Thanks for the tips on using /etc/portage/package.keywords, Jakob! I
emerged the latest hostap-driver and hostap-utils. The hostap-driver
README says that "Host AP driver creates multiple network devices",
mentioning wifi0 and wlan0; however, doing ifconfig after emerging
hostap-driver does not show me a wlan0 or wifi0 device.
Here's the hardware I'm using:
I'm also wondering whether I should be using the hostap or the
hostap_plx driver. I *think* based on the hostap-driver README that
because I'm using a PCMCIA->PCI adaptor, I should be using the
hostap_plx driver -- but I can't figure out how to do that.
