Getting MADWifi

Until such time as there is a release, the best way of getting MADWifi is to get it out of the MADWifi Subversion Repository.

Downloading from madwifi.org

in:

  • The "new code" (the stuff that Atheros released as preview snapshot, aka "madwifi-ng"):
    svn checkout http://svn.madwifi.org/trunk madwifi-ng
    
  • The "old code" (that's basically what was CVS HEAD up to now):
    svn checkout http://svn.madwifi.org/branches/madwifi-old madwifi-old
    

If you're behind a proxy, then make sure subversion knows about it. See http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#proxy, or your 'servers' file for more info.

Once you have the source tree you can easily update to the latest version at anytime with a quick update and recompile.

svn update

And don't forget to read the svn manual page.

Downloading the latest Snapshots

If you can't handle SVN, or just don't have a net connection, you could download madwifi using HTTP (on another machine, if needs be). Tarballs for the new code can be found at http://snapshots.madwifi.org. The old code can be found at http://madwifi.otaku42.de (including the latest experimental drivers - still gets updated).

Downloading .debs

If you are a debian user, then good for you! You can download debs from:

The ongoing work to get madwifi finally into Debian proper is being done as a Debian Alioth project:

Downloading .rpms

  • [Fedora users: The tarball has a madwifi.spec embedded. If you do rpmbuild --ta <tar ball> you will get your packages]
