Hello,
I'm a big newbee with Linux.

I just install a mandrake 10.1 and trying to install my Proxim Orinoco 11b/g PC CARD GOLD (8470-WD) on it.

Very difficult for me because not recognize but finally find the url :
http://madwifi.sourceforge.net/dokuwiki/doku.php where i find a good guide. Thanks mr Graham!

The problem is that i have always a bug, at the last command Sad
=> modprobe ath_pci
this command return me the message
=> FATAL: Module ath_pci not found.

Is someone have an idea or a possible help, i'm looking and looking on google, find the same prob in some forum but no solution...

Pls if you have an idea explain the maximum don't forget i'm a noob Embarassed

Thanks a lot in advance
Fred

PS : Sorry for my bad english, it's not my native language.

Hi FredLg,
These are reasons for modprobe ath_pci not working that I can think of:
1. The driver didn't get placed in the correct place
2. depmod -a wasn't run, or wasn't run as root

When you run depmod -a, it goes through all the directories it knows about and looks for modules (drivers if you like) to add to a list. When you then try to install a module by using modprobe it checks against this list for the module in question.

You can check to see if the ath_pci driver is in the right place by doing the following commands:
Code:
cd /lib/modules
find . -type f -name ath_pci


If nothing is returned, the driver isn't there, and you need to work out why.
If you get something like ath_pci.ko returned you should ensure you have run depmod -a as root, then try modprobe ath_pci (again as root). As a last resort you could actually reboot and then try
Code:
lsmod

You may find that ath_pci is already loaded automatically. If this is the case then you can carry on configuring it. Hope this helps

hi,

thanks for your advice

Code:

cd /lib/modules
find . -type f -name ath_pci


the find returns nothing so if i understand you, the driver is not at the good place... is someone have an idea why???

the lsmod command returns me follow

Oops, sorry, should have been ath_pci* as you are looking for files that begin with ath_pci
Try the find again with the star at the end - sorry!

ok with the star i found something :

Code:

find . -type f -name ath_pci*
./2.6.8.1-12mdk/kernel/net/ath_pci.o
./2.4.27-0.pre2.1mdkcustom/net/ath_pci.o


so the problem comes not from there is that ? Confused

That looks fine.
Try running depmod -a again as root.
Now go to /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-12mdk and have a look in modules.dep. Search for ath_pci in there. If you can't find it, there's something wierd going on with depmod. You could try doing:
[cod]depmod -b /lib/modules/2.4.27-0.pre2.1mdkcustom -a[/code]
This will force depmod to use /lib/modules/2.4.27-0.pre2.1mdkcustom as the base directory for searching for modules.

hi,

mhhh this is crazy

I did again de depmod -a as root like before but always same prob afetr with the command
Code:

[root@localhost home]# depmod -a
[root@localhost home]# modprobe ath_pci
FATAL: Module ath_pci not found.
[root@localhost home]#


so with your advice i opened the file modules.dep

no trace of ath_pci Sad

So I tried your comman, always as root
Code:

depmod -b /lib/modules/2.4.27-0.pre2.1mdkcustom -a
WARNING: Couldn't open directory /lib/modules/2.4.27-0.pre2.1mdkcustom/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-12mdk: No such file or directory
FATAL: Could not open /lib/modules/2.4.27-0.pre2.1mdkcustom/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-12mdk/modules.dep.temp for writing: No such file or directory



I think i type a bad directory so i did the find at the </> to have the correct
Code:

[root@localhost /]# find . -type f -name ath_pci*
./lib/modules/2.6.8.1-12mdk/kernel/net/ath_pci.o
./lib/modules/2.4.27-0.pre2.1mdkcustom/net/ath_pci.o


but you wrote it good, but notice this, it look write 2 times the lib/modules/ in the warning
Code:

/lib/modules/2.4.27-0.pre2.1mdkcustom/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-12mdk:


Is there a problem of syntax or other???

[root@localhost /]# find . -type f -name ath_pci*
./lib/modules/2.6.8.1-12mdk/kernel/net/ath_pci.o
./lib/modules/2.4.27-0.pre2.1mdkcustom/net/ath_pci.o


but you wrote it good, but notice this, it look write 2 times the lib/modules/ in the warning
Code:

/lib/modules/2.4.27-0.pre2.1mdkcustom/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-12mdk:


Is there a problem of syntax or other???
