Hello, I have NetBSD 2.0 BETA installed on my laptop. Unfortunately, NetBSD does not support my Compaq WL110 wireless card. I looked at the FreeBSD man pages and saw that FreeBSD does support my wireless card. I thought I would be able to take the card's id and other pertinent information from the FreeBSD source code and put it in an appropriate file in the NetBSD source and recompile my kernel. I poked around the FreeBSD source code and found the file sys/dev/wi/if_wi_pccard.c which had an array called wi_pccard_products. This was similar to a structure found in the NetBSD source file dev/pcmcia/if_wi_pcmcia.c. I figured that I would be able to get my card id from there. However, the card is not listed in the array; however, all the other cards seem to be listed there. The Compaq NC5004 is listed, but that uses a different chip. I'm guessing that wi(4) falsely states that it supports my wireless card.
I don't know much about driver programming, but am I missing something here? Even if the if_wi_pccard.c did have my card listed, would I be able to use it port it over to NetBSD (assuming I got all of the #define statements, too)? NetBSD supports the Hermes chip. BTW, my wireless card does work: it works fine on my Windows 2000 partition. Thanks, Yasir _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
