Bug#620101: linux-source-2.6.38: CONFIG_WIRELESS_EXT can only be enabled by CONFIG_HOSTAP
 
Package: linux-source-2.6.38
Version: 2.6.38-1
Severity: wishlist

I tried to compile "wl" with "m-a a-i broadcom-sta" and the error message told
me:
"WIRELESS_EXT is not defined"
After "make menuconfig" i searched for it, got redirected, but could not enable
WIRELESS_EXT.
Finally i found the solution here:
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-824309-start-0.html

I made a thread with more info here:

sta-871533/
