Description hirakendu 2009-05-29 07:10:55 UTC
madwifi-ng is in a mess in general. (ath5k/9k should instead suffice). gcc-4.4 complains that frame-size greater than 1024 bytes is used. may update to latest svn and use a patch for gcc-4.4

Reproducible: Always

Thank you for report hirakendu. Looks like inability to build with gcc-4.4 was fixed in madwifi-ng- Please test it. If there are any further problems you'd like to address, please, open new bug(s).
