Atheros AR5BXB63 on Felicia

Postby Nubby on Sat Dec 20, 2008 10:01 pm

My laptop comes with an Atheros AR5BXB63 card. Felicia auto-installs the correct madwifi driver but not the correct hal.

A new HAL has been made available by Sam Leffler ( that supports AR2425 chips (AR5007* chipsets). This is a full HAL release so it should work for all platforms - that means x86-64.

Would be nice if this hal comes into Felicia soon.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Well Felicia is released and as such will not be changed (unless we discover a really serious problem) but to have it in the repos would be nice - I'll see what I can do - but a new hal may be a bit....
Does it work for you now?
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
