The AmbiCom WL54-PCI and WL54-PC have TI chipsets, but the WL54-CF has a Marvell chipset.

A Linux driver for Marvell devices has just been developed - http://www.saillard.org/linux/mrv8k/files/
but it is only for 2.6 kernels.


So it probably can be added into OpenEmbedded but who will test it...

I am afraid I am not up to speed on OpenEmbedded, can you provide a "Readers Digest"
summary of what it is all about and who might be qualified to test it?

I have a SL-5500 with what appears to be a defective CF slot and a fully functional
C1000. Are either of them suitable test platforms?

OpenEmbedded is buildsystem used to build OpenZaurus, Familiar and few other Linux distibutions (not only for PDA). So when something is added into it then all distros can use it. We have drivers for other CF 802.11g cards and getting this one to build is possible.

But getting it build is one thing, get it tested is other thing.

I just tried to build it and discovered that it firstly need to port to ARM as now it's i386/x64_64 only sad.gif So sorry - nothing to test.

Perhaps you could sell the driver?

Or those who want it could make donations toward your time and talent?

Is there another equally low priced "g" card that already works or for which you
are developing a driver, please?

Thanks! doc

I will try to port the driver over the weekend! The card would really rock! Worth the effort....

Edit: Could not make it this week, will try my best during the week...

socket communications has announced a 54g CF coming in february for $99 that they claim (according to press release) works with Linux.

I emailed their sales department and got this response:

Would you please E-mail her back and ask for some details re. the Linux
compatibility?

Will it require ndiswrapper and the WinXP drivers?

What is the chipset?

Which version of Linux 2.4xx? 2.6xx?

With which Linux distro have they tested it?

What dependencies?

Thanks! doc

Thank you for contacting Socket Communications,

The P500 card will be availlable by the end of March.

Thank You,

The press release says that it is Linux compatible. I'm assuming that includes the zaurus. I have their bluetooth card and it works great.

Globolus, there's renewed interest in the Ambicom WL54-CF. Did you ever get a chance to work with the driver?
