Having added the ATrpm repo to yum I downloaded the MadWifi stuff as instructed but still no sign of the device in the network control widget.
So I try following the guide (for dummies) here....
- svn checkout
- make install
So far, so good :)
Then I need to use modprobe to install it apparently... I thought I just had with the 'make install'? :/
Apparently /sbin/ isn't on the PATH for root by default, so added that to the .bash_profile for root and try again, this time it seems to work.
Following the instructions in the page above I issue a command that is suppose to create a handle for the WiFi card...
[root@yeti madwifi]# wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode sta
For the system to return with 'wlanconfig: ioctl: No such device'. That can't be good :(
