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

I really hate to break down and ask, but out of frustration could someone possibly compile the hostap driver with download support for Angstrom 2007-12(?) Akita? Kernel version is 2.6.24. I am so frustrated with this and I'm pulling my hair out with bitbake trying to find how to change the correct files for download support. I can compile packages just fine, but finding the correct file to modify has been a struggle that I cannot seem to overcome at this point. I'm currently running pdaXrom r198 with Capn_Fish's modified kernel and I have no wlan0 interface, or any interface for that matter before or after installing his modified kernel(besides lo). I would like to get back to Angstrom, but this card still having the old firmware is causing quite the trouble. Thanks in advance for any advice or possibly a compiled hostap driver.

I might find time sometime, but my build box is currently buried...

Anyway, it SHOULD be as easy as changing the "akita.defconfig" or "defconfig.akita" (I can't remember which). The file is in the linux-rp-2.6.24 dir, IIRC. All you need to do is open it, find the lines looking like "HOSTAP_FIRMWARE_DOWNLOAD is undefined" and change them to "HOSTAP_FIRMWARE_DOWNLOAD=y". It's pretty obvious, IIRC.

Hope that helps you.

It also occurred to me that you probably don't need to install my whole kernel, just the modules. They worked for me, so I also might try redownloading them.

Hope that helps you.
