Hi David & Christian,
I didn't get the driver to work :-(. I have a SIS Mainboard and an AMD64

Well, I haven't got THAT notebook, but what I do have is one of Ralinks
WLAN mini-PCIs (MSI MP54G2). They have a driver for it on

would need to be GPL to be fixed. I haven't even seen the license, but
anyway... I have to hack the driver AND/OR the kernel itself to be
actually be able to use the damn thing.
I have a Cardbus version using a realtech driver (RT2500), and it works
much of the time, but some operations (iwlist scan for one) generate a
segmentation failure somewhere nasty, and you need to reboot after that.
Perhaps we need to collect any patches somewhere accessible, although
it would be far preferable to get it GPL and incorporated into the
Greetings and thanks for that hint.
I found a patch published by a SuSE developer. This may be enough to get
the driver working. Anyway, this is the URL:
I haven't got the time to test it myself yet. Anyway, I'm running Sarge
i386 and 188.8.131.52 works, sort of. I'm running without kernelhack right
now and the card hangs the kernel when I try to scp things from my server.
