Hey--thanks for the quick response!
Well I got slack 12 installed ok, except wireless support. (I can't tell you how aggrevating it is type this on my wife's powerbook from dubai...)
I followed the directions here:
but I wasn't sure how to do this:
NOTE: As of mac80211-2.0.0 you must also enable CONFIG_CFG80211 and rebuild your main kernel image. This is because the latest mac80211 changes re-implement the kernel built-in from net/core/wireless.c as part of the net/wireless/ sources.
So I did the make menuconfig, etc., it built the kernel, then upon reboot I see only one kernel in Lilo, "Linux". It was there before but its been overwritten, I get a kernel panic "VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,2)"
After make menuconfig, it appeared the kernel config already supported the 80211 stuff, so I exited but it still built the new one.
The fs is ext3.
How do I get a working kernel with my wireless driver?
Thanks in advance
