Hi,

I have been trying to load latest firmware (1.1.1 and 1.5.6) 
onto my WMP11 using the instructions from 

http://lists.shmoo.com/pipermail/hostap/2002-November/000295.html

on a Slack8.1 box, based on driver update file from Intersil 
website:

ISL3PRDSUIT-EXE_WIN_(2-0-9).zip

I have the 2002-10-12 release of hostap, and made the change 
to add PRISM2_DOWNLOAD_SUPPORT.

Here's my card's current info:

bash-2.05a# dmesg | grep ident
ident: nic h/w: id=0x8013 1.0.0
ident: pri f/w: id=0x15 1.0.7
ident: sta f/w: id=0x1f 1.3.5

but I encounter this error for the primary firmware:

In examining the image-2.hex and image-5.hex files, it does 
look like lines 29 and 10 are different somehow (S317 vs 
S311) and perhaps not being parsed correctly.  Here's the 
first parts of the two image files:

Is there something else I should/could be doing?

I had to modify split_combined_hex script due to "-d option 
for mktemp not supported under linux", hence my directory 
name has no random numbers.

Thanks for any help.
