I would love it if somewone could make a doc on how to get Kismet working with prisim chipset and Cisco drivers. Preferable using emerge and using the cvs drivers.
Thanks

great info here but it's not helping my problem :\. i've got a NetGear FA411 (pcnet_cs not natsemi according to pcmcia-cs list) and no matter what i do (recompiled my kernel a few times and i'm still not terribly sure which NIC driver i'm supposed to select), it still doesn't work. anyone got any ideas, i'm going to start pulling out what little hair i have pretty soon.


foshdawg:

I just bought this same card last Friday at Best Buy and have it working perfectly in my Thinkpad. I basically followed the instructions at the root of this thread, but here's a step by step explanation from the notes I made to myself in case I have to do it again:

PCMCIA networking:
-----------------------

Compile a kernel with the following:

In NETWORK DEVICE SUPPORT:
ETHERNET (100Mbit) --->
[*] Ethernet (10 or 100Mbit)

(Select Ethernet (10 or 100Mbit)

PCMCIA Cardbus support in kernel NOT SELECTED.

No specific networking card selected.

The idea here is you're letting pcmcia-cs do all the work.

Compile this kernel, put it in /boot, make any changes to grub so you can get to the new kernel - then, only after doing this:

emerge pcmcia-cs
rc-update add pcmcia boot

In /etc/modules.autoload there should be the following two lines (plus any others you might have put in there, such as for nvidia support):

i82365
ds

Boot with the new kernel. It should detect your card and bring it online.

Note that this is on a fresh install of 1.4 rc4 and I don't use any other PCMCIA devices yet.

Hope this works for you. As you can see, the steps are quite simple but the thing to understand is that you're letting pcmcia_cs figure out the right way to drive the card. You're not actually specifying Netgear FA411 at any step of the process.

I seem to have a problem with the "emerge pcmcia" drivers, when i pull the card out my system crashes, but if i compile the drivers in the kernel i dont get the crash when i pull the card out.

It is not so much that i pull my card out alot, it is that when apm drops down in to standby or what not, it tunrs the card off, and when the computer comes back on it crashes >

You might want to check your kernel settings to make sure that hot-pluggable devices is disable under General Setup. Also, make sure you've enabled wirlesss suppport under Network Devices (don't select any drivers, though)


why should you disable hotplug support? in this case you'ld lose the possibility to "hotplug" the card while you pc is running, or am i wrong?

another question:
has anyone made experiences with using the USE-flag="wavelan" to get cards to work? i heard of ppl who got it only working with this flag!

PostPosted: Sun Jun 08, 2003 9:28 pm    Post subject: Cisco LM352 Problems Reply with quote

All of the posts have been very helpful. I actually got the card up and running with cisco's drivers and the 2.4.20-gentoo-r2 kernel. However, I wanted the get Kismet to work and could not seem to get the sourceforge airo-linux drivers to work. So I went to 2.4.20-gentoo-r5. What I got is posted below when I tried to start pcmcia services.

Linux PCMCIA Card Services 3.2.4
Jun 5 00:13:51 [kernel] Intel ISA/PCI/CardBus PCIC probe:
Jun 5 00:13:51 [kernel] ISA irqs (scanned) = 3,4,5,10 PCI status changes

Jun 5 00:13:52 [cardmgr] + Module airo_cs loaded, with warnings
Jun 5 00:13:52 [cardmgr] bind 'airo_cs' to socket 0 failed: Operation not permitted

No matter what I did, the bind error was always there. So I caught a wild hair and decided to use 2.4.21-rc7-ac1. And low and behold life entered my card again. So I just wanted to share the things I had to do to get it to work.

1. Copied over my .config file from my gentoo-r5 kernel and ran 'make
oldconfig'. Then ran make menuconfig to double check all the settings.
2. Compiled and installed the new kernel.
make dep && make clean bzImage modules modules_install
mount /boot
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.21-rc7-ac1
edit grub.conf to reflect the new kernel
umount /boot
3. Reboot and relink /usr/src/linux to /usr/src/linux-2.4.21-rc7-ac1
4. emerge anything that needs to be a module (I do e100 and alsa-driver)
5. Edit the pcmcia-cs-3.2.4.ebuild to look like this below. You probably want to save this off and do the protect thing so you can use it again.

