How to Install Firmware in Slackware 12.1 IBM Thinkpad T30 (Cisco MPI350)
I have a dual-boot computer (Elive and Slackware) and wireless works in Elive but not Slackware. This website Cisco Aironet Wireless 802.11b - ThinkWiki says the firmware information for the driver is in /proc/driver/aironet/eth(x)/Status. This file exists in Elive, the version is 5.02.19. However, there are not even any subdirectories in /proc in Slackware. Is the driver/firmware information in another directory in Slackware? If not how would I go about installing the newest version that I downloaded from the Cisco website. I unzipped the .exe and got a 50C56021.IMG file. Should I put this file somewhere to install it? If so, where? Do I need to have subdirectories in /proc for the wireless card to work? Will they be made automatically after installing the firmware, or will I have to make them myself?
