compat wireless package
 
hi there,

is there any documentation/recipe to package a compat-wireless modules 'nicely' ? we would like to package the recent wlan driver for TI OMAP Pandaboard that has reached mainline now for 10.10 maverick kernel. any pointer would be very useful.



thx

nicolas

Nicolas - You should get it for free when we create the compat-wireless
package based on 3.0 and package it in the linux-backports-modules-2.6.X
for each release. The one thing we'll have to start doing is to build
LBM for armel, something not currently done.

Hey
What about Broadcom drivers in Linux 2..6.3.9?
Do we have out of the box working condition?

tim, thanks for your answer. any idea when this package is going to show up?

also i am not sure i fully understand exactly what ubuntu is doing with LBM and compat-wireless. it seems that the compat-wireless packages are available for lucid (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-backports-modules-2.6.32), but not for maverick (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-backports-modules-2.6.35) and not for natty. i would expect that it would be consistent, so I might not be looking at the right place. is there any wiki/blueprint that describes how you handle this?



in the very short term, i would like to quickly package compat-wireless for a 10.10 OMAP based project, so is there any source package that you would recommend us to start with?

and yes, that would be nice if you could create LBM for arm ;-)



thx!

There are compat-wireless packages available in each release for each
subsequently released kernel. For example, Lucid has CW packages from
2.6.33-2.6.38, Maverick has CW packages from 2.6.36-2.6.38, etc. We're a
bit behind on 2.6.39, but we'll propagate CW from 2.6.39 soon (as well
as 3.0 when its released).

CW has its own native packaging with which you could start. I've been
pulling tarballs from
http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless-2.6-stable



and yes, that would be nice if you could create LBM for arm ;-)

thx!

hehe. i saw the CW packages for maverick now... i was looking at maverick instead of maverick-updates ;-)

looking forward for the soon to come updates.

The only in-kernel driver is still in staging, though it is receiving
regular patches from Broadcom engineers.
