Hello - trying to install hostap and I'm running into a bit of a problem.
My existing setup is a laptop running RH 7.3 with 2.4.18-4, with which I
successfuly run kismet, airsnort, and wellenreiter. Saw fakeap, which uses
hostap, and thought I'd give it a whirl.
I'm using a DWL-650, which by what I could find in the list archives, will
work. I have that NIC configured and working as eth1.
My problem arises when I try to compile hostap. I have kernel tree pcmcia
support, so all I should have to do is make sure I have the correct path
in my makefile (/usr/src/linux) and away I go. However, out of the box, the
compile fails at line 43 which is an include for $KERNEL_PATH/.config - I do
not have this file. Just for grins, I created a .config file there and make
appeared to work (make pccard that is). However, when I did a make_pccard
install, it bailed telling me I had unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18
-4/net/hostap.o and some other files.
Can someone please point me in the right direction?
