madwifi compatibility issue with my linux version

Debasish-2
Hi all,


I builded the DFS supported version of the madwifi over linux kernel 2.6.17
But when i boot my PC with the card attached to the PCI slot , my booting
process stops while loading the modules.


The PC boots fine with the stable version 0.94 and my madwifi works pretty
fine. I am tring to verifying DFS over a atheros wifi card.

So please any body can help.


thanks
Debasish

What is the DFS version?  Are you trying the current snapshot from the
DFS branch?  Then please specify the revision.  It would be nice if you
try the latest revision, so that you don't encounter a known problem.

You can blacklist driver to prevent it from loading on startup.  You'll
need to create a file under /etc/modprobe.d and put "blacklist ath_pci"
into it.

Then you can switch to the console, run "dmesg -n 8" to enable output of
all messages and load the driver with "modprobe ath_pci".  You'll see
messages from the driver.

More detailed instructions for debugging are in Linux kernel sources,
file Documentation/oops-tracing.txt.

More information about the kernel and the card may be useful.
