Full Version: Wli2-cf-s11 ... Trouble After Editing Hermes.conf

OK, I bought a shiny new C1000 (happy day!) and flashed with the latest Hentges-style.

My Buffalo WLI2-CF-S11 networking card, which worked flawlessly with the standard Sharp rom, is unrecognized (sad day!) under OZ.

Now, being no stranger to the search command, I found that under PdaXrom, I would add the following to /etc/pcmcia/hermes.conf:

CODE
card "Buffalo WLI2-CF-S11"
 manfid 0x026f, 0x030b
 bind "orinoco_cs"


I did so. I put in my card...

CODE
root@akita:/# cardctl ident
Socket 0:
 product info: "BUFFALO", "WLI2-CF-S11", "", ""
 manfid: 0x026f, 0x030b
 function: 6 (network)
Socket 1:
 no product info available

root@akita:/# cardctl status
Socket 0:
 3.5v 16-bit PC Card
 function 0: [ready]
Socket 1:
 no card


Frabjous day! But... even after restarting pcmcia, unplugging, replugging, etc... no modules get automatically loaded. And if I manually "modprobe orinoco_cs", forcing orinoco and hermes to load, they don't seem to see anything. Ifconfig and iwconfig both stoutly deny the existance of any network devices; ifup wlan0 is even more offended.

I am pouting. Any help available, even for diagnosing? I don't know much about pcmcia wizardry to easily diagnose this.

Also... any reason the display keeps getting corrupted under Konsole? It's really, really annoying; I see dead characters, walking around like regular characters, not knowing they're dead, and it makes it right difficult to read.

After deciding that I'd given up too easily, I worked that search function some more and tried making the same modifications to hostap.conf, (binding, of course, to hostap_cs), with similar results.

I shall pout some more. What am I missing?

Plot thickens.

Manually modprobing hostap_cs gives me lots of unresolved symbol errors as described in another thread. On the C1k, the bootup seems to love its "SHARP" logo, so I don't see the OZ text messages and can't verify a warning exists earlier. Other modules load fine (orinoco_cs, for example, loads quite happily).

Hmmm.

I don't have a C1k, but I don't think you've flashed the OZ kernel for this image. Check: cat /proc/version

That is almost certainly the problem according to the hentges thread. I'm still working that one--but thanks for pointing out my error!

Found it--I had named zImage.bin "zImage" on the CF card, so it couldn't see it. Silly me.

Looks pretty good, at least with the basic stuff. Haven't played much yet with the wireless, but I can see that wlan0 exists. Now to try wrestling with wpa_supplicant (shudder).
