Subject:Patch to compile orinoco-0.13-dragorn-2.6.17 on PPC
Date:09:03:12 31/10/2006

Managed to get orinoco-0.13-dragorn-2.6.17 working on PPC
However - this driver does not work with NetworkManager, so one has to use some other means to connect to AP's.
Would it be an enormous effort to backport scanning capabilities to the orinoco-0.13 tree?

hardware:
Tibook 1Ghz Edgy PPC

Here is the patch:
