All,

I've merged the zydas 1.0.4 driver which is based on
wlan-ng version 0.2.0. It is not fully operational yet:-(
I hope someone can help me out, I have compared debug
logs and code but cannot find the problem (already
fixed a number of them).

I've the following issues:
- I get to the point that I can see with iwconfig wlan0
that the driver is loaded and it shows the default with
1Mb/s and ESSID=WLAN2. When I try my adhoc script that
worked in 1.0.4 (which I've included in
etc/wlan/adhoc.conf), for some reason the wireless
extenstions are gone:-(
- I've tried with and without hotplug, it does not make
much difference.

Weird things:
- the initialization line is different from 1.0.4:
was: hfa384x_cmd_initialize: cmdresp.init:
status=0x8000, resp0=0xcd92, resp1=0x7e08, resp2=0xd336
new: hfa384x_cmd_initialize: cmdresp.init:
status=0x0000, resp0=0x0000, resp1=0xffff, resp2=0xffff

rest of initialization seems to be equal to 1.0.4
(compared with debug=5 for prism2_usb driver) until the
driver is cleamed. Then the 1.0.4 does a ifstate which
my new merged driver does not do:-(

    The complete tar.bz2 seemed to be too big. I've now made a
    patch with:

    diff -r -C 2 linux-wlan-ng-0.2.1-pre20 wlan-ng |bzip2 >
    wlan-ng0.2.1pre20-zdsta.patch.bz2

    linux-wlan-ng-0.2.1-pre20 can be fetched at
    ftp://ftp.linux-wlan.org/pub/linux-wlan-ng/

     
  • patch now done with diff -Naur linux-wlan-ng-0.2.1-pre20 wlan-ng, which should work much smoother

     
  • Updated patch: added some debug statements, fixed some wext stuff, older compiler works again
