Fortunately, FreeBSD's Sam Leffler made those snapshots mentioned in the wiki article. > > Did you try ath5k or kmod-ath5k (comes from 2.6.18-144.el5) ? At this point, I'm still finding MadWifi to be more reliable for CentOS. As mentioned in our correspondence with Alan and company, I'm still getting the core dump on closing wpa_supplicant with that driver. On the other hand, that could just be my rather lowend laptop. There were a couple of other minor error messages I'd noted as well, which I haven't yet sent to Alan, as I've had very little time. (I am not sure this is a discussion for the document list, but as it does concern a wiki article on that card and a few laptops that use it, I'm just bringing it up.) I would suggest that you try the kmod though, and report back--whether good or bad. And Alan, I will try to get you these other (seemingly minor, as they didn't affect the card working) errors by tomorrow. > > > > I have a page on the CentOS forums for this, no answers there in days, > > still 0 posts as of last night. > > The chances of anyone having the same laptop in the CentOS community > coming across your post are rather slim. One important thing when mentioning laptop hardware on any forum--(as a Fedora Forum Mod, I'm constantly telling people this and editing their thread titles) is that as laptop manufacturers are notorious for changing hardware without notice, it's always best to use a thread title like Wireless card <model> doesn't work, rather than something like <laptop model> wireless doesn't work. Especially on CentOS fora, where there are many overworked sysadmins, busy people will tend to simply not even look at a post like that (with the model). > -- Scott Robbins PGP keyID EB3467D6 ( 1B48 077D 66F6 9DB0 FDC2 A409 FA54 EB34 67D6 ) gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys EB3467D6 Xander: The band, yeah.
