Hello, I have a X-micro USB wlan adapter and Mandrake 10 using kernel 2.4.25. I installed the RPM version of the linux-wlan-ng driver (included with installation disc 4) and patched the usbcore.o file. However, when I entered
wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_ifstate ifstate=enable
I got the following error:
wlanctl-ng: No such device
Can anybody help me to make my wlan adapter work?
Thanks a lot,

Try installing the hotplug rpm.
Also install the usbtools rpm.
When the hotplug rpm will be installed, unplug and re-plug your usb wifi adapter, and see what happens by means of dmesg or "tail -50f /var/log/syslog".
I already had the hotplug and usbutil installed. Here is the output of dmesg when I unplugged and replugged the adapter.