...

src_unpack() {
unpack ${P}.tar.gz

# pcmcia-cs now has the latest orinoco driver included

cd ${S}
epatch ${DISTDIR}/${P}-orinoco-patch.diff

cd ${S}
mv Configure Configure.orig
sed -e 's:usr/man:usr/share/man:g' Configure.orig > Configure
chmod ug+x Configure
#man pages will now install into /usr/share/man

einfo "copying airo-linux drivers from sourceforge into build dir"
einfo "note: malloc.h is deprecated in airo_cs, use slab.h"
cp /your-directory/airo-linux/kernel/airo.c ${S}/wireless
cp /your-directory/airo-linux/kernel/airo_cs.c ${S}/wireless
cp /your-directory/airo-linux/kernel/airo.h ${S}/wireless
cp /your-directory/airo-linux/kernel/aes.h ${S}/wireless
cp /your-directory/airo-linux/kernel/aestab.h ${S}/wireless
cp /your-directory/airo-linux/kernel/mic.h ${S}/wireless

}

...

IMPORTANT: Before you emerge pcmcia-cs, you must edit airo_cs.c and change the reference for mallac.h to slab.h. If you don't the compile will fail using a 2.4.21 series kernel.

5. Now emerge pcmcia-cs. If you followed the kernel configuration instructions at the beginning of this post, when you start pcmcia services or reboot, you won't get any errors and when your card is inserted it will come to life. Posts before this show you how to get things configured.

6. The one last thing you may have trouble with is the iwconfig reporting different versions of wireless extensions. This is easily solved by following the following steps outlined at http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/Tools.html.

# iwconfig says : "Warning: Driver for device XXXX has been compiled with version XX"

1. Do cp /usr/src/linux/include/linux/wireless.h /usr/include/linux
2. Recompile and reinstall the wireless tools
3. Use "iwconfig --version" to check that versions matches
4. If you still have this message after this, or if the driver version is a bogus number, your driver need fixing...

Note that for us gentoo users, step 2 means 'emerge wireless-tools'. Took me a minute to figure that out as I thought pcmcia-cs provided iwconfig and the other iw* utilities. Guess I was too happy that the other stuff works. Hope this helps cisco users and if I made any mistakes please post corrections.

Friday is a good day.

bvetter: how did you get orinoco_cs to work? did you copy net.eth0 to net.eth1 and change the settings?

I have emerged pcmcia-cs and my 3c754 NIC works fine under it. However, when I remove my 3c754 card and put in the orinoco wireless card, my laptop does not seem to do anything :(

Code:

[with 3c754 card in laptop]

# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by    Not tainted
3c574_cs               10148   1
ds                      7464   1  [3c574_cs]
i82365                 41632   1
pcmcia_core            48512   0  [3c574_cs ds i82365]

# modprobe 3c745_cs
modprobe: Can't locate 3c754_cs

# /etc/init.d/pcmcia stop
 * WARNING:  you are stopping a boot service.
 * Stopping pcmcia...                                                        [ok]

[I physically remove the 3c754 card, and insert the orinoco card]

# /etc/init.d/pcmcia start
 * Starting pcmcia...
cardmgr[2734]: watching 1 sockets                                    [ok]

[i hear a high beep and then a low beep]

# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by    Not tainted
ds                      7464   1  [3c574_cs]
i82365                 41632   1
pcmcia_core            48512   0  [ds i82365]


Why isn't pcmcia-cs loading up orinoco_cs?

Does anyone have kismet working with pcmcia-cs (3.2.4) AND orinoco_cs ?

Excelent!!
Worked an absolute treat!

Just a note: on some systems /etc/modules.autoload is actually /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-X.Y

Thanks once again for a very easy to follow instructions! This Db is a GREAT resource!

Hey goanuj I am having the exact same problem as you are with the orinoco card. I have my normal SMC 8040 TX card working with pcmcia-cs and I can take it out and put it in and it autodetects etc. When I insert the Orinoco card (silver) it does not notice its existence, I hear a high beep and a low beep. I have done the same as you copying /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to eth1 as well as making a new IFACE entry. I have also added orinoco_cs in /etc/modules.autoload but so far nothing much has been helping. Any input from a similar users experience would be helpful. And I am planning to use this for war driving so any suggestion on an antennae or signal amplifier would be appreciated.

thanks

You're welcome, Cammy. :)

Goanju and I will be getting it into an XML file (hopefully as an official doc) soon - Goanju has done the preliminary work and I'll finish it up over the next few days.

