MadWifi - a Linux kernel device driver for Wireless LAN chipsets from Atheros.

NOTE: MadWifi and earlier do NOT compile against kernel 2.6.19 and
higher. MadWifi 0.9.3 will address this issue. SlackBuilds for
madwifi-tools and madwifi-driver will be updated when 0.9.3 is

A wireless card compatibility matrix is available at:

This SlackBuild builds the madwifi tools, not the kernel module. You will
need to use the "madwifi-driver" SlackBuild to build the madwifi module for
your kernel version.

Requirements for configuring the wireless card:
iwconfig -- part of "wireless-tools" package in /n for Slackware 11.0
wpa_supplicant -- if you use WPA encryption.
-- Available in /testing for Slackware 11.0

NOTE: You can place the SlackBuild and slack-desc.{tools,driver} files
in the same directory without conflicts, and then you only have to
keep one copy of the madwifi source code around...
