Default Bug#659927: ATH9K driver will not connect to my adhoc network

Hi,

Sorry for the roller coaster ride.

If I understand correctly, your ad hoc network uses WEP. That's very
good news, since it means there's a better patch to try.

See[*] for instructions if you'd like to test it. The patch is
queued for inclusion in v3.2.7 and could be worth including in the
next upload for unstable (which might be based on 3.2.6), too.

Thanks again,
Jonathan

WPA should already work if I understand correctly --- the bug only
affects WEP.

Thanks. Could you provide the exact error message?

The repository is a directory named "linux" under whichever directory
you were in when you cloned the repo before. It contains the Linux
source code.

Hopefully something like

cd linux
git apply --index <thepatch>
dpkg -i ../<name of package>
reboot

will work.

These commands build a new kernel image package, which would show up
in the GRUB menu as an option at boot time like the rest of them. It
does not affect any other kernel versions that might already be
installed.

The next upload of linux in Debian sid includes this patch and will
probably show up in the archive some time in the next few days.

Hope that helps,
Jonathan

That's right. The patch was accepted upstream and we've had some
confirmation that it works.

Soon enough we'll see whether it works on your system, as the fix gets
uploaded and then makes it way through Debian mirrors and to your
machine when you upgrade.

Thanks again for your help,
Jonathan

No big problem. We all learn, and I never got the impression you were
stupid here.

Thanks for working to improve Debian.

Sincerely,
Jonathan
