connection in mandrake control center but something just flashes quickly and dissapears and i'm back to the option load manual driver. it's like it doesn't want to add that or it's not recognizing the device.

although it is recognizing it in hardware. two appear under ethernetcard RTL-8139 and AR5213 802.11g Wireless adapter (the one i'm trying to get to work) i have tried everything with rtl-8139 it configured it upon install but it does not run.

so i'm pretty sure it's the other that has the problem. o yea and i'm running this on a desktop, not a laptop.


this is probably a result of missing a step, but when i try to configure the module it says Paramaters none. that can't be right can it?

ok, i did notice that modpost command was trying to be used, but i don't believe my os has it.

I think you should try:
KERNEL_PATH= /usr/src/linux-2.6.10

i have tried that. same errors, anyways, the current madwifi that i downloaded automatically found the source

heres a little more info

ok, i did the make
first, like before, it looks like it completes, but a few times while it's running it says MODPOST, then theres an error
Warning and then it says something about ath_hal_xxx ............................../ath_hal/ath_hal.ko undefined
(thats not the whole error but i don't really feel like typing out the whole thing
then i do make install
has the same warnings and modpost, which i don't know if thats a command but i tried running modpost and it didn't work

and when i run modprobe ath_pci and it says
WARNING: Error inserting ath_hal .......unknown symbol in module or unknown paramater (see dmesg)
FATAL: Error inserting ath_pci .......unknown symbol in module or unknown paramater (see dmesg)
so that can't be good

ok, and i have 2.6.10 kernel installed, i checked the madwifi site and it says their current version supports it so that shouldn't be a problem, the source is installed on the computer and i'm pretty sure that the make file finds the source automatically since during the make it says entering directory /usr/src/linux-2.6.10
