This is my first mail to this mailing list. I believe you enjoy
solving the problems.
Here is my problem hope u help me out.
Im trying to install Hostap ver 0.0.4 on RHL 9.0
1.Avaya pci card
2.Surecom pcmcia card(I dont know how to find out the chipset for this
card? does anyone know how to figure out? Well when i insert this card in
to the RHL9.0 m/c and i do lsmod, it lists orinoco_cs module.
I untar the hostap.gz gile and went thru the README,
Since im using "pcmcia card with pci card" I followed the installation
instructions given for "PCI CARDS BASED ON PRISM2.5 hostap_pci.o" section
from README file.
i edited the KERNEL_PATH to point to /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8
and typed "make pci"
I got the following error.
[root at ROUTERH hostap-0.0.4]# make pci
Makefile:20: /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8//.config: No such file or directory
Makefile:38: WARNING: No kernel PCMCIA support found and PCMCIA_PATH is
Makefile:45: WARNING: Linux wireless extensions, CONFIG_NET_RADIO, not
enabled in the kernel
make: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8//.config'.
Please tell me how to solve the abovce problems.
To get rid of error at line 38, shud i download and compile pcmcia-cs
why is the ".config" file not found in the kernel path OF rhl 9.0 ?
I've seen that file in the system running RHL 8.0.
