this one is for those brave folks who know about the interiors of
linux-wlan-ng setup and how it is handled the upstream way and in the
i'm trying to use a testing system with recent wireless software.
so i use a selfcompiled 126.96.36.199 kernel, compiled the linux-wlan-ng
modules for my kernel from the sources
copied only the *.ko files into /lib/modules/188.8.131.52/linux-wlan-ng and
which contains the needed userland programs and configuration files. so
far no problem.
the problem now arises when i insert my card, pcmcia setup scripts call
each other and finally /etc/wlan/shared complains it can't source
"/etc/wlan/shared.*". from my attempts at installing linux-wlan-ng
completely from upstream source i know that this is the point where
firmware loading happens. an install from upstream source supplies
/etc/wlan/shared.prism2, firmware files(?) and /sbin/prism2dl whereas
the debian packages do not. nevertheless the script included in the
debian package expects to find "/etc/wlan/shared.*", otherwise it bails
so what's wrong here?
i admit to having fiddled quite a bit with various debian packages and
source installs of linux-wlan-ng on my system, but know i really want to
know how this SHOULD work.
thanks for reading so far and maybe helping me