Charlieg,

I will also put some more time in when I get my sutpid wireless card to work, it pains me to see KNOPPIX get my wireless card up and running without any problems, but when I try to do it through gentoo I can't get anything to work!

Private message me if you need some more help with the XML file, I know I only did about a third of the entire document, but it was tough! Transferring normal docs into XML docs is time consuming!

I know with the orinoco cards (and wireless cards in general) there is something called scanning mode and something called monitor mode. I need to do some research to figure out which one is needed for kismet.

There is a developer that posted this

latexer wrote:
If you use the pcmcia-cs package from portage, then it already has the monitor mode patch from shmoo applied. You should just be able to start up kismet and go to town.

if you're looking for scanning (as opposed to monitor mode) then check out Jean Tourrilhes page which includes patches against most of the recent orinoco drivers released here.

Scanning and monitor mode patches don't both apply cleanly right now, but i've got some modified patches in the works that make both jive. Sadly that means you need to pick one or the other. If you want scanning, edit /usr/portage/sys-apps/pcmcia-cs/pcmcia-cs-3.2.4.ebuild and change the line
Code:
OV="orinoco-0.13b"

to
Code:
OV="orinoco-0.13d"

(to get a slightly more up-to-date version of orinoco and one that has a scanning patch available)

and then change the line
Code:
epatch ${DISTDIR}/${P}-orinoco-patch.diff

to
Code:
epatch ${DISTDIR}/scanning-0.13d-v3.diff


Make sure you have the scanning patch for that version placed in /usr/portage/distfiles/. Then you should be able to do
Code:
ebuild /usr/portage/sys-apps/pcmcia-cs/pcmcia-cs-3.2.4.ebuild digest
emerge pcmcia-cs


Voila! you should now be able to do
Code:
ifconfig eth1 up
iwlist eth1 scan

and see some nodes if you're near any!

I am running a Dell Inspiron, I have a built in NIC and a PCMCIA Orinoco card.

I have the onboard NIC set as module that doesnt autoload, I wrote a simple script that does the appropriate modprobes if I choose to take the laptop online. I am trying to configure my Orinoco Gold 128 802.11b but am having trouble. I have seen a number of posts and tried following them, but either I am dense or I didn't find the relevant post b/c the procedures haven't been successful. I am sure the problem is an oversight on my behalf. I am going to post what I presume are the relevant config files.

I have no PCMCIA support but I do have wirelss support config'd in the kernel.

when I reboot I see an error that says

Agere Systems Product
Unsupported Card in slot 0


trying to name wireless card as net.eth1
I copied net.eth0 to net.eth1 and didn't make any changes.

/etc/config.d/net looks like:

iface_eth0="dhcp"
iface_eth1="dhcp"

i then run:

insmod i82365
insmod ds
cardmgr -f

cardmgr responds:
cardmgr[16877]: watching 1 sockets

/etc/conf.d/pcmcia:

# Put cardmgr options here
CARDMGR_OPTS="-f"
# To set the PCMCIA scheme at startup...
SCHEME="home"

# These are from the pcmcia-cs distribution, but aren't used yet
# Should be either i82365 or tcic
PCIC="i82365 tcic"
# Put socket driver timing parameters here
PCIC_OPTS=""
# Put pcmcia_core options here
CORE_OPTS=""


kernel config as posted.

reboot. still didnt come up.

ifconfig eth1
eth1: error fetching interface information: Device not found

lsmod looks like:

Great thread! It's been a valuable resource. Unfortunatly, I still can't get my wireless card to work!

I'm using a Linksys WPC11 (version 1 - Prism2 chipset). I've tried several combinations of kernel options, kernel modules, pcmcia-cs, and linux-wlan-ng to no avail. I've managed to get 'cardmgr' to recognize the card and load a driver both with the built-in kernel hermes/orinico_cs modules and using linux-wlan-ng's prism2_cs driver. However, in both cases when the module is loaded on card insertion, I get the following error:
Code:

Jul 21 08:00:13 [cardmgr] executing: 'modprobe prism2_cs'
Jul 21 08:00:13 [kernel] init_module: prism2_cs.o: 0.2.0 Loaded
Jul 21 08:00:13 [cardmgr] bind 'prism2_cs' to socket 1 failed: Operation not permitted

Has anyone else ever encountered this error? What did you do to fix it?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I tried it on my acer travelmate 529, but 'i82365 or i82092 do not work.
[
when booting:

initializing [chipset]
initialization failed
]

when trying to do anz' solution (env-update, etc...) i get the following problems:
env-update.....successful
source /etc/profiles .....no such file or directory
ldconfig ...........no answer
update-modules force .....depmod: ***Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r5/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/apm.o

has anybody an idea about the problem :?:


APM isn't working at the moment. so I wasn't able to do update-modules......
my fault.
Now working

There's only one thing that's missing IMHO...

