Trying to install RE: ipw2100-firmware-1.1-1.0.dag (through synaptic) I get this error:
Code:

While installing package ipw2100-firmware-1.1-1.0.dag:

(synaptic:4490): Gtk-CRITICAL **: file gtklabel.c: line 1009 (gtk_label_set_label): assertion `str != NULL' failed


Perhaps I have the wrong Gtk installed ? Any idea where to go from here. Also a little stuck with the 2100 driver in general, does anyone have useful experience? Once I have installed this rpm does that mean I will have access to the device thru iwconfig, or are there further steps to take?
--update--
OK, so I need the 2100 drivers now,I cannot find these in the repository. I can see them on this site http://atrpms.net/dist/rh9/ipw2100/ but only for 20-35.9 (I am running 20-30.9), and many many things depend on that so am not too keen on changing...

Try downloading the RPM to your hard drive then just `rpm -Uvh yada.rpm` it...

I haven't used those drivers. Did you get yerself a new thinkpad? ;)

Do you need another RPM. I didn't see that there was one. Check out:

Code:
[root@LUCI root]# insmod ipw2100
insmod: ipw2100: no module by that name found


Am I missing something?

OK I should clarify:

I cannot do anything with simply the firmware, so I install http://atrpms.net/dist/rh9/ipw2100/ipw2100-0.51-14.rh9.at.i386.rpm

That fails dependency:
Code:
error: Failed dependencies:
        kernel-module-ipw2100-0.51-14.rh9.at is needed by ipw2100-0.51-14.rh9.at[root@LUCI 2100]#


now theres no kernel module 20-30.9 rpm. So i download:
http://download.atrpms.net/testing/sources/redhat-9-i386/atrpms/ipw2100-0.51-14.rh9.at.src.rpm

When I make, I get :

Where am I going wrong?

The line where it failed is this:

ipw2100_fw.c:51:28: linux/firmware.h: No such file or directory


Is there a firmware.h in any of the files you've got there? Like the ipw2100-firmware RPM?

Or grab this file:
http://download.atrpms.net/testing/sources/redhat-9-i386/atrpms/ipw2100-0.51-14.rh9.at.src.rpm

and do this:

Code:
rpm -Uvh ipw2100-0.51-14.rh9.at.src.rpm
cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
vi ipw2100.spec   (or whatever its called)
rpmbuild -bb ipw2100.spec
rpmbuild -bs ipw2100.spec


Perhaps...

Code:

[root@LUCI SPECS]# rpmbuild -bb ipw2100-0.51-14.rh9.at.spec
error: line 1: Unknown tag: %kmdl ipw2100

Oh yeah. Um, kernel module RPMs are kinda tricky to build...sry
