What error message did you get from the Configure
Like you, I have /usr/src/linux symlink'd to the actual source tree. As far as the /etc/init.d/wlan script, I believe it is created when you do a make install
. Concerning bringing up the interface at boot time, I don't normally do this. I gave it try just now by putting these commands in a script called ifup.ma111
modprobe uhci-hcd prism2_usb
wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_ifstate ifstate=enable
As root, I put the ifup.ma111 script into /etc/init.d. Then I created a symlink in /etc/rcn
is your run-level) to /etc/init.d/ifup.ma111. I use run-level 3, so I made a symlink in /etc/rc3.d. The name of your symlink is important -- I named mine S21ma111
. You'll probably see a whole bunch of symlinks that begin with S followed by two digits in your /etc/rcn
.d directory. At boot time, each file is executed in order depending on those two digits. In other words, S10 is executed before S11, S11 before S12, and so on. During boot time, S21ma111
will eventually be executed. Since S21ma111
is a symlink, ifup.ma111 will get executed which should bring up your network interface.
As I re-read this description, I'm not sure if what I wrote makes sense. Let me know how it goes.
I've had problems getting this working with later versions of the kernel. What version of the kernel are you running?
