Topic: Atheros driver from NetBSD-current in NetBSD-stable?

Dear All:

I just installed NetBSD 5.0.1 on my brand new HP Desktop (AMD64).

The installation went perfectly and I love this OS, but my wireless card is not recognized (Atheros AR9281).
I noticed that the new ath driver in -current supports it, but I don't want to run current.

Is there a way to just pull that driver into NetBSD 5.0 ??

Thank you!!

Re: Atheros driver from NetBSD-current in NetBSD-stable?

I would say no. In most cases there are too many changes between stable and current to bring a single file (or a few of them) from current to stable.

You could still try it though.

<wintellect> NetBSD users are smart enough to accept that there's no 3D support tongue
