The good and easy solution to your problem is installing OpenBSD. It's much more flexible than YDL and has the ports system.

Hey y'all,

got a quick q for you..

i am running a 1st generation powerbook 17 with a senao cd2511-ext card
and the ioxperts driver. i am running 10.3.9.

the card is super buggy with the sourceforge driver, but works with the
ioxperts driver for normal use.

BUT if i start using Kismac, there will inevitably be problems
unloading the driver and i end up rebooting every few days..

Can anyone else verify this problem?  If people can verify it, the next
step is can anyone recommend a new setup for me?

fwiw, i also tried a cisco aironet lmc352 and used cisco's osx driver,
but it would never unload to let kismac load.. so i'm trying to figure
out if something is jacked in my system or if i've just picked the
wrong cards / drivers.

i want to stay pc card instead of usb. i definitely like the whole high
power + external antenna bit, but i totally want to be able to load and
unload kismac whenever i want without destabilizing my system.

i will eventually be loading yellow dog linux or free bsd to dual boot
into for the really interesting stuff and it would be nice if the setup
worked there too, but that is secondary... and anyway linux and bsd
support for prisms and aironets is pretty tight.

i would like to be able to change the mac address. and while we are on
the subject of spoofing MACs, if i recompile my kernel a la:
then will i be able to spoof macs with ifconfig regardless of my card?



PS: lasse sent out this link earlier: http://www.demarctech.com/products/reliawave-rwz/reliawave-rwz-300mw- prism2-5-pcmcia-card.html

this card looks great.. anyone with a pb17 / osx10.3.9 care to comment?
