Re: any support for Atheros AR9285 wireless and AR8132 ethernet?

HI Pierre,

thanks for posting the patches,

I'm not entirely familiar with kernel drivers, (look forward to working with them though)
have some simple questions...

from your post:

I'm getting stuck on the last step

adding "alc* at pci? dev? function?"

gives me the following message when I try to config the kernel

"error unknown device 'alc'"

is there a different syntax I should be using to add the "alc" device to my kernel config?

Hi !

I tried to port OpenBSD's alc(4) driver to NetBSD. It's not fully
working, but at least I can use my network card.
If you are really in hurry, you can try my crappy patches:
However you would better fully recode it (for example, dhcp is not working...).
(and I would benefit from your work :P )
Good luck !
