I use a 64-bit Linux Mint 12. I discover that Mint's Linux kernel does not have Compat-wireless drivers. Compat-wireless is a package which contains the development and stable versions of the in-kernel wireless drivers and the mac80211 wireless stack: http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Download/stable/
For example, this stuff is useful to put a wireless card in monitor mode.
Is it possible to have it on the next Linux Mint releases?
