Hello,

after upgrading my hostap-box to a new kernel (gentoo, linux-2.6.10-rc1-
mm1, wich is linux-2.6.10-rc1 with the mm-patchset), i have some
problems with the hostap-driver kernel module.

First, i tried to re-emerge hostap-driver, with the following error:

I have got the same error when compiling the source (stable and devel).
Are there any changes in the kernel sources which don't work with the
hostap-driver?

Because i don't need the hostap_pci module, i just commented out some
lines and tried again. Got some warnings about `MODULE_PARM_' again but
have the needed kernel modules now. 

When I modprobe hostap_plx another error occured (doesn't matter which
version):

FATAL: Error inserting hostap_plx (/lib/modules/2.6.10-rc1-
mm1/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/hostap_plx.ko): No such device

dmesg says:

I really don't know what to do. Maybe somebody can help me?


Thanks.
