hey Steve,

i had the same errors yesterday. For me installing the kernel.i686 solved the problem. Look at the the Fedora Bugzilla.

Betreff: Madwifi on FC6

(cross-posting on Fedora and MadWifi lists)

I just upgraded from FC5 to FC6. Updated to the latest SVN (1782), but I
can't get madwifi to work.  Looking for suggestions, as I had to move my
computer into the basement to connect via wire.  I get the same sorts of
errors if I use the builds from freshrpms or livna.

I can't find a bugzilla entry on this. Do you have the number?  As far
as I can tell, I'm running the i686 kernel:

Linux sds-desk.sterndata.com 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 #1 SMP Mon Oct 16
14:54:20 EDT 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

# rpm -qa |grep kernel
kernel-devel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6
kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6
kernel-headers-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6

# ll /usr/src/kernels
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 18 root root 4096 Oct 26 00:01 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6-i686

I did not compile the kernel myself, but I am compiling madwifi from source.

Try the packages at http://atrpms.net/dist/fc6/madwifi/
Been there. Done that. Didn't work. Same errors.

I'm now wondering if I should do a clean install, although I don't see what would be creating problems for kernel modules compiled against the new kernel following an upgrade.
