I've just flashed my Zaurus C860 to the beta4 of pdaXrom and I'm very impressed so far. I'd like to start installing extra packages etc. but I can't get my Planex CF11H wifi card going. Here's what I've done so far.

1) I've downloaded the latest prism2 firmware from proski's site. According to Jun's mini-HOWTO and the IDtable, I need pk010101.hex and sf010804.hex from that zip file. I've copied these into /etc/pcmcia/firmware.
2) I've updated /etc/pcmcia/hostap_fw to reflect the new firmware filenames
3) I tried proski's "linux based prism2_srec flashing steps" but I get stuck because it complains with the error:

Odd.. Download request for the kernel driver failed.

I know this means that either my hostap.0 should be recompiled with the PRISM2_DOWNLOAD_SUPPORT and/or PRISM2_NON_VOLATILE_DOWNLOAD must be defined somewhere (probably this means a prism2_srec recompile).

Now, I don't have access to the internet from my PDA so I can't just download sources and make it all. I tried to trick my package manager into believing my /mnt/card/feed is a local feed, but it complains about the structure of the Package file I downloaded from distro.ibiblio.org. I tried downloading Package both in binary as well as in auto mode.

Anyway, what I think I need now is a new prism2_srec and possibly a new hostap kernel module that will allow me to flash the new firmware to my CF11H card. Can anybody provide me with these ? Or are they standard in another build, say, the 1.1.0r197, so I could just reflash and get it working ?

Any other tips would be very welcome !
