Hi Juan Carlos Mart?n


As I know, HostAP doesn?t support Orinoco cards. You should have a
PRISM-based card.

Betreff: Change orinoco driver to hostap with kernel 2.6.6




I have tried to install HostAP 0.1.3 in my laptop (Fedora core 1, kernel
2.6.6 running, wireless card DELL truemobile 1150), and I followed the
instructions contained in the README file:



make install


(no error messages displayed)


but when I restart cardmgr (doing /etc/init.d/pcmcia restart) I get again
the orinoco driver (that comes by default with the kernel)  instead of
hostap (looking at the modules loaded, with lsmod)


How do I get rid of the default orinoco driver, in order to be able to use
hostap instead?


Maybe the problem is that I have followed the instructions for "Systems
using kernel tree PCMCIA modules" instead of "System using external
pcmcia-cs modules". Honestly I don't know which of both suits my system, but
the first one compiled without problems.
