Hey everyone. I'm trying to get my D-Link DWL-G520 B1
card working but I keep
running into the dreaded "Hal 13" message. I was under
the impression that this
card was supported by the madwifi driver. Is it
supported? If not, are there
plans to support it in the future?
credo quia absurdum est
P.S. Here's another post
I put on http://www.linuxquestions.org for the same
Preamble: I'm running Debian 3.0 with a custom 2.4.24
kernel. I got the cvs
version of madwifi from a few days back.
I'm trying to get my D-Link AirPlus XtremeG DWL-G520
network card working on my
computer. I'm pretty sure this is possible because
I've read other posts about
people who've done it, like ack_ in "Trying to setup
DWL-G520 -> Problems with
ath_pci.o." In fact, I'm using almost the exact same
system configurations as
lspci shows my ethernet card like this:
00:0f.0 Ethernet controller: Unknown device 168c.0013
Subsystem: D-Link System Inc: Unknown device 3a13
Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 11
Memory at d7000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)
Capabilities: <available only to root>
I load in wlan and ath_hal (from madwifi) fine using
ath_hal: 0.9.5.3 BETA (Sam Leffler <sam@...> )
ath_hal also gives me a fun message about how it will
taint my kernel because
it's proprietary software :-).
The problem happens when I try to modprob ath_pci.
ath_pci: 0.8.5.1 BETA
PCI: Found IRQ 11 for device 00.0f.0
PCI: Sharing IRQ 11 with 00.07.5
ath%d: unable to attach hardware; HAL status 13
ath_pci: No devices found, driver not installed.
/lib/modules/2.4.24/net/ath_pci.o: init_module: No
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module
invalid IO or IRQ parameters
/lib/modules/2.4.24/net/ath_pci.o: insmod ath_pci
I no idea what's causing this problem. If you have any
solutions or hints please
reply before I dash my brains upon the rocks. Thanks
