I've been following your directions, and these worked last time.
However, I just ran into a problem. I will write the instructions given
below and offer comments. The problem is with instruction 5.
The new version of this file is 1.0.6_2, no big deal.
3. sudo aptitude install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential module-assistant
No problems here.
4. untar the firmware to /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/
tar didn't do anything because I actually already had this in that directory from the previous install (I updated the kernel and wiped out the wireless...)
5. sudo dpkg -i /path/to/ipw2200-source_1.0.4-1_all.deb
And here is where the problem lies:
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of ipw2200-source:
ipw2200-source depends on ieee80211-source (>= 1.0.3); however:
Package ieee80211-source is not installed.
Quick Googling doesn't seem to help me find a .deb file to install
this. Anyone have any suggestions?
