I have installed netbsd on my workpad z50 using a 128M CF for
the base system and NFS mounting the remainder. This works reasonably well
with two issues.
1. I get periodic messages of the form:-
where the numbers change with each message.
I think this is telling me that the kernel I have (netbsd-GENERIC) is not
using the correct driver for the trackpoint. Can anyone shed light on this?
2. I wish to use a Cisco Aironet 350 wireless card. This is detetced OK and
when I set the SSID correctly I can see it trying to associate with my base
station. However I need to turn on WEP using the long key. When I try to
give it the long key using:-
ifconfig an0 nwkey <key>
where key is 0x<26 hex digits>
I get messages about invalid key.
Does ifconfig handle the long keys?
Does the aironet driver handle long keys?
