Hi,

is there anywhere a step-by-step install instruction for pcmcia and wlan ?

I've tried some postings, but nothing works - or better i'm to stupid for it. :-(

After a reboot i get some unresolved messages while loading the orinoco module.

watching 1 sockets
starting, version is 3.1.34
socket 0: Compaq WL100 11 Mbps Wireless Adapater
executing: 'modprobe hermes'
executing: 'modprobe orinoco'
executing: 'modprobe orinoco_cs'
+ /lib/modules/2.4.21-ppc-r2/pcmcia/orinoco_cs.o: unresolved symbol orinoco_proc_dev_cleanup
+ /lib/modules/2.4.21-ppc-r2/pcmcia/orinoco_cs.o: unresolved symbol orinoco_proc_dev_init
+ /lib/modules/2.4.21-ppc-r2/pcmcia/orinoco_cs.o: unresolved symbol ___orinoco_startup
+ /lib/modules/2.4.21-ppc-r2/pcmcia/orinoco_cs.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.21-ppc-r2/pcmcia/orinoco_cs.o failed

modprobe exited with status 255
+ /lib/modules/2.4.21-ppc-r2/pcmcia/orinoco_cs.o: unresolved symbol orinoco_proc_dev_cleanup
+ /lib/modules/2.4.21-ppc-r2/pcmcia/orinoco_cs.o: unresolved symbol orinoco_proc_dev_init
+ /lib/modules/2.4.21-ppc-r2/pcmcia/orinoco_cs.o: unresolved symbol ___orinoco_startup
insmod excited with status 1


I 've posted it on the network section, but no answers.



Thanks for your help

The culprit here is a bug in module-init-tools. I had the problem using pre6-pre8, so you can use pre5 or pre9 works fine. This should get rid of those unresolved symbol errors.

Once it reboots, you will probably see the interface using the iwconfig command. After that, it is just a matter of dhcpcd interfacex replace interfacex with the interface you see using the iwconfig command, for example on mine it's dhcpcd eth2 .

Hope this helps.

Good luck,
Felipe

Hi feliperal,

first thank you for your help.

I checked my box and the module-init-tools weren't installed.
So i emerged them (0.9.12-r1) and after a reboot i run into the same problem. :cry:

Hokahey guys,

thanx for help, i solved the problem.
It seems that the problem was, that i've selected the hermes drives as module in the kernel. When i unselect this and recompile the kernel there were no problmes with the orinoco driver.
The fuc**** old WL100card works, but now i run into the next problem when i try to set a wep(128) key with iwconfig eth1 key "s:qwertzuiopasd..." the i get the message:
Error for wireless request "Set Encde" (8b2A) :
SET failed on device eth1 ; Opereation not supported.

Does it means that no wep encryption is possioble for this configuration ?
