I would like to know if someone have an ipk with dm9601 module for Angstrom. Or if someone have a howto which explain how to compile a module.
I use an USB/Ethernet dongle with this chipset.

Thnks

Unfortunately, I just reflashed from r198. I have the files, but I assumed that they would not work with Angstrom. From what I've read the kernels are quite different. I could be completely wrong, which is probably true as I do not know much about the Linux kernel and how modules are compiled

No, they won't work on Angstrom (with the normal kernel). You could flash the pdaX kernel with your current Angstrom install (after putting the modules in the correct place), reboot, flash the card, then flash your old kernel back. The kernel should work fine (at least well enough to allow you to flash the card), though I've not tested it with Angstrom.

EDIT: The kernel might be in the wrong format to just flash and have it work with Angstrom (I seem to remember a step when building it that made a 'uboot' kernel). You could try it anyway, though wink.gif

I would rather attempt to learn how to compile the module myself. I really have no idea how to go about doing so. I know I can bitbake hostap-module or something along those lines, but I have no idea what file to change to add prism2 download support and possibly packet injection, assuming that is part of the kernel module. Thanks for the idea though, I tried flashing your kernel after installing r198 and ended up with no wlan0 device. This confused me and I had been itching to try Angstrom anyways.

I've been searching the wiki to no avail. I'm sure it's in there and I'm probably not using the correct search terms, but I have the environment setup, with their instructions anyways. I assumed there would be some file inside the hostap package directory that might lead me in the right direction, but the only thing that I found were a bunch of .bb files that I had no clue how to change to suit my needs. Thanks for all the help and possibly anymore in advance. biggrin.gif
