Subject:Orinoco with Slackware 10.2 w/ 2.4.31
Date:06:18:06 22/06/2006

Hi guys,
I'm a little confused here about patching my Orinoco drivers.
Now I'll start with listing off my setup:
Toshiba Satellite 2540CDS
Orinoco Gold PC24E-H-FC
Slackware 10.2 w/ kernel 2.4.31
pcmcia-cs version 3.2.8

Now here's my confusion:
There doesn't appear to be a patch for this listed on this site.
I've got the card working, but when I do iwpriv there is no monitor mode.
So I figure I need to enable monitor mode on this card.
I can't tell what version of orinoco_cs drivers I'm running...

Someone at least point me in the right direction and I'll work from there (I don't like spoonfed answers).
Should I be patching these drivers? If so with which patch?
Should I be downgrading to pcmcia-cs 3.2.7?

All help much appreciated.
