I inserted my prism2 card and did modprobe hostap and modprobe hostap_cs, and voila, wlan0 and wifi0 interfaces appeared

I have set up /etc/network/interfaces but ifconfig wlan0 up doesn't result in anything and the iwconfig command is missing


Meanwhile I can't figure out how to install more packages, I have usb networking up so I have been able to wget. I can't ssh or scp though. Not sure what the package manager is... not ipkg, apt-get, rpm?

thanks!

It is Poky based indeed, and it has ipkg as well as apt installed on default. I haven't checked if they work to be honest unsure.gif

I've now checked and there's no sign of ipkg or apt on the c3100 installed system, nor even dpkg so I couldn't install a package even if I copied it over via flash card; scp and ssh are missing so although I've got usb networking up, can't copy files over that way.

wpa_supplicant is missing, as is pccardctl.

special commendation for a lightweight distro, but maybe you went a bit *too* far biggrin.gif

I guess you're right. A new Spitz image is in the making, this time including following additional packages:
update-modules, apt, ipkg, midnight commander, strace, altboot (I like it), wireless-tools, wpa-supplicant, pcmciautils
More on this later

ah, excellent, I was just about to start copying over files from a backup of an angstrom install (hey, if you're going to go bleeding edge, why not go just a bit further over the edge smile.gif )
