We are working with WIFI module wl12xx on dm6446 evm boad.i am able to do conenctivity and other things using the latest version of linux. but now i need this wifi driver WL12xx driver on montavista linux(linux_2.6.18).I started to port first sdio driver ,in this case i am getting somany unkown errors and resolving them ,creating kernel built problem.can any one please guide us to backport the driver .
Thanks and regards ,
Porting to Linux 2.6.18 is challenging mostly because of the MMC driver, you will have to back port MMC patches from the latest linux kernel to Linux 2.6.18.
As for the WLAN you can use the Compat wireless please try from http://linuxwireless.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/ in addition please go to http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Download to understand better about the compat
Thanks for reply. I need some more information on this ,where can i get this MMC/SD patches of linux for montavista linux 2.6.18.
can you please provide some link .
I dont have the MMC patches for linux 2.6.18 since we support linux 2.6.37 version however please try Linux forums
I have tried to backport the both the driver mmc and wifi(wl12xx) . because the functionalities and using struct is different so i am not able to fix this problem .and that i have searched so may web site for mmc patches but i am not able to find them. please suggest some way to work further.
Thanks and Regards,
There is no easy way to handle it, for WLAN try using compat wireless, its port automatically the WLAN and SDIO wrapper to older Linux releases. For more information refer to http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Download/hacking#Git_trees_you_will_need
But as far as MMC driver, I am not aware of automatic way to handle it.
