Hi,

I'm trying to make hostap work on an ADI Engineering Coyote IXP425
development board, with a Gemtek WL350F Prism2.5 MiniPCI card.

Kernel is 2.4.19-rmk7-ds2 with patches based on the last few days
discussion on arm-linux-kernel.

The current CVS and hostap-0.0.3 do exactly the same thing:

# modprobe hostap_crypt
Using /lib/modules/2.4.19-rmk7-ds1/net/hostap_crypt.o
# modprobe hostap_crypt_wep
Using /lib/modules/2.4.19-rmk7-ds1/net/hostap_crypt_wep.o
# modprobe hostap
Using /lib/modules/2.4.19-rmk7-ds1/net/hostap.o
# modprobe hostap_pci
Using /lib/modules/2.4.19-rmk7-ds1/net/hostap_pci.o
hostap_pci: CVS (Jouni Malinen <jkmaline at cc.hut.fi>)
hostap_pci: Registered netdevice wlan0
wlan0: could not get own MAC address
wlan0: Channel list read failed
wlan0: Intersil Prism2.5 PCI: mem=0x4bdff000, irq=28

and I get the following in /var/log/messages:

What's going on here?
