I downloaded a new buildroot, ran make and loaded it on the gumstix
This got rid of all the other errors and replaced them with the following

After register driver
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
    SET failed on device mwlan0 ; No such device.

I think Dave Hylands helped me with this before but I can't
find it in my notes. Any hints?

What I am trying to do is find the minimum system that will
support WiFi and basic Linux functionality. So if anyone has
experience with this I would appreciate some advice.
