Description Andrew Gaffney (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-16 07:48:59 UTC
There was a major change committed to the madwifi CVS yesterday that fixes the 'ath0: NETDEV WATCHDOG: transmit timed out' messages for people with Atheros 5211 chipsets (most Atheros a/b cards) on the x86 platform. It was checked in around noon CDT on 20040515. I would give a URL to the message on the madwifi-users mailing list archive, but SF stopped archiving the list around April for some reason.

Okay, thanks for the info. I will try to get an updated version in later this week, if not sooner.
Comment 2 solar (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-09-06 12:38:51 UTC
madwifi-driver-0.1_pre20040906 and madwifi-tools-0.1_pre20040906 
are both in the tree now. This should work for everybody.

emerge rsync
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS=~x86 emerge madwifi-driver madwifi-tools

Please test and CLOSE appropriate bugs if this solves the problem anybody was

Once again... Test Request since it's been 4 months and we've worked on this situation extensively.
Comment 4 Andrew Gaffney (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-09-22 09:51:50 UTC
Sorry, I haven't really used my laptop in about 4 months. Even when I have, I already managed to get madwifi working, so I don't want to mess with it.
Comment 5 Henrik Brix Andersen 2004-12-29 06:23:18 UTC
Closing due to lack of feedback.
