Subject: Recent driver in linux kernel 2.6.25-rc2
Date: Tue, 19 Feb 2008 16:39:10 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


as of pre 2.6.25 kernels, kismet monitoring tool does not work with the message:
# kismet
Launching kismet_server: //usr/bin/kismet_server
Suid priv-dropping disabled.  This may not be secure.
No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled.
Non-RFMon VAPs will be destroyed on multi-vap interfaces (ie, madwifi-ng)
Enabling channel hopping.
Enabling channel splitting.
Source 0 (iwl4965): Enabling monitor mode for iwl4965 source interface wlan0
channel 6...
FATAL: Failed to set channel 6 5:Input/output error

the same tool works in 2.6.24 kernel.

I have 03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or
AGN Network Connection (rev 61), 8086:4230 

I have ThinkPad T61 laptop.

Btw, will there be support for LED with iwl4965 driver?

The driver version is 1.2.23ks.
