Ticket Summary Status Owner Type Priority Milestone
40Ticket handling guidelines for developersassignedmrenzmanntaskminor

Reported by mrenzmann, 10/24/05 14:03:50:

Start a page that gives some general guidelines for developers about how to handle tickets. Such as: "assign a ticket to yourself before actually starting to work on it", "when accepting tickets, try to assign them to an appropriate milestone", "don't accept tickets as long as necessary information is missing", and so on.

231Site enhancement for including man pagesnewmrenzmannenhancementminor

Reported by awol@otaku42.de, 12/15/05 12:45:02:

By installing man2html and some clever scripting madwifi.org could perhaps provide an online source for man pages that are included with the driver. It would only be necessary to regenerate the man pages after any changes to them in the trunk of course. So this need not be too demanding on the host system.

1036Document and explain possible error messagesnewenhancementminor

Reported by mrenzmann, 12/08/06 09:48:34:

The NetBSD man-page for their ath driver has a nice selection of possible error messages, along with a description of what they mean. We should adapt that, for inclusion in the users guide for example.

2156changing regdomain on AR242xnew--enhancementminor--

Reported by alex@digriz.org.uk, 10/13/08 14:41:59:

For those plagued with an ill-regioned wifi card such as mine (was in 0x3A, for the US):

0c:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Fujitsu Limited. Device 139c
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 18
        Memory at fc200000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
        Capabilities: <access denied>
        Kernel driver in use: ath_pci
        Kernel modules: ath_pci

Running the following works nicely. I finally have channel 13...."welcome to jolly ol' england lappy":

ath_info -v -g 3:0 -w fc200000 regdomain 0x00

Some possible interesting spiel:

2270Supported chipsetsnew--enhancementminor--

Reported by zersaa@gmail.com, 03/26/09 15:06:15:

In readme.txt says:

5210 supports 11a only 5211 supports both 11a and 11b 5212 supports 11a, 11b, and 11g

But the list is much longer, is not it? Please write all supported chipsets in wiki and in readme.txt for 0.9.4 and for 0.10.5.6

324Update documentation: iwpriv "roaming" => "hostroaming"newtasktrivial

Reported by mrenzmann, 01/19/06 15:52:31:

r1403 changed the name of the name of the private ioctl roaming to hostroaming (and get_roaming to get_hostroaming) in order to work around a bug in iwpriv. Documentation needs to be updated accordingly, especially the users guide.

486document ack bitrate sysctl'snewtasktrivialversion 1.0.0 - first stable release

Reported by kelmo, 03/22/06 01:35:04:

We should document the sysctl's added in r1478.

527document wext complianceassignedkelmotasktrivialversion 1.0.0 - first stable release

Reported by kelmo, 04/12/06 14:28:29:

We should adjust our docs to reflect the additional wext ioctl's committed in r1499.
