I created madwifi package for AR5007* Atheros radios for CentOS 5.x
using your scep file for madwifi-0.9.4.1 and I need your help to finish
it. Or better said, I have almost everything prepared and I would like
you to download the source I prepared, check it for errors, fix the
issue with 2 unpacked files (scripts) I had to comment-out from spec
file, build it and publish it at ATrpms.
Source1 and Source2 I took from mainstream madwifi, they are needed for
proper functioning, but since I am very new in rpm building, could not
understand why compiling stops (I added error message inside spec file.
I produced rpm's for 2.6.18-128.1.6 kernel (i386) and tried them (I
first uninstalled ones I build from source) and they work like the charm
several days now, so I think they are ready for deployment.
Download location for src file:
I have set change log to initial build, but you are welcome to edit it
to reflect your spec file policy, but please leave my name since this is
first package I submit to any repository. until now I have rebuild
some 75 (+50 untested) rpms from various Fedora repository's
(http://www.plcomputers.net/download/plc-centos5-custom) but I have
never build from source archive.
I use your stable repository as first addition (just after the EPEL
repository) and I am very happy with it. I must say I was irritated with
all the macros (I tried to compile also for other kernels I have devel
packages for and could not find the way for it) but I know you have good
reasons for doing so.
For those liking my rebuilds, I am planing to also make public the
src.rpm's very shortly.
