How to install ath9k wireless driver?
I just installed Puppy in a partition. It didn't recognized my wireless card. I tried to install a driver under "connect", but it is not there. My driver is an ath9k. I looked in the internet and I found it, but so far it seems that it should be installed with a package. I get information like; "should enable mac80211", or "use compat".
Does anybody know how to installed a wireless driver that is not included in the Puppy installation?
Do I have to use one of these packages? Even if I can get a tarball, What do I have to do with it after untar it? The whole thing looks complicated Rebuilding the kernel and things like that.
I didn't have any problem in this matter when I installed mandriva and ubuntu. That's why they are still there.
Can anybody help?
