should show if it loaded, then try the wizard again...


Tried to run the pet several times, always says it loaded, it shows up in the driver list of Network Wizard, when I try to load the driver from the list I get the fatal error. modprobe gives the same error. lsmod shows a list in which it is not present. *pulls out hair*

This is my mistake. I built the driver in Wary 522 in the belief that Wary 530 just had user-land improvements. But it also changed kernels.

I'll get back to you on this.

[Update] I went to BK's site where he keeps the kernel sources and I couldn't find k2.6.32.59 for Wary 5.3.

So your alternative is to use Wary 522.

Got it. Thanks. I have posted the Wary 5.3 driver on Page 1.

Thanks much to all of you. I can now see the dongle from Network Wizard. Scan still will not detect my WLAN, so I still have a ways to go to get connected. Thanks again for all your help with the driver.
