This is how I setup my prism chip cf card to work in zubuntu RC1 OmegaMoon 8.04

Zubnutu wifi

lsmod and see if pxa2xx_cs is loaded. this module controls the CF slot

if not loaded then modprobe pxa2xx_cs
then iwconfig should return wlan0, if nothing is returned, do a modprobe hostap_cs if module is not present in lsmod
Try running "dmesg | tail" to see if your CF is recognized now.

edit etc/modules and add to file


create file in etc/modprobe.d/blacklist_hostap

blacklist orinoco_plx
blacklist orinoco_cs
blacklist orinoco_pci
blacklist hermes

remove /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

edit /etc/network/interfaces

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet static
wireless_essid xxxxxxxxxx
wireless_mode managed
wireless_key s:xxxxxxxxxx
address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
gateway xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

if you are using static ips, then you will need to edit /etc/resolv.conf
and add your dns server addresses in this format:

ensure dhcp is running properly by changing the 102 and 103 entries for dhcp in /etc/passwd to 0


open terminal
ifup wlan0

This is what I came up with by reading every post. Once working I did a fresh install and this worked for me. YMMV
