I just upgraded my sources to 5.2.1 using cvsup. This has fetched all
the new files, which I have compiled, and installed successfully. uname
-a reveals the following:
However, I just got a new Linksys wifi card (see subject), and need to
enable the ath driver (and ath_hal it seems) in the kernel config, but
there is no option located there. I have removed and resynced (using
cvsup) my GENERIC config, but cannot find these devices. What gives?
Also, a man ath produces a helpful manpage, making me believe that the
driver is in fact present on my system (but not compiled). I have added
devices such as the following, and am currently compiling a new kernel,
can you please confirm if this is the correct action or not, and clear
up why the options are not in the default generic config?
device ath # Atheros Driver.
device ath_hal # Atheros Hardware Layer.
I also enabled wlan of course.
Thank you for your help.
