[RFC/RFS] adm8211-source - driver for ADMtek wifi card
Here's a new candidate for inclusion in Sid: Jouni Malinen and Michael
Wu 's GPL driver for ADMtek's adm8211-based 802.11b wireless cards,
Xterasys Cardbus XN-2411b
Blitz - NetWave Point PC
Linksys WPC11 v1
3com office connect card (3CRSHPW796)
SMC 2602W V2 EU
D-Link DWL-520 Revision C
D-Link DWL-650 rev. L1
That driver was present in all Ubuntu releases, and Michael is aiming
for inclusion in mainstream kernel at some point. But currently, Debian
doesn't offer it.
Candidate package is available at http://web.ncf.ca/jmranger/adm8211/
Package was strongly inspired by Sebastian Ley's job on the ipw2100
package, which doesn't mean I did it all right. After all, it's my
first Debian package.
Tests were made on a Sarge system, with a 184.108.40.206 kernel from
kernel.org. Package is lintian and linda clean (both application are
current Sid versions). I know I'm supposed to test it on a real Sid
system, but I haven't managed to convince myself that
installing/maintaining a Sid machine with 56K internet is a good idea...
So please have a look, and let me know how what you think. I probably
have weaknesses on English (it's not my mother tongue) and dependencies
(I may have missed some). And please put me in CC when replying: I
monitor the list, but I'm not subscribed to it. Thanks !!!
