changing the kernel


I just installed fedora core 2 on an ibm T30 laptop. I am now trying to get the cisco CB21AG working. First i need to add the drivers and I chose to use Madwifi since i belive it will support this card. However, when I run rpm i get the following message:

[root@localhost Desktop]# rpm -i madwifi-module-0.0.20041025-1_2.6.8_1.521.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
kernel = 2.6.8-1.521 is needed by madwifi-module-0.0.20041025-1_2.6.8_1.521

I am running 2.6.5-1.358

1) How do I upgrade to 2.6.8-1.521?
2) Is there an rpm i can run to do this?

You might want to try a site like
Usually it has most of the rpm's that you want. From the looks of things your module is built for the 2.6.8-1.521 kernel only. If you would like, the link directly to the kernel RPM is

Happy hunting!
