I have been trying to find a way to get my new Marvel wifi card working. I poked around and found out that this libertas kernel module is supposed to support it. But that module is not available with the "stock" titchy kernel.

So, someone who has switched to the 2.6.22 kernel, could you please check to see whether or not you have this module, or maybe download it (there is a debian version for 2.6.22-2) and see whether or not you can at least load the module.

If so, then I would need to know how to install said kernel. I seem to recall there is an updater.sh we can use; it may be just the Angstrom one, but a little guidance would be nice.

Of course, if someone who has this kernel actually also has this wifi card, and can test that out, that would be even better, but I don't imagine I'd be that lucky.

The card I actually have is a Sparklan WCFM-100 card, with the marvell 8385 chip.

I actually contacted them to see about drivers; but they only have source for 2.4 drivers, and no clue about 2.6 kernels, much less arm machines.

I've build a new 2.6.23 kernel, and it includes the libertas module.
Untested, so see for yourself if it works!

I just saw this in mid-install of your "old" version. I ran into trouble there with packages.gz being corrupt, and it did not want to fix itself, so I grabbed this kernel and re-flashed. It seems to be working, but I am in mid-install. We shall see. I don't know whether this packages.gz problem is a problem with the gnuab site, or what. For now I am using the old wifi card, since it works (orinoco driver).

Is there another site I should be using, since I am in the US? Well, I'll see for now how this works. I get to re-partition the disk, again, now.

Thanks for this build just for me....
