I have a netbook eeepc701 and I would like to set up wifi connection on slitaz-base-3.0 image with minimal configuration and the minimum number of packages. I do not need a GUI, as on this unit a weak processor and little memory.
lspci: (network card)
01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5007EG 802.11 b / g Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Technology Corp. L2 100 Mbit Ethernet Adapter (rev a0)
I ran slitaz-3.0 openbox in wifi adapter works and the network is installed without any problems, you need only specify the settings netbox "wlan0", select the network, and a password. Using the command "ifconfig-a" I got a list in which there is wlan0.
But in slitaz-base, I can not get interface wlan0. I tried to solve this problem in the search for www, and found some instructions for setting up wifi. Most of them are written, if ifconfig-a does not exhibit the desired interface, no drivers for it and is not enabled on this interface in the kernel Linux.
If I understand correctly, the Atheros driver in the kernel is 18.104.22.168-slitaz, I need to install the correct driver. I tried to install the packages, which contain wifi * wifi-firmware *, etc. but the results are not received. There were also attempts to download and compile a new kernel 3.3.1, but I have too little experience to do so.
Search the forums I found a topic http://forum.slitaz.org/topic/slitaz-wireless-some-tips-if-you-have-troubles#post-4980 following the instructions, I downloaded a newer stable version http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless-3.0-stable/v3.4/compat-wireless-3.4-rc1-2.tar.bz2 unpacked, but during the installation (make install) I get an error "no rule to make target (modules install) ". I'm not sure what is right has launched a tool compat-wireless: ". / Scripts / driver-select ath5k", make, make install. Bash also gave me several warnings for the locale "us".
Can you help me?
