Wireless connectivity in FC4 with wlassistant and ndiswrapper

Woosel's picture

I had ndiswrapper working in FC3 under eth0, then I upgraded to FC4 2.6.11-1 1369 and all my interface for the card no longer worked. I am using Netgear WG311T PCI 108MB SuperG Atheros Chip. I uninstalled the ndiswrapper and drivers, but KWifiManager keeps coming up in the startup, and I forgot about the stack 16 problem. I saw this article and want to know if this will work with the config if stk16 kernal is loaded. I have already done the stk16.

source does not compile

Bonjour Marcel

Enjoyed your article but 0.5.2d does not compile. Tried earlier versions and had to go to 0.3.9 to have it compile. Maybe someone can take a look at the cvs tree.

Compilation on FC4

What release are you on? I was able to compile netgo on Fedora Core 4 without incident once I installed qt-devel and opened a new shell window (to pick up the Qt environment variables).

i downloded and ran netgo latest version on my Fedora 3. no problems what so ever. So thank you Marcell.
The only problem i have is analyzing this french stuff u are using.
Man... give me a break. Use English. English is not my native tounge.
So the French is not making it easier.
Long Live the pengiun.

hi all,

SUSE 9.3 will be the victim for this software. We have wifi working (natively of course, you shouldn't be using ndiswrappers) and will report if 9.3 is ok for this. If not, we'll report the fixes here.

Regarding the french language... I know Marcel's background and do understand some of his stuff there but I also find it irritating to have this kind of pieces in between. On the other hand, We shouldn't condemn him -- it's all about free speech.... (and beer ;-)

I like the french. Makes it more interesting. :)

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
