Help Me IPW2100 install on Fedora 3 Kernel 2.6.15.6


I have followed the install.txt version 1.2. It suggested that my Kernel should be 2.6.13+. In this regard I upgraded my kernel from 2.6.9-1.667 to 2.6.15.6.

root@localhost ipw2100-1.2.0]# modprobe ipw2100
FATAL: Error inserting ipw2100 (/lib/modules/2.6.15.6/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2100.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
[root@localhost ipw2100-1.2.0]#

The dmesg output I believe is usefull is posted below

I am also posting the kudzu -p input I believe is useful below

I have also ran the following debug program

[root@localhost ipw2100-1.2.0]# ./load debug=0x43fff
No modules unloaded.
FATAL: Module ieee80211_crypt not found.
FATAL: Module ieee80211_crypt_wep not found.
FATAL: Module ieee80211_crypt_tkip not found.

FATAL: Module ieee80211 not found.
insmod: error inserting './ipw2100.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module
No modules loaded.
[root@localhost ipw2100-1.2.0]#


It appears like the certain ieee80211 files are not found. This may be so as I don't believe make put them in the right directory.

I have untarred the ieee80211 tarball

tar xzvf ieee80211-1.0.1.tgz

The cp the directory to /lib/modules/iee802111... and ran 'make' from there. Should I be putting this directory somewhere else?

I have followed the instructions posted below. It doesn't specify

INSTALLING THE BITS

The installation requires the compiled kernel sources or headers
against the matching kernel. These are typically found in:

/lib/modules/\`uname -r\`/build

If that directory does not exist, or is empty, you likely need to
install the kernel source packages for your distribution. Once you have
the kernel sources, you can make and install the ieee80211 subsystem
via:

% tar zxvf ieee80211-${VERSION}
% cd ieee80211-${VERSION}
% make

In order to build drivers dependent on this subsystem, those drivers may
need to find the ieee80211 header files. You can specify a location for
those include files to be installed via the IEEE80211_INC parameter to
make:

% make IEEE80211_INC=/usr/include

which will install the ieee80211.h headers into /usr/include/net

If you do not specify a location, the Makefile will default to
installing into:

/lib/modules/\`uname -r\`/include

(placing the files into the net subdirectory of the above path)

I have looked for the header files but can't find them. I really don't know what else to do. Is there a systematic way to troubleshooting this? I'm sorry for the post but I'm fairly new to this. Thanks

Ok It seems like I didn't make install the ieee80211 stack. The instructions didn't state that clearly so I left it out. so now modprobe ipw2100 gives no errors however, the wireless card still does not work. I'm posting the following as clues. Any help will be appreciate

Code:
rmmod ipw2100
modprobe -v ipw2100
tail /var/log/message
should give you more info

by the way, why are you doing this? The one in the kernel doesn't please you?
firmware error?
or you want monitor?
