Problem installing wlan card [solved]

I habe problem using my wlan card in my laptop. In fact it isn't even recognised.

lspci gives the following output:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile Memory Controller Hub (rev 03)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile PCI Express Graphics Port (rev 03)

I think the highlighted line should be the wlan card.

Windows says, it's a Intel(R) Pro/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection.

So I downloaded the ipw3945 stuff, loaded the module and tried to start the daemon. But the daemon fails to start. Error message: "No such file or directory".

Has anyone an idea?

Did you follow the instructions in the wiki ?
Wireless_Setup#ipw3945


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.

clean chroot building to complicated ?

Re: Problem installing wlan card [solved]

Yes, I followed the instructions in the wiki.
I installed those packages.
Added ipw3945 to modules() and ipw3945d to daemons().

iwconfig says:
lo no wireless extensions
eth0 no wireless extensions
eth1 no wireless extensions


I recently tried knoppix but it couldn't detect the card either.

Re: Problem installing wlan card [solved]

please post the networking section of rc.conf and your /etc/conf.d/wireless file.

The brand and type of your laptop along with the output of

lsmod |grep ipw

might also help.

Re: Problem installing wlan card [solved]

Finally I managed to install the card.
I have a Core2Duo and am trying to use Arch64.
The ipw3945d package contains the i686 binary. So I downloaded the the right binary.

Where should I report the error?
