New Revision: 34663
Changeset: http://dev.haiku-os.org/changeset/34663/haiku

* The ralinkwifi driver links now.
* There is firmware needed, which can be distributed with Haiku:

Since some of these firmware can be distributed with haiku, doesn't it
make sense to add them as OptionalPackages, at least ?

On step after another :) As there are different license issues included with firmwares of different vendors, there is a need for discussion how to handle this. Currently there is a wiki (http://dev.haiku-os.org/wiki/WirelessFirmwares) for collecting the different issues, and for preparing a solid base for a discussion on how to handle this.

Can I assume that you are owning a ralink based wifi chipset?

Kind Regards