To get an Orinoco card in Monitor-mode (for netstumbling/wardriving) with Kismet, you need to patch the pcmcia-cs drivers after untarring it, and before starting to compile it (./configure)... Normally this shouldn't be a problem, though emerge does it all in one time, so without patching the drivers in between, so via this way you can't go wardrivin' with it :(

Now what i did is install the pcmcia-cs drivers by hand, works for me... though most people would like to just emerge it i think ;)

If you're going to try to write a second HOWTO or whatsoever includes what i'm trying to describe above, you should also know that pcmcia-cs-3.2.3 is the last version that works with the 3.2.1 patch available, patching pcmcia-cs-3.2.4 with it will fail!

Kismet, pcmcia-cs and Orinoco cards

I was able to just emerge without installing drivers by hand. I'm using standard ebuilds for pcmcia-cs (3.2.4), Ethereal (0.9.13), and kismet 2.8.1-r1. No manual intervention required to build packages. I did have to tweak the notebook to reliably use kismet or Ethereal...

I'm using builtin Orinoco miniPCI (eth1) in a Dell notebook that also has builtin 10/100 Ethernet (eth0). Using pcmcia-cs drivers instead of kernel drivers. The latest 3.2.4 pcmcia-cs package does a nice job of installing schmoo monitor mode patches, but I still had problems getting kismet to work longer than about a 1 minute when using notebook without Ethernet connection.

The fix was to disable all networking applications that use wireless interface, otherwise I get "eth1: Error -5 writing packet to BAP" and CPU utilization goes to 100% and monitoring stops. Since the notebook had no Ethernet connection at boot time, the wireless interface was only active interface and all networking apps use eth1. I always get "Error -5 ... BAP" within minutes after placing eth1 into monitor mode via command line (iwpriv eth1 monitor 1 1) or using kismet_monitor. Obviously the network apps cannot use wireless interface after it is placed in monitor mode, so the solution is to disable the networking apps.

In my particular case, the following commands were added to the kismet_monitor script to simplify starting kismet. I also set HOPPER=yes to ensure that kismet is always scanning all channels:
Code:
HOPPER="yes"
...
...
ENABLECMD=0

echo "stopping network services"
/etc/init.d/netmount stop
/etc/init.d/samba stop
/etc/init.d/sshd stop
/etc/init.d/vcron stop


To determine which services to stop, just check the message preceeding "Error -5 ... BAP" in /var/log/syslog and stop that service. If the logs are full just grep for the first "Error -5 ... BAP" timestamp. You'll find the offending network app pretty quick that way.

even if i try to boot with the card in, it will freeze before finishing the boot, and the above message is also the last message shown.

TIA,

Thank you soooooo much! You don't know how long I've been tearing my hair out because of that problem. Taking that code out seems to fix the freezing problem I've bene having with cardmgr. I can now use my netgear MA401 wireless card on my Dell Inspiron 8000.

(I threw in a bunch of keywords so others can find this thread faster then I did. =] )

-Urgo

This also is necessary for the inspiron 5150 (and i believe a number of other recent dell models).

One can get around it by setting /etc/conf.d/pcmcia CORE_OPTS="probe_io=0", but this complicates things in that you either need to update modules.conf to incorperate the probe_io or manually load pcmcia, as modprobing yenta_socket will otherwise load the dependant modules and cause pcmcia to ignore your core opts. I also assume that the manner which rage suggests is less restrictive (in that it probes some io's).

Thanks for the solution rage, as manually loading pcmcia isnt fun...

Here's a stumper for y'all. Is there a way to add new driver support to pcmcia-cs without having to go insane with the programming (of which I am not l33t)? I have a Linksys WPC11 v4 which uses the RTL8180 drivers (available at the Realtek website).

While I can get it work with a load of fairly arcane iwpriv commands (such as iwpriv wlan0 wlan_para wepdkeyid=0,wepkey40_1=1111111111 for example) and a few insmods, doing that manually at bootup is a pain, especially since the script misfires half the time (resulting in either a failure to connect--best case--or, worst case, a kernel panic). Really, it's exactly half. I've done the math. ;).
