I've gotten myself into a pickle it seems. I just got the latest gentoo kernel (3.7.10), and it seems that they didn't include my wireless lan driver in the menuconfig (or it depends on another option to become visible or something). Anyway, here is what I know:
- The driver/firmware I need is
Doing a search in menuconfig (with '/') for "ipw2200" reveals that it is available:
Symbol: IPW2200 [=n] Type : tristate Prompt: Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG and 2915ABG Network Connection Defined at drivers/net/wireless/ipw2x00/Kconfig:66 Depends on: NETDEVICES [=y] && WLAN [=y] && PCI [=y] && CFG80211 [=y] && CFG80211_WEXT [=n] Location: -> Device Drivers -> Network device support (NETDEVICES [=y]) -> Wireless LAN (WLAN [=y]) -> Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG and 2915ABG Network Connection (IPW2200 [=n])
I can't find it there.
Is there any way I can manually set the variable to [=m] in a config file or something? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!
