Howdy. I have been using a pair of aironet pc4800's for a couple
weeks now on my home network... one in a linux 2.2.12 box, acting
as a firewall/router to the internet, and another in an nt laptop.
I've am VERY happy with it. About a week ago, I bought a Farallon
Skyline 802.11 card for a Mac laptop here, and configured it, and
it is happily playing along with my other two pc4800's, with internet
access via the linux box.
Today I decided to be ambitious.. I built netatalk1.4b2 and installed
it on the linux box to enable wireless mac printing to a printer off
of the linux box. The PC laptop already has this, via LPR. For the mac,
I created a papd printer. If I start atalkd on the internal ethernet (wired)
interface (eth0), and connect the mac to the linux box via
its builtin ethernet port, I can print just fine. However, when I try
to start atalkd on the wireless net interface (eth2), it complains:
eth1: Invalid Argument
Can't configure multicast
and proceeds to use eth0.
ifconfig reports that the wireless interface eth2 is UP, supporting
I know this is going to be an uncommon config, but maybe someone
on this list can help me out. I'm going to try finding a netatalk mailing
list next, but odds are, they won't even have heard of an aironet card.
any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated... even pure speculation
would be helpful at this point.

I am trying to use the new driver (.98) and it seems to not like being
given io's or irq's.
"insmod airo io=any irq=any" results in a nasty Segmentaion Fault an
crashes my machine.
Have these command line options changed?
