Has anyone had any luck in using KisMac with the Sourceforge
driver in 10.3.x?
So far as I can tell, nothing has changed on this subject since the
last time you posted this message. The SourceForge Wireless driver
doesn't work with 10.3.

Actually, the distribution SourceForge Wireless Driver does work in
Panther by itself to access a network. The trouble starts when you
install KisMac with the patch and then try to scan for networks.
first of all a small reference: please don't write 3 mails with the
same content. i wont answer those.
now to the problem. looks to me like a kext-caching problem. the
crashes and the not working mac utility can mean only one thing: the
patch is not installed correctly. i am actually currently writing on a
10.3.4 from a prism2 card with the mac 00:20:30:40:50:60. i have not
had a chance to test this on an orinoco card. (also this will change
soon, thanks to ard ;o). so the tools works. now lets check.
1. make sure /System/Library/Extensions/WirelessDriver.kext/bipatch
exists on your system
2. make sure
WirelessDriver 's file time is the date of your kismac install
3. make sure /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache is from the date of
4. make sure /System/Library/Extensions.mkext is from the date of the
5. make sure sudo kextunload -b org.noncontiguous.WirelessDriver and
sudo kextload -b org.noncontiguous.WirelessDriver work
if any of these fail please try the following:
1. disable the device in the network preferences and try to unload then
2. install GTDriver and remove it again (will rebuilt your kext cache)
however this works out - please tell me the results! i cannot help you
