Problem installing mad-wifi slackbuild on new kernel


I've just compiled the 2.6.22.1 kernel for slackware 12.0, which fixed the problem with my sound, but I needed to install madwifi again. I followed the guide on the wiki, and it creates the package in /tmp, but it is incomplete and the modules are not being created.

Here is what the logs say:

make-madwifi.log

Searching for symbolic links:

No symbolic links were found, so we won't make an installation script.
You can make your own later in ./install/doinst.sh and rebuild the
package if you like.

This next step is optional - you can set the directories in your package
to some sane permissions. If any of the directories in your package have
special permissions, then DO NOT reset them here!

Would you like to reset all directory permissions to 755 (drwxr-xr-x) and
directory ownerships to root.root ([y]es, [n]o)? n

I have no idea what the problem is. So, now I have a kernel where sound doesn't work and wireless does and another kernel where sound works but wireless doesn't.

For kernel 2.6.22 and newer you can't use madwifi-0.9.3.1.
You will either grab a CVS snapshot or wait for the release of madwifi-0.9.3.2 which does support the newer kernels.
The link mannyslack gave you to my SlackBuild has a working package made from a CVS snapshot.
