Re-compiling madwifi drivers

Post by claudio » Mon Oct 17, 2011 2:58 pm

Dear all,
what if I need to install a new version of the madwifi driver?
I need to modify the drivers for my research and I will like to include the modified version in the MeshLium
Is that possible? I can just do as I do on my Ubuntu?
thanks

Claudio

Dear claudio, you can recompile the drivers in meshlium or just copy by scp (secure copy, copy over ssh) from your computer to meshlium if you computer is x86 compatible.

Please write again if you need more help.

Thank you for your prompt answer.
Hust another small question: I would be possible to change the madwifi driver with ath5k? Have someone tried this? Is it working?

Dear claudio, yes will be possible change the madwifi driver to ath5k, but we don't know if it works properly and this change should be done at your own risk.
