Default Announcing compat-wireless in Ubuntu Hardy linux-backports-modules

This is an announcement of the implementation of the wireless
compatibility stack in Hardy linux-backports-modules.


You can find out more about this project at linuxwireless.org. In
essence, it is a backport of the current upstream versions of the
wireless drivers and stack suites from


You can install a test version of linux-backports-modules-2.6.24-19.19
(or higher) from my PPA at http://launchpad.net/~timg-tpi. I think I
will not upload to the Ubuntu archive until this has had some regression
testing on iwlwifi and the rtx200 drivers.

Because of the constantly maturing nature of these drivers, LBM will
experience frequent updates. I will attempt to choose relatively stable
merge points, certainly at major kernel releases. However, your mileage
may vary.

Note that this completely replaces iwlwifi 1.2.25 as well as the rt2x00
drivers from Serialmonkey (that Stefan worked so hard to backport).

For now please direct all comments to Launchpad Bug #237746.
