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. :)

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
