Little install guide to help out:



I tried using this install guide, and I still do not see anything close to a wireless card on my system (I have an Intel 2200BG installed in a Dell Latitude D600), my system boots up fine though......

This is my first atempt to port the linux driver to mac.

The requirements are a 10.4.4 kernel and the IO80211Family.kext version 1.1

Please help me going further

Thanks

@Amadeus
I used the manual and the airport showed up. But it has no function yet. I'm strongly looking forward for the first working alpha or what ever release ;-)

amadeus, currently, its not a working driver yet.... like i said earlier, its only allows u to detect ur wireless card only and recognise it as an airport driver but does nothing more than that...

it is indeed a challenge, you have to rewrite the driver to the iokit or whatever, and it's a pain in the ass. I just hope this guy can actually do it.

i've installed 10.4.8 with semthex bet9 kernel and recompiled the iwi2200.kext

The IO80211Family.kext and framework from 10.4.8 are usefull and should be replaced
by the ones found in the 10.4.5 to 10.4.7 update.

I've removed the IOPCCardFamily.kext from 10.4.8 (it crashs all times at boot). Anyone as it working on 10.4.8?

v2 of iwi2200.kext starts with a 168.254.xxx.xxx IP. it can be changed to 192.168.xxx.xxx or
other. I don't have 2 wireless machines, but i'd like to know if it can work in a closed network...
to use it on 10.4.8 remove the IOPCCardFamily reference from info.plist and recompile iwi2200.kext


I read bikedude880 posts and i can use all the help i can get on this. I'm using an old firmware. i'd like to use the latest
but i have no idea on how to split it (it is included in just one file) or to load it as in the linux code.

Anyone with new ideas, please post new versions of the iwi2200.kext on this thread for being tested.

The intel linux 3945 BG should be easy portable since it's an intel card. I would like to see a build for this one at this thread


New versions should be set to work with the 10.4.8 kernel. i'll submit then soon

Yeah the 3945 is being worked on, im currently doing firmware loading. But it would be good to work together on one project. I was wondering if we ould get together and maybe do the 2200BG before starting the 3945 together. I dunno, just a thought.


Edit: Also when u release ur code, i'll give it a look over and see if there is anything i can use in the 3945 kext, if that is ok with you?

If you two do end up working together, PLEASE be cooperative and selfless!!!! That has been the downfall of nearly every team here in the past! Good luck to both of you!

i agree... another important thing is also support from the forum users... previous attempts at the driver fail because of some think-they-are-so-damn-freaking-smart people who criticise the people who put in effort....

i believe as forum users, and people who desperately need their drivers, we should be patient and 100% supportive of their tireless effort and work... :(

If the 3945 driver gets done I would be willing to pay for it.
