net-wireless/zd1211 -> configuring kernel
 
Hi!

first, sorry for breaking the threat...
I did find ZD1211RW:

Symbol: ZD1211RW [=n] │
│ Prompt: ZyDAS ZD1211/ZD1211B USB-wireless support │
│ Defined at drivers/net/wireless/zd1211rw/Kconfig:1 │
│ Depends on: NETDEVICES && !S390 && USB && IEEE80211_SOFTMAC && WLAN_80211 && EXPERIMENTAL │
│ Location: │
│ -> Device Drivers │
│ -> Network device support (NETDEVICES [=y]) │
│ -> Wireless LAN │
│ Selects: WIRELESS_EXT && FW_LOADER

But it does not appear in my kernel options.
Looking for dependencies:

arnau@pataki ~ $ grep NETDEVICES /usr/src/.config |grep -v "^#"
CONFIG_NETDEVICES=y

NOT S390
arnau@pataki ~ $ grep S390 /usr/src/.config |grep -v "^#"

arnau@pataki ~ $ grep USB /usr/src/.config |grep -v "^#"
CONFIG_USB=y

arnau@pataki ~ $ grep IEEE80211_SOFTMAC /usr/src/.config
# CONFIG_IEEE80211_SOFTMAC is not set

rnau@pataki ~ $ grep WLAN_80211 /usr/src/.config
# CONFIG_WLAN_80211 is not set

arnau@pataki ~ $ grep EXPERIM /usr/src/.config |grep -v "^#"
CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL=y


So, I think I have all options selected, but those two do not appear as
"y" in .config, but yes in menuconfig...

I'm going to recompile the kernel and try again, but I think I don't
need it to make zd* driver appear as a valid option...

Am I wrong?

TIA,
Arnau

After recompile the kernel I was able to selct the module, but I still
have the question, why do I have to boot with new kernel for beeing
able to select it?

Cheers,
