Has anyone managed to get hostap working without rebuilding their kernel
(using the installed kernel that came with their distro)? I usually rebuild
my kernel but on my laptop this takes forever (slow system) and Mandrake 9.0
seems to all too often totally wreck the kernel during the rebuild.
I have tried to get hostap working on my MDK 9.0 system (kernel-2.4.19-16mdk)
for days without success. I am stuck using yenta_socket for one thing (which
has never worked properly for me with ANY pcmcia device) and when I
build/install the hostap driver, all I get are timeouts, resets, ad infinitum
in my syslog. It worked without problem in Mandrake 8.2 with kernel-2.4.18.
Has ANYONE gotten it working with Mandrake 9.0, default kernel and
