That’s okay. We’re all learning. Darren’s reply was most helpful regarding which pieces to put in place, but I think I need to configure my yum.conf file to go to the atrpms servers for these pieces. Do you have any knowledge of how to get yum to do this?

Regards

John

    Vlad~

    Thanks for the reply. The exact output from uname –r gives:
    2.6.6-1.435.2.3

    The output from uname –a gives:

    Lnux nebo 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 #1 Thu Jul 1 08:25:29 EDT 2004 i686 i686
    i386 GNU/Linux

    Hence the confusion…

    I hope you can help. I’m a little confused by the combination of
    i686 and i386…

    Regards

    John

    Hey, John --

    Type **uname -r** it will tell you which kernel you are actually
    running, both the Linux version and the Redhat release.
    i586 or i686 are kernel versions. if you are running the i386
    kernel, _EVEN IF YOU HAVE AN i686 CPU_, you must use the i386 RPMs.

    cheers!

        I am trying to install the ipw2100 wireless on my Insprion
        8600 notebook.

        I originally installed FC2 2.6.5-1.358, and have since then
        upgraded to 2.6.6.1-435.2.3 using up2date. When I run the make
        file (builds external) I get an error saying that ieee802_11.h
        is not found. The file exists under the /usr/src directory for
        the original kernel. My guess is that I need to download the
        source for the kernel I updated to. I have found the packages
        for both kernel-source and the modules, but they are listed as
        i586 and i686 (there are 64-bit as well, but I don’t have that
        system type). Can anyone tell me which of these I should get?
        I am somewhat new at this, so any input is appreciated.

        Regards,

        John

Go to this link:

http://www.atrpms.net/install.html

This shows you how to modify your existing yum.conf file to use atrpms.net as a resource.

Basically you need to add this to the bottom of your /etc/yum.conf file:

| [at-stable]
name=ATrpms for Fedora Core $releasever stable
baseurl=http://apt.physik.fu-berlin.de/fedora/$releasever/en/$basearch/at-stable
