    55There are several ways to get your copy of MadWifi. Stable releases are offered as tarballs which can be downloaded from the several sourceforge.net download mirrors. In order to be on the bleeding edge of the development you should use Subversion to get the latest code from trunk. We also offer tarballs of the latest revisions for those of you that don't want to mess with Subversion. And if you don't want to touch a compiler at all you can get precompiled packages for the distribution you're using. 
    1515Change to a location where you want to keep the sources. Then type: 
    1616{{{ 
    17 svn checkout http://svn.madwifi.org/madwifi/trunk madwifi 
     17svn checkout http://svn.madwifi-project.org/madwifi/trunk madwifi

    31 Beware though that '''svn''' makes use of HTTP methods not supported by all http-proxies out there. If yours happens to be one of those, you need to setup some kind of tunneling or TCP-redirector, depending on how much control/access you have on your net. Or, if the repository supports it (that seems not the case for svn.madwifi.org), use HTTPS which usually is proxied transparently.

    3333The above commands stores the source in a subdirectory called ''madwifi''. To update to the current version of the source at a later time you just need to change to that subdirectory and type:

    45 If you can't (or don't want to) handle Subversion, or just don't have a net connection, you could download MadWifi using HTTP (on another machine, if need be). Tarballs for the ''madwifi-ng'' and ''madwifi-old'' code can be found at [http://snapshots.madwifi.org]. However, please note that ''madwifi-old'' is deprecated and unsupported, and you shouldn't use it at all.

    4949If you are a [http://www.debian.org Debian] user, then good for you! You can download debs from: 
    5050 * [http://alioth.debian.org/projects/pkg-madwifi/ Alioth pkg-madwifi project releases] are described on '''[wiki:UserDocs/Distro/Debian the Debian UserDocs page]'''. 
    51  * Or from [http://www.marlow.dk/madwifi Martin List-Petersen] who has full instructions on using ''make-kpkg'' (note that this uses madwifi-old, not madwifi-ng).

    5352Precompiled kernel modules for using it on WRAP and soekris: 
    6564 * Fedora users: pre-built RPMs with experimental support for AR5007 chipsets (based on the patch from #1679) for Fedora 8 can be found [http://tchung.fedorapeople.org/madwifi/ar2425/ here]. 
    6665 
    67  * Fedora users: The tarball has a madwifi.spec embedded. If you do rpmbuild --ta <tar ball> you will get your packages. ( In the case you have http://snapshots.madwifi.org/madwifi-ng-current.tar.gz, you need first to rename it in the format madwifi-ng-rxxx-date.tar.gz ; an easy way is to do a tar tvf of the current tar ball and get the real archive filename). 
     66 * Fedora users: The tarball has a madwifi.spec embedded. If you do {{{rpmbuild --ta <tar ball>}}} you will get your packages. ( In the case you have http://snapshots.madwifi-project.org/madwifi-ng-current.tar.gz, you need first to rename it in the format madwifi-ng-rxxx-date.tar.gz ; an easy way is to do a {{{tar tvf}}} of the current tarball and get the real archive filename).
