Resources

This page intends to give you a brief overview of the various resources that are related to the MadWifi project.

Wiki

Well, you most probably know this already, since you're knee-deep in it ;-)

Recent Activity

The Timeline tells you about all the things that happened during the last days and weeks. It reports about changes to the code repository, tickets or the wiki. TracTimeline has a general description of this facility.

Bug/Patch/Feature Request Tracker

That's the place where all bug reports, user-submitted patches for fixing bugs or feature requests go to.

Click on View Tickets to take a look at the different issues which already have been reported. If you want to add a new issue, click on New Ticket. TracReports gives you further information on how to use this facility.

If you want to submit patches please these guidelines.

Subversion Repository (MadWifi)

The MadWifi source code is managed in a Subversion repository. You can access the source by clicking on Browse Source on the left, or by checking out a working copy by following the instructions in UserDocs/GettingMadwifi.

Write access to the repository is restricted. DevDocs/WriteAccess explains what to do if you want to be able to commit source directly to the repository.

Code Tarballs (MadWifi)

Once a day a tarball is generated from the most recent MadWifi code. These tarballs are available for download in the Snapshot Archive. This might be useful for users who don't want to mess with Subversion.

IRC channel

In case you have an urgent problem, or you want to keep closer, more real-time contact with the community, you should consider to visit our IRC channel #madwifi in the Freenode network. Ask about installation or configuration problems, or join just for talking to other MadWifi and ath5k users and some of the developers.

For your convenience there is also a webinterface that allows you to visit #madwifi even if you don't have an IRC client at hands.

The IRC channel is logged here: http://madwifi-project.org/irclogs/

If you're new to IRC and/or Freenode in special we ask you to make yourself familiar with the Freenode philosophy, especially the Channel guidelines. They are a valuable reading even if you used IRC several times before.

Documentation

The MadWifi sources already contain minimal information about building and installing the driver, but there is much more documentation about installing MadWifi on various linux distributions, and many HOWTO's and guides for various aspects of the operation of the driver, in the UserDocs section, with extra information for developers in the DevDocs area.
