I'm currently using Redhat 8.0 and I have my 802.11 card - Dell's TrueMobile 1150 (which I gather is really a lucent orinco card) and I was curious as to what I would need to install this under slackware, I've attempted to use it under slackware and I searched google but was unable to find any information on the topic. I was just more or less wondering what I would need to do to get it running under slack. Thanks - BaK-o0-nin
from this page:
hthThe internal wireless card is actually run off of the pcmcia slots. Therefore, just set up your network in /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts, define the network configuration in /etc/syscongfig/network-scripts/ifcfp-eth1 and off you go. The first couple of octects from the cards mac, this may be different for you, is 00:02:2D. Oh yea, in case you missed the not obvious reference it uses eth1.
